Words from happy walkers

  • Well worth the 1.5hrs walking around the waterfront learning fascinating history we otherwise would never have heard about. Carrie was thoroughly entertaining with her tales of not only the buildings but the characters of our past. Great way to start and evening and as it finishes at Salamanca Place it leaves you with many options for dinner. Highly recommended.

  • Couldn't have been better! Much more than a pub tour, it was an excellent glimpse into the lifestyle of early Hobart and the interesting characters of the times. Our guide was very knowledgeable and very patiently answered all our questions. Great fun even if you aren't a drinker - the 2 pubs we stopped in are quite happy to serve hot nonalcoholic beverages to ward off the chill!
