It was the first time that I used Golden Tours and it was a very nice experience ,surely I visit London again I select another tour.
This well organized tour allows sufficient time at each stop to actually see and experience the venue. Unfortunately Greenwich and the river tour visits were after dark due to the end of daylight savings time but that was my bad, not theirs. In any event, it was interesting to see Greenwich and the city at night. Leeds was jaw dropping in its setting and emphasis on history while Dover was jaw dropping for the natural beauty. Our guide added a lot to the experience with her in-depth knowledge and quick wit. As for the free lunch, the sandwich is worth every penny you paid for it but the crisps are good. If you are a cat lover be certain to look for Tilly the current cat of Canterbury Cathedral who is both lovely and quite friendly.

Love Love Love Leeds Castle. Want to live there. Canterbury was Amazing. Never dreamed I would ever see the White Cliffs of Dover, yet I did. Greenwich was nice, and the River trip was a perfect ending to a wonderful day.

LEEDS CASTLE - I want to live there. Beautiful. Canterbury was amazing. Dover was Nice. Greenwich was a bit rushed as we had some traffic issues, nothing the wonderful driver and guide can do to control that - the return by river is a nice ending.
This was awesome! We enjoyed the travel thru the country side. We didn't get to visit Dover, it was raining. The Leeds Castle was unbelievable! A must do when visiting London!
Leeds Castle was beautiful, and we got there as soon as it opened so that meant there were barely any people/crowds around, so we got lovely photos and had good access to the information. The bus was comfy and guide did a fantastic job. Rest of stops were nice also, finished with a boat ride back to Westminster.
This one was my favorite tour of all the ones we booked! We had a bus pick us up from a nearby hotel and take us to the bus station. Simon was our tour guide and he was fabulous! The lunch was horrible, so bring your own sandwich if you can help it. We had time to eat at a restaurant in Canterbury. The River Cruise was really not that great. It is the rest of it that you will love the most!
We had an excellent guide with a good amount of time at each stop. My only critique would be the subway sandwich which appeared to only have lettuce in it. Really.. it was so bad and only slightly better than nothing. We loved Leeds Castle -- it was so beautiful and we were blessed with sunny spring weather. The Thames cruise was a nice ending and the entire tour was a good value.
This was a wonderful tour. The weather was perfect and our guide was courteous and knowledgeable. Couldn't have been a better day. Leeds Castle is definitely one of the most beautiful castles to see in person. We had more then enough time to explore all the stops. It helped that everyone was mindful of the schedule and returned to the coach on time. The cruise is actually more of ferry with scheduled stops but you get a great view of the waterline back to central London.
This tour was fantastic! Each site was beautiful and interesting and we were given an ample amount of time to explore. I fully enjoyed myself on this tour. My only comment is that the river cruise is actually more of a shuttle-by-boat back to London. Regardless, it was great.
