On a long weekend with my teenage daughter we booked this day trip before travelling to Brighton (12/8/22) Andrew was very informative with his history knowledge from the very start of the tour, full of lots of interesting facts all the way. The needles was spectacular and there was plenty of time to visit each attraction (we didn’t get off the chair lift at the bottom as queues were long and tide was in anyway/ a lady on coach trip mentioned she went on boat trip which she thoroughly enjoyed). Andrew and Rob (driver) were both very welcoming and friendly. Loved Andrews bing bongs and great sense of humour :) Having never taken a coach tour before we knew by the end of the day we had to do more and hopefully find a local coach company, who will have big boots to fill after this trip!

The tour lived up to expectations. The guide was well informed and presented information in a relevant and engaging way. The tour was well devised with just the right amount of time spent at the major spots. Would definitely recommend the tour to others. For me the highlight was the ferry crossing - seeing so many boats and ships was unreal.
