He gave us a day to remember at Cradle Mountain and surrounds He was very professional and went out of his way to ensure we had a very enjoyable and informative day. In fact, we rebooked Howard for a day tour of Hobart and once again -... More

Thanks for making my dream come true! I have been dreaming of going to a beautiful mountain like Cradle Mountain since I was small and it finally came true! It was snowing when I went there a few days ago and everything was worth it.

With our reservation for a group day trip to Tasmania booked a day in advance, we received a private tour, with personalized guidance and high end transportation from Howard at Cradle Coast Tours. Howard was extremely knowledgeable, eager to educate us with interesting facts about Tasmania and Australia. After spending the day with him, I felt like I had lived... More

Relaxed Cradle Mountain tour. Howard knowledgeable but doesn't overload you with facts and figures. Weather was not too great but Howard was flexible with the itinerary and was able to improvise

Howard took a group of us to Cradle Mountain to start the Overland Track and picked us up 6 days later. We changed the day and the time on him and it was still no problem. He was very easy to deal with and knowledgeable about Tasmania and its history and environment. I definitely recommend Howard for any future tours.

Thoroughly enjoyed my tour of Burnie and the surrounding areas. Howard is very knowledgeable about the area. Howard was able to change his tour plans easily to suit myself and the lady that joined us. Very economical too. A good day out.

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour. Howard has very good knowledge of both the areas. Tour itself was leisurely paced and Howards history of both the tours was pleasurable. I would recommend cradle to coast to anyone who wants to visit beautiful Tasmania.

We tried to book Howard Smith for a private nature tour. His communication skills are terrible, but in the end we thought we had booked a special tour for 1 complete day. When we arrived, we learned that he had booked another couple, who had no interest or knowledge of birding or nature. We were very disappointed, cancelled the tour... More

whilst we appreciate your input, it would have in fact been better if you had revealed the what actually happened. That you wanted a private tour but were not prepared to pay for the privilege and were a bit put out that others dared come on the same tour. A shame, as we all had a great time... sorry you...

Howard stepped in at a short notice to fill in when our previous plans didn't work out. He is a personable, knowledgable guide with a sense of humour. We did a half day tour of Railton and Sheffield as we were interested in seeing the topiary and murals but ended up seeing lot more than expected. Even paid a visit... More

While visiting Burnie as part of a cruise, we took the tour to Cradle Mountain with Cradle Coast Tours. The coach was comfortable and the scenery was amazing. Our guide was very familiar with the area, friendly, and allotted plenty of time for us to visit the various stops along the way. One of our favorite moments was coming across... More
