    I am looking for a 3-day tour of Tasmania beginning Hobart and ending Launceston. I found Viator and others but trouble finding Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday. Seem to start on Wednesday or Friday. Want to include Freycinet, Wineglass, Cradle, etc. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Would arrive in Hobart Monday and leave from Launceston Friday last week of November 2017.
