Overview
More
Dorset Day Trips offer an exciting range of award-winning guided sightseeing day tours around Dorset & the New Forest, all from the comfort of our fantastic ‘70’s-style VW camper! With pick-ups in Poole or Bournemouth, the VW comfortably seats 7 passengers, making our trips really personal and fun. It also means we can fit anywhere a car can go, opening up places that even larger minibuses just cannot go!

Had a hectic week, but took on Snowy the last day! What a delightful trip to the Jurassic coast and extras. Thoroughly enjoyed Darren and his knowledge, and was comfortable and cool in the van. Highly recommend this to you voyagers out there.
