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

Waking up to some amazing views in the morning from a variety of places that we stayed in. Seeing wombats and pademelons in the wild. Seeing Tasmanian Devils at Bonorong and Devils at Cradle and being given an insight into the importance of the work at these Conservation Centres. Being in close proximity to the little penguins at Bicheno Penguin Tour without disturbing them. Some great Tasmanian local food. Bruny Island Cheese Company did an exceedingly good ploughmans.

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

If travelling to Tasmania then use this tour operator to arrange the itinerary. Susie gave us an itinerary which fitted with our requirements and was helpful with directions, timings for our drives, tips for local activities, suggestions for where and when to buy groceries. Also be prepared for changes in weather.

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

Yes - we stayed in a variety of accommodation including hotels, B&B and self catering which were run by local people and not part of any chains. Visiting the Conservation centres and Bruny Island Cruise all supported conservation projects.

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

Excellent. Loved the island, the views, the wildlife, the food and hardly any traffic! All of our hosts were warm and welcoming.

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

Tasmania is a treasure trove of wildlife. The lodges selected by Responsible Travel were remote and exclusive. The proper way for watching wildlife. At all the lodges we could watch wildlife. Other then a wild Tasmanian devil we got to see all the mammals we wanted to see. Fantastic photo opportunities.

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

Hire a GPS with the car rental & buy a road map. It will help you explore the smaller unpaved roads. Drive SLOW due to wildlife on roads.

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

Yes it did. The lodges were all geared to protecting their natural wonder.

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

Responsible Travel was amazing and Susie who did our planning was prompt and professional. She geared our itinerary to our preferences very well.

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

All the places we visited were awesome and the itinerary was perfectly planned. Cradle Mountains and the stay at Lemonthyme was an unique experience. At the same time, beauty point was really beautiful and our hosts Barbara and Colin were too good. The great eastern drive was very scenic. We enjoyed the warm hospitality of Jills and Jonathan at Harpers on the beach. The Tasman Island cruise was very adventurous. So I think the entire tour was memorable.

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

Not to miss the walk at cradle mountains and the Tasman Island cruise.

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

Yes.

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

Overall, it was a happy, enjoyable and memorable tour.

review 7 Mar 2018

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

So many highlights that this is an almost impossible question to answer but if pressed we would have to say the cruise down the Arthur River with Greg whose knowledge and enthusiasm provided an unforgettable experience.

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

Try to be specific in where you wish to go and what you want to see and then place complete trust in Susie to sort everything out for you, she wonít let you down.

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

Very much so. We tried, as we always do, to support local enterprise whether that was in choice of food outlets eg purchase of local cheeses on Bruny Island or visiting small local attractions such as the mining museum at Zeehan. Our stay at Forest Walks Lodge with Sean and Rosemary provided an excellent example of how all three of these aims was achieved, as too was the journey on the West Coast Wilderness Railway which succeeds due mainly to the hard work of local people.

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

Superlatives do not exist to do it justice, fantastic, wonderful, excellent donít begin to sum it up.
