Our guide arranged a pick-up at our hotel and we were off for a day adventure. We were quite moved by our Port Arthur experience and the guide was a great help: crayfish rolls at Dunnaley, a chocolate factory and a lavender store/restaurant on the way to Port Arthur were added bonuses

We arrived in Hobart to find that our previously booked tour had cancelled, due to a lack of interest. The tourist center hooked us up with Sally. She was wonderful! Sally arrived to pick us up right on time and recreated the tour we had booked. She was so friendly and full of little details on the places we saw... More

We met our tour guide and owner Sally by the dock. There was a slight mix up that put us behind regarding scheduling but Sally more then made up for it. Sally took us to a chocolate factory and a lavender store/restaurant on the way to Port Arthur Penal Colony. I noticed all buildings have water storage tanks. That's when... More

I booked a half day trip with Sally, based on Tripadvisor reviews, for our party of 4. She was parked waiting for us exactly where she said she would be, and we had a wonderful 5-6 hours seeing not just Hobart, but Richmond, Bonorung (is that spelt right)'and other unexpected places. The wildlife sanctuary in particular was a joy, and... More

Sally took a group of us including my husband and our son and daughter in law around Tasmania for the day. We arrived by cruise ship and only had the day. She did a super job and we couldn't have been happier. We thought we were going to see Richmond and the Wild Life preserve(110 kangaroos!!) which we did but... More

We just spent two days with Sally and couldn't have had a better time. We communicated by e-mail in advance of our arrival and I gave here an idea of the goals of our days and what we liked and didn't like. She put together the perfect two days of tours for us. We learned quite a lot about Tasmania...its... More

We docked in Hobart and looked for a tour that would be both affordable and enjoyable. The ship tours had prohibitive costs!! We went to the Information Center near the dock and spoke with a young clerk there. We told her what we had in mind and she placed a call to Herbaceous Tours. My wife and I have been... More

Sally brought us to Mt nelson, bonorong, Richmond, sorrell, wicked cheese on a day trip. Before the trip actually started, we had many email correspondence.
