          Well timed tour of Stonehenge & Salisbury with bonus stops!
          We did the Stonehenge and Salisbury Cathedral tour. Sally had great communication leading up to the day. Terri was our guide and did a great job of getting us everywhere in a timely manner with information along the way. We even got a few bonus things by seeing some neighborhoods, overlooks and a stop at pub at the end. We were stopping by on a cruise and wanted to see as much as possible during the stop. I felt like Terri gave us time at the stops. We even walked into town and had lunch at an old pub. We saw someone we knew that had booked a large bus tour when we were at salisbury and we had already done Stonehenge and had lunch and walked through most of the Cathedral and they still had to go to Stonehenge! So happy we did a small group tour.

          Great walk and view
          Went there when it was beautiful weather, lovely long walk. Beautiful scenery and relaxing place. Kids loved it and you could possibly take a picnic with you but beware of any midget flies. Don't let your kids run too wild and mind the cliff edge- common sense really. But have a lovely time and break away from the normal bustle. Pop in the pub on your return but beware of the high price for a pint.

          Great day seeing Corfe Castle, Lulworth, Weymouth and other sites
          We had a fantastic trip with Spencer viewing the Jurassic Coast. Since I am a retired science teacher, he made sure I saw the ammonite and fossilized tree and the wonderful geological features even though that wasn’t on our official agenda! Thank you, Spencer and Dorset Tours, for a wonderful day!

          Wonderful tour!
          We had a wonderful tour with Spencer and able to see so many outstanding sites in Dorset. Our tour included visits to Durdle Door, Lulworth Cove & Corfe Castle; driving through historic Dorchester and seeing Poundbury; eating fish and chips in Weymouth; and, viewing and visiting sites in Portland. Spencer is a knowledgeable and friendly local who ensures we had a wonderful time. If you are in Dorset & cannot make one of their regular tours, I highly recommend booking a private tour. We had an enjoyable trip!

          We did the Jurassic Coast shore excursion and it was great. Spencer, our driver and guide, did an excellent job. Ate the best fish and chips ever while on the tour. All in all, had a great time and would definitely recommend Dorset Tours and Spencer

          Wonderful Old English Pub Tour
          We had the best time on a private pub tour led by Spencer of dome the coolest old and quaint English pubs. We stopped at about 5 different pubs and sampled local beer or cider at each one. So much fun and each pub had it’s own unique personality. Best stop and excursion on our cruise for me!

          Trip of a Lifetime
          I just returned to my hotel from today’s tour and had to immediately write this review. That is how absolutely fantastic the experience was! Sally was incredibly helpful and accommodating in helping me craft the perfect private tour. My tour guide, Spencer, was not only knowledgeable but also incredibly friendly and accommodating. Together, they arranged and delivered the trip of a lifetime. As for the scenery, we visited some of the most beautiful places I've ever seen. The tour was expertly designed to showcase the natural beauty and incredible history of the area. I can't recommend this company and tour guide enough – it was an unforgettable adventure!

          Delightful Dorcet
          Many thanks to Marianne for starting off Day 1 of our British Isle cruise by going above and beyond! We were picked up at the Portland Castle stop at 0900 in a 10-passenger van. It was a spectacular tour along the Jurassic Coast visiting Durdle Door (absolutely stunning), Lulworth Cove (even more picturesque and gorgeous), Corfe Castle (ruins) (£12), Weymouth - very popular (busy), coastal town with fantastic fish and chips, and finally finishing at Portland, stopping at the lighthouse and Olympic monument to the 2012 London games. We also saw the famous Portland quarry and “Portland-henge”. Corfe Castle tip: pay the £12 and do the self-guided tour of the grounds. Both my sisters loved how scenic it was. If you don’t do the tour, go to the train station nearby. I believe the train museum was free-we didn’t have time to visit. If you go across to the other side of the tracks (using the bridge), there is a fantastic photo opportunity of Corfe Castle. You can also walk the lower perimeter of the castle grounds (free) in about 15-20 minutes. You can get a free map at the entrance. But, I didn’t find that was worth it with our limited time. Weymouth tip: order your fish & chips from Bennett’s ahead of time and eat them at the Kings Inn next door with your favorite pint. Thank you for that suggestion Marianne! That saved us a lot of time on a tight schedule. We could have used another 30 minutes to 1-hour to really enjoy Weymouth a bit more. We were 3-sisters and our mom (73) enjoying a family trip together. We all enjoyed the tour, especially Marianne’s knowledgeable information, commentary, and all her jokes. Thanks for the entertainment and the very safe drive along the entire route. We were returned at the ship around 4:30pm, in plenty of time before departure. I hope our future guides are as good as Marianne!

