Overview

Great Expeditions deliver tours of Tasmania that give you what you want. Most tours are private and have just you and your friends - its like having your own chauffeur service! The prices are fantastic for what you get. The guides can even dive in the ocean and grab fresh seafood for you! Tours are in small, comfortable vehicles and are very flexible - guests often change their tours and we happily encourage them to make the most of our services and our top local knowledge. Tours operate in all weather conditions because we have backup plans that take you to the best places.

Hi drBabbs, We only took a day tour and they did a great job. If you take the 5day tour check with Great Expeditions to answer the questions. They will be very helpful.
