Our trip to Lulworth cove and Dundee Door was a great experience. Paul our driver and tour guide made the trip even more special with a witty commentary and we learned quite a lot about the areas we visited. I would highly recommend this trip to everyone.

I can't even begin to describe how awesome this trip was! I just came in for the day and feel like I go SO much for my money. All the stops were absolutely breathtaking. It's a steep walk for Durdle Door, so bring your walking shoes and take your time. It's worth it.

The trip was amazing, our tour guide Paul was absolutely the best! I would say one of the best and even better than the private tours, extremely helpful and knowledgeable. I loved every bits of it and I highly recommend it. We were not sure about the place and Paul helped us with what we should be doing and where to go for scenic views. Started on time and had extra time to see/explore durdle door, all thanks to our tour guide. We were just in time to see a seal swimming around.

I had a great trip to Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door. Paul was lovely and gave us fantastic insight into the history of the Jurassic coast. I had plenty of time to explore down by the coast and marvelled at the beautiful views! I felt very safe as a solo traveller and I would highly recommend!

Wow… this place was amazing!! Our tour guide Paul was friendly and very knowledgable. He told us where to go and took us to the top of Durdle Door so we didn’t have to trek up that steep hill from Lulworth Cove! The views were incredible, the hill coming up from Durdle Door is very steep and hard going however, just take your time. The time spent exploring was perfect, more than enough time to spend in each area and take in all the views. Definitely recommend this tour!!