          My wife and I did this incredible tour from our cruise. We took a shuttle bus to the mainland (free of charge) and we were met by our guide spencer who whisked away to many stops along the Jurassic coast. Spencers great sense of humor and knowledge of this area was top notch, he was a wealth of information current and historic. There is nothing better then taking a tour with a local. No bs just good clean fun. Thanks again spencer and be safe

          Great tour!
          Recently did the Stonehenge/Salisbury Cathedral tour with Dorset tours. Our ship docked late but Dorset tours was very accommodating so we were still able to enjoy our day and make it back to our ship on time. Our driver, Spencer was informative and also entertaining with his dad jokes. He went out of his way, driving to Salisbury Cathedral while we toured Stonehenge to try to get us tickets but unfortunately the Cathedral was closed to the public that day. We were still able to see the Cathedral exterior and then Spencer drove us to a spot with an amazing view of Chisel Beach.

          Terri is Amazing
          We did The Jurassic Coast Adventure while on a cruise. All of the stops were absolutely beautiful with plenty of time at each location. Terri was an amazing tour guide. She was very informative and passionate about her home town. This was our first time doing a small group tour, and it turned out to be really great having a more personal experience.

          We had the best day touring the Jurassic Coast with this company. We were on a 12-day cruise and this was our best tour by far! Marianne was awesome! So personable and knowledgeable. (Ask her to tell you her lighthouse joke!) she even pointed out the best fish-and-chips place for lunch. Thank you Marianne for such a great day!!!

          Wonderful day with Dorset Tours
          What started as a dreary and gray day at the Dorset castle changed to a beautiful, sunny - if windy - spectacular tour of the Jurassic coast with Spencer as our guide. We arrived by cruise ship and took the port shuttle to the castle, were greeted promptly, and the rest of the day was wonderful. Spencer gave all the information we needed on the sites we passed or stopped at, with plenty of humor to entertain. He even gave some quiet driving time just for rest. That walk to the Durdle Door is an interesting hike - as is the one to the Lulworth Cove. But each stop, and each experience, were worth every minute. If you get Spencer as a guide you’re in good hands. Highly recommend Dorset Tours. So much better traveling with a well-run small group than a large bus on an island like this.

          We did the Jurassic Coast Tours from the Port of Portland . I had a private group of 35. The tour was spectacular. The scenery was amazing. Our Tour guide Spencer made the trip so much fun. Kept us laughing all day. I would recommend them to everyone.

        I helped arrange a trip for a family who recently moved over from Singapore visiting Dorset for the very first time. Sally at Dorset Tours couldn't have been any more helpful as the trip was booked rather last minute but Sally ensured the guests had the best experience arranging a driver and ensuring the tour covered the best parts of the area. We will definitely return and use Dorset Tours again.

        Wow. Spencer picked us (6 adults) up for a day off the cruise ship. What a day! First his thoughtfulness, it was a birthday trip so he had decorations in the car plus a cake, plates, napkins, he had it all for us. Then all the places he took us and the info he shared, amazing. A great variety of things and fit perfectly into the day and what we wanted. Spenser was wonderful, loved him and all the stories he shared and how personable he wad. And that he “shared” stored of his family and growing up with us. He was thoughtful too, we said we wanted fish and chips so he planned to take us to his favorite place but thought to call ahead to find it was busy so he got us the info to order ahead of time and had a plan for us as to where to eat. And then when we wanted more time in a particular place, he adjusted. Without reservation, book a day (or more) with Spenser.

        Private: Dorset: Jurassic Coast Adventure

        The regular viator tour was fully booked and Sally was very helpful and managed to arrange a private tour of 4 couples, but only 3 couples turned up, for the NCL cruise passengers. Thanks Sally

        There were total 3 couples. Daniel, guide and driver, was very nice and he arranged and timed our visit to the various sites before the big tour bus arrived. That was nice so not so crowded at each site. Thanks Daniel for the wonderful experience.

        We were 4 ladies on tour with Danny. What a great tour guide! We went to Stonehenge, Salisbury cathedral, Weymouth and Portland. He had a wealth of information and was a super nice guy. He even led us to where we got traditional scone with clotted cream and tea. Had a brilliant time. Would definitely use this company again if in Portland.
