    Buying tickets through Get Your Guide was an extremely straight forward process. Tickets were no more expensive than buying direct from the venue, and we had no problems using the electronic tickets to gain access. Dover Castle is an incredible day out; from the castle itself (the view from the roof is outstanding), to the guided tour through the tunnels used in WWII. Very highly recommend.

    Booking was easy, well worth the money. Well run, very organised and all staff and volunteers were knowledgeable and friendly. The food was good and priced as you would expect for an attraction. Would definitely visit again with the children. We joined English heritage on the day and paid the same price for 2 adults for a family ticket. We took advantage of this and visited near by Deal castle and Walmer Castle on the same day also English Heritage, making the most of our membership whilst we was visiting.

    The history represented in Dover Castle is well presented and easy to understand. The tour guides and staff were friendly and helpful. The site itself is beautiful and gives any visitor a good taste of English history. As an American visitor, I highly recommend you come see this wonderful place, but give yourself time for a thorough tour.
