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.

What a fantastic way to savour Bruny Island! A private tour with a knowledgable and passionate guide - thank you Jodie. We were picked up on time, travelled in air-conditioned comfort and were well looked after all day. We were able to see parts of the island and meet passionate locals normally off limits to other travellers. Sally obviously is... More

Karen Thank you for a great review, I'm sorry I wasn't able to meet you but I know you were in good hands with Judy. Bruny Island is a fantastic place and the producers do love to share their passion and stories. Come back to Tassie soon so we can introduce you more wonderful producers. More

Sally, is an excellent ambassador for Tasmania! We recently spent 2 days with her exploring the East coast - an itinerary she designed based on our wishes. As an added bonus, we felt she was perceptive in discerning our interests once we met, and she went the extra mile to show us "off the beaten path" sights she knew we'd... More

Sally is the best guide ever. She showed us all the perfect, little and yummy spots in Hobart and surroundings. She was very flexible leaving the choice to us on what how to spend our day. She certainly went the extra mile to leave us with a wonderful experience on the island.

On a cold winter day when the bus tours didn't want us due to insufficient bookings, Sally spent the day hosting my 18 year old son and I for a day-long ad-hoc adventure. An easy hike through a National Park (thanks for dropping us at the top of the hill; we're not used to elevation in Louisiana) past giant eucalyptus... More

Sally Legosz went above and beyond in giving us a tour of Hobart She was very knowledgeable, pleasant and genuinely seemed interested in giving her guests the best possible tour. She even added on a few additional stops that were not scheduled. We travelled in a small mini van that was much more comfortable and allowed for personal interaction with... More

I'm from Tasmania, went down with the girlfriend and decided to take a tour. Wow! I did not know most of the places visited on the tour existed. Seeing day old piglets was an amazing experience, only matched by the fine wine and hand made chocolates. Thank you to Sally for the amazing tour, I look forward to doing it... More

I don't think my written review will read quite as stellar as the acutal experience but I shall try. I booked a two day tour from Hobart with Sally of Herbaceous Tours.
