Fabulous tour guide Phil. Very informative, easy to listen to and even laughed at his jokes. A long day thathat was very enjoyable

This historical location is sad yet historical. Take a walking tour to learn about the history of the site and more recently the massacre that occurred there. The way the convicts were treated broke ground on treatment and new methods of imprisonment. About 1.5 hours from Hobart on fully tar roads the drive is well worth the effort. The site has plenty of free parking and entry fees apply, which includes the walking tour and 25 minute bay cruise. This is a must see.

Had a fantastic day out with our driver Mark. His knowledge, his personality helped make the trip a very interesting one and certainly kept us all awake. Could not fault the day and well worth the cost

Great day although not really long enough at Port Arthur, felt a bit rushed as there is so much to see. Peninsula stops were fantastic

Our tour guide Paul was really knowledgeable and shared a lot of local information. My only disappointment was that we got to Richmond at roughly 8.45, and none of the shops were open.

Would recommend this trip. The group is small and the tour guide Connor was excellent very knowledgable and also speaks well and has a great sense of humour. The walk along the Tasman was fab and easy enough but those that didnt want to wasnt a problem. Port Arthur was amazing and also have the option prior to that to visit the unzoo and see the Tasmanian Devils for 10 dollars extra. I woyld recommend this too. Really good tour and would definitely use the tour company again.

Throughly enjoyed our day trip to Port Arthur. All the guides were interesting and informative. Port Arthur was well looked after.

tina d February 2019

i've done alot of tours in my time, but this one beats them all, our leader Mark, was so knowledable, funny and had us on our toes. he really did his homework, and made the day enjoyable, and so much fun. i haven't laughed so much in a long time. would definately go again and use this company and make sure we get mark back again. thanks for a memorable day out

The tour to Port Arthur started at 7.50. we were picked from near the Hotel Ibis.Richmond village was quaint, peaceful and delightful There was a 1823 bridge made by convicts in Richmond village . Port Arthu is a World heritage site now. A guided tour around showed us the conditions in which the convicts lived. It was indeed a trip into history.The Tasman arch and Devils kitchen site later were also picturesque. Phil driver of Grayline kept us occupied throughout and suggested an excellent lunch of pumpkin soup and fish!

My wife and I visited Port Arthur from Richmond. It's a fascinating historical site of a former prison/convict establishment. Excellent guides, well preserved buildings and a lovely boat ride around the harbour. We learnt a lot about our own history and how convicts were treated/mistreated; and how the mix of prison staff, army and civilians lived during the 1830-70s when it was closed to new convicts. If you are interested in history and want an educational day out Port Arthur is a must see.

Bus driver Rob helped to make the day as enjoyable as it was. Stopped at a few places along the way such as Richmond which was scenic and needed to have the camera ready. Great bakery there too. Spent four hours at Port Arthur, and needed every minute to try and see or read as much as you could. The ferry ride which was included in the package was enjoyable and allowed some time to sit before heading back on land to visit more buildings. Stopping at a chocolate place on the way back to Hobart was a treat. The bus was a small 12 seater, but with regular stops, it didn't feel too cramped. Great group of people from many different places on the bus which made the trip more enjoyable and fun.

Rapha December 2017

Good tour. The guide was very relaxed, which was nice but also annoying when some people on the tour took too long at each stop. It meant the day was longer than expected. We had more time than we needed at Port Arthur, but it is definitely worth seeing. Richmond is a cute town too.

Andrea H December 2017

Honestly there wasn't a lot of info given by the tour driver ... considering that all I really wanted was transport to Port Arthur and to wander there on my own, that was okay, but then they tried cutting the time there short because some of the others in the group were bored. Not cool. The stop in Richmond could have been much better - it was a 10 minute walk to go take photos of a bridge and bathroom/coffee shop break. Didn't even bother commenting on the old jail that would have been interesting to visit, or give any proper time to wander through town - even a 30 minute free-for-all stop would have been better.

Jenny L November 2017

A really enjoyable day tour. Tour guide was very informative and friendly. My only complaint was not enough time spent exploring Richmond. I enjoyed Port Arthur and the Tasman Peninsula.

Natalia T December 2016

I was here in November and though I am an older lady, I ended up in a group with all youth. The guide and driver, a young man named Chris, was wonderful. I don't speak English very well and had trouble keeping up. He was very attentive to me, repeating interesting information, making sure I didn't go the wrong way, and making sure I was comfortable. He made an otherwise difficult trip very fun.

John M March 2016

I have already sent a review but I'll give it again ,It was a great experience and very informative , unfortunately I can't recall my tour guild's name but it started with S she did a great job and she was a very competent driver I am not your usual client as I am 76 but being with 9 or 10 young backpackers was great for me and don't think I spoil t for them.

Everything was in a rush. We did visited all the places listed but there was no time to fully appreciate the scenery.
Everyone had to cramped in a small van with malfunctioning a/c when the weather was sizzling hot. and there were only 2 windows in the front
The tour guide was friendly enough but could've provided more information and background on the places we visited. The pickup time was inaccurate so we had to wait for 30 mins. And we started the tour late because there were people from different locations to pick up.

We had a wonderful day visiting Port Arthur . Weather was perfect . Loved Richmond . Will visit again.
