“Hobart's Big Ticket Tour with Tassie Mark”
Reviewed July 8, 2014

Fantastic. Absolutely brilliant. I had only two days in Tasmania, and this tour covered enough of the island to make me want to return. Pickup was great and the shuttle was comfortable.
Tassie Mark is one of the best tour guides I have encountered across six continents. Funny, personable, witty, flexible, and most important, passionate about Tasmania. Tassie Mark was knowledgeable about a variety of subjects and was able to answer everyone's questions. He changed the itinerary a bit to accommodate the weather. Tassie Mark was cheerful throughout the whole experience and kept everyone interested.
Bonorong Wildlife Park is not to be missed whilst in Tasmania. It was awesome feeding the kangaroos and seeing all kinds of Tasmanian animals up close. The employees and volunteers are passionate about conservation, and it is quite apparent.
It was interesting to see how chocolate is made at the Cadbury Chocolate Factory. Also nice to pick up some souvenirs.
The top of Mount Wellington is pretty neat! There were a few individuals on the tour who had never seen snow before, so it was great to see their surprise. There wasn't much snow but it was foggy. Tassie Mark made sure stopped to shoot photographs of Hobart from the mountain. Amazing to see the summit.
The DVD was a good addition to the tour. Between that and Tassie Mark, there was enough insight to this incredible island. Please do yourself a favour if you have any time in Hobart to book this tour.

“Port Arthur Mega Tour - Spectacular”
Reviewed July 7, 2014

Mark made it a great day for us. He introduced us to our other tour family members for the day and we felt like we were people, not just a number for the day. We laughed so much on the trip and had a fantastic tour filled with a lot of information. I would recommend this tour as a must see to everyone I meet.

“"Did you see any Tasmanian Devils?" - Great tour to answer "YES!!"”
Reviewed April 25, 2014

On my last full day in Tasmania, I made a last-minute call to try to see the Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary. I called the number on the "Hobart's Big Ticket Tour" pamphlet and luckily was able to arrange a pick-up after the rest of the group came down from Mt. Wellington. Unlike other tours where you have your drive-by [camera] shooting of many sites, we spent 2 hours at Bonorong. It was timed with a naturalist/ranger tour I knocked on a wombat's butt (she told us to try!), watched Tasmanian Devils eat whole carcasses, and took selfies with koalas and kangaroos. Afterwards, we took a driving tour of the area with stops with stories augmented with DVD's. Mark was great -- he does call names to keep you awake! Obviously enjoys meeting new people and sharing info about Tassie!

Reviewed April 23, 2014

Great day out! Froze at the top of Mount Wellington but then warmed up with yummy hot chocolate at the Cadbury Factory. Drove around the Derwent and heard stories of the old zoo and the bridges and finished off with a visit to Bonorong Park to see and hear the Tassie Devils. Lots of fun in a small group with the ever cheeky and knowledgable Mark.

“Scenic, entertaining & informative”
Reviewed March 10, 2014

A full days entertainment on this tour. The driver was very knowledgeable about Hobarts colourful history. You feel very involved with only a moderate sized group. Plenty to do, plenty to see!
