Very educational. I didn't realise how old Hobart is; a number of buildings built between the 1830s and 1850s. Very interesting to find out about various parts of the city. I also didn't realise that only 200,000 people live in Hobart and 500,000 in Tasmania.

This is a quick and easy way to capture many parts of inner Hobart. A recorded voice gives a quick description of key places on the route. You can hop off and on all over the place - as long as you aren't a wheelchair...More

I think that it is okay to wait till you get there as you can then decide, depending on the weather, which day you wish to travel. There will be no problem getting a ticket either at the Travel Centre or via Red Decker.

If the tour is offered by the cruise company then it is geared for you to be back at the ship for the scheduled sailing time. The choice is yours. Do the tour or get the Red Decker Bus privately.
