We took this tour on Sat Oct 19 to avoid the Sunday services. Our guide and driver, Sarah and Owen, were fantastic…Personable and informative and really enjoyed talking with them. The sights were as expected. The Dover Castle was impressive both the ancient as well as the WWII tunnels. The White Cliffs were OK. Not the best view with the time we had, but as expected when reservation made. To really see the cliffs, you need time to get down to the beach or take a boat ride across the channel. Do not take this tour for anything, but a cursory look at the cliffs. Finally, the Canterbury Cathedral was impressive despite the scaffolding. Unfortunately, we got to the Cathedral just in time for evensong, so unless planning for hour long evensong (which we chose not to) we could not see the main part of the altar and tower. HINDSIGHT says Canterbury first…not a complaint, just an observation. Weather was tolerable at all stops, so who knows. The tour met our expectations.
This is the perfect tour for people wanting to see the Seven Sisters - and not just for 10 min - but also see the countryside around Brighton. Lawrence (the tour guide) took us to amazing views of the country (ex: Devils Dyke, drawings on the hillside, etc) and multiple areas where you can see the Seven Sisters. The entire tour was so scenic/breathtaking. He knows so much about the area (I actually learned a lot). I really recommend it!
Fabulous scenery, terrific tour guide in Lawrence. The whole experience was one not to be missed. Lawrence took us to the best spots around the Seven Sisters and the South Downs. We had exactly the right amount of time at each stop to enjoy the scenery and to absorb the information Lawrence gave us about each spot. I would thoroughly recommend Lawrence and Brighton & Beyond Tours. Thanks for a wonderful day.
It was a fantastic day.Laurence the driver was very helpful and well informative about the places we visited.He knows his job very well.Although we were only 4 persons for this tour it was still done. It was a windy day but with a lot of sun and we took great time.
Amazing and wonderful! Our driver Ken and guide Giovanna were the best! Giovanna had answers for every question and when she didn’t, she researched during the drive and found the information. Just amazing!
