Coastal Hikes and Great Lodges in a Magnificent Land Down Under

Client Comments

Our trip to Tasmania was a wonderful experience that will be remembered for a long time. James and Lucy, our guides, were superb, knowledgeable, personable, and a lot of fun to be with. They both went the extra mile to make sure that everyone was having an enjoyable experience. The scenery, hiking trails, animals, birds, and the super friendly ‘Aussies’ were simply terrific! Wish we were still there!

This trip was wonderful. A well-designed itinerary, great accommodations, and food that was over the top! I can't believe the diversity of things we saw and did , from visiting markets and museums, to an exhilerating boat ride, to petting a wombat and seeing Tasmanian devils up close (boy, do they sound terrible!).
— Randy L., Kensington, CA
The food and lodgings were superb; the places we went were beautiful, engaging, sometimes astounding and exhilarating.

Really awesome itinerary design with nice mix of locations, lodging, and activities. Our Trip Leader outdid himself—his local knowledge and connections made for many unique experiences.

Everything went very smoothly - couldn't ask for anything better.
— Carol M., Palos Verdes Estates, CA
We loved all of the different scenery in Tasmania, from the seashore to the mountain lakes to the temperate rainforest. Every day was an adventure!
— Lyn S., Las Vegas, NV
We loved the trip! The best part of traveling with your company is not having to worry about details. The hotel and restaurant selections were always very good and at times exceeded our expectations. The traveling time we spent in the van was very limited considering that we saw almost every corner of Tasmania. Not only were we able to hike in beautiful remote parks but we met people who demonstrated by their hard work and artistic attributes a love for their land.

The best way to see this beautiful, exciting part of Australia!

It would have taken me many individual trips to find all the visual and experiential treasures I enjoyed in nine short days. Hats off to James Fuss—he’s one of your best.
