Judy was terrific. We had a group of 12 and she managed all aspects of the tour with humor and competence. The van was clean and the sound system allowed everyone in the van to hear all her insightful and funny comments. Even the dreary rain did not dampen her enthusiasm and energy. She even found time for a quick... More

I am so fortunate that my guests write wonderful reviews which gives other travellers an insight into what they can expect when travelling with us. For this reason I am in the position of having to turn guests away unfortunately. As they say "the Early Bird Catches the Worm". More

Judy made our entire experience a great one.... from the very beginning when she listened to our expectations and customized an itinerary, to the very end when we returned to our ship. Since Mount Wellington was covered in clouds, Judy found other beautiful scenic vistas for our group to enjoy; she suggested a wonderful performance at the Cascades Female Factory;... More

Our wonderful group for this tour was all "girls" so what better thing to do than to see a live performance of the plight of the female convicts who were sent to Van Diemans Land from England in the 1800's. Having small groups makes flexibility possible. It was a little different than usual cruise ship days but it will be... More

We spent a day and a half with Sandie, who was waiting for us when we got off the plane at the airport. We first went to Port Arthur for a personal walking tour and Sandie knew all of the must-see sights and was very knowledgeable. After a delicious picnic lunch prepared by Judy, we went up to Mount Wellington... More

Sandie gave me such a wonderful comments on your time together. It makes such a difference to have a local who knows the "ins and outs" of a place. Sandie is like travelling with a friend, always with extra local insights. She told me that your time together was much too short but unfortunately holidays are often too short. More

Judy was just the most perfect host for our day trip. She was fun, chatty and flexible to make adjustments as required. We have been doing wine tours with friends for years, but we have never committed to a driver. Now we wonder why we never did it before! It meant we could all have a few drinks, all have... More

Our day together was so much fun. Beginning with a site tour of your wonderful accommodation. It was such a relaxed day and I can understand why you have been having this wonderful annual weekend for so many years. The company was fantastic and the places we visited were all so varied. If you will have me again next year... More

We spent a day with Judy from the Celebrity Solstice Cruise Ship. Judy met us right at the port. Her instructions for the meeting place were very clear and she was easy to find. We had a large group of 20, and Judy had 2 vans waiting for our group. I had set up the tour, and made sure we... More

We did have a great day together. I preferred to keep the group in the 2 vans to make it more personalised. Sandie had the other group which always makes for a fun day. You were lucky to be in Hobart in cherry season as we do grow some amazing fruit. It was a wonderful day with everyone and everyone... More

Judy was waiting for us as soon as we got off our cruise ship, then took us to Port Arthur for a personal walking tour, a picnic lunch with everything fresh from her own garden, a stop at a small chocolate shop, and a late afternoon visit to Bonorong Wildlife Preserve (great photo ops there!). It was a wonderful day...definitely... More

There is definitely a place for the big bus groups but not for me. With our small groups it is possible to have flexibility to make some extra stops at times e.g. the Chocolate shop. It adds to the fun of the day. Everyone in the group made our day a memorable one. It was a great day. More

We had a tour on Dec 26th with Judy to Port Arthur and Richmond, and Judy was most accommodating and filled our day well. We had the feeling that we were friends rather than customers and it was apparent the Judy loves her job nearly as much as she loves the colour purple! It's a pity we were on a... More

Our day together was much too short. Unfortunately that is the nature of Cruising. My guests are not my customers, they are more than that. Everyone is special and have their own stories to share with me so it is a two way experience. I am happy to be "used" again when you return in the future. More

This was the perfect way to see Tasmania - let someone else drive and care for your every whim. We had 3 days and wanted to see Strahan, Freycinet, and Cradle Mountain. We were met at the airport by purple-clad Judy, who made all the arrangements and is a delightful and fun companion. There was a Morning Tea stop each... More

Unfortunately as all holidays go it was much too short a time together but in saying that we did cover a lot of ground and see quite a bit.

We were in Hobart on a cruise ship for one day in February. All the good things people have to say about Judy and her company are true. We were fortunate to be in Judy's van for the day.
