We had a fabulous evening touring the isle of Portland with Gary. He was entertaining and extremely informative. The tour brought the island to life showing places and things we would never have found on our own. We would all recommend doing this.

Hi there Really sorry, we have had a few dogs over the years which have upset other customers with allergies etc. So sadly for that reason we only allow dogs if you are booking the whole 6 seats.
