Steve was delightful, the car more than adequate for my mother's walker, and the New Forest is simply beautiful and charming. We particularly enjoyed Exbury Gardens, which Steve had suggested, and our... More

Spent a really enjoyable and interesting few hours on Steve's tour of the New Forest visiting places we would not have known about had we driven ourselves. He is good company and knowledgeable of the customs of the area. Would definitely recommend this tour to anybody visiting the area.

Stayed in the New Forest for a couple of days and decided to give our designated driver a rest and use Platinum Tours. Really enjoyed the tour and the company of Steve, we visited areas we would not have found ourselves and were impressed with his local knowledge. Tea and scones were excellent !!
