Went on 4 hour safari to Purbeck. Garry is very pleasant and knowledgeable about the area and history. Carol's cakes are extremely yummy! Unfortunately it was a very foggy day and we could not see much at all. Most of the sights were shrouded in fog and we were shown photos of them. The best bit was looking down on... More

Thank you so much for your constructive feedback, we are so sorry that your experience was not as good as we would have hoped. We are so glad however that you enjoyed the cakes, commentary and views of Corfe castle. It was such a shame about the weather, normally we do offer an alternative route but on this occasion we...

Time slowed down and Gary was the magician who did that. It was such a lovely trip. He was a fountain of information and his knowledge of local history was just never-ending. His love of this part of the country was infectious. A hot cup of tea and home-made flapjack filled the tummy whilst looking at the view from Heaven's... More

We had a fantastic morning with Gary away from the madding crowds in the Purbeck Hills (we were the 498th clients). Informative and fun, excellent fayre provided by his wife. Some stunning views (heaven's gate and Corfe Castle). He also told us the amazing secret industry here (won't spoil it for you). Thanks again Gary, the highlight of our holiday.

We had a wonderful trip around Portland ! Gary was a fantastic host full of enthusiasm all the way ! There was so much to see on this small island with an amazing amount of history. We traveled with my two daughters, our youngest being 8 years old. We were rather concerned that she would not enjoy the trip and... More

Our family of 5 thought this was a real highlight of their holiday. The tour begins at the Weymouth park and ride where you can leave your car all day for £3. We opted for the Purbeck with picnic. Its an area Id never really heard of before and thought it would be fresh seeing something knew from the prospective... More

Well, where do we start! Friendly Gary picked us up from Weymouth Park and ride and another lady joining our trip. We travelled from there up to the Isle of Purbeck with stories of the local history and Gary's life to guide us on our way. His passion for Dorset overflows as he engages you in nature, views and information.... More

You have to visit and see this coastline if you never have before, to realize what our coastline is like and what nature gives us.

Gary took the four of us out for the Purbeck Hills Safari last week. As our cottage was in the Purbeck region, he kindly picked us up from right outside our cottage. I was a little curious about how the four hours would be filled, but the time passed incredibly quickly. Gary was brought up on a dairy farm in... More

I went to Jurassic Safari and it was brilliant. Gary (the tour guide) brought the place to life with stories of when he was young and he knew a lot about the area and nature. I would definitely recommend this, it is a great tour and I would do it again! They also have great cake!!! Elliott aged 11
