A great day out and would recommend to anyone. Staff and crew were very professional from beginning to end.

Great tour! Phil was an awesome tour guide and very informative! The Tasman Peninsula tour was amazing but be warned it’s not quite a “cruise” more like a boat ride so you might get a bit sea sick if it’s choppy. We were lucky enough to spot humpback whales and a massive pod of dolphins which really added to the experience! Definitely wish we had more time in Port Arthur as there is so much to see and explore here but you can always come back the next day as the ticket pass is valid over 2 days.

We had a very enjoyable day on this tour. We did the 3 hour boat cruise in the morning/early afternoon and then spent the afternoon at the Port Arthur Historic site. Hands down the boat cruise was the absolute highlight of the day. Both Andrew and Damo were fantastic in their roles of Capitan and Tour Guide on the boat. We have done these type of tours in Europe including the island of Capri but this left all of them for dead. YOU MUST DO THIS AS PART OF THE THIS TOUR. You’ll never forget it. The afternoon at Port Arthur was also good but our tour guide lacked badly in her job and my recommendation would be to look at this issue because she was very uninteresting. All in all well worth the money even just for the boat cruise. Also excellent lunch at Port Arthur. Well done. Another great day spent in Tasmania.

Fabulous experience. Covered a lot of ground in a relatively short space of time. Thoroughly recommend this tour.....even Tom’s jokes!!

Jimmy April 2021

Great day trip from Hobart, loved it! Staff were wonderful and very accommodating. Very lucky to see a big group of dolphins and seals on the cruise which was an absolute treat. Port Arthur is a must see as well, fantastically preserved site with some fascinating local history brought to life and beautiful views of the country.

Pennicott Wilderness Journeys is an excellent tour company. The tour guide, Luke was great. Knowledgeable, friendly and very helpful. Perth

Alison S February 2021

The entire trip was wonderful. Excellent staff, easy to checkin. The bus driver Tim was excellent and knowledgeable. We stopped at Port Arthur Lavender Farm for morning tea which was a range of lavender flavoured products.
Next off to the boat cruise which was excellent value for money, a wonderful experience and excellent Crew in Mitch and Chris. They made the trip fun, interesting and the time just flew. We saw some amazing scenery and wildlife in the form of seals.
Then back to Port Arthur Historical Site for lunch, which was more then expected. Admission to the site was included as well as a tour of the site. Then enough time to wander around on your own to investigate the site. Catching the bus back to Hobart, we had left at 7:45 am and returned at approx 6:00pm and had spent a very active day. Highly recommend this trip and the staff if you are wanting an informative and active trip whilst in Hobart.
