We emailed them asking if they could do a tour on a day they normally don’t offer tours and they switched some things around to make it happen. Taking us through the places Gary and Carol... More

This four hour tour of some of Britain's most stunning scenery, reaching parts that no regular vehicle would be either capable of or allowed to, would have been brilliant in its own right, but it was made entirely memorable by the skills, knowledge and enthusiasm of the driver. Gary, a charming, born and bred proud Purbeckman, was a non-stop font... More

Four years ago we went on The Hardy Country tour and yesterday we went on The Purbeck Hills tour. Words can't express the beauty of Dorset. Gary your tour guide provides an excellent commentary that is both informative and fun. At mid point Gary breaks out a lovely cake made by his wife and you enjoy a cup of tea... More

If like us, you enjoy travelling off the beaten track to discover new places, then this is definitely the tour for you. 4 of us joined Gary for the tour of Purbeck on a glorious day in Dorset and found ourselves wanting more after the trip. We started with pick up by a land rover at our accomodation and Gary... More

The afternoon Purbeck Tour was a great afternoon spent with Gary our guide and very careful driver. He is very knowledgeable and Friendly, the scenery in the Purbeck is out of this world especially where Gary has access to - views to die for, you would never see from your own cars. The comfort break for homemade cake and hot... More

Took the Isle of Purbeck tour. There were six of us ranging in age from 7-77. We all enjoyed the four hours. The jeep was spacious and comfortable, our host was charming and knowledgable and full of funny stories. We learnt lots about a side of Dorset you don't usually see ( did you know about the hidden oil field?).... More

I brought my mum on the Purbeck hills for a birthday present, and she absolutely loved it. The guide (Gary) was charming and informative, he had a story for every question and was more than happy to listen to our stories, too. The views were stunning. It's not the last time you'll be seeing us, Gary!

The views are superb looking around Weymouth Bay and Portland Harbour. Inside the Fort visitors can see the local history of activities controlled from the Fort both in War and peacetime.

What a fantastic adventure. Being local to the area, we thought we knew Purbeck pretty well. But with Gary's special access permissions we saw places and views we never knew existed. Picnic was amazing. Highly recommended. You should go.
