What people are saying about Poole

Really good trip. The microphone wasn't working so couldn't hear the commentary. Driver and guide very amenable. Only downfall was there was a group of students, 2 of whom were 15 minutes late when we were due to return. The teachers couldn't contact them and had no idea where they were. The coach was not running, due to local guidelines in the parking lot and emission of fumes - students were complaining about this, even though they were the cause of having to sit in a stuffy coach! Driver and guide 10/10, students 0/10!

Took the scenic route through Bournemouth and Poole, which was cool. 3-3.5 hours on-site to do self guided looking around. Area itself was quite crowded with limited access to the beach by the Durdle door and definitely not stroller or wheelchair friendly. Plenty of uphill and downhill walking, so hopefully your knees are in good shape. Excellent trip.

Brilliant trip, cannot fault it. Our guide Paul was very knowledgeable and just great!. Definitely recommend taking water, wearing appropriate footwear and your swimming stuff if walking down to durdle door. Also leave at least 40mins to go and experience the stair hole.

The guide, Paul was very good. Showed lots of interesting spots on the way to Durdle door and quick stop for taking photos.

Paul was a great driver and guide. The site itself is amazing. Durdle door is unique and worth the excursion.
