What people are saying about West Sussex

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.

Evans and Evans unfortunately had to cancel my original trip due to lack of bookings but set me up with another trip with no extra charge, and I had an even more amazing time! Debbie, the tour guide, was so knowledgeable, personable, and amazing throughout the entire trip! The company was fantastic, buses were comfortable, and it was an amazing way to get out of London and see a different part of England. 10/10

The trip was amazingly informative. Lawrence provided a lot of information regarding the history of the region, and his amazing sense of humour was a great bonus! The views were stunning. We’ve seen the Three Sisters from different looking points, the best being the Hope Gap (not many tourists know about it). The van was cleaned and sanitised, which made the trip safe and pleasant.

Well worth the money. The guide was amazing and the journey beautiful. I’d give it a 10/10.

Great experience the tour guide Lawrence was awesome
