We (two couples) spent a most enjoyable last day of our Southampton-Southampton cruise touring the beautiful Jurassic coastline and nearby villages with Andy. After picking us portside, Andy introduced us to panoramic vistas along with the history of Portland, Abbotsbury village, Chesil Beach, Poundbury, the Isle of Purbeck, and Swanage, among others. Our stops ranged from oceanside to mountain top, and were highlighted by a walk along Swyre Head (the highest point of the Isle of Purbeck --extremely peaceful and beautiful) and a refreshing stop for "cream tea" and visit in the charming village of Corfe Castle. Andy was a pleasure to work with in planning our day, and was very knowledgeable, relaxed, and professional. Highly recommend spending a day with Andy.

My wife and two teenage daughters and I spend a day with Andy. We docked in Dover with the Disney Magic. I had booked a private tour with Andy after reading a number of reviews and discussion both here and on Cruise critic. Andy met us at the Ship and we had a nice comfortable ride to Stonehenge. We were able to arrive at Stonehenge before the ships tour due to the route we used being difficult for large motor coaches to use. Andy had arranged our tickets so we were able to immediately take the shuttle to the henge. We enjoyed a couple of hours at Stonehenge and then Andy took us thru Salisbury on our way back to several very nice spots along the coast. Andy is fun to spend the day with and I felt we saw much more that we would have with the ships tour. It was a real bonus that the cost of this private excursion was a bit less than the cost would have been had we booked the tour thru Disney for the 4 of us. If you are thinking about using Andy stop thinking and book your tour now.

Andy met us at the boat and gave us a wonderful tour, answering a myriad of questions, mostly historical and bring the area to life. Descriptions from skipping bombs on the water, to taking us along the jurassic coast, describing Portland stone versus other stones, discussions of local and national politics, day to day life, etc, he laid out a wonderful view of Portland and the jurassic coast. We were lucky to have a beautiful day to see, but it was amplified by the company of Andy at Jurassic Jaunts - a treasure trove of knowledge. I recommend him highly for those of you who wish to see not only the regular stuff, but the off the routine track as well. Just was a wonderful day for us.

We had an excellent drive in Andy. The ship came in late and still managed to get is both to Stonehenge and Salisbury to see the cathedra.. The car was modern and clean. Andy really did an excellent job of dealing with a late arrival and as a tour guide. Note that the price for Stonehenge includes the donation at the cathedral so bring your ticket. Get the Stonehenge ticket on line early to avoid the lines. .
