Fun and enjoyable tour - Very well organised tour, jam packed and got to see Bruny Island in a day! My partner and I thoroughly enjoyed the tour and all of the snacks and lunch were delicious. We even got to see the white wallaby! Our tour guide James was friendly and funny, thanks for keeping us safe! I highly recommend this tour, everything was included in the costs so we didn’t need to worry about anything.

One day tour with a mix of everything - My guide Leigh has a great sense of humour, knowledgeable, and friendly. Well fed with delicious cheese, especially 1792, oysters, honey, lunch, and chocolate. Leigh recommended the Bruny Island cider (not included in the tour) and it’s divine. I wanted to have it again the day after but couldn’t find it anywhere in Hobart, regret not buying more of it while I was on the island. The scenery along the way was beautiful. The highlight were The Neck and the lighthouse. It’s one of the greatest day in Tasmania. Som

Breathtaking Bruny has it all! - What a wonderful adventure on Bruny Island. Our tour guide picked us up around the corner from our hotel. He was a local with a fabulous insight and humour into The Island history, its flora fauna, the local Palawa woman legendary Trugannini. We enjoyed local delicacies of Bruny Oysters, The Chocolate Company Honeycomb and sampled creamy local cheeses. Our pub meal didn’t disappoint served with The famous Bruny Island Cherry cider. The small tour of 12, was a perfect number. We were treated to the most spectacular views with every turn, caught a glimpse of a White Wallaby and Palemelon and climbed The second oldest lighthouse in Australia with the most dramatic coastline as its backdrop. We will return in the future. We had a fantastic experience on Bruny Island it was a perfect way to spend our 30th Wedding Anniversary I would highly recommend it.

Actually I was in my own so a “solo” option w’be great.Gad a great host/driver in Grant! Really friendly& knowledgeable. - Grant knew the area intimately as he’d grown up visiting Bruny. He’d run a business and was really friendly and looked after us without the feeling of being rushed. Thanks so much for making me welcome when I lobbed on you at 6 as well! I’ll be sure to promote your company!

Couples Day Trip to Bruny - Our first trip to Tassie and we were very excited to visit Bruny Island for the day. Our guide Rick was extremely informative and obviously is very passionate about what he does. Nothing was too much trouble and he catered for all of the different personalities on board. We loved the lighthouse tour, our yummy lunch at the pub and trying all of the different foods and treats that Bruny has to offer. A wonderful and especially scenic day. Would highly recommend.
