About Dorset Day Trips

It also means we can fit anywhere a car can go, opening up places that even larger minibuses just cannot go!

Our group of six adults had a fantastic time with Darren . We saw places that we would never have seen on other generic tours. Darren knows where the best places are to get the ultimate experience available. We went in his unique , VW camper, Snowy. Jurassic is a huge natural stone area on the water that brings one back to the time of dinosaurs. We saw sprawling Corfe Castle that was magnificent in the sun.We had a wonderful lunch at a local restaurant. The little village church was built in the 1600’s and was still taking care of its parishioners. Darren brought everything we saw to life. A wonderful day that none of us will forget. I would highly recommend taking a tour with Dorset Day trips. Thank you Darren and Snowy for such a memorable day.

I’m so pleased you enjoyed your trip – thank you so much for your review, pics & kind words! In the time available we saw the best of the county of Dorset and its Jurassic Coast, and certainly without spending most of the day on the road - there is so much to see nearby! Hope to see you when you next visit!

Our Jurrasic Ale Trail was an absolutely great fun with Daren and his lovely camper :-) We enjoyed the whole day. Daren is very good host and great tour guide. We could see a lot of beauties on the way, Durdle Door, Corfe Castle, a small church with a very interesting story, amazing small english villages. And visited a couple of great, traditional english pubs with fantastic views and good british ales :-) Thank you Daren and Snowy for this unforgettable adventure.

The whole day was good fun.we traveled to corfe castle and along the coast to durledoor and went on the beach and went to a local English pub and had a fine lunch and a few drinks , the driver was very helpful and had great knowledge of the area and about dinosaurs and smugglers. We had a great sunny day out in the vw camper snowy.if you are on holiday or need a day out..this is worth it. Thank you Dorset day trips for a fabulous day.

It was such a pleasure to show you around, Jason – thanks so much for your review & pics! As you found, my tours are as interesting & enjoyable for locals as for visitors – there’s always something new to discover in Dorset! And no need to worry about “British weather”as I always carry brollies in case it rains! It’ll be great to show you more of Dorset on your next trip!

Snowy is a lovely vehicle and a great way to explore the fantastic sites of the New Forest, Purbecks or North Dorset. Daren is a great host with unlimited knowledge of the area, historical facts and wildlife. Great sense of humour. Highly recommend booking one of Daren’s trips or getting in touch for a personalised tour.

I’m so pleased you enjoyed your trip, Ben - thanks so much for your review & kind words, it was great to see you again! A tour in Snowy is a great way to celebrate an anniversary or special occasion (like a birthday, graduation, prom or even house move!) with friends and family, so a gift voucher makes an ideal present! And as you’ve found, even Dorset-folk can discover new things! Hope to see you again soon!

Daren was a great host. We were in Bournemouth for a week, and couldn't find any other tour company to do exactly what we wanted. He had availability one day and worked with us to accomplish what we wanted to do. He also demonstrated flexibility when we needed it. He threw in a few other things that we didn't expect, but were well worth the time. Highly recommended.

Thanks so much for your review & kind words – I’m so pleased you both enjoyed your private tour! It’s always worth visitors to the area emailing or giving me a call, as I can often do a trip when bigger operators can’t, and can tailor each tour to the guests I have on board Snowy the VW. Hope to see you on your next visit!
