Our ship docked in Portland, England and we went to Stonehenge and Salisbury with Discover Dorset Tours. It was a fantastic trip! The transportation met us at the ship on time and got us back on time as well. Our guide was knowledgeable but didn't overwhelm us with information. He was very helpful in getting our tickets and helping us... More

We had a great ride to this area. Jerry, our driver was very informative about the area we driving through to get to ur destination. He also made sure that we covered/hiked the entire area so we didn't miss a thing. We had plenty of time to walk the entire area and have a delicious meal at Luworth Cove.

Just spent a lovely few days with friends in Bournemouth and we decided to do a coach trip. I rang Discover Dorset Tours and explained we were all disabled and couldn't walk very far and asked if the Jurassic Coast tour would be suitable. I received an emphatic yes, if things were too hard to do we could stay on... More

But at about 10am , they called me by saying that the trip was delayed for one hour due to the driver's sick call ,so that they will pick up... More

It was only an afternoon trip but more then sufficient to visit Stonehenge,its exibition and the mock village recreated next to the reception..Highly recommended for a quick... More

This website came up as one of the few which offers trip to Durdle door from Bournemouth. The price was reasonable, driver was nice and friendly and the trip started and completed on time. However, the bus itself was a disappointment. The tour was in an open top bus which I think was not safe for this trip because the... More
