Alessandro is a pleasant and convivial host. The tour included a necessary stop at a great bakery in Richmond for coffee and breakfast, saw the bridge, and heard stories along the way. The hike culminated in spectacular views of Wineglass Bay and then a surprise stop at a winery for lunch. It was an enjoyable and educational day out.

Absolutely the best trip, with the best guide! Nothing is too much trouble for Alessandro as he goes out of his way to ensure you are having the best experience from start to finish. This was my second time doing this tour and this time I brought along my daughter she had the best time!

This was our best day travelling in Tassie with Alex. Alex is very friendly and knowledgeable, took us to lots of truly beautiful lookouts and beaches. We also had the best meal at Devils Corner while staying 4 days in Tassie. Such a relaxing and fun day. Highly recommend to everyone!
