What people are saying about Dorset

Good value. We went on the Jurassic coast cruise to Swanage which was a round trip of about 2 hours. Other options available are to disembark at Swanage and take another ship back. The Captain's commentary was very informative and the crew were helpful and polite. On the day of our trip the weather was perfect so that of course added to a beautiful experience!

Our tour with Riki was fantastic! It was a thorough and enjoyable trip through Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan, with lots of interesting stories and facts along the way. Would definitely recommend this tour as a great way to get to know more about Cardiff and Wales!

Lovely 2 hour trip on the Jurassic coast and an excellent commentary from the captain with some humour as well. Drinks, snacks and toilets on board. Most enjoyable.

I highly recommend this tour! We visited a nice variety of locations, with witty and informative commentary from our great guide. Wales is a beautiful country!
