An amazing comprehensive and informative tour of the island. Some of the highlights include a tour of the Lighthouse, coffee and oven baked bread at a rustic cafe, whisky and mead at the whisky tasting venue and of course a stop at the Chocolate shop. Most important, the information about the Island, its bays and positioning. Highly recommend George from Tours Around Tasmania
