“Jurassic coast and isle of Purbeck Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

Had an awesum day, the tour guide Jim is very lovely and helpful with questions. The tour is great value and takes you to many beautiful places along the jurassic coast that I would have been hard to get to or that I would have never known about. Highly recommend it :) It would be good though if there was a tour going from London or a later tour as I had to get up very early to get to Bournemouth to start the tour.

“Discover Dorset Tours (Isle of Wight)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

I very much enjoyed the coach tour to the Isle of Wight. The driver, Steve, was helpful, informative and courteous. The tour covered quite a large part of the island, allowing us to see a variety of landscapes, with the visits to the Needles and to Osborne House being the highlights: Godshill was also a very interesting and attractive village and made a good lunch stop. I should have liked to have seen Carisbrooke Castle as well, but there was obviously not enough time for this, particularly as the ferry across to the island was late due to a technical fault. The late running of the tour was compounded by some passengers' failure to return to the coach on time on more than one occasion, despite the driver's very clear instructions. Steve is to be commended for keeping calm and staying polite despite these delays, which were definitely not his fault.
I should also like to commend Naomi in the office who answered my emailed queries before I booked the tour extremely promptly and in a most friendly and helpful manner. Thank you, Steve and Naomi and all the staff at Discover Dorset Tours.

“Good activity”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

Hi - The the Zurasic coast tour was good.
Positives : The places are worth seeing. Should have given us more time @ Durdle door.
Guide was very friendly and helpful.
Pick up and drop is a very helpful feature.
Negatives:
Could not hear the guide's voice in the van - should have used a mic/radio
I'd suggest the tour organisers to revisit the schedule to give more timr at durdle door and remove certain places like the steam train.
Can was late and so tour started late but ended before time.
