Our driver, Tim, was amazing! He was knowledgeable about many things in Tasmania including the snakes and spiders. He gave us info about port Arthur that wasn't mentioned at the prison site. The site accommodated my limited ability to walk by taking me around in a cart. The driver was fantastic. All around wonderful experience.
