    Saw very little
    There wee very few animals, but plenty of signs saying they had been released. Very poor value for the money.

    Nice day
    We had a great tour of Hobart. We are in on a Princess cruise and had organized this in advance. Theresa picked us up perfectly on time in a nice Prius. We were going to Port Arthur but road was blocked, for the Breme county show? We went to Richmond instead. Then to Lark Distillery, the Bakery, an amazing chocolate shop and up Mt Wellington for a great view. Highly recommend Personalized Tanzanian tours got up to 7 people. Thanks Theresa. Bob and Linda

    Great Tour
    Mt Wellington is a beautiful spot overlooking Hobart. It is cool and windy up there, but a great spot for photos. The town of Richmond looked nice, but unfortunately we were there on Christmas Day and most of the town was closed. The highlight of the day was the Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary. The people who run this place are angels. When an animal is injured or orphaned, it is quite often brought to this sanctuary where it is raised and brought back to health, then if possible, released back into the wild. The sanctuary is staffed by volunteers and during our visit, we could see how much they cared for these animals. Imagine giving up your Christmas day to come and volunteer at an animal sanctuary so some tourists could see the animals? I'm telling you, they are angels. It was at here that we learned that Koalas do not enjoy being held. They often make a noise when being touched and some tour operators will tell tourists that they are enjoying it. Wrong! They are showing their displeasure at being touched and held. There may be exceptions, but for the rest of our trip, we resisted posing with them for photos. Take the excursion and enjoy the views and the animals. It is a great day out in Hobart.

    Fun till Sydney!
    We had set out for a one day trip to Hobart. Theresa and Philip were very accommodating for our trip and we were very excited to go. Our flight went off without a hitch, Philip was at the airport, on point and had us in the car in minutes! Because we came early there were a few things that were not quite open and we had anticipated this occurring. Once we got to the sanctuary, I must say, there is nothing better than seeing a Tasmanian devil in Tasmania! We continued our tour had a great lunch, visited a chocolate factory and then off to Tasman national park (our request). While we took our time snapping tons of photos, upon our reaching Philip again at the meeting point, he informed us that our flight was canceled. I will skip the drama, but one sand storm later we were in panic mode. It was fantastic of Philip to keep an eye on the flight and monitoring our time so that we could optimize our experience. Tragedy struck, which would have derailed most folks, but not Philip, he was on it, followed our request and got us back to the airport promptly. If you are going to Tasmania, I encourage you to connect with this team, they are awesome and dependable!

    Animals in the WildLife Park
    For a Park being reliant on funding it is well kept - the animals enclosures are excellent - they all seem very relaxed and it is quite an experience to visit this place. A kiosk is available and the coffee is good. The toilets are clean, maybe have to queue on a busy day. Parking is easy. This is a must to visit and perhaps spend a little on a souvenir to help the place maintain their Park.

    Thoughtful guide = Lovely trip :)
    We had a three-day trip in Tasmania with Philip as our guide. We will definitely visit again if we have the chance to. Philip has shown us a lot, ranging from breath-taking scenery to mouth-watering seafood. He spared no effort in making sure we had what we needed. We are grateful for how he accommodated our requests, especially our baby’s. It’s a delight to chat with him, be entertained by his great sense of humor and get to know more about the place, its history and culture. He’s also a reliable driver.

    Our guide personlised the tour to suit both our knowledge and our needs - introducing us to key distillery staff who went into the kind of geeky detail that fellow distillers love! Tastings were great and some great stories too about Hobart. Thoroughly worth while.

    If you want a hassle-free, stress-free, lazy holiday...
    Just want to update that we did took the tour with Personalised Tasmanian Tour with Philip and Theresa in December 2016, and I highly recommend them. Philip went out all the way to make us comfortable, including searching for the nearest KFC when we felt like eating some junk food, took us grocery shopping when we needed to stock up some frozen food for Christmas day (almost no restaurants opened in Hobart on Christmas day). Nothing was too much for us, satisfied clients! If you would like to book a tour with Philip and Theresa, I highly suggest that upfront you mention your preferences, your likes and dislikes, and your budget. For example, we were not really interested to try out fancy restaurants, and we informed Philip on the first day we arrived, so Theresa changed the itinerary and left the restaurant choices to us. What we did was we stopped along the way to grab a sandwich or something really quick. Also, we stated our budget for the hotel, we did not want anything too expensive, and Theresa was able to work around that to the number that we were comfortable with. It is indeed, PERSONALISED! Of course, private tour is not cheap, but you will be benefited from the economic of scale and their vast connections. We did some calculations, and found out that even if we spent more money for being pampered and catered on a private tour, we saved some money in hotels. Most of all, it's a hassle free and stress free way to travel. The only exception not to book them is if you prefer to drive yourself and like a chatty tour guide type who gives long and long explanation about every place you visit. We prefer to do our own thing, search on Google for history of the places we visit, and be left to ourselves, BUT at that time, we did not care to stress ourselves out by taking care of everything ourselves. Again, highly recommended if you want a hassle, stress free holiday, where you can just sit and relax and let other people taking care of all your needs, and you don't mind paying more.

    Less 'tour'; more 'driver'
    Unless you have your own car (consider it!), it's hard to get around unless you restrict yourself to Hobart town. (Even then, you need transportation from the airport.) We opted to book a couple of tours. This was one. Theresa is a lovely lady but I would not call this a 'tour' as much as a private driver. We were taken to Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary which was OK. It's nice that it is an animal rescue and sanctuary; otherwise, I'd consider it too small to be much fun. The highlight, of course, is seeing the devils. We then stopped at the old Catholic church - 5 minutes, check. We then had lunch (don't forget, you pay) at a very so-so diner and were left to wander around Richmond a while - check. We then stopped at the cheese shop and had a few samples - check. (In all fairness, we did buy one cheese which was wonderful on our foodless plane ride back to Melbourne.) All in all, an OK day but I'd recommend getting your own car and doing a self drive.
