We had a great couple of hours hunting for fossils with Oliver, who was incredibly knowledgeable, approachable and great with the kids. We learned a good deal and the tour was great value too. A must for anyone even mildly interested in dinosaurs.

Went to the museum and on a fossil tour with Oliver, who was very knowledgable and friendly. He contacted us when the weather was bad to change the dates of the tour. We as a family with teenage children loved it.
