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!
A must do tour in Hobart for everyone!
What a wonderful way to spend some time in Hobart. In just 90 minutes we learned many new and interesting facts about the history of Hobart despite being Tasmanians and having spent years living in Hobart. Never knew there was a Hunter Island and a causeway which are marked with bronze plaques in Hunter Street. Other facts of interest included the Hobart "Water Gate"; that the Town Hall is a replica of a building in Rome; the location of the former Gaol and where public hangings were carried out; where Governor Collins is buried and the stories behind the preserved headstones in St David's Park and how Salamanca Place was given its' name. Best of all, guide Barry was personable, knowledgeable and kept our interest the entire time. So pleased we decided to be "tourists" for a day in Hobart.
Hobart Urban Walk...new discoveries! Our Claremont College VET Tourism class walked the streets of old and new Hobart with our terrific tour guide John. His passion for this historic Australian city showed in his knowledge and presentation. A few favourite discoveries were 'ghost signs', the rivulet running through the city, learning the history of the historic buildings and getting tour guide tips along the way....
Thanks John and Hobart Historic Tours.
Old Hobart Pub Tour. One of the best “city tours” we’ve done ... anywhere! Our Guide John was fantastic - very knowledgeable and very easy to get on with. Easy to organise and then a lovely stroll through the streets of down town Hobart visiting some great pubs!
I would recommend this tour and Hobart Historic Tours generally to anyone! Spoil yourselves - you won’t regret it!
Thank you for booking us on the Grand Hobart Walk. I would just like to say that our guide Bill was outstanding. He was knowledgeable, engaging and has a genuine passion for his role. We would definitely recommend Bill and the organisation.
