Just arrived home after a fabulous road trip around Tasmania. The accommodation that was organised it was excellent, top quality. The towns selected showed a good snippet of life in Tasmania. We went on the Freycinet kayaking adventure which was optional, and that was top-quality as well. This trip gave us a taste of Tassie, and because of the distances we had to drive, we could not do some of the recommendations. Perhaps next time! We were unaware of the windy and mountainous nature of some of the roads, and I think that should be pointed out to future customers. However it was a great adventure., and we saw and did so much. The meals provided at the grand chancellor in Hobart were wonderful as well. Thank you for a great holiday adventure.
