Coach driver was lovely and informative. Bus was very comfortable and good value
The only bad thing was the horrendous traffic on the way up which took away from our time on the mountain. Obviously not the fault of Red Decker but a problem nonetheless for visitors to the Mountain. The tour was supposed to be from 2pm to 4pm, most of the time spent on the bus to get up to the top of the mountain because of the traffic and poor management of the traffic. There has to be a better way to get to the top and buses must have priority as they have paying customers

Dear Karen, thank you so much for leaving your fantastic review and sharing your experience with us. I am so glad to hear about your experience with our drivers! We here at Red Decker pride ourselves on great customer service! However, we also want you to feel comfortable sharing good or bad news with us. So I’m sorry that your visit to Kunanyi/Mt Wellington was spoiled a little by the traffic, thank you for also pointing out that this was not our fault as well, as you say we have no control over the traffic. Kunanyi is such a beautiful destination which means some days large amounts of people try to reach the pinnacle, and the greatest efforts are made to minimise traffic congestion. Thank you for pointing this out to us, but I am so glad you enjoyed your trip with us and we hope to see you in Hobart again!

We took the Red Decker bus to Mount Wellington and we were so pleased with the trip. There were several stops at lookout spots and the water springs on the way, which were terrific, but the best spot was the summit, with its panoramic views and excellent facilities. Luckily it was a sunny day! The driver's commentary was first class and he drove so carefully, especially on the tight corners, that we really felt very safe.

Dear Alex S, thank you for taking the time to write a review and an overview of your kunanyi/Mt Wellington tour. It sounds like you had a brilliant day for admiring the spectacular views from the mountain! I’m glad that you felt very safe onboard the mountain shuttle bus and enjoyed the commentary along the way too. Thanks again, we hope to see you again soon. Louise V, Red Decker Company.

The hop on/hop off double decker bus was a great way for us to get our bearings on our first full day here. We sat on the top deck so we had a great view and got a commentary all the way around Hobart. We booked a combo which included a 2nd bus tour up to Mt Wellington, which was spectacular. Thanks to our bus driver Christian,who drove us up the narrow road to Mt Wellington and gave a great commentary about the area and its history. Very informative, and because we booked the combo, we got a 2nd day on the hop on/hop off bus.

Dear Jan, thank you for your fantastic review. It’s lovely to know that you thoroughly enjoyed both the hop-on hop-off bus and the tour to kunanyi/Mt Wellington. This combined ticket is a great way to explore all that Hobart has to offer and take in the fabulous views from the summit of kunanyi/Mt Wellington. Thanks for passing on your thanks to Christian, your driver on the day. He’ll be so pleased that you enjoyed the trip and his informative commentary too. Thanks again, I hope that you had a lovely holiday in Hobart. Louise V, Red Decker Company.

I arrived early at the designated pick up point where another passenger, a woman who looked around 30, was also waiting,
When the driver arrived, he apologised and said it was not his fault, but the bus was overbooked and we would have to stand the whole way, a windy 40 minutes trip, or get the next bus in two hours.
I said at my age, in my 60s , I couldn’t stand the whole way and I wasn’t going to try to catch the next bus( maybe full too🙄).
With that I asked if someone else could stand up? Fortunately a wonderful young man offered whom I thanked the profusely.
The other new passenger, the girl who was waiting to board with me, decided to stand up for the trip.
The driver apologised to the two people standing and to me several times and promised compensation to those two.
I could not concentrate on the commentary because of the whole extraordinary mess.
It left a bad taste in my mouth.
What a disorganised bunch Red Decker company is! Not good enough!

