Christmas present from our children as my husband has difficulty walking. We chose the Purbeck Safari, would highly recommend this, Gary was so helpful, enthusiastic, a font of knowledge on the history of the area we covered, weaving stories of his family of farmers backed up with pictures, so you had real feel of the beautiful countryside and the people...

We happened upon Jurassic Safari via Tripadvisor, and phoned to see if the tour could accommodate our 9 and 11 year old. The owners were lovely on the intake to ensure the last available slot was suitable, and went out of their way to accommodate the children in snacks and conversation. The Land Rover was an experience in and of... More

We have just got back after having a fantastic afternoon doing the Purbeck Hills Jurassic Safari. Gary was a superb host with so much interesting and amusing knowledge about the area. Would highly recommend this tour if visiting Weymouth. PS. The cake and hot drink was a nice touch.

Having been a regular visitor to Dorset for many a decade, I wasn't too sure what worth this would be, but - within moments of it starting - I was hooked: Gary is a wonderful host with a true passion for what he does, and he brought everything to life, and took us to places that were astonishing, remarkable and...

We live in Dorset and booked this on the recommendation of friends - booked the Purbeck Safari. There were only four of us on the trip I imagine if there were six it could be a bit cramped. We see parts of Purbeck that we didn't know about and are unlikely to see again unless we tour again as much... More

We had one day in Weymouth in January. How best to spend it. A stroll in the morning followed by a 4 hour Jurassic Safari.No not cheap, but without doubt the best four hours we could possibly have had. My wife had no idea what to expect as it was something of a surprise. We were picked up promptly and... More

We went on the Portland tour with Gary, and thoroughly enjoyed our 2 hours with him. His enthusiasm for the area was infectious. Our party consisted of our family with 2 teenage boys, grandma and the dog ... Everyone was happy and learned such a lot about Portland and it's history. Can't write a review without also mentioning the amazing... More

What a fantastic 5 hours we had! Gary was full of information and old family stories. He drove us around places he grew up telling us his child hood memories and all about his family. I did sit in the very back so I couldnt see out of the window as it was a bit low and I ended up... More

Great day with friends on the 4 hour Purbeck Safari. So easy to arrange pick up place and picnic along with a bottle of Prosecco to celebrate. Gary regaled us with many local stories and history of the area. The views were stunning every where we went from Corfe to the coast. We wore sensible walking shoes for our walk... More

I was treated today to a Jurassic Safari Trip in the Purbecks with a group of friends. We were picked up by Gary and driven around to some of the most beautiful spots in the Purbecks.
