No more huge tour buses for us. Sally met us and 2 other couples for a most enjoyable day of visiting the best of Hobart. We thoroughly enjoyed the Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary...what remarkable work they do there and what fun to walk amongst the kangaroos, feed and pet them. We had lunch and leisure time in Richmond and a special... More

We managed to get the last three spaces on a tour with Sally which included the animal sanctuary and Richmond plus a couple of other 'surprise' visits along route. We would thoroughly recommend her tours as they are informative, very friendly and fun.

After deciding that taking a taxi to all the wineries, cideries and cheeseries around Richmond was not an option the tourist center recommended Sally to us. It was one of the best decisions we made in our holiday! She took us some back roads, showed us places off the tourist map and was incredibly knowledgeable about any question we threw... More

Thank you for your lovely review; and you are right, providing tours for people is not just a job, it's an honor and privilege as well as a responsibility to provide the best possible experience. Tasmania is a special place and it is wonderful to share all the 'hidden' gems with visitors. Please come back for another visit! More

Sally is a great guide which really take care of us like her children. She is knowledgable in her food & also initiate to make reservation for our vegetarian meal.

Had the most wonderful day travelling through the coal valley! As locals you don't often get the chance to go on wine tastings and experience some of the amazing things tassie has to offer! We went to places we'd never been before and learnt so much. Our guide Judy was wonderful, very easy going & engaging. It was like we... More

We recently did a wine and food tour with Sally from Herbaceous Tours. We had the best day. She was informative and knowledgeable not only about the food and wine but about local history and information. It was obvious that she has a great relationship with the people in the different wineries and food stops. We stopped at 3 wineries,... More

If you you are looking for a friendly host and an excellent selection of local wineries and produce ( cheese and oysters on our tour) then you can not go past Sally from Herbaceous tours. She is passionate and knowledgable and gives her guests a tour that includes local stops not on the typical trip. In a nut shell, you... More

Herbacious Tours took us on a tailored day tour of Mt Wellington, the town of Richmond, some Hobart wineries and a Whisky distillery. We found Sally to be excellent company throughout the day – extremely professional, friendly and had a fantastic knowledge of Tasmania/Hobart/our particular areas of interest. We thought her tour was extremely good value and was definitely a... More

Through a series of emails with Sally, we planned our perfect day and Judy was able to deliver. Having only one day in port, we wanted to maximize our time in Tasmania.
