We were worried about the length of this tour, approx. 10 hours, but the day flew by and our guide was fabulous! Leads Castle was nothing like any of the other castles, very much like a home I would live in. The Cliffs of Dover were magnificent although we weren't thrilled with the food at the pub and it was expensive 20 per meal for what was given. Canterbury Cathedral was well worth the trip, would have liked to have seen something in Greenwich other than the bus tour and the cruise on the River Thames was delightful indoors with coffee/tea and scones! All in all, a wonderful day. We even exchanged e-mail addresses with the tour guide.
This tour was excellent. The guide thoroughly knew the history, geography and background of all the tour stops and he communicated this very well. We even made two unscheduled stops, the Battle of Britain Memorial and the beach at Dover. This tour could be improved by making it a few hours longer so more time could be spent at Leeds Castle, Canterbury and Greenwich.
My husband and I had a great time on this trip. The tour guide was genial, funny, and knowledgeable. The bus ride was comfortable and smooth. And I felt we spend a good amount of time at each location.
This tour concentrates on Leeds Castle and Canterbury Cathedral. You drive past Dover Castle and have lunch at a quaint lighthouse pub that over looks the White Cliffs. You get about a photo opportunity at the cliffs and then you're taken on to the next stop.
I will say I was a bit disappointed about our time in Greenwich. The Cutty Sark was being renovated, so we had no access to it. And our tour guide didn't take us to the actual Prime Meridian. But at the same time, it was the end of the day, and we were a bit tired from all the traveling.
The boat ride made up for the Greenwich mishap, though. We saw the Globe Theatre and the Mayflower Pub - the place of the Pilgrims' mooring of the Mayflower.
One tip, though. If you want to be picked up from your hotel, make sure you call the vendor at least 24 hours in advance - or be prepared to get to Victoria Coach Station on time. At the end of the day, you get dropped off at Tower Hill.
The tour guide was wonderful! The private tour was excellent -- done very well -- and it's nice to walk through without the crowds. Canterbury was a wonderful place to visit -- had plenty of time to eat, shop and see the Abbey.
The private viewing of Leeds Castle was wonderful and we got to see everything without a big crowd. Our guide was very informative, she took us through the streets of Cantebury pointed out things of interest and made restaurant suggestions for lunch. The river cruise was beautiful. We didn't have the sparkling wine and scones because the regular boat was out of order but we had a great time anyway. Dark came while we were on the cruise and views were great.
This tour was totally worth the money. Our tour guide was very informative and also had a great sense of humor. I would recommend this tour to anyone.
We loved it! The tour was well organized. We saw a lot in one day, and there was a nice variety of places to see. We really felt we got a taste of England in a day - a very full day.
We had a fantastic time on this tour! Our guide was funny, entertaining, and very knowledgeable. He was interesting to listen to and most helpful. Leeds Castle lives up to its reputation, and although I wish we had more time there, we had a great experience. The cruise was fun, and it was nice to drink tea while riding in the boat. I highly recommend this tour.
We had a great time! The tour guide was awesome and gave lots of info about London and all along the route to the various locations. Leeds is a beautiful place, and it was really nice to enjoy the castle before the crowd. The food at the lighthouse was great. Dover and Canterbury were incredible. It was all topped off with the cruise - what a way to experience London!
My father and I had a great time on this tour, and the weather was fantastic as well. Our tour guide was especially great - he was very welcoming, funny, and overflowing with information, and he handled a difficult situation quite smoothly. I thought the price was a bit high at first, but it was definitely worth it by the end.
We had a wonderful trip. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and delightful.
Our guide was excellent. I wish we had a little more time in Canterbury. The lunch at the Light House Inn, under new management was GREAT! Our guide called in advance and everything was ready when we arrived, very little time was wasted. The food was delicious. The boat tour on the Thames River was a perfect way to end an enjoyable day. This was an absolutely fantastic trip and I would recommend it to anyone going to England.
We took this tour and ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT!!! The Leeds Castle, Dover, Canterbury, Greenwich and Thames River Cruise was wonderful. Leeds castle was beautiful. It was great arriving before the public. Our guide did an excellent job of keeping the group on task and called ahead to make sure lunch was ready when we arrived. The Lighthouse Inn provided a delicious lunch. The fish and chips were excellent. The Thames River cruise was a wonderful way to end the day. The Cutty Sark was not available to see because of repairs (no great loss). I do wish we had a little more time to spend in Cantebury.
We had an excellent guide and friendly driver. The tour was very interesting.
This was a great trip. The best part for us was having lunch high atop the white cliffs of Dover!
Great informative guide. Lovely castle. Would have liked a bit more time to look at the castle but we had to keep moving.
Really enjoyable day and run very professionally - everything I hoped for
This was a most enjoyable day with varied interests. Leeds Castle was a joy and great to learn that it is still used for heads of Govt meetings.
English speaking guide was knowledgable, helpful and interesting. Coach was comfortable. Venues were what we expected and we were not disappointed in any way. Thoroughly enjoyed the trip. Was worth doing.
The tour was lovely. Educated guide and plenty of time in Canterbury. I would have traded some of the time in Canterbury for a bit more time at Leeds Castle, that part felt rushed. But the tour was a highlight of our trip.
Leeds Castle is just beautiful and I'm very glad we chose this tour. My only regret is that we didn't have enough time at Leeds. The private tour of the castle was informative and it was nice to view the castle before the rest of the crowds. There was plenty of time to see the interior of the castle, but we would have liked to spend more time walking the grounds and taking in the scenery. This tour included time at Dover, and I think we would have easily given up that part of the trip in order to maximize the time we spent at Leeds. We had 2 hours at Canterbury, which gave us 1 hour in the Cathedral and 1 hour for lunch. Canterbury was a quaint area and we could have spent more time walking around the shops. The stop in Greenwich was "eh" and we could have done without it. However it did provide us an opportunity to ride the water taxi back to our hotel area, rather than riding the bus all the way back. This tour company does not allow food on their bus. That was one down side to this tour.
