Over the years, we have operated many tours to Tasmania at different times and of varying lengths, but given the success of our recent tours, we have again opted for this in-depth and comprehensive tour capturing the history, beauty and the spectacular scenery of Australia’s southernmost state.

Tasmania is a charming variety of historic elegance, alpine wilderness and stunning mountains that pierce the sky, spectacular coastal scenery, scenic coastal towns and quaint colonial villages, rare flora and fauna, bustling markets, mighty rivers rushing through rain-forested gorges, idyllic and isolated beaches, lush and fertile farmland and much, much more. With its distinct seasons and unique microclimate, Tasmania is a favoured destination for those who enjoy more seasonal variation than on the mainland. As winter, at last, gives way to spring, Tasmania is the perfect place to see the changing of the seasons — as long days and colourful blooms return to this beautiful island.

“Everything is taken care of ensuring a relaxed holiday. Way to go for us “older” people. Every day is different with no pressures.

I used to think that knowing before a holiday exactly the route and places to stay and see would spoil the anticipation. Not so! We took one day at a time and found it exciting. We appreciated the not too early starts and finish each day and the spare time included.

As this was our first tour we enjoyed the company of the group. Difficult to select a highlight. There was so much of interest. I did enjoy the Cataract Gorge and our walks up there and Mt Wellington. But Woolnorth and Seahorse World were fantastic too!”

“I would just say if it’s a “Maher Tour” don’t hesitate”
– Sonia Wall

“A very comfortable trip which encompassed all Tasmania has to offer. 17 of us on a 46 seater coach was great!”
Carolyn Evans

“Excellent organisation from first marking booking. Clear directions for meeting up with the group and a great ticket package. Would highly recommend Maher as a high quality tour company.”
– Lois Rowe

We recently had the pleasure of a couple of Maher Tours and we are happy to recommend that organisation to everyone who enjoys travel.

Our first tour was a fortnight in Tasmania. We came across this by chance in a magazine and it sounded like a good one so we joined that tour. It was better than expected – it was excellent! One comment was what would you do for two weeks in Tasmania. Well in that time we saw lots of places that we would never have found by ourselves, (we had self-driven previously) and every day was a highlight.

After the Tasmanian experience we had no hesitation in joining a month long tour of Canada and New England in the Autumn. Again very enjoyable. The “Fall Colours” were amazing, the places where we stayed were extremely interesting.

Both tours were very well organised, first class accommodation, varied and beautiful places to visit, and with very enjoyable company.

We had the added pleasure on both tours of having part of the Maher Family Company as tour leaders. This added an extra dimension of personal attention and family atmosphere to the tours, which made the tours all the more enjoyable.

We judge the experiences that we had as first class. We are happy to recommend Maher Tours, in fact we are now looking forward to our next Maher Tour. – Happy Traveller
