Really great to see nature and to hear all about Garys childhood growing up on a farm and seeing parts of Dorset you wouldn't know existed. Stopped for a lovely cup of tea and home baked cakes overlooking... More

We can really recommend this great day out to anyone looking for an alternative way of getting off the beaten track and seeing parts of Dorset over tracks you wouldn't normally get to. Gary and Carol are the perfect hosts - full of passion and enthusiasm about the land and the more unusual side of the history behind it. Setting... More

I'd recommend this trip to anyone. We did this for my friends mums 65th birthday and had a brilliant time, even though the weather wasn't ideal. Gary has such incredible passion and knowledge about the area. It's great for people of all ages who want to try something different.

Finding myself with an unexpected day off I decided to join the Jurassic Safari last Saturday and am so very glad that I did. From the pick-up point at Wareham I was transported into a magical landscape by the excellent driving skills of Gary Fry and by his enthusiasm, knowledge and love of the Dorset countryside. Gary and Carol had... More

I booked a trip for my family with Jurassic Safari after reading reviews online. This turned out to be an amazing experience for the whole family. Carol was very helpful in accepting our multiple changes to the pick-up point location and even helped us with a booster seat for my 3 year old! Throughout the safari, Gary shared with us... More

Booked the Safari as a last minute birthday treat for my husband. We had a wonderful day and enjoyed good weather so the views were spectacular. Gary's wealth of knowledge and Carols amazing birthday cake made it a really special day. Our ages ranged from 10 to 50 plus and we all had a great time. A fantastic day out... More

On visit from the Philippines my party of four loved this trip! We saw wild deer, falcons hunting and the most amazing views, maganda talaga! (So beautiful!) Our host Gary, had many funny and interesting stories. It was the Purbeck tour we did, but they have other ones too. This is so different from the usual commercial tourist experience and... More

Simply a wonderful afternoon spent exploring the Purbecks and hearing stories of Corfe Castle, wildlife, local history and notable locals. Ages spanned from 77yrs to 5yrs - there was something for everyone. Will certainly think about booking again soon. The highlight of the kids summer holiday.
