Visiting in winter really brought home how much the prisoners would have suffered. It was hauntingly beautiful and I will never forget my day spent at Port Arthur. Our driver, Colin kept us well informed on the ride there and back and the bus was very comfortable. Can't recommend enough.

Port Arthur is definitely worth a visit. Our guide Mark was really knowledgeable and entertaining. A little longer in Richmond at the start of the day for some photos and a coffee would have been better still.

Memorable and thought provoking trip with beautiful landscapes

The tour guide (Mark) was very knowledgeable and found out the answers to any other questions we had. He was also very funny in his commentary with lots of little stories and jokes. We had such a wonderful day out. Port Arthur is such a somber and tragic place and he honoured the history with a respectful tone throughout the commentary. We loved the stops along the coastline, too.

Phil was an amazing tour guide/bus driver with vast knowledge about the history Tasmania. He was sharing important facts about the places we are driving past and it was indeed worth the drive. Port Arthur tour must be in your bucket list when going to Hobart and GrayLine Tours is one of the best to provide the experience

Disappointed

Peter was our tour guide. Confined us in one place and talked but didn’t really tour us. We had to go places on our own but didn’t know the significance of the place. Our driver Greg was also rude. We had a 10 minute toilet stop and he questioned a man with a boy why he’s only going down now after stopping for already 5 minutes. Probably the boy only felt the urge at that time.
