Wondering if anyone has used an excursion company called Tours Tasmania in Hobart? My wife and I are cruising on the Diamond Princess in December and I am considering one of their excursions, but the only reviews I have found is one on Yelp.

I hope you get to see the Mawson's Hut recreation on Hobart waterfront, great. My son's company is a major sponsor and helped establish it. If you are interested in Antarctic history, you will enjoy the Hut.

Enjoy your adventure.

In addition, the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery nearby has a superb section on Antarctica.
