First of all, there are a few things to keep in mind when considering this tour. The policy does not allow any cancels after the booking, so make sure you have made your mind before the final click. Also, be prepared for chances of strong winds and rain, which will affect the choice of gear and sometimes of the trekking route. Both of these points are made clear on the site and we did not experience any problems, but should be kept in mind when planning for your trip.
With that said, the tour is a great option if you are up for a interesting and rewarding hike. Luckily, the weather on the day of our tour was good enough for us to visit Marion's Lookout, which allows a great view of Cradle Mountain and Dove Lake. From there we took a flatter route back, passing small ponds, rivers, and forests on the way. This route choice let us appreciate the diverse and changing scenery in the area without too much exhaustion, even though we were inexperienced as hikers. A lucky encounter with wombats and wallabies at a place the guide took us after the hike was the perfect cherry on top, ending the day of Tasmanian nature experience.

A freezing morning turned into a stunning day in the Cradle Mountain National Park. Our driver/guide Graeme was amazing - full of knowledge and expertise not only on the Mountain but also pointing out sites and places of interest along the way. Small group of six, able to spend ample time in the Park and choose walks to our ability. Highly recommend Tours Tasmaina for hiking in this special place

This was a fantastic tour. I spent the day with Simon who had many interesting facts about all of the areas we visited and was very flexible with the day. Beautiful views and all of the stops were lovely! We also saw quite a few wombats, kangaroos, and wallabies! I would recommend bringing proper rain gear as it apparently rains in the Cradle Mountain area 300 days a year and it was certainly wet and rainy when we went. Proper hiking shoes are recommended as well! Will definitely recommend this tour :)

I did this tour as part of the 'Big Three' three-day tour from Hobart to Launceston. The day started early picking everyone up from their hotels and heading to the first stop, a place offering coffee and all sort of breakfast/lunch options for eat-in or takeaway. After purchasing our breakfast/lunch for the day, we headed towards Cradle Mountain. The first walk was a short but peaceful walk inside the national park. We then hopped back into the van to drive deeper into the national park and closer to Cradle Mountain. We parked by Dove Lake where the guide explained the various options for trails before we all parted ways. A girl I had met on the bus and myself opted for the hike up to Marion's Lookout together. It was a difficult upward climb, especially since we were moving at a fairly quick pace. It took us approximately an hour to reach the top, but once we got up there the views were spectacular. Because we had made such good time, we were able to relax and have lunch without being rushed. Once finished, we headed down towards Dove Lake. The climb down was steeper than expected, but they have a chain rope most of the way you can hold onto. I was grateful for this when my foot slipped a couple of times on the loose stone. We were good on time so we were also able to do the walk around Dove Lake (counter-clockwise from the parking lot). There were a couple of spots with an uphill climb, but this was much easier than the hike up to Marion's lookout. Once we all met back at the van, we drove to another area of the park for a brief chance to roam around and try to spot wombats. Last stop on the tour was to the Ashgrove Cheese Factory to sample cheeses and purchase goodies or ice cream. Overall, it was a long and tiring day, but it was so exhilarating and worth the effort. The guide was also extremely informed and experienced, making the day more enjoyable and run smoothly.

Fantastic tour. Graeme was an excellent guide, full of knowledge and provided clear instructions for our hike up the mountain. Certainly recommend this tour, in fact it would be among the top couple of day tours we have ever taken, if not the best.
We took the option for the hike up to Marion’s lookout with our 10 year old. Whilst challenging in parts it was done fairly comfortably. Our son led the party down to the bottom. Going down using the link path looked challenging and steep but with the chains provided for much of the trip down it was relatively straightforward. Anyone who is reasonably fit can do the hike up to Marion’s.

The hike is clearly identifiable, has some boardwalks, good steps and markers to tell you where to go. There is a steep bit towards the top which has chains you use to pull you up. But really not too difficult (imo).

Again highly recommend this day trip. You will certainly get a good nights sleep after the day.

Our guide was extremely knowledgeable of the indigenous and modern history of the region. He kept us on a tight schedule which was great so we could maximize the day. He provided additional clothing if we needed it and recommend the trails best suited for our individual needs.

The best part of this tour is the fact that you have the option of which trails at Cradle Mountain to hike. You don't walk in a group so no need to wait for slow walkers. It's a bit hectic but you can do both the Marions lookout hike and the walk around the lake.

Our affable, considerate, knowledgble, passionate, respectful, generous Guide was brilliant! He had every base covered with location maps, ability to have guests on side to adhere to meeting times, variety which he thoroughly enjoyed too, quality destinations, good advice on how to tackle each destination, keenness for us all to have good photographic memories, love of the nature, history, food, wine and Launceston and near destinations. It was our absolute pleasure to be on board with Damian, on both days. The first day we travelled to Cradle Mountain, the second to Wine Glass Bay. Both days, we had the same consistency and quality offered. We were so pleased to have booked with Tours Tasmania and understand from our experience why the ratings are so high! We are extremely grateful.

I did the Cradle Mountain tour, Launceston to Hobart via Freycinet and Lake St Clair tours. Very well run tours, excellent and informative guides. Very good communication from their office when 1 tour had to be changed twice. Excellent travel option especially for solo travellers and a great way to see Tasmania.
