Overall a good day, though longer than expected. The Get Your Guide sent us to the wrong pick up point but fortunately Clinton, driver/guide, had my mobile and called. The tour includes a walk along the cliff tops as well as some other stops on the way back, so expect to be back in Hobart around 6pm. Clinton was very knowledgeable and kept us entertained with Tassie stories! The Port Arthur site is beautifully kept...our disappointment was that the short guided tour was not longer and did not include a tour of the buildings. (You are left to wander.) The Barracks in Sydney has a wonderful system whereby the audio (headset) is automatically triggered as you enter the rooms...providing a great combination of historical data and personal stories.
We got there around 15minutes before the guided tour of the site at 11:30am then straight to the isle of the Dead at 1:00pm - we missed the caves as we were starving by the time we returned from the island so there was just not enough time to do the caves tour - maybe getting there 1/2 hour earlier would have been better
What a fabulous day with our guide Jeremy ! He was informative and a great driver Highly recommended this day trip and the sausage rolls at our first stop were delish ! Thanks Jeremy for his patience as we were always the last four on the bus too much to soak up at every destination Def 5 stars ✨
fantastic day. The tour guide gave us an insight into what life was like at the time. We learnt a lot of the historical significance of Port Arthur and its impact on Australian society in its day.
Knowledgeable staff and a spotlessly clean site helped add to our visit to our poignant but beautiful time spent at Port Arthur. All this was topped with a perfect weather day: sunny and no wind.
