We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 hour walking tour. Our guide, Lisa, was so passionate about the history of Hobart, we felt immersed in the whole history. The stories about the history were absolutely fascinating and we learnt so much.

Our guide, Robin, was simply terrific...she had deep knowledge or Hobart's history, characters and architecture but knew how much to share so as not to overwhelm us unless we asked. She was fun, clear and responsive. It couldn't have been better!
