Leeds Castle, Canterbury Cathedral and Dover

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

This was a very nice tour into the English countryside. As with all tours, the time spent in each place was too short, but adequate for seeing the sights. There was a ceremony going on at Canterbury Cathedral so we couldn't see the Nave, but we had access to the Crypt and the Cathedral was beautiful. We got to hear the organ. Leeds Castle was very pretty, but the audio guide was a complete waste of time and money. In fact, the guide at the entrance to the castle wouldn't allow us to go the way of the audio tour and it was hard to catch up with it as we went through the castle. The lunch we had in Canterbury was excellent. The stop at Dover was short, but plenty of time to get some good pictures of the cliff. Our guide, Kevin, was very nice and enthusiastic. We enjoyed his British sense of humor. This tour was definitely worth the time and money.

Eiffel Tower, Seine River Cruise and Paris Illuminations Night Tour

Paris, France

My Rating
2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better

My Review

This tour started too early to see most of the illuminations. The bus ride around the city was very interesting and gave us an opportunity to see some nice sights. Unfortunately, it was raining during the boat ride, so seeing anything from the boat was pretty impossible. The trip up the Eiffel Tower was fine, but again the rain and cold made it pretty miserable. At least our hotel was close to the Eiffel Tower and we were able to leave the tour at that point and get something to eat and go straight back to our hotel.

My Review

This tour was recommended to us by a guide on our previous day's tour and it was totally worth it! The gardens were in full bloom and absolutely stunning. The rain held off until we boarded the bus to go back to Paris. My sister and I could have spent several more hours in this place. We didn't get to see everything because the time there was too short, but what we did see was spectacular. Our guide, Isabella, was very nice and informative. This is well worth the money when the gardens are in bloom.

My Review

There were only three other guests with my sister and me on this tour and it was lovely. Our guide had a very heavy French accent and was difficult to understand at times, but he was very nice and did the best he could to answer our questions. There were two other guides with him who were in training and they were also very friendly. The pick up at our hotel was really convenient and the van was comfortable. We had plenty of time to see the Cathedral at Chartres and the stained glass museum. The place we stopped for lunch was fabulous! The whole day was just very relaxing and fun. I would definitely recommend this tour if you want a small group experience.
