If you want to know about the history of Portland then this is the trip for you. We spent a lovely afternoon with Gary, who was extremely knowledgable and told us some interesting tales of days gone by in Portland. Hot chocolate and a Victoria sandwich made by Carol added that special touch. Highly recommended and look forward to our... More

A little delayed in writing this review as we went on this safari at the end of October. Me and my husband and our son were only staying in Weymouth for a few days and so limited time available to do the things we wanted to do. I rang Jurassic Safari to see if they were able to accommodate us... More

What a great way to learn more about the local area. Gary & Carol have clearly spent a great deal of time researching facts to add to this unique experience. Our 4-hour tour of the Purbecks took us onto private land and fields overlooking the beautiful town of Corfe with its unique heritage and steam railway. Gary's wealth of knowledge... More

With limited time to show my family this spectacular county's coastline, countryside & villages we called the experts, Jurassic Safaris. We chose the full day safari with the pub lunch at The Scott Arms in Kingston, overlooking the magnificent Purbeck hills & valley down to Corfe Castle ruins. It was warm enough to sit out in the beer garden with... More

Cannot rate this trip high enough, absolutely fantastic although I've lived in Poole all my life and thought I knew the perbecks well Gary soon put a stop to that! Apart from being a font of knowledge he has a great passion for the area and his tour will certainly be back for other tours. Thank you team Jurassic Safari

Can't recommend this highly enough. Gary was a great host, full of interesting stories and local knowledge. The scenery is fabulous, the land rover is comfortable, and the cake was delicious - we had an amazing time and loved every minute!

We booked the Purbeck tour, and visited lots of places that could only be accessed in a Land Rover, and with the kind co-operation of local private landowners. Gary our guide was interesting, knowledgeable and fun. His wife Carol provided a delicious cake to enhance our coffee stop. We were a party of six - three generations, and we all... More

This is a truly enjoyably 4hr tour of some of the hidden gems of Dorset. It’s a good starter for a trip around Dorset. We did the Purbeck trip, though there others options available. Gary was a great host, a truly delightful person, who enjoys interaction with the guests. Knows his local history very well, even to the origins of... More

This trip is an absolute must! We love Dorset and have been coming for 35years but what Gary showed us today on our 4hr Purbeck tour opened our eyes to so much more Dorset has to offer! From booking our trip with Carol who was very friendly and informative and does great flapjack! To meeting Gary our guide was first... More
