We took this tour on Sat Oct 19 to avoid the Sunday services. Our guide and driver, Sarah and Owen, were fantastic…Personable and informative and really enjoyed talking with them. The sights were as expected. The Dover Castle was impressive both the ancient as well as the WWII tunnels. The White Cliffs were OK. Not the best view with the time we had, but as expected when reservation made. To really see the cliffs, you need time to get down to the beach or take a boat ride across the channel. Do not take this tour for anything, but a cursory look at the cliffs. Finally, the Canterbury Cathedral was impressive despite the scaffolding. Unfortunately, we got to the Cathedral just in time for evensong, so unless planning for hour long evensong (which we chose not to) we could not see the main part of the altar and tower. HINDSIGHT says Canterbury first…not a complaint, just an observation. Weather was tolerable at all stops, so who knows. The tour met our expectations.
After reaching the meeting point, I found the pickup to be smooth and there were adequate seats to sit socially distanced from each other so that was a relief. We stopped at Canterbury around 10.30 and started with a walk to the city center. The cathedral was lovely and there was enough time to have a lunch. Around 2 we reached the Dover castle, we had plenty of time there as well. We reached the white cliff around 4.30 and by 5 we started our journey back. I was entertained by a bonus song sang by Clive, our driver. Overall a good trip. I wouldn't do it any differently.
Amazing and wonderful! Our driver Ken and guide Giovanna were the best! Giovanna had answers for every question and when she didn’t, she researched during the drive and found the information. Just amazing!
The tour guide was amazing! As when we went to the white cliffs I slipped and got all muddy, but she took the time to make sure I got all cleared up and proper. Overall I was very happy with my trip!
Excellent, efficient service from Rachael and Richard. Took great care of us from the hotel to Stonehenge to the cruise terminal. Highly recommended!
