We went on a four hour Purbeck safari on a summer's afternoon while staying in Weymouth. It was the best thing we did while away. We saw so much in the four hours, that quickly passed by. Gary kept us entertained the whole time with his local knowledge, history and personal stories of the area.

We saw Courf Castle from a fantastic view point that most people visting the Castle wouldn't be able to see. The castle looked majestic. Another favourite point for me was "Heavens Gate" which gave an amazing 360% view of Dorsert.

There is so much history in Purbeck that I was unaware of and the tour is also a good way to keep this alive.

Gary's wife had made cakes as well which where very tasty with a cup of tea when we stoped to admire the coast line and take photos. We would definitely take another tour when we are are back in the area.

Fantastic tour ☺ .

My family and my brother and his wife went out with Gary for a day that proved wet with poor visibility. Gary ensured we made the best of it and the safari was still very interesting and lots of fun. Gary knows his stuff! I would certainly recommend this trip to anyone who wants to get off the beaten path. The picnic lunch prepared by Gary's wife was wonderful-too bad the rain kept us inside the Land Rover but there was still room to enjoy it. Thanks Gary for a great day.

I knew we would enjoy this trip from the moment we booked it with Carol. Gary's extensive local knowledge was very interesting and entertaining. We found that he was very adaptive to talking about areas relevant to us especially as we have a mutual farming connection. His tales relating to his ancestors were highly informative. Finally Carol's Victoria sponge cake is exceptional. Thanks again would love to do another tour if in the area.
