Would highly recommend this tour. Paul was very knowledgeable and gave us great tips and information. We found out things about the Jurassic Coast we would not have known and got to see many interesting sites. A fab way to see the Jurassic Coast without the hassle of parking your car and with a lovely group of people.

What an awesome day this was! ~Originally booked the half day, but Discover Dorset called then evening before to as ask if we would mind doing there full day at no extra cost as we were the only ones booked. So glad we took up the offer.

The day was fantastic. Paul, our guide was knowledgeable, engaging and funny. The day flew by and the weather held out for the most part. There is a walk included which is good. A little steep, towards the end but worth it. The hike from Durdle door to Lulworth Cove is a nice leisurely walk, even though it was pouring with rain! There was enough time during the tour to get something to eat and spend time discovering for yourself.

We were picked up and dropped off at our hotel.

Would highly recommend this tour. Great way to tour the Jurassic Coast!

This tour in short was brilliant. We had Paul as a tour guide and he was very knowledgeable and very friendly. The tour as a whole was good and we managed to see a lot of the Jurassic Coast and again the suggestions from Paul whenever we stopped off for a walk was spot-on, with Paul constantly giving us knowledge and information about the surrounding area. The only reason why I didn’t score this tour higher is due to two reasons; 1. We were not able to go to sandbanks due to the traffic and 2. It was a very hot day and the air-conditioning in the minivan was not very good. I would still suggest anyone to take this tour though because it was good.

Thank you for your great and detailed review! Yes, there are a few days in the summer holidays unfortunately when Sandbanks is just completely blocked up due to traffic caused by queueing cars to the car parks which are clearly labeled full... It is a thin peninsula which means you drive there and back on the same route with all that traffic and you can stuck there for a long time... As many of our passengers have trains or coaches to catch after the tour, Paul has made the balanced decision on this day not to drive through. We have been notified regarding the air-conditioning which was tended to shortly after the tour. We are glad you had a great time! We hope to see you again!

A super trip around beautiful parts of Dorset. Our guide and driver was clearly very knowledgeable about the local area and gave us some wonderful pieces of knowledge. We were able to visit all the sites thanks to his local knowledge of the roads as it was one of the busiest days of the year for Dorset attractions and some roads had been closed due to the volume of traffic. Just a super day out, thank you 😊

A really amazing day out, as a solo traveller sometimes you can feel left out but this tour makes you feel at home.My guide Paul was amazing and very informative and was the perfect tour guide with a mix of humour and history everywhere we went, he gave good advice in where to go and some of the best things to do. If I'm ever back in Bournemouth I will definitely do one of their tours again.

This trip i took with my husband was amazing from the minute it started. Gerry our guide was so knowledgeable from start to finish, and was sooo accommodating with the slightly worsening weather, but still enjoyed every minute.
The sites we visited were amazing.
I would highly recommend the day trip, and if you are lucky enough to get gerry the tour guide even better!!!
Thanks again for a wonderful trip and giving us a chance to make more great memories xxx
