    Fantastic day out with Danny who took us to two different vineyards where we learnt about the wine making process and were talked through tastings of still and sparkling wines. Lunch was at High Weald dairy, a delicious cheese and charcuterie board followed by a tour and explanation of the cheese making process. Everyone we met was informative and passionate about their craft, Can thoroughly recommend this day out but it would also make a fabulous gift for friends or family.

    We joined the tour mainly for the Seven Sisters cliff. Danny, our guide and driver, brought us to the spots where we had amazing view of the cliff! He is very happy to tell us the local culture, and everything we asked. The local restaurant for lunch made awesome food, as well as the local producers of cider and cheese! We enjoyed our day so much, thanks Danny!

    Un posto bellissimo immerso nella natura. Si arriva alle scogliere tramite vari percorsi nella campagna inglese, bellissima! Le scogliere a strapiombo sul mare sono uno spettacolo, con la roccia bianca e l'erba verde, emozionante!
