We just finished our guided tour to the seven sisters and it was everything we wanted and more! The tour guide Lawrence was so funny and friendly. He shared a lot of knowledge with us. Expect to do some walking. Although you are driven around to the sites my husband and I racked up 10k steps each. The tour was supposed to end at the train station but Lawrence offered to take people to Brighton Pier if you wanted which he didn’t have to do. I would recommend this company for any your.
