It was great we did pick a rainy day so we got off at the woman’s factory which was very sad but the tour guides were amazing with so much knowledge and the actress who played out different scenarios was great we would of never known about this if we didn’t get on the bus it also took us to the Cascade Brewery where we had a lovely lunch and the bus driver was so helpful and freindly

Hello Pelliott1960, Thank you for the time you have taken to write your review. We are pleased that you made the most of the hop on hop off tour option. The Cascades Female Factory is an amazing interpretive site that is certainly well worth visiting when in Hobart. "The Proud and the Punished- A tale of Tragedy and Triumph" the current dramatized play at the Cascade Female Factory is performed at regular times throughout the week but we do recommend visiting to the Female Factory website to make a prebooking prior to hopping off the bus as it is very popular for locals and tourists alike. We hope you plan another visit to Hobart soon. We appreciated your tour feedback very much. Many thanks. Fiona G Tour Manager Red Decker Company

A great way to get your bearings after arrival into Hobart. Commentary is very informative.
If you book the Mt Wellington bus tour at the same time you get it for $25 instead of $35.

Hello Kazza67_12, Thank you for your fantastic review of your recent tours. We are thrilled that your experience on our tours was a very positive one. We offer great deals if you combine tours on both our city loop and our mountain service. If you have booked or travelled on either our city loop or mountain and then decide you would like to do the other tour as well we are happy to also upgrade your ticket at any time. Just ask one of our staff and they will happily organise a ticket upgrade for you. We agree the city loop is a great way to get your bearings around the city itself and the mountain is a great way to get your bearings of Hobart and the surrounding areas. From the summit of kunanyi/ Mt Wellington is it said that on a clear day you can see 1/3 of Tasmania! We hope you visit Hobart again soon. Many thanks again for your great review. Kind regards. Fiona G. Tour Manager

A great bus tour
We kept getting off to see things and the bus was always on time to pick us up again.
We were very lucky as it was not crowed.
Both drivers we had were really lovely. We were a little over our time to get back on but he didn’t mind.( had two because we brought tickets half way through the day)
Definitely do again if visiting Hobart.

Weather meant we had to stay in Hobart
Mar 2020
We were looking for something to do since the weather did not allow our original plans. We decided upon this city type tour. It was damp and some rain so we knew we would want to be inside - not on top. There were more than a couple heated discussions as some left the bus after being up top with the rain. Some had raincoats on - some did not.
We were lucky enough to get inside. The only stop we made where we did not have to pay were the Gardens. The brewery and prison had entrance fees - more than we thought it should be so we did not go.
We liked that you could get on and off as many times as you wanted within the 24 hour period. If the wether had been a little more agreeable we would have stayed longer at the Gardens.
I can see people waning to use this bus since parking is difficult and expensive in Hobart. $30 NZ - for 24 hours.
I will say the time schedule really was on time for us - each stop.

Dear Kim B, thank you for taking the time to leave a review of your trip with Red Decker. I’m pleased to hear you enjoyed the tour and found it to be a valuable and timely way to see the city and explore some of Hobart’s attractions, including the beautiful Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens. To clarify for others, there is no entry fee for the Cascade Brewhouse. However, the historic Cascade Brewery is only accessible on a paid guided tour. Admission and/or tour fees for the Cascades Female Factory and Hobart Convict Penitentiary help to fund the ongoing conservation of these significant sites. It is unfortunate that the weather was not ideal on the day you travelled. Would you believe Hobart is the second driest capital city, so the rain rarely gets in the way of a day of sightseeing! We do have ponchos available on the bus and in heavy rainfall conditions we are able to operate our closed-top double decker buses instead. Thank you for all of your recommendations and we hope you enjoyed your holiday in Tasmania. Louise V, Red Decker Company.

Great way to get an overview of Hobart
Feb 2020
We only had a limited time t see round Hobart, so we opted fro what was the final bus tour of the day. Good decision it was too. A friendly, warm welcome from the driver followed by a relaxed, and well informed tour round the key sites of Hobart. Made us realise we need to to spend longer in Hobart on our next visit because there is so much to see. Highly recommend this tour,

Very informative great value for money, trip is 90 minutes and explores the city and immediate surrounds. Opportunities to hop off and explore. Bus runs regularly a great way to see the sights of Hobart and inexpensive. Drivers very courteous and the history of Hobart is relayed via recorded audio dialogue telling the history of the buildings we passed. Was recommended by the ladies at the visitors centre well worth 90 minutes. If you are on your first trip to Hobart highly recommend

Excellent way to see the sites of Hobart. Go early and you can hop on and off. We were on the last bus so had to stay on. Saw all the main sites...informative tour. Get on in the harbour and sit back and enjoy. Plenty of good photo opportunities.
