We chose this tour from a leaflet at the Hobart Information Centre, as it covered many points of interest, and it looked as though it would be good value. Well, we certainly weren't disappointed. Our Tour driver and guide, Craig, was excellent, and very informative, explaining just so many points of interest and history along the way. The fact that he spent part of his life living on Bruny, and had a great passion for the island and it's people, gave the tour a very personal touch. We enjoyed the culinary delights along the way, as well as a very nice lunch at the local pub. On our way back to Hobart we visited a chocolatier (John Zitto) at Ketteridge. John was just so informative about his chocolates and how he produced them, even giving us a demo and some delightful tastings. This tour was a great choice, great value, and great company. We will always remember our experience, and would recommend it to anyone.

If you are thinking of doing a day trip from Hobart then the Bruny Island Safari tour is the perfect choice. Travelling in a small group bus you get to see the beautiful scenery of the island as well as taste some of the wonderful food such as berries, oysters, cheese.....the highlight was the chocolate shop in Ketteridge. Our guide Murray was wonderful and told us some local stories to keep us interested.

We would recommend doing this tour because the places we saw (one of which was Captain Cook's landing spot) and tastings we experienced were superb. Our Guide Murray, was friendly and gave us a terrific experience with his tales of the Island. The Coup for this Tour company is the Chocolatier we visited. Not to be missed. John Zitto is a master of his profession. The price was great for what we received. A full day of fun was had on our bus.

This is one of the best one-day tours I have been on. I highly recommend it to anyone wanting to see Bruny Island & even some who don't know if they do (I was one of those). As a local who not only grew up in the area, but also LIVED the area Craig is one of the best guides I have had the pleasure of travelling with. He has a passion for the island that cannot be learned - it is instinctive. And he was able to answer any question asked of him.
The tour provides many interesting stops all to do with local produce - and the highlight is the chocolatier. Whether you love chocolate or not, you will love the passion, knowledge & expertise of this man.
This was certainly the highlight of my trip to Tasmania & I wish Craig all the best with his relatively new business. I will certainly be recommending it to anyone travelling to Hobart.

This is a first class tour of Bruny Island. We saw things we didn't even know existed and had great fun with Gino the tour guide. All the businesses we visited we're friendly and not at all pushy.
We'd have stayed longer but the day is certainly jam packed and there isn't a dull moment.
Thanks team.
