The hotel pick up was a nice provided service. It was very efficient. The tour itself was excellent. We had a very knowledgeable guide and were not rushed at the three stops. The only negative was we had lunch at a restaurant recommended by our guide in Canterbury which was not very good. The coach was new, modern and comfortable. This is our first time using Viator but it won't be our last!
Extremely knowledgeable tour guide who knew lots of information, not just about the sites we were visiting, but also about the history and culture of various regions of England. Tour guide knew the right balance of talking and allowing for questions and for quiet on the bus so people could rest if they wanted. The time allotted to each sight was perfect--again, a good balance of guided tour time and time to explore on one's own. The bus driver was also courteous and safety-conscious as he drove through the London traffic. Leeds Castle is beautiful, Canterbury Cathedral is striking, and we had just enough time in Dover to appreciate the white cliffs without wasting time. All in all, a highly positive experience that I'd recommend without hesitation!
That tour was amazing!!! Beautiful places, well done! Our tour guid was very entartaiment person, she is so lovely!
Our guide was fantastic and the tour was one of our favorite parts of our trip to the UK. Plenty of interesting information, but it never got boring or overwhelming. The amount of free time we were given in each location was perfect.
It was a beautiful day for a ride in the English countryside. How wonderful to be able to see the white cliffs of Dover, and across the English Channel to France. I loved Leeds Castle,- what a peaceful lovely setting.
Wonderful, easy day trip from London back to London. Leeds was interesting and we adored seeing Canterbury. Wanted to do more in Dover - like see the ancient walled village/monastery on the hill. The beach and hills impressive. A bonus was we got to see The Battle of Britain museum and that was awesome surprise. Hope everyone gets to finish the day there.
Excellent in all ways: very knowledgeable guide, excellent driver, comfortable coach. We also appreciated the hotel pick-up in the morning.
Wonderful day.. Beautiful sights and the proper amount of time.
Excellent tour guide! Canterbury Cathedral was certainly worth visiting, It was a wonderful tour.
The trip was great! Our guide, Monica was fabulous. Her knowledge about the sites made my head swim. Canterbury Castle is a must see, but adding in Leeds Castle and Dover is just icing on the cake. The recommended restaurant was very good and convenient, but there were also street vendors and market near the cathedral. I would definitely recommend this trip!
Holly our tour guide was fantastic she added some comedy to a day long trip
This was one of the best tours we have ever taken. We had a lovely coach ride to Leeds Castle where
we saw the beautiful grounds there and their beautiful white and black swans. The castle is lovely inside
and makes you feel really comfortable inside. After seeing Leeds we went on to see Canterbury Cathedral which has a lot of interesting history. From there we drove on to Dover and saw the white cliffs plus a new RAF museum to honor the pilots who flew during WWII and crossed over Dover on the way to battle. We had an excellent driver and tour guide. It's a tour you will always remember.
The trip, guide and destinations were first rate. Very informative and enjoyable. The bus was comfortable.
A beautiful tour,the Cathedral was stunning, the castle and grounds beautiful and to see Dover and the cliffs bought photos to life. The bonus of the Battle of Britain memorial was great, and very emotiinal to see where the bombings happened, how many locals were involved was very educational.
The trip was amazing, thanks to several factors: the weather was kind to us , beautiful and fun places and mainly thanks to the fascinating guide Rita from Portugal forgot to give her a tip and our conscience really working overtime
Thank to VIATOR for organize the trip so well
We have already suggested to a friend who travels to London today to take a trip with you

Excellent tour. Guide was very professional. The tour offered first class service with a much closer parking at Leeds castle that other tours, and ear bud commentary at Canterbury Cathedral.

My wife and I went on this trip and it was wonderful! The guide was very knowledgeable, friendly, and even fluent in Japanese it was impressive seeing a little British lady speaking Japanese. The trip is definitely worth it! You get to see a lot in a short period of time, but you don't feel rushed. Also, there were some traffic issues on our trip, and our guide and bus driver handled it really well. They were able to rearrange stuff so that we didn't miss out on anything. We were really pleased with our trip and plan on going on more with the local tour operator and Viator.

We enjoyed the trip a lot. Great to get out of London and see a bit of the countryside. Leeds is a beautiful castle and we had great weather. Canterbury Cathedral was equally beautiful. A photographer's dream at both locations. The lunch location recommended by our guide was a good choice. Our guide was helpful and knowledgeable. It was nice to see Dover but it's just a quick stop for a photo so be aware there's not a lot of time. It was raining for us which was OK. The Battle of Britain Memorial is what you actually stop at for about 20 minutes. It was raining but they have a great view and we could see France in the distance which was nice. The memorial is very nice though. The bus ride was comfortable.
Really enjoyed this tour, and Holly was an excellent guide!
Beautiful places. Expert guide! Comfortable bus. All well organized. Thanks
All three stops were beautiful and definitely worth the trip! We got a perfect amount of time at Leed's Castle, Canterbury, and the Battle of Britian War Memorial in Dover. The stop at the beach in Dover was brief, but the war memorial site provided a good opportunity for more pictures and views. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly.
Leslie was the best tour guide I could have asked for! She knew so very much about our stops and was helpful in helping us get back to our hotel with the tube strike going on.

This tour was excellent! Every stop was better than the last. I enjoyed every minute! And our guide, Kevin, was great! So friendly and knowledgable! We had enough time at every stop, and really got to explore! I loved this tour and would absolutely recommend it to anyone. Leeds castle is just incredible, and Canterbury Cathedral was magnificent. Dover was interesting because we didn't stop at the traditional Dover castle stop, but went farther along the coast and in my opinion, got a better view of the cliffs and France. Really amazing!
