Worth it

The commentary of the bus driver was very informative, he was also very nice.We enjoyed the drive up the mountain. We believe that the time that was spent in between the stops and up in the mountain and drive back to Hobart is reasonable. I highly recommend to anyone to do this tour in winter especially if you don’t want to take your car up in the mountain. We are locals but prefer to join the tour as we’re not sure of the driving conditions. Worth it. Thanks,

We were warned to hold onto our hats and glasses, I thought he was joking at first, but thankfully I took my glasses off prior to getting off - otherwise I think the wind would have wiped them clean off my face.

Hello Jason_F glad you got through your tour with your glasses and hat accounted for! Many a hat has ended up talking flight at the summit. We hope you enjoyed your visit to Tasmania and we hope to see you in Hobart again soon. Many thanks for your fantastic review.

The driver/guide - John was exceptional. We were immersed by his knowledge on Hobart/Tasmania's history throughout the tour along with his wit & anecdotes. The summit was cold & windy. However, we still enjoyed the panoramic view inside the lookout enclosure. I thoroughly enjoyed it & definitely recommend this tour.
