About Us

I have had extensive travel in my life away from my homeland of Tasmania, Australia, being a proud sixth generation Tasmanian. My most recent trip really set my mind thinking about a way to promote the beauty of Tasmania for others to explore; with all it’s fine produce and uniqueness.

How to best offer a Tassie experience to others brought me to  ( Tasmanian Private Tours )

I have 30 years experience in the food industry, our tours have a definite Tasmanian produce theme, quality produce being a passion; clean kitchens and clean fresh Tasmanian foods at their finest! 

Morning and afternoon tea and delicious luncheon menus to choose from (all eateries are renown for having reputations of producing delicious food) and are all inclusive in every tour. We offer choices from hand made salad rolls and sandwiches,  local Taverns, Cafes and high-quality Restaurants.

Please have a look at our website, we have 25 plus tours that will show you Hobart’s Historic Suburbs and eateries plus ‘where you want to go’ experiences at its finest and you may find the tour that looks just right for you or you may have your own wish list. We would love to hear about them, anything you want to achieve in your tour is possible.

We are looking forward to seeing you in Tasmania!
