    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.

    You should be aware that the climb down to Durdle Door is not easy. Those unsteady on their legs may struggle. Younger folks don’t see to have any problems. There was a 3 year old on my trip who went down and back up without any problem. Dogs also seem to be able to cope without problems.
