We went on the Golden Cap tour ( four old friends). It was a wonderful trip - two of us are "locals" by birth and Gary was able to tell us things and show us places we had never been. You get to drive down ( and up) places you would never to able to drive yourself. Good stories and... More

My husband and I had a great time on this tour. Gary drove us around the beautiful countryside describing it as we went. What a great way to see the area! We stopped several times to walk around, so bring a camera. Gary also provided a cake and tea snack at the end of the tour.

So pleased to have found Jurassic Safari, we spent an excellent 4 hours exploring some unknown areas and new viewpoints in the landrover. Gary is very personable and enthusiastic, it was fun learning about the area but also lovely to hear stories about his life growing up in such a glorious place. Carol replied to our enquiry promptly and dealt... More

We were able to see so much of this beautiful area of England and learn much of its history, flora and fauna thanks to the hard work and research done by Gary and Carol.... More

We went on the Portland Safari in Gary's Landrover. Gary told a lot of Portlands historie and took us to places we would not have seen when driving around ourselves. Even our teenagers, age 15 and 17, had a fun time. Great job Gary and Carol !

Gary was the perfect guide for our trip around Purbeck. I know this area well, or so I thought. His knowledge is close to encyclopedic, helped by being born and brought up in this area. The beauty of the guided trip was pointing things out which would probably be missed without that local knowledge. It is difficult to decide which... More

Just back from a lovely time seeing the Purbecks I never knew how lovely it was even though I live so close! 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.
