Gerry the tour guy was absolutely amazing he knows so much history about Bournemouth and Poole I would definitely go back there and use them again he was such a fun and friendly guy would recommend the tour to anyone who wants to learn about the places you drive past 100% fantastic tour thank you Gerry you was amazing and we will be back that’s for sure Thank you we will be coming back again definitely Gerry went out of his way to make sure we were back to our accommodation safely and because he knew we were tired from walking- what a gentleman!!

Our driver, Paul, was a wonderful host! He told us lots of interesting details as we drove through Bournemouth and Poole on the way to Lulworth- very knowledgeable and entertaining! I definitely recommend this trip!

Our guide George was very sweet and we loved the fact that we could wander by ourselves for 3 hours, giving us the freedom to explore! Will do it again!

Make sure to wear your comfort shoes to enjoy the view, as it needs long walks.

It was a well planned tour with adequate time at each halt. Had a great time
