We booked this tour because we wanted to spend more time exploring the natural areas of the white chalk cliffs. We got so much more than promised. Ish, who met us at the tour starting point, was such a pleasant person and really helped make our hour train ride to Brighton zip by with engaging conversation. Then, Lawrence took us to the South Downs and the Seven Sisters. He did a fantastic job of storytelling and was enthusiastic about the area. I definitely recommend giving this tour a go if you like the outdoors on the seaside! It was phenomenal.

Got to see a lot of sites along the way to 7 sisters and experience 7 sisters from many different angles/locations. The lunch stop was quaint and delicious. I did not feel like I spent more time on the bus than at the locations like I did with the Windsor, Stonehenge and Oxford your.

What a fabulous day!! Better than I could have hoped for. Saw beautiful sights and learned plenty about the area. Never felt rushed and we enjoyed a couple of hours in Brighton before returning to London. Our guide was awesome

I can’t say enough about Lawrence, Ish, and this wonderful tour! Entertaining, educational, well paced. I highly recommend!

I had a really great time. Lawrence was a wonderful tour guide. Knows his stuff and has a wonderful sense of humour.
