Informative and interesting guide Matt. Took time to explain all about the small town we stopped at on the way and asked if we wanted to stop at The Chocolate factory on the way home as well as taking us to Tasman's Arch and Pirate bay. Port Arthur was everything that we expected and we had plenty of time to explore the site and go on the included short cruise around the area. Well worth the cost..

Very interesting day. Learned a great deal about the prison. Driver Jac - short for Jacqueline was caring and very informative. Made several stops to and from Port Arthur which added to the experience. One negative - the van we drove in is past it's prime and should be replaced.
