This was a handy way to get from our cruise port in Dover to London and get to make stops along the way.
The trip was as advertised. The pickup was easy, the guide Sandra was very good and the day went very well. Canterbury is an interesting town and having a bit of time to look around on our own was very nice. Leeds castle is delightful as you see changes from nearly a thousand years. Yet it is quite a livable place now. An unexpected treat was the falconry show. It was truly amazing to watch the birds in their demonstrations while at the same time seeing wild hawks going about their lives nearby. The gardens are special with the giant Gunnera plants. We could have spent days there but overall the time split between Canterbury and Leeds was reasonable. We were dropped off in downtown London around 5pm and all went well. Highly recommended.
The tour guide was excellent and the castle and cathedral were awesom
We had the most wonderful excursion with Yvonne tour guide and Paul driver, They both went above and beyond with the tour, taking us to little villages and towns, that we did not expect to see. Yvonne was very knowledgeable with the country side. We learned a lot. Paul was an excellent driver and managed driving the narrow roads very competently. Highly recommend these two!

Great way to get to Hotel in London. Coach was right on time. Enjoyed our guide very much. Plenty of time in Canterbury. Leeds Castle was very interesting and we enjoyed the grounds, Falconry and maize.
Would recommend this tour highly.
Our guide was full of facts that brought English history to life. Since we were a small group she went beyond the normal expectations. We had plenty of time to view and roam in Canterbury and Leeds Castle. Also the bus ride back to our Heathrow hotel was smooth.
We are very pleased with the tour. From being picked up at the cruise port to being delivered to our hotel, both the guide and bus driver were helpful and courteous. Having the guide show us around in Canterbury and Leeds then give us time to explore on our own was perfect. We would highly recommend the tour and will book with Viator In the future.
I had been to Canterbury two times before but having the guide start us out gave me something new. Loved Leeds castle especially the gardens and black swans. What a nice way to come back to the hotel after the cruise!

Excellent tour nice and relaxed our guide OZ was excellent , great knowledge
We booked this tour from Dover when our cruise ship arrived in port. Coach was there to collect us as we came thru customs. Had a wonderful experience. Just loved Canterbury and if we go back to England would like to stay in this charming town. At Leeds Castle there was a jolsting event on and lots of families having a great time. The castle was set on beautiful parkland and very interesting. A great way to fill in your day before checking into our London accommodation in the arvo
We disembarked Crystal Serenity at 7:00, and were met at 7:45 by tour bus rep. But we then waited for 1 hour, for another couple to show up. They had already taken a cab to London! Otherwise, we enjoyed the trip. Walk through Canterbury was fun, and the Cathedral there was magnificent!
Leeds Castle was lovely, but could have used more time there. Guide was knowledgeable and informative! Delivered direct to our London hotel. Good tour overall, and another option to London!
Our guide was very informative. Leeds castle was really beautiful. Quite an extensive look at all the main attractions in London, by bus as people were being dropped off at hotels and the airport.
Was great but had trouble finding the person to pick us up we had a name of vitor to be picking us up and she had another name I look at her sign and walked away 30 mins latter I called and hduring the phone call I figured out she was who we need happened to others too trip was great
There was some confusion about the start time of the excursion. Variuos people booked through different agents and were given different information which had some of us waiting almost an hour for the coach to arrive. Once we got started, the tour was fine. Our guide Andrew was knowledgeable and blended history with local color in an entertaining fashion. The company separated our group I to two coaches following our visit to Leeds Castle, saving hours of coach time for those ending at Heathros hotels. Great service.
Well worth the money, but a bit disorganized. Too much time in Canterbury, and not enough time at Leeds Castle.
The sights, tour and guide were outstanding. The logistics were very poor. We were delayed for over an hour getting started waiting for a passenger who never arrived. The lost time was taken from each of our stops, reducing the enjoyment at Canterbury and Leeds Castle. When we arrived in London, all passengers had to wait another hour while waiting for a van to take some of us to our hotel. The guide was very knowledgeable , provided a nice narrative as we traveled and freely answered all questions.
The intinery was good and so did the guide. The only bad thing about this tour was the delay of departure of 1.5 hours due to waiting of 2 guests. As a result we lost 1.5 hours of sightseeing time at Canterbury and Leeds castle and became very rush. Every guest should be reminded to use expedite disembarkation from the cruise ship in order not to keep other guests waiting.
was poor set up.was hour and half late,stood on pier in cold wind,very sorry operation,had to change bus at leeds castle and bus was lost and very negative postion, need to find someone eles to work with,
