Recommended length of visit: More than 3 hours
Owner description: Dorset Day Trips offer an exciting range of award-winning guided sightseeing day tours around Dorset & the New Forest, all from the comfort of our fantastic ‘70’s-style VW camper! With pick-ups in Poole or Bournemouth, the VW comfortably seats 7 passengers, making our trips really personal and fun. It also means we can fit anywhere a car can go, opening up places that even larger minibuses just cannot go!

The trip was a lot of fun and very interesting. I never thought i could see the best of Dorset's attractions in just one day. Thanks to Darren and his comfy camper fun, my wish to see the Jurassic Coast and the Purbecks was fulfilled with just a very cheap price. Much recommended!

A day out in the Dorset countryside, this was truly amazing. Daren knows so much about the area and all of us learnt a lot about the various places we visited, including some of the gang who have lived in Dorset their whole lives. The experience of going around in a VW Kombi was fantastic and with it being new from Brazil meant it was totally reliable but looked like the 70s . I am looking forward to doing some of the other trips on offer as I am sure they will all be as good as the Hardy tour

The whole day (and it was a whole day) was meticulously planned with way more stops than we expected. This was great for the children as there was always something to get out and see, and when we were on the move Daren (our driver) had plenty of fascinating facts to entertain us with. It was a really memorable day out and all we had to do is to sit back and enjoy it. Highly recommended.

A friend and I took our young children out for a Dorset Day Trip with this company, and I cannot recommend them highly enough.
For starters, what could be a cooler mode of transport than a 1970s-style VW camper van?
Then there's no route to plan, no sat-navs taking you up the wrong road, no maps crinkling up on your lap. Darren the driver has all this sorted, so all you have to think about is sitting back and enjoying the ride.
As we expored the Dorset coast and country we had loads of envious looks from other motorists as we cruised along in the immaculate white T2 camper.
Darren had thought of everything to make ours a fun and memorable trip. He pitched things just right for the kiddies with tales of pirates, castles and ghosts. He presented us all with goody bags of little Dorset treats. And he had stuff such as sun cream just in case we had forgotten ours.
Even if you think you know beautiful Dorset, chances are that Daren will come up with a fact or figure that you didn't know about.
In all a fun, relaxed yet professional outfit.

Spent the day today on our Dorset Day trip adventure. It was with my friend and both our 3 year old boys. From start to finish Driver Daren had really thought through our adventure and we had loads if treats along the way. I would recommend this trip for all ages and whether you are new to Dorset or not. I have been here over 20+ years and learnt more today than those past years!! Will certainly be booking again. There's lots to see in our lovely county!
