Best combined with a Hobart free walking tour, this is the way to see more of Hobart in a short time. Spectacular views, plenty of stops and regular schedules even through the small places of Battery Point. Recommended for short visits to get your bearings in town

I thought I learnt a lot about Hobart and the different areas of Hobart taking this trip, and we took it almost as soon as we arrived Hobart so we learnt about which Places we wanted to see more of after taking this bus tour.
