Reviews for Tasmania self guided cycling holiday, Australia


review 8 Mar 2017

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Overland track. Normally we like to do independent self guided walking but we were so glad that we did the guided Cradle Huts walk for a number of reasons. The accommodation is great, this really was walking the Overland in luxury with most stuff provided for you, very helpful check lists at the start etc. We were also lucky with a very nice group of people but when walking you never felt rushed or crowded in any way. A huge shout out though to the guides Joel and Vito who were superb in looking after everyone. These guys work incredibly hard, moving stuff each day, doing superb cooking every evening etc but again it was their knowledge of the path, landscape and wildlife that made such a difference. Vito on occasion would stop and take a photo himself which says it all. This was a real highlight of the holiday, no cars, no roads, no internet at true wilderness in awe inspiring scenery with superb variety each day including the weather! Amazing views wherever you looked.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

For us in visiting Australia for the first time deciding where to go with only 3 weeks available was tough. Best to concentrate on one area. Sydney and Tasmania turned out to be a perfect combination of big city buzz and then the superb open spaces of Tasmania.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes, in particular, the conservation of the Cradle Mountain National Park.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Recommend Tassie. Why go to Tasmania? Possible to get an overview of the island in 2 weeks, but longer would be better. In no particular order scenery, open spaces, wildlife, Hospitality/wine and food, climate. In one word ,variety. You never knew what was around the corner.
