What people are saying about West Sussex

We just finished our guided tour to the seven sisters and it was everything we wanted and more! The tour guide Lawrence was so funny and friendly. He shared a lot of knowledge with us. Expect to do some walking. Although you are driven around to the sites my husband and I racked up 10k steps each. The tour was supposed to end at the train station but Lawrence offered to take people to Brighton Pier if you wanted which he didn’t have to do. I would recommend this company for any your.

The experience was very remarkable! Our guide was very informative about all the legends and facts of each places we visited plus the scenery was so fascinating. The mini hikes and trail was all worth it because of the scenic views we have seen.

Our 2nd time on this wonderful trip. Just as good as first time around. A very informative and well presented tour of the South downs. Very comfortable in the bus even though it was full.

Excellent tour with a variety of interesting stops and extraordinary scenery. Lawrence was knowledgeable, amusing, and considerate. Highly recommend!

Fantastic tour! Loved our guide and the sights were amazing. Definitely recommend!
