I really enjoyed this tour, it's a great way to see Port Arthur. The bus driver was informative on the drive down and gave advice on the 'must sees' which helped to work out where to go first. Don't miss the Separate Prison and the Commandants House which have restored and give a good example the life at Port Arthur. The walking tour of the Isle of the Dead was also a great way to hear more about the convicts and their lives.Reviewed by: Gillian F, December 2013
Thanks for a great tour, we enjoyed whole day, but we just couldn't take it all in, in one day.Reviewed by: David C, November 2013
Very interesting and informativeReviewed by: Deirdre P, February 2013
Due to the bushfires we were unable to take our much anticipated trip to Port Arthur. However the tour organisers transferred us to another day trip at no extra cost. We were very impressed with this service.Reviewed by: Joanne G, January 2013
Delightful, informative tour. A great day.Reviewed by: Kathleen G, May 2012
Weather was great, Tour was great!
Tasman Arch and Devil's Kitchen were worthwhile extras. Isle of the Dead tour and tales most interesting.
Well worth the trip! Loved the Isle of the Dead tour though a little rushed. The only negative in the day was the bus driver's inappropriate commentary on the way down, asking us to imagine the horrible stretch marks and breasts of his ancestor after having 22 children. He also gave the wrong tickets to a couple who got off the bus. When he realised he said "Oh well, they don't speak English anyway".Reviewed by: Cali, Australia, January 2012

Fantastic tour. really loved it. The Isle of the dead was disapointing, but the rest of the settlement was very impressive.Reviewed by: Cherilyn M, February 2011
Even better than when I did a similar tour 25 years ago. Because of a slight walking disability over longer walks, took the buggy and went through three of the most important buildings - something that was not included in the tour on foot. Could not fault the helpfulness afforded by the buggy driver. Well done!Reviewed by: Harry M, October 2010
