What people are saying about River Tours in Hobart
Covered long distances on this tour. My favorites were visiting wombats, echidnas and Tasmanian devils at Bonorong. The views up on Mount Wellington were fantastic! The guide/ driver was very knowledgeable and friendly. The weather was very nice, a bit chilly in the morning but warmed up. A great tour for a solo or group traveler!
We enjoyed the trek in Mt. Fields to the gorgeous horseshoe and russel waterfalls. Bonorong was also amazing as we get to feed the kangaroos, saw the Tasmanian devil, koalas, etc. The village of Richmond is also nice. I especially love the picturesque bridge, great photo op. Finally, Mt. Wellington. We were able to see the Tasmania. Our guide Jarrod is also nice and helpful, he picked us up at our hotel and also dropped us off afterwards. I would definitely recommend this tour.
I joined the Mt. Field, Mt. Wellington, Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary and Richmond Day Tour from Hobart with iWander Tasmania. The tour guide and driver, Jarrod Dunn, showed us the best of Tasmania. I loved the waterfalls of Mt. Wellington and enjoyed a relaxing afternoon in Richmond. Thank you Jarrod and I am sure that I will join another tour the next time I visit Tasmania.
It’s a fascinating day tour although its a rainy day. It does not spoil the journey and destination visited with raincoat/umbrella on hands. Get to enjoy the scenic view in Hobart in a different kind of weather condition! Highly recommended this tour with a kind tour guide that explained the story of Hobart along the journey!
This daytrip tour was amazing! Jarrod was a great guide with lots of local knowledge and history. Going up Mt. Wellington was particularly exciting, with great 360 degree views. I also enjoyed the Richmond tour where we had lunch, bought icecream and took photos of the oldest bridge in Australia. The Bonorong Sanctuary is also a must see! Overall, this is highly recommended if you have a day to spare in Hobart.
My tour on 16 Jun had to be rescheduled because I was suddenly informed that there was no tour on 16 Jun. Fortunately I had another alternative date before I left Hobart and thankfully they still had vacancies on that day.
Jarrod picked us up from our Airbnb with his 11-seater and I realised that all his passengers that day were Asians. Being a small group was an advantage - getting in and out of the vehicle is faster.
Jarrod was knowledgeable as he introduced us to the places we passed, visited and things we saw. He was also obliging in helping us take photos. The trail at Mt Field was manageable though the ground was damp so suitable footwear is recommended. Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary is not to be missed. Each of us was given a pack of kangaroo feed and we had fun feeding them. Jarrod also managed his time well and the moment we stepped into Bonorong, we were able to join the staff there for a guided tour to the wombat, Tassie devil and Koala.
At Richmond, we had our lunch and scallop pies were good. We had sufficient time to take photos of the Richmond Bridge and just enjoy the cool refreshing air with the ducks in the river. There were a few shops around for us to explore too.
Our last stop was Mt Wellington because the road was closed in the morning due to snow and ice. Unfortunately, the road was again closed 5 minutes before we reached it and Jarrod was very apologetic although we knew it wasn't his fault. Anyway, he took us to another lookout and even took us to Cascade Brewery which wasnt part of the itinerary. The brewery is housed in a historic building and I am glad we went there. The building has become one of my wallpapers on my phone... It is beautiful, like Richmond Bridge.
After that, we were sent back to our individual pick up locations.
A very personalised tour with a very professional guide. I had a wonderful time despite the initial anxiety over my rescheduled booking.
