Fantastic time I would do this tour again. I had no idea that Dover had a Castle.

This tour was wonderful! The tour guide was very sweet and Dover was gorgeous! We got very lucky to go on a day with nice weather. Try to plan your trip on a dry day if you can, but Dover is beautiful nonetheless.

Great bus ride we appreciated the information Les and Manon gave us. It was more relaxed than other trips we took. We had enough time for these 3 visits: Cliffs of Dover, Dover Castle and Canterbury.

I was very excited to visit Canterbury Cathedral and it lived up to its billing. As a Cathedral it is a near equal of Westminster Abby but not as crowded. The town of Canterbury was a very enjoyable town to visit and find lunch. Walking the path over the White Cliffs of Dover was fun despite some rain. What surprised me was how cool Dover Castle was! The castle looks just like castle should! I didn't know that there are major tunnels beneath the castle and these were used by the British military in WWII. We took the tunnel tour of the RAF hospital and it was seriously cool!

Wonderful! We left in the rain, had a stop on the way to Dover, and toured Dover picking up our guide. We visited the the Dover Castle and had ample time to explore the grounds and tour the WWII tunnels. We then bus briefly to the White Cliffs and walked to a wonderful spot to photograph and explore. From there we spent the rest of the day in Canterbury shopping, having tea, and exploring. A very good experience as all the Viator excisions have been and I would not hesitate to book with them again. The only way it could have been better was to be picked up at our hotel we had a ten minute walk to the pick-up point. But I would do the trip again. Well done!

Well organised trip with a group of around 15 friendly people.
I loved Dover Castle, it's so much to do there that we had to choose between visiting the medieval part with the royal appartments and regiment museum and a guided tour of the tunnels from WW2. I chose the first option and was very happy with my choice. Afterwards, we went to the White Cliffs for a spectacular view of the sea and France. The last stop was in Canterbury, where we visited the cathedral. As I had already seen it before, I spent little time there, instead opting to go to Beaney Gallery free and the Heritage museum free with National Art pass, where I found out a lot of things about the history of the town and the famous people living there.
The weather was sunny in Dover and cloudy in Canterbury.
Lunch was not included, we had something quickly while visiting.
The guide and the driver were very nice and polite. The guide joined and left us in Dover.
The entraces to Dover Castle and Canterbury Cathedral were included in the price of the trip.
All in all, it was a great day trip, and I would strongly recommend it to anyone interested in these locations.

The tour started late but it was due to heavy traffic and did not affect the time we were given at both sites.. Once started all went smoothly. The guide was very knowledgeable about Canterbury and Dover Castle. First stop was the Dover Castle, which was my main reason for taking this tour. Great history there and enough time to see everything. Next we visited the White Cliffs of Dover and was able to take some spectacular pictures. We were given plenty of time to explore the Cathedral and the city of Canterbury. Great trip and highly recommended.

Excellent tour overall ....... Brendan and Manon were top notch. Manon was very knowledgeable of both Canterbury and Dover as well as having a great sense of humour. Well worth the money.

Multiple pick up points, and friendly and informative guide, Manon. Could have used more time to visit Canterbury proper, but knew the times going in. Very windy at the cliffs, so you may need a jacket. Dover Castle is huge so there will be quite a bit of walking. The cathedral is amazing and there is more of it than meets the eye when you first enter, not to mention the surrounding grounds.
