Day 1: Hobart Sightseeing Coach Tram Tour (3 hours)
Get oriented with Hobart’s historical landmarks, lively cultural districts and pretty suburbs on this city tour by historical coach tram. Visit destinations like Sullivan’s Cove, the birthplace of Hobart; Salamanca Place, with its Georgian warehouses renovated into pubs, eateries and galleries; and Battery Point, home to charming historical houses and boutiques.

Learn about the city’s convict past as you see the remains of the Female Factory, a former female prison that’s part of the Australian Convict Sites UNESCO World Heritage site, and check out the Cascade Gardens and Brewery. Other sights you may see include South Hobart at the foot of Mt Wellington. Plus, cross the Tasman Bridge over the River Derwent, and stop at the Rosny Hill lookout for views of the city, Mt Wellington, Sandy Bay and Glenarchy.

Please note: The tram does not operate on Saturdays.

Day 2: Port Arthur Tour (8 hours)
Your day trip to Port Arthur Historic Site starts with the drive from Hobart to the Tasman Peninsula, passing by sights like Eaglehawk Neck and Norfolk Bay. When you arrive, embark on a guided walking tour of this former seaside penal colony, which dates back to the 1830s and was once home to the most serious criminals of the time; more than 30 restored buildings and ruins are available to explore.

See sites like the penitentiary, a former granary and flour mill, the separate prison, the Commandant’s House and the church, and learn about the history of the settlement and the brutal living conditions for the convicts via interpretive and interactive presentations. Then set off on a 30-minute cruise on Carnarvon Bay to see where escapee prisoners were incarcerated on the Isle of the Dead.

After lunch at Port Arthur (own expense), admire the rugged coastline of Tasman National Park, and see sights like the Tasman Arch, Devils Kitchen and the blowhole before returning to Hobart in the late afternoon.

The two Nigels drivers on Hobart Sightseeing Coach Tram and Port Arthur Tour are so great!
Both Nigels have very good knowledge about Hobart and provided us with many stories. Many thanks.

Overall a pleasant trip which gave me a pretty good idea of the main characters of Hobart. Neil was professional and had a good sense of humor. Would have been better had we had the luck popping on the good old tram coach though!

Our experience in Hobart and the trip to Port Arthur were wonderful! Our tour guide/bus driver, Adam, was personable and relayed so much interesting history of the city to us in a way that you could tell how much he loved his home city of Hobart. The day trip to Port Arthur was also interesting and enjoyable as was the 90 minute bus drive to Port Arthur and the trip back. Our driver served us with lots of interesting information as well. We really would have stayed in Hobart/Tasmania longer had our schedule allowed for it. I would rate our tour 5 out of 5!

The tours were easy to book, efficient and well worth the price. The tours were great and were completed over two days, on the first day we were shown the sites of Hobart and on Day two we were taken to Port Arthur, both tours were very informative and enjoyable, both coach drivers, one on each day, were also our guides on each day, both were pleasant, very knowledgeable, friendly and very helpful where necessary. Definitely worth the price and would gladly book using viator in the future.

Excellent. Half day Hobart tram tour was a little rushed. Having said this we saw and learned much more of Hobart than expected if we had done on our own. We returned to several sites later in our own time. Port Arthur tour is a full day. We didn't rush around, visiting only half the site before sitting down for an awesome lunch in the cafe before boat and Isle of the dead tours. Looking forward to return visit to complete tour.
Both drivers were also our tour guides and where knowledgeable and informative with both history and local topics providing excellent commentary. Both captains cannot praise enough. Highly recommend both bus tours.
