A really interesting tour, lots to look at, lots of rich amazing history, coupled with a drink! Our guide was easy going, and quite an interesting fellow himself. We have already recommended this tour to friends & family. We only had two nights in Hobart, this was 1.5hrs very well spent, do yourself a favour.

Wet and Windy Walk through Hobart History

What a great way to start a holiday in Hobart, grounding yourself in the history around you. Informative and fun, the cold crazy weather only made it more memorable and helped you get a feel of what it would have been like in the early 1800s, living in tents and all the other hardships faced during settlement.. Maggie was lovely, full of energy and extremely knowledgable about Hobarts architecture and its progression into the city it is today.

Disappointing, guide obviously knew a lot about the area. Was expecting to actually go into the pubs and hear the history over a beer but instead mostly stood outside in the noisy busy street, hogging the paths and people having to navigate around us.
