Value for money and easy-to-book experience in Hobart!

This experience is a must when in Hobart. The booking experience was easy even if last minute. The provider was able to accommodate us at an early time slot upon arriving at the pickup location at 9am. It was lovely to be at Mt Wellington again - it was windy but sunny and bright when we were there. The tour guide/driver was also very approachable and entertaining. Experience Oz offered the best rate for us as a couple.

Great tour, poor communication between third party agent and the tour company

The tour itself was great. Though my details were not communicated from Experience Oz to the tour company, and I ended up on a later bus as the earlier one was sold out, which was not stated on the website. I received no confirmation or receipt that the payment had gone through and had to go directly to the tour bus company to sort everything out and book a time slot.