Hello BonnyBeliever, Thank you for the time you have taken to write your review. It is with disappointment that I read your feedback. I apologise if our tour did not meet your expectations on this occasion. So that I can investigate your feedback further can you please contact our tour booking office at your earliest convenience. This would be much appreciated. Our numbers are managed through our booking system. Your feedback isnt something that has been raised by anyone previously so we would certainly like to hear from you. Disappointing you didnt raise your concerns with one of our staff on the day/ at the time so that we could have addressed your concerns immediately. We are unable to physically book more passengers than the seating capacity on the bus coming from the city going to the mountain so am surprised to read your feedback. We are a hop on hop off service & are licensed however for standing passengers. We certainly wouldn't expect nor ask anyone to stand for the full duration of the tour and especially anyone with physical limitations. Some people do prefer to stand on our bus service (even when there are seats available) as they are only traveling a short distance between stops and they find it easier with the gear they have brought with them for their walk or bike ride. We don't factor the standing spots into our numbers from the city to the mountain but the standing capacity may be utilized on the return journey intermittently and to drop off/pick up walkers on the bus stops. There would have been people traveling to the mountain on your tour from the city (that you wouldnt have been aware of) who were travelling the full 2 hour return trip (as you were doing), only part way (to the Springs), one way only (hopping off at the summit & walking back to the city), people hopping on and off on all the stops on the mountain, & bikeriders hopping off to join the mountain bike tracks. Although it may appear disorganised it is in fact a well oiled machine! We operate our service with detailed manifests. Our drivers are also in continual 2 way contact updating each other on what walkers are going to be where at what time. If people aren't in their expected spots our tour booking staff give them a quick phone call to check their location and wellbeing. Our drivers continually monitor the weather, monitor the road conditions and are also amazing at recommending what walks in what weather on the day, and the best food to eat at the Springs & at Fern Tree! I can see though looking from the outside in, how this may look vastly different to how a fully escorted, fully guided tour would look which you may/ may not have been on in the past. We understand that a hop on hop off type bus service isn't for everyone. We do offer a full tour refund if people are not 100% happy with their tour experience. Please ring our tour office to organise this for you. We hope that you enjoyed the rest of your stay in Tasmania and look forward to speaking to you soon. We do care very much about our customer tour experiences. Many thanks. Fiona G Tour Manager

I must acknowledge that the company has no control over the weather, but as the driver said over the two way, zero visability at all three lookouts. Nothing to see but fog. I am not sure that the suggestion to phone the office and they might be able to get us on another trip, one or two at a time, sometime in the next two or three days, was particularly helpful.
One hour loops so a bus only goes past a stop every hour. Standing waiting for a bus not great.

Hello Marie, Thank you the time you have taken to write your review. You are correct we have no control over the weather. Thank you for acknowledging this in your review. I can understand your disappointment in regards to the fog on your mountain tour the day you travelled. Tasmania is known for the saying that the weather can be " 4 seasons in one day" and also the locals say "if you don't like the weather come back in 5 minutes!" (joking of course). We do recommend checking the Australian Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) website prior to booking. There is a handy 7 day forecast on the BOM website. It is sometimes wrong but mostly moderately accurate in predicting rain, cloud cover and wind. It is one of the few alpine areas in Tasmania that people can drive to. Alpine regions are known for variable weather. This is what makes them very special. We all seek different experiences from tours and you may be surprised that we do often have people liking the mist as it makes for great photo's of the trees and alpine vegetation. Although we do not offer refunds due to weather, we are about the only tour company in the world that offers complimentary return travel if there are seats available on another tour departure time and/or day of your choosing. I apologise if you didn't find this useful in your case. Our city loop bus is 90 minutes in duration if you stay on and dont get off (fog free just to clarify as the tour operates at or very close to sea level). If you do hop off yes it is 1 hour between buses. This is better than comparable to cities with similar visitation. We do take your feedback on board. Unlike Melbourne and Sydney we are small city, in fact the smallest capital city in Australia! We offer full tour refunds if our tours don't meet expectations. Please contact our tour office if you would like us to arrange this for you. We hope to see you again soon and I am sure your tour experience will be a more positive one. Many thanks. Kind regards, Fiona G Tour Manager

Good morning,

What a gem of an employee you have in Christian !

Yesterday morning we took your tour to Mt Wellington under the guidance of Christian. I don’t think I have ever encountered a more enthusiastic, engaging and professional tour driver/guide.

He provided a most informative and humorous commentary in the bus, repeated his on the ground commentary for stragglers and ensured every passenger heard his every word.

A wonderful safe, entertaining and inciteful tour.

Congratulations Christian and Red Decker.

Regards,

Graeme Smith.

The only bus trip that can get you to the very top of Mt Wellington when there is snow .... and there was snow 😍
The Hop-on Hop-off bus is a great way to see around Hobart and see where to stop and visit. A must is the 48 hr trip
