My name is Carmel and I am the owner and founder of Hobart Snap Shot Tours!
My aim is to create a day you will remember for years to come, a day you will not forget in a hurry. I feel passionate about where I live, its history, its old buildings, its culture, its flora and fauna and most importantly its amazing wines. I would be delighted to impart my knowledge in a personalised tour, especially for you.
I understand when you go on holiday, time is precious and you will want to see as much as you can without feeling rushed or lost or share a tour with a busload of strangers who may not share the same interests as you.
I encourage you to bring your cameras as there will be many photo opportunities. Great memories of your trip to Tasmania need to be preserved.
Included with your personalised tour I would be more than happy to take photos for you at no additional cost. These will be given to you by either email or USB.
Please feel free to choose one of the organised tours or customise your own. Enjoy!
