The trip was organized very well. I enjoyed the Dover Castle, the white cliffs of Dover, the Canterbury Cathedral and the 45-minutes walking tour in the old Canterbury organized by our amazing tour guide Sophie. I highly recommend this tour!

The Cliffs were a little underwhelming actually but it was a gorgeous day so a pleasant stop, The Dover Castle and Canterbury Cathedral are highly recommended. My son said it was his favorite day of our vacation.

It was very interesting and well organized. Our guide was very nice and told a lot of interesting things. I especially appreciated his excellent language. I would definitely recommend this tour

Adam was a great tour guide and showed us a hidden spot with a view of The Seven Sisters. Took some great pictures. Simply had a lovely day and learned a lot!
