Are there any extra costs?

Depending on the tour type or request, there may be other factors such as hotel costs for multi-day tours, extra hours, ferry costs, etc. If your personalised tour has any of these extra costs, we will include it in your quote or itinerary when you enquire or book with us.

Can we charter a special trip?

Yes, you can! We receive requests all the time for special out-of-the-box tours or trips. The most common being Mt Wellington at sunrise and sunset, and chasing the Southern Lights. We know all the best places to see the lights and we can forecast and recommend the best night for you to see them during your stay. So enquire today as we can work it in with our regular tour booking and your other bookings with us.

Terms and conditions of our flexible itinerary’s?

Heart of Tasmania Tours allows you the customer, to have the ultimate flexibility in building, designing your ideal day tour and making on the fly changes to your itinerary while on tour with us. We will always endeavour to as much as humanly possible, meet the needs of you and your group and the itinerary you have requested. However we will not be held responsible, for the following reasons that may result in our day tour / multiday tour with you needing to be changed or changed completely based on circumstances beyond our control.

  • Very limiting weather conditions.
  • Unavoidable road closure’s.
  • Unsafe conditions, bush fire, ice, snow, extreme wind & rain, etc….
  • Limiting time factors where the itinerary in question has not been provided by us and therefore is impossible to complete in one day or as written.
  • Unavoidable closure of attractions and or food & drink establishments where by, there are external factors beyond our control.
  • Unadvisable / unrecommended changes to the original itinerary on the day of the tour booking, including whilst on tour. Whereby, the end result of the tour because of your own changes is then deemed an unpleasant or not an enjoyable experience by you and/or other passengers at the end of the tour.

Where in Tasmania do you operate?

We are based in Hobart, but we operate all over Tasmania.

Do you pick up in Launceston or remote locations across Tasmania?

Yes, we can arrange a pick-up at a location of your choice. If you require this, just us know and we will give you a quote.
