I didn't know where to start my trip in Tasmania so I decided to take a tour instead of driving, and this one seemed cheaper than most tours, but I deeply regret it! I did the 3 day tour but It felt like I wasted 3 days of my trip in Tassie.
The driver was late, we were supposed to be picked up at 9:10 am which is already late, and we finally go out of the city nearly at 10:30 am. We spent most of the time in the bus and just stopped quickly at very few locations, some of them not very interesting like and hydroelectric, while the rest of the time we all were staring at the window.
We spent very little time in nice places, which were very few most of our journey was on the highway.
Andrew, the driver, never gave extra information unless specifically asked, and he was actually injured, he could hardly walk by the end of the first day which meant he let us walk by ourselves on the second day...the company did not have anybody to back up Andrew, thank god he could drive!
They probably own the place we stayed at, not only lacked maintenance but also we had to share 2 showers between 20 people and one small kitchen, you can imagine the queues in the morning and in the evening...We could have stayed in Strahan the second day, there is a youth hostel there, but because we had to go back to Tullah for the second night we only had 45 minutes in the town Strahan before spending almost 2 hours on our way back!
In Cradle mountain we did not even went to the Tasmanian devil sanctuary which is 2 km away, rather they take you to the zoo, which is of course, extra cost.
Overall it was disorganized, unprofessional and an absolute rip-off, I would not recommend this tour to anyone. If you really want to see Tasmania, rent a car a go on your own.
I did not care for the driver's attitude either, he seemed not to care about anything, It seemed like he did not want to be there, and on top of that, he also expected us to clean up the place! after paying over 120 dollars per day they can't hire a cleaner?
The last night he went to the pub and was hung over the next day...just saying...not professional at all. Just because you're young doesn't mean you don't deserve a good quality service. I'm going to file a formal complaint to warn everyone I can about this fraud.
