    Lawrence was our guide for the day Monday 6th September 2021. It was a well organised tour, we had an unexpected heatwave and Lawrence had kindly cooler boxed up some bottles of water and was offering them out along with rushing back to the bus before us to turn the aircon on to cool the bus down which wass very consider and thoughtful. You were given adequate time at each view point to wander a little which was perfect as it didn't feel rushed at all. There was hand sanitiser in the van and Lawrence kept his mask on whilst inside so if you are worries in regards to Covid, I think they made you feel safe. Laurence was full of knowledge and was able to make us giggle. Would definitely recommend this tour. Oh and the cafe where you stop does have a vegan option if that is a concern for anybody and they sold vegan magnums at the other cafe where you stop off too. Thankyou so much for a lovely tour in a very scenic area. I was dropped near to where I was staying too. No complaints at all.

Lawrence was informative, jovial, engaging, and adept at answering questions. With COVID measures, he had sanitizer, masks, reported he cleaned the van before/after the tour, and made people feel reassured on the tour. The sites we saw would not have come up in a guide book and the facts and information he provided made the experience that much better. I learned so much about the area! I would recommend this tour to others!

We’ve booked this trip the last minute and it didn’t disappoint us! Lawrence the guide / driver was like a walking encyclopedia throwing very interesting facts as you go along your journey. Really enjoyed how he showed us the best spots and that relaxing classical music whilst traveling. We had ample time to take pictures and enjoy each site. 10/10!

Lawrence is a knowledgeable person when it comes to weather and places around Brighton. Though the weather was unpredictable but the trip was amazing.

Great tour!! We had an excellent time and learned so much about the area!! Highly recommend!!
