Great views and exercise. Give enough time for ice cream queues. Would definetely come back again. Need six hours to enjoy the three beaches. Love the pebbles at Duddle door.
First trip with my boy

What a wonderful view and a great guide 😊 Me and my 10 year old son really enjoyed everything about the trip. Bonus was we only had to walk one side of the big hill from Durdle Doir to Lulworth Cove. Definitely recommend this trip. Thank you Tim for being a fantastic guide 😀

Great tours for family

We travelled Durdle Door via Discover Dorset Tours and it was an amazing experience. Both the driver and the guide were very friendly. Had a smooth experience with my 3 year old daughter.

The departure for this tour was in Bournemouth - not Weymouth. I typed in Weymouth when I booked it because that is where we were staying. Viator should Inform customers that Bournemouth is an hour train ride from Weymouth. Tour itself was nice but one couple had entire group wait over an hour because they were “eating lunch” when we were scheduled to return back to departure point. Our nice driver was told by manager to wait for them at least an hour. A set departure time needs to be inforced by tour company-to avoid delay of entire van load of people who’s plans were impacted. He was nice enough to drive us back to hotel instead of taking another train trip. When a customer types in a city, the tours that are offered should depart in that city - NOT an hour away. Please fix this on your website.

Our tour guide Paul was AMAZING so kind and funny! He has SO much knowledge about the local and surrounding areas and filled our day with puns and amazing facts all the way! What an amazing guy- and an equally amazing trip. Beautiful views, made all the better by excellent weather! I would highly recommend going with Discover Dorset for a tour!

OH MY GOD- incredible.

I can't even begin to describe how awesome this trip was! I just came in for the day and feel like I go SO much for my money. All the stops were absolutely breathtaking. It's a steep walk for Durdle Door, so bring your walking shoes and take your time. It's worth it.

I had a great trip to Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door. Paul was lovely and gave us fantastic insight into the history of the Jurassic coast. I had plenty of time to explore down by the coast and marvelled at the beautiful views! I felt very safe as a solo traveller and I would highly recommend!

Great tour with Paul. Better than advertised. Excellent service and good pricing. I highly recommend. Thank you.
Best day trip ever
, Sep 2021
For anyone reading this wondering whether to go on this day trip I would 100% recommend going. The sites you get to see are just stunning, I couldn’t believe I was still in England with the Crystal blue sea, just took my breath away. So much is packed into one day definitely a great deal for your money. Also last but certainly not least our tour guide Paul 😍. What an absolute gem. Was very knowledgeable and told us many facts as we traveled plus was bobbing around making sure we were having a great time and where to go to get the most out of our experience. His warm and friendly demeanour was the cherry on top of a beautiful day.
Fantastic Trip
, Sep 2021
What an amazing day from start to finish Gerry was our guide very informative and happy chap Be prepared for a lot of walking up and down steep slopes and steps well worth the views at the end
Jurassic Coast- Just as stunning as the photos!
, Sep 2021
We managed to tour the Jurassic Coast the day after the busy August bank holiday weekend and before the end of summer break and it was well worth the wait. Gerry our tour guide was super knowledgeable and funny. He made the hour drive down to the coast fly by with his humour and wit. Lulworth Cove and Durdle door are just as stunning as they appear in photos. We had approximately three hours to explore. This allowed us plenty of time to dip our toes into the water, take dozens of photos and soak in all the beauty surrounding us. As students, we also received 10% off our booking which is always a bonus. Looking forward to planning and booking our new tour soon. Thank you
A fantastic day out!

My partner and I really enjoyed the half day trip. Jerry was our tour operator and he was brilliant from start to finish! He was really informative and kept us in the know throughout the journey. The trip was well worth the money as the views and the spots we got taken up were really beautiful and well worth the visit. Thanks Jerry!
