South Coast Track; BEST. THING. TO. DO. EVER.
I relished in the disconnection from my regular lifestyle and the simplicity of our existence while travelling the track. Physically, I found
climbing the Ironbounds punishing but satisfying. I loved the variety of terrain, methods of travel and activity eg walking, climbing, mud
sliding, crawling, flying, boating, swimming. Nom and Masd were super! They were both passionate about their role, full of local (+
regional + national) knowledge and were supportive and encouraging. We were well fed and safe (special mention to the superb cooking
ability of these two!!!) plus allowed to explore the track at our own pace. Could not recommend these two guides more highly or the
bonds formed with my fellow trekkers. Thank you all round.

Booked the East Coast Cycle Trek with TasEx and have nothing but praise for the efforts of the team. The booking was seamless, and the pre-trip information was good. A few additional questions from me along the way about what to pack were also answered promptly, and enabled us to get ourselves ready for a week away. Arrived in Launceston, and our bikes and initial host were there 15 minutes before the allotted time. A quick trip to the start line, followed by some settling in and ensuring that the bikes and us were ready, and we were off (didnt go too far though as the Bakery got in the way !). The trip went perfect and every hotel were expecting us, perhaps not too hard if we were the only cyclists, but nevertheless we were greeted on first name terms. As slight hiccup with one of the bikes was quickly addressed with a guide dropping in from Launceston for some quick on-the-spot repairs while we devoured yet another coffee at a bakery. And then the run through to Maria Island, an absolute highlight of any Tassie trip. Returning from the Island we were picked up, and then ferried to our final destination in Hobart where we said farewell to our bikes, and offered our thanks to TasEx for a well organised and run self-guided tour.

Just got back from our Mull Odyssey cruise. An amazing, truly special holiday. So many highlights to pick from but the amazing columnar basalt rock formations on Staffa; Lochbuie Standing Stone Circle; dolphins bow riding; huge jellyfish; 'helping' crew the ship; Tobermory; sunsets & rainbows; Iona and the fabulous scenery are a good start. Special thanks to Christophe and Amy for going above and beyond being the crew. I cannot recommend this fabulous trip and company enough!

Thank you to Chris and Amy for a most enjoyable adventure. We visited places that will stay in our thoughts throughout the winter months ahead. Amy's cooking was exceptional and Christophe a very informative guide and skipper. We would love to return.

          About Tasmanian Expeditions

          Tasmanian Expeditions, as its name suggests, specializes in trips to Tasmania. The Company specializes in taking its travelers to adventures off the beaten path.

          About St Hilda Sea Adventures

          St. Hilda Sea Adventures provide the unique experience to see Scotland from the sea. They offer many activities and private excursions - a perfect travel experience for families, older travellers, and small multi-gen groups.

          What Makes Them Stand Out?

          Taking only up to 11 guests (6 on St Hilda and 11 on Seahorse II), their tours are incredibly unique, as you cruise aboard a classic ex-tall ship (St Hilda) or a proper small ship (Seahorse II). Activities include sailing, swimming, sea kayaking, paddle boarding, fishing, rock pooling, and lobster potting. Or, you can simply choose to just relax and watch the spectacular wildlife and scenery float by.

          Who Travels With Them?

          All ages and all types enjoy traveling with St. Hilda Sea Adventures. Families, couples, and solo passengers are all welcome. Passengers can choose to do as much or as little as they like. This is a great trip for young kids to enjoy as well, for the thrill of hoisting the sails like a true sailor.

          Where Do They Operate?

          The West Coast of Scotland is where they specialize, the Outer and Inner Hebrides specifically. Such a niche focus is a huge positive for those interested in getting a unique view of this part of the world.

          Why Travel With Them?

          Their Scottish cruises give you the opportunity to see extraordinary wildlife and to cruise aboard a small ship with skipper and chef and a small group of passengers. All food is included, and there are many opportunities for interesting excursions. Some excursions are included in the price however, you can also arrange excursions based on your interests. These are not included but allow for a wonderful amount of personalization to your travel experience with St. Hilda Sea Adventures.
