Dave our tour driver and leader was exceptional especially his knowledge of Tasmania particularly Bruny Island. Group of 12 people was just enough size.Highly recommend bus tour because you learn more with local people than driving in your own car.

Grant was fantastic. His knowledge of the island was invaluable. As we had a little time, he let us quickly stop to buy cheese from the cheese, we got to taste at mornings tea. I was quick. The island is beautiful and well worth exploring.
