Fantastic experience: Fun and informative walking tour by Ali on market day in Hobart. We love walking tours as get a more local view on history and current news in a city. We paid cash as more direct thanks to the guide.

Fantastic experience: The Hobart walking tour is a must. Arli's local insight and historical knowledge caters for all ages; kids and adults alike. Our 10 year daughter was just as engaged as the adults with his friendly interaction and fun presentation. Hobart is a wonderful place to visit and on the walking tour we learnt a lot about the city's fascinating and interesting history.

Fantastic experience: Spent a wonderful morning doing this tour with Ali. He was fun and very enthusiastic about Hobart. It's easy to see he loves his city. Ali took us to such interesting and out-of-the-way places. We were entertained with just the right mix of historical and heritage info and he gave us lots of genuine tips about eating places, best coffee etc etc. I can highly recommend this tour.

Fantastic experience: This tour was my first tour in Hobart and being a solo traveller, choosing Hobart free walking tour was the best decision. Mr. Ali, the tour guide was very engaging and fun to hear to. He covered all the fun facts and tipped the group with local information. He didn’t forget to mention some good dine ins and few tours/destinations to look forward too. I highly recommend this tour and wish all the best for Ali on all his handwork.

Fantastic experience: My parents and I joined the free walking tour while we were in Tasmania, and all we can say that it's a must-do as well! Ali, our guide, was so insightful not just to the history of Tasmania, but also to its culture today and the issues and insights that only the locals would really know and are experiencing. Finally, I recommend this for all ages since the path Ali took us on was a fairly easy walk and at a relaxed pace.

Fantastic experience: I recently took a walking tour of Hobart with HFWT, and I was thoroughly impressed with every aspect of the experience. From start to finish, the tour was well-planned, engaging, and informative. Our guide was absolutely fantastic. He was incredibly knowledgeable about the history and culture of Hobart, and he had a knack for storytelling that made the tour come alive. He was also very friendly and approachable, which made it easy for us to ask questions and get to know the city better. We visited some of the most interesting and beautiful parts of Hobart, and our guide pointed out all kinds of fascinating details and hidden gems that we never would have noticed on our own. The pace of the tour was just right; we never felt rushed, but we also never felt like we were lingering too long in one place. I would highly recommend Hobart Walking Tours to anyone who is visiting Hobart and wants to get a deeper understanding of the city's history and culture. I left feeling like I had a much better appreciation for this beautiful city. Five stars all around!

Fantastic experience: Ali did in amazing job, this tour was simply great! I did a very expensive tour 5 years ago which ran over 3.5h, but I had the feeling that Ali still managed to mention all the important bits in only half the time. Despite his announcement that he would not bore us with too much history, he provided enough history that even history-lovers such as myself were satisfied. Moreover, Ali could answer many questions regarding Hobart that went beyond the tour's contents and gave some great restaurant recommendations that I can confirm now. TL;DR look no further, if you spend at least one day in Hobart, do this tour. There is no better starting point.

Positive experience: Ali our Guide took us on an easy stroll from St Davids Park, through Battery Point and onto the Hobart Wharf all the while detailing the historic buildings and history of Hobart as well as pointing out his favourite eateries and coffee haunts. His fun and informative style kept our small group entertained and was educational as well. For anyone arriving in Hobart that has a spare two hours I thoroughly recommend taking this Two Hour Walk as it will provide you with a solid list of places to go as well as be a amazing introduction to Hobart and the warm welcoming people of Tasmania.

She was so bright and quirky, with fantastical stories about Hobart history, we both really enjoyed her commentary and feel more the wiser now. Everyone visiting (or living in) Hobart must take a Hobart Free Walking Tour!
