Hobart Queen's birthday weekend
Brendon grew on us. Very knowledgeable and decent. We learnt a lot. I had certain assumptions that he cleared up and information that was brand new. Steph and I had a great afternoon.

This was a very informative and enjoyable tour of Hobart taken on a Saturday morning. Lisa was extremely friendly, helpful and knowledgeable about Hobart and its history. The tour ended at the Salamanca market. Many highlights - but of great interest was the collection behind the newly built Supreme Court. I would highly recommend this walking tour and will definitely be booking some of the other tours offered by Hobart Walking Tours.

Fabulous slice of Old Hobart
Lisa spent 2 hours with myself and another couple walking through Old Hobart. The vast knowledge she has was fantastic and the stories she told on the way brought the Old Hobart to life. If you are new or old to visiting Hobart I’d recommend this tour.

Fascinating history
Our two hour tour with Deb provided a wealth of information about Hobart and Australia’s early history. Also good knowledge of indigenous matters which cleared up some popular misconceptions.

Well spent time, thanks Deb.

Informative
We enjoyed spending 2 hours with Lisa on the tour around old Hobart. Very informative and friendly. Lisa knew her stuff as she was able to answer various questions along the way. It covers the time since European settlement and highlights buildings, events and several interesting characters. She gave directions for further wandering which we did. Recommended.

Guided travel back in time.
Lisa's delightful easy going manner made learning about early Hobart a wonderful way to spend 2 hours.
A highlight for me was understanding the reason convicts were encouraged to leave their (signature) on the sandstone blocks, and how this evolved on stone work even after their sentence had finished.
Lisa's passion for Tasmanian history transported us back in time, I could almost smell the whale oil.

Thank you
We enjoyed a great walk around historic Hobart, the port area. Thank you for wonderful stories and great historical insights we were unaware of. Loved every minute of the easygoing, relaxed walk. Would definitely recommend, for adults. Might not keep the interest of younger children.
