Booked this based on the excellent reviews and was not disappointed. The day started with us not finding the departure site by the time the tour was set to leave. Fortunately, our guide and driver, Scott, determined where we were enroute and picked us there. This was great service since we were already ten minutes late. Scott, by the way, is a blast. Funny, but very knowledgeable about the areas we visited. Our group included two adults and four teens. Other members of the tour group included a married couple and two other young couples. Scott kept everyone entertained throughout the trip. One great benefit of this minibus tour was that Scott asked about our interests and accommodated the needs of the small group. A few highlights were lunch in a 500 yr-old pub, Canterbury Cathedral's choir practice during our visit and the excellent weather viewing the white cliffs of Dover. Tour was excellent throughout. If you ever read this review, thanks, Scott and England Experiences.
Loved this tour. I saw many posts saying you can not see the cliffs, but you most certainly can see them. We went for a wonderful walk along the cliffs and really enjoyed it. Leeds castle was also quite nice and we enjoyed Cantebury as well. Our tour guide was wonderful and a lot of fun. I highly recommend this.
Really enjoyed this tour. Our guide Rob was very knowledgeable and also very helpful with all our needs. I enjoyed the castle Particularly. Would recommend to those wanting to see the sights a way from London.
I enjoyed exploring these sights with my hubby and and our friends. Plenty of time was allotted for each site — even though we came upon a main road closure due to a major accident. Scott’s familiarity with the back roads and amazing skill brought us around it via beautiful back, country roads.
The van was comfortable and and clean. Scott made sure he knew everyone’s name and engaged everyone during the day. His narration included our time through London as well.
The weather was perfect and I still don’t know how he made THAT happen.
The sites were all top notch. A great variety of history, scenery, and gardens!
Our tour was great. Paul was an awesome tour guide. We had a group of 9, so we received a lot of attention. The coach was very comfortable. All of the destinations were great. The only down side of the tour, is there is not really anywhere to eat for lunch on the tour, so make sure to bring lots of snacks. It would have been nice to have a longer stop in Canterbury in order to eat something. All in all, this is a great tour if you are looking to see things outside of London without renting a car.
Our driver/guide, Paul was friendly, entertaining and knowledgeable, particularly about Canterbury. We had not heard about Leeds Castle before this trip, so it was a wonderful bonus. The view of the white cliffs of Dover is not extensive from the land you would need to view it from a boat to fully appreciate it. However, it was as good as it could be. Canterbury was all we expected and more! Paul's knowledge and commentary helped a huge amount in our appreciation and enjoyment of the town of Canterbury in the time available. The cathedral is astounding the town is even better!
Absolutely loved how personalized this tour was. We were in a small group, so we got individual attention that you simply just can't get in a large tour bus. Would definitely recommend this experience!
This tour was amazing. Our guide, Paul was very knowledgeable and fun to talk with. Canterbury was a fun place to roam around the shops in the little downtown area. The architecture of the buildings was beautiful. The Cliffs of Dover had to be one of the most amazing sites I have ever seen. I could have stayed there all day just absorbing the view. Walking up to Leeds Castle had several picture moments. The grounds were incredible. If I lagged behind, Paul made sure to come back to me and fill me in on any details of the view. My family and I happened to be the only people on the tour on the day we chose, so we got to spend more time at whichever spot we chose. I would do this tour over again if I get the chance to return to England.
