    This trip was an amazing experience with so much variety and flexibility in each day. Morgan was an extremely knowledgeable guide and was able to cater well for those with limited access as well as those a little more fit! Would definitely recommend this tour if you want to see some incredible sights and as well as sampling delicious food and wine along the way.

    This was a well planned, well paced tour. We experienced a good range of activities and places, from wineries, to nature walks, to meeting some local wildlife. Morgan was knowledgeable and well prepared. He accommidated the needs of the whole group, recommending variations to the itinerary based on our interests and needs. I would highly recommend this tour operator.

    Morgan is a down-to-earth, friendly and knowledgeable guide. We couldn't have asked for a better guide! Great highlight of Hobart and surrounds, we will be back to Tassie for more adventures!

    I must confess that we had some reservations about joining an organised tour group, never having done so previously. However, our experience with Morgan was so good that we are open to doing another! Morgan's gift is sharing his extensive knowledge of and enthusiasm for the places he visits. There were so many venues that we would not have considered visiting had we been on this tour. Sharing the trip with others actually enhanced our enjoyment. What really impressed me (above and beyond the excellent tour experience) was meeting another Fun Tassie Tour in Launceston, conducted by Morgan's dad, Rob. I had left my scarf on the tour bus- and Rob had it, neatly packaged, on the off chance that we might meet up with him. Wonderful experience, absolutely great value for money. Would recommend to anyone!

    Two of us travelled to Tassie looking forward to seeing the sights and experience some of the food and wine delights as well. We were NOT disappointed with Morgan our tour guide and bus driver. His passion for Tasmania and taking care of his guests shone through the whole time we were on tour; making our week one to remember! I have already recommended Fun Tassie Tours to a friend and would happily travel with them anytime.

    As we are normally 'non-tour' travellers, this tour absolutely exceeded our expectations in so many ways. The sights that we were taken to, the pace at which we travelled, our accommodation, the extra-special experiences - it was just perfect. Having Morgan as our host was probably the cherry on the top - his gentle coaxing kept us moving along and on track amongst all the fun and laughter. Thank you for a very memorable experience Tassie Fun Tours. We will be recommending you to all who care to listen.

    First time trying a small group tour. The tour had 9 on board. Morgan looked after us kept us entertained with so much information and history of everwhere we went. The group got on well and we all had a blast. Morgan took us to many of his favourite local places and we saw so much in our 6 days. So many places and information that you otherwise miss if you self drive. Would love to do another tour with Morgan. Totally recommend everyone try one of these tours.

    This was a brilliant way to see Tasmania for our first time to the island made even more enjoyable with Morgan as our guide. The whole trip was highlight after highlight especially with Morgan's knowledge of the island along with excellent accommodation, meals and transport. We highly recommend this trip to fellow travellers

    Morgan knew so much about the places we visited. He made the whole experience so personal and informative. He showed us some the most amazing places. We had the best experience and would highly recommend the tour. Every day was filled with experiences we will never forget.

    I’ve just returned from the 6 day tour which I thoroughly enjoyed. Morgan was an excellent guide. He was very knowledgeable and obviously loves Tasmania. He could not do enough for our group and made the trip a truly memorable one. Highlights for me included The Wall and the degustation luncheon. I highly recommend this tour.
