Our tour was excellent! Adam, our guide, was very knowledgeable of the area, engaging, caring and funny and made sure all of us were well taken care of and had a good experience. It was really lovely to experience the English Seaside communities, pastoral views through back roads and books and crannies we would have never found on our own and of course the cliffs are uniquely beautiful. We had a major setback that day with our flights out of England to Norway for the next leg of our trip having been unceremoniously cancelled by Heathrow as the travel nightmare continues, so much of my day was consumed with desperately trying to find alternative travel options which proved to be a nightmare- but Adam was very sympathetic, pulsed other travelers for chargers for my phone since the web searches were draining my batteries, was caring, and supportive. My (grown) children and I felt we were in good hands and would not hesitate to book another tour with this tour group.

Had a fabulous time on this day-trip and tour! Our guide Adam was amazing, had a lot of energy, fun, and very knowledgeable :) It was a very efficient, well-planned tour that took us to wonderful sights. The sites and views were stunning and probably one of my favorite places in England. Would definitely recommend for friends and other travelers!

The tour lived up to expectations. The guide was well informed and presented information in a relevant and engaging way. The tour was well devised with just the right amount of time spent at the major spots. Would definitely recommend the tour to others. For me the highlight was the ferry crossing - seeing so many boats and ships was unreal.

Adam was a great tour guide and showed us a hidden spot with a view of The Seven Sisters. Took some great pictures. Simply had a lovely day and learned a lot!

Our guide, Adam, was outstanding! A great trip for nature lovers!
