This 7-night tour is crafted by Authentic Vacations to bring you Tasmania’s wild side. Spend the first two nights in rowdy Hobart. Visit MONA—it fires the cultural scene. Stroll to Salamanca Place, the marketplace with flair. We’ve arranged a Bruny Island Wilderness Tour for your second day. Voyage the rugged coastline, enter sea caves, and watch for whales. 

The third day you’ll pick up your rental car. Head to Coles Bay—Freycinet National Park. Your lodging overlooks the vivid waters of Great Oyster Bay. Bliss! We’ve set up an evening encounter with Fairy Penguins and a mind-boggling cruise of Wineglass Bay for you. Thrill to the panorama of Lookout or Tourville’s Lighthouse.

Cradle Mountain is your next destination. You’ll spend two resort nights in the heart of Tasmania. Enjoy local food and dine with the devil! (Tasmanian devils, that is.) On your way, there’s Launceston with its cataract gorge and the Mole Creek Caves with reflecting pools. We’ve arranged the Dove Lake Circle Walk with a knowledgeable guide. 

Circle homeward to Hobart for your last night. Visit Bonorong Sanctuary or Mount Wellington. Drop off your car, enjoy your evening. On day eight, you’re on your way to the airport. But take a moment. Let go of the ordinary and absorb the serenity of wild Tasmania.

"Wonderful Paris & London Trip"

Betsy W.

Modern Travel Pros

I wanted to pass along some feedback from my clients who just came back from their Paris and London trip. I do think they had a wonderful time!

"I wanted to say thank you for all of your hard work and help in making this trip amazing for us. It was truly incredible and exceeded our expectations. Gary was spectacular and I’d recommend him a thousand times over. We were very happy with all of your hotel selections. Locations were great for everything. Let your Disney lover clients know they truly don’t need more than a day at Disneyland Paris. I can’t stress enough how perfect the location was for our hotel in London. Public transportation is soooooo easy to navigate from there and you are truly in the center of everything. Our hotel in Paris was great too. The entire city is just absolutely stunning. Paris is a bit more spread out than London so it’s tougher to be in the middle of everything, but that location was great. Super close to the subway and great food options within walking distance. I wouldn’t have changed anything about any of our hotels."

"Great trip to Paris, Italy and Switzerland"

Betsy W.

Modern Travel Pros

My clients had a great trip! Here is their feedback: "Paris was Hannah’s favorite and I thought Switzerland would be mine, but it ended up being Venice. Switzerland was a close second! Overall, it was an amazing trip with wonderful memories to share. Thank you for all your help!"

"We got to see all of Ireland!"

Craig & Mary

It was a great Small Guided Vacation and we got to see all of Ireland. North to South and all the little points and villages. The Wild Atlantic, West coast, Cliffs of Moher, Giants causeway....Galway and Dingle Peninsula were my favorite and the Blarney castle. I never knew all that stuff was still going on in Belfast with the walls and the separation. The black cab tour was excellent. Cork, and Kilkenny were all great. I bought the Aran sweater and the wife got hers plus a Claddagh ring with earrings and a necklace. Don't worry for all 14 days I had my fill of Guinness. Lots of pictures too. Thanks for everything!

"I just LOVE LOVE LOVE working with Authentic!"

Izhar N.

My clients returned from their whirlwind Scottish adventure...loved it !!!...they were able to do everything Bob wanted, and, even Shelly enjoyed the distilleries. Her favourite, actually, was hiking on the Isle of Islay...so, guess it was all worth it!! I, personally, want to say that your ground staff were FABULOUS!!!! Things happen...but, it was all sorted, and both I and my clients were extremely appreciative!! Again, I just LOVE LOVE LOVE working with you and Authentic !!!!

Hi Katie, we wanted to let you know that the trip was fantastic. The accommodations were awesome--particularly Witchery and The Old Manse. All excursions and car rental went smoothly. Thanks for all your help.

Tamara L.

Hi Katie, here is a great feedback from my clients who just came back from Italy:

This was an amazing experience and the trip of a lifetime. We will absolutely return to Italy, and look forward to working with you to help us plan another great itinerary! Even though we are still shaking off some serious jet lag from the trip home, we are still basking in the glow of a wonderful trip and enjoying reflecting on the memories. Thank you so much for your help and making this trip a reality for us!

"Perfect Wales Anniversary Trip"

Jodi J.

CO

Jennifer helped book the perfect trip to Wales for my clients. The guide, Terry, was amazing: knowledgeable, funny and local. He had great insight for my clients that added extra details to everything they saw and did. The hotels were great, the food was amazing with lots of choices. They celebrated their Anniversary on the trip and their small group of 9 got them a card they all signed and made their trip more memorable.

"Wonderful Family Vacation"

Shaia B.

Murfreesboro, TN
