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.
It was a great day. Our guide took care of us and made sure we all got to see what we needed. Canterbury is lovely. The cathedral is beautiful. The cliffs are magnificent. You might want to book on any day but Sunday. The trip was great but its scheduled around the cathedral hours in Sunday so you arrive at Dover castle later in the day when it’s very busy so you can’t do the secret war tunnels and much more because of the line up.
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!
The tour guide was amazing! As when we went to the white cliffs I slipped and got all muddy, but she took the time to make sure I got all cleared up and proper. Overall I was very happy with my trip!
Excellent, efficient service from Rachael and Richard. Took great care of us from the hotel to Stonehenge to the cruise terminal. Highly recommended!
