Frequently asked questions of Discover Tasmania Tours. 

During tour enquiries and bookings, a number of common questions are raised and the answers to some are found here. This area is updated regularly.

What's a private charter?
  • This service applies to hiring the driver/guide and our modern comfortable vehicle that can accommodate between one and four (1-4) passengers.  The cost is the same for 1 or 4 guests.

  • Larger groups are also catered for upon request.

 

I provide a pick up and drop off service around Launceston CBD accommodation or the Launceston Visitor Centre.

Why's there a "per person" price?
  • Where guests are not travelling the state together and are happy to share a tour, a per person price applies.

  • On some tours, I arrange to meet and greet guests near the attraction and they need to make their own arrangements to arrive on site and on time before the tour commences.  On these tours I can take up to ten (10) guests on tour.  Eg Trevallyn Power Station tour.

 

I provide a pick up and drop off service around Launceston CBD accommodation or the Launceston Visitor Centre.
