Too many people, good guide very informative and would not do this again
Apr 2021
Convict discovery tour interesting but TOO many people (over 30) on a tight bus. Half of the time we were either picking people up from resorts, dropping off at resorts or getting on and off the bus. Find another tour that limits the amount of people, do not recommend this tour.

Hi Lyn A, we have taken your comments on board. we have checked the day of tour and we had two 36 seater coaches out on the tour and we had not filled them as we like to leave some spare seats. It is a very popular tour which we run 3 times a week. We hope you enjoyed the other tours you also experienced while on island.

We did the Convict Settlement Tour with Pinetree Tours. It is recommended as you wouldn't know what all the buildings were without doing a tour. A lot of the buildings are not there anymore, but the ones that are are being kept well. Parts of the old gaol have been excavated so you can see the size of the cells (not nice). Max was our guide - very knowledgeable and passionate about the area. He had some old photographs of what some of the areas used to look like which was great. Definitely recommended

Very informative guide and a tremendous amount of history in this place.

Wonderful place to visit. So much history to be learnt. Our tours were well organised (thanks Pinetree Tours) with exceptional and informative tour guides in John and Max.
More than top marks for our accommodation at Ocean View Cottages.
We will have to return and relax some more.

Relaxing on an Island
Nov 2018
We went to Norfolk Island many years ago but did enjoy wandering around the Burnt Pine area and also the graveyard which gave an insight into the may convicts that were working and building on the Island.
