The tour of the Forest with Harry at the wheel is the best you'll get. We were fortunate to see a herd of Red Deer and Fallow Deer which we would not have seen otherwise. I doubt there is a question about the New Forest that Harry hasn't been asked before. He covers so much in the 4 hours. His... More

Harry picked us up at our hotel in Southampton. He is a true British gentleman who has a rich history of the experiences with the New Forest and you'll not find anyone or any tour who knows more about the forest. The experience was quite pleasant and educational. It is well worth the money.

We all really enjoyed seeing the herd of red dear and another of roe dear and going to the reptile centre. Then Harry dropped him and his mum off... More

I stumbled across newforestminibustours.whilst looking at things to do in the New Forest. I had a few email exchanges with Harry and he suggested to do the tour first thing as we may want to re-visit some of the places. Top Tip Harry, He picked us up from our B&B in his 7/8 seater mini bus which was immaculately clean... More

Harry's naturalness immediately motivated our group of six. Transporting us into an awareness of wilderness and tranquility, as we embraced this outstanding natural beauty of living history. The curiosity of 'Rights of Common' - through freedom to roam for both man and beast, amidst brindled glades, lush grasses, yellow and purple heathland, dense oak and broadleaf. Thank you Harry for... More
