Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We had a fabulous time with Simon and his donkeys, Hector, Paris, Paddy and Flynn.
We had the opportunity to groom the donkeys and then went on a walk with Hector and Paris.
Simon loves his donkeys and they love him too.
We learnt lots of interesting facts about Donkeys.
Simon was so patient with us as we were a little apprehensive about walking the donkeys, however by the end we were loving the experience.
We would highly recommend Simon and his donkeys as we had a lovely time.

Simon was very informative and knowledgeable. Clearly loves the donkeys! We had cuddles and groomed the four donkeys. Simon made us a lovely cup of coffee too. We then took hector and Paris out for a walk crossing fields and taking in the lovely scenery. It was great fun and absolutely loved it. We will def be back and will recommend 😊

An amazing experience. Simon was very good with all of our grandchildren, even the nervy one was soon enthralled in grooming and finally leading the donkeys on a walk through woods and fields. "We were there ages and I never got bored." said Edith. We were all sorry to leave. More than excellent value for money.

My son adores Donkey's, so imagine my delight at finding Donkey Walking Adventures in Dorset. Our family had a most memorable 4 hours surrounded by Paddy, Flynn, Paris and Hector and our lovely host Simon. We had the opportunity to groom these cheeky characters, feed them their favourite treats and take them on a nice long walk through the countryside. It was such a wonderful adventure, going for a leisurely walk in the fresh air trying to persuade the boys not to eat all of the greenery around them!! We all had plenty of donkey cuddles along the way and lots of laughs. Simon was kind enough to take photos of our special day and also had antiseptic cream on hand as there were lots of stinging nettles that were hard to avoid. I would highly recommend this walking adventure to everyone. The prices were very reasonable and it is certainly something we will never forget. I would also recommend that you wear trousers for this walk and walking boots or wellies as it can get very wet and muddy. Long sleeve tops would also be a good idea as the paths can get very narrow and there is lots of overhanging branches and nettles everywhere. Thank you Simon for a wonderful morning/afternoon. I know we will be back.

If you are reading this post and love Donkey's like we do, don't delay. Make sure you email Simon and get yourself booked in for a truly wonderful experience!

Absolutely fantastic morning with Simon and his helpers. We were a group of young children aged 5-12 and parents so went for a cuddle, grooming and walk session. Every stage was slow and relaxed and we never felt rushed in any way. Simon was absolutely fantastic with both kids and adults alike. The donkeys were cuddly and relaxing whilst also naughty and funny and Simon could answer every question about them and obviously knew each animal so well. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend a visit for anyone - incredible value for money

Wonderful couple of hours in the company of these smart, loveable four-legged rogues. Our group ranged from donkey-fans through to donkey-phobic but we’re all converted and would love to do again. Idyllic setting too. Highly recommended.

We had an amazing time donkey walking with Simon and the boys.

From start to finish, the experience was fantastic. Simon was so knowledgeable, helpful and clearly really cared for the donkeys.

We enjoyed grooming the 4 boys, a coffee and then a walk along some lovely tracks. The donkeys themselves were beautiful, easy to interact with, well looked after and clearly enjoyed the experience.

We can't recommend it enough and we will definitely return. This is perfect for all types of groups, including children.

We had the best few hours with Simon and the wonderful donkeys.

Such lovely, friendly creatures. Flynn really won my daughter over.

Amazing value for money - cuddling, grooming and walking the donkeys. Simon was a wonderful host and makes a good cuppa!

We well definitely be back in the summer
