A very informative tour and well presented with historical pictures that bring to life the harshness of the conditions for the early inhabitants of Hobart. Thoroughly enjoyable introduction to Salamanca, especially on a quieter weekday!

Peter's knowledge and ability to share the information was fantastic. Peter put stories in context and showed us places and things we would not have noticed by ourselves.
