Blenheim Palace Tour and The Cotswolds Custom Day Trip from London

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Our guide Sheila and our driver John were excellent. They were very knowledgeable and took great care of us from start to finish. The weather was gloriously beautiful on a Sunday in June, and all the locals were out enjoying it with us and with their children and dogs. The three Cotswold villages that we visited were picture perfect, and lunch at the Mermaid pub was wonderful. Blenheim was simply breathtaking--right up there with the Taj Mahal.

Leeds Castle Private Viewing, Canterbury and Greenwich Day Trip from London

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Leeds Castle has an unique beauty all its own. Visiting it was one of the highlights of our visit to England. Our guided tour of the rooms was excellent, and we had some time to stroll the grounds and absorb some of the beauty of the castle's wonderful setting. Our visit to Dover beach and to the new Battle of Britain memorial on top of the cliffs was memorable. Canterbury Cathedral almost defies description. The Canterbury Choral Society was rehearsing Beethoven's Missa Solemnis while were there, and the music filled the vastness of the building. You could almost see the ghosts of the past 1400 years from Chaucer to Becket to Elizabeth I to Elizabeth II. Greenwich was an entirely different sort of experience but equally memorable in its own way. Huge crowds of Londoners were out on this Sunday afternoon enjoying and celebrating the glorious June weather. The cruise back up the Thames was a nice way to finish the day. It would, however, have been nicer to have had an open deck vessel rather then the closed deck ferry.
