James_K, Sept 2023
Paula is a great tour guide. Canterbury Cathedral is stunning, and Leeds Castle is beautiful. Bonus in getting to see the white cliffs of Dover.
Peaceful, pleasant day
Jennifer_F, Sept 2023
Enough time to absorb the sites and enjoy the day. Paulie was very helpful throughout the tour with personalized recommendations at the end.
Great Tour
Helen_D, Aug 2023
This was a very nice tour and our tour guide, Dane, did a great job telling us stories and giving us interesting facts. My only regret is that we didn’t get more time in Canterbury.
Excellent trip

Our guide Pablo and driver were fantastic and make the journey smooth and comfortable. Excellent trip.
Tour guide left us
Renae_F, Aug 2023
Leeds Castle and the gardens was beautiful!! Absolutely breathtaking!! We were having a fantastic time until our tour guide LEFT our group at the docks at the end of our trip . He left on a boat with 75% of the group stranded. The last boat ride was booked , so we all had to catch Ubers back to our hotel (at our cost). We called the number on our bracelets, but no help offered. Really disappointing bc Leeds Castle is amazing.
Fabulous guide, and bus driver
Susynasser, Aug 2023
Dan and Jim were fantastic. Super helpful even outside of expected tour. Will definitely do this again!
We will not do that again.
Brigitte_R, Aug 2023
We started on time, Grace is a good tour guide and Kollie is an excellent driver. We saw all the beautiful places but were constantly in a hurry. Grace informed us during the ride, about the duration of the stay and the desired onward journey, which lasted from 20 to 35 minutes, the lunch stop with time to visit the cathedral and lunch just 1 hour and 50 minutendauerte. We were back for it an hour earlier than planned. Too bad about the money. The information about the sights we would have also found on the Internet. We were there and somehow not.
Great day trip
64Smithy, Aug 2023
Fantastic trip, stops at Leeds Castle, Baattle of Britain Memorial Dover and Canterbury Cathedral were all great and not rushed. Ferry trip from Greenwich on the Uber Boat was a bit slow. Our tour guide Danxia was really well organised and looked after everybody all day. Driver Marius drove us around safely all day. Highly recommended trip.
Canceled and not notified
Ellen_M, Aug 2023
The tour was canceled and we were not notified until we got to the Coach station. We were then pressured to chose an "alternate tour" none of which were similar.
Nice way to spend a rainy day.
Steven_O, Aug 2023
We went on a very rainy day. Everything was still great, except the view of the cliffs was somewhat hazy. Great guide!
Leeds Castle

Terrific excursion, well worth the price!!
Brian_M, Aug 2023
Pauly was an awesome tour guide. Leeds Castle was gorgeous, well worth the trip! Canterbury Cathedral was old and massive, but we got there during a university graduation, so we couldn't visit some areas. Dover was fairly brief, but the cruise back to London on the Thames was fun. This excursion was well worth the price!!
Great Sights
Lauren_B, July 2023
Leeds castle was beautiful! And we were able to catch Dover on a good day where we could see France across the water! The end of the day wasn't so much of a boat tour as it was a water taxi, but it was still a nice different way to view the city.

Maureen_C, July 2023
We were very disappointed that we were not able to visit the Cliffs of Dover. The tour took us to the harbour in Dover but that did not make up for missing the cliffs. We did enjoy Leeds Castle and Canterbury Cathedral.

We are not able to do Greenwich river boat due to guide negligence. We reach there before time at the pick up point and he left us and went with other passengers. Refund is also not given after request

Glenn_H, July 2023
Unfortunately having missed the boat . I was trying to help out 2 apprentice tour guides who didn’t have bracelets for boat and tell the woman in charge of boat that they were on our tour. Our head tour person had gone ahead and was unaware that she had left people behind.
Super interesting Tour
Catherine_P, June 2023
Driver: Malcolm and your guid: Dolly Dolly was a walking history book. So full of knowledge and extremely helpful throughout the tour, especially towards the end when I had to catch the train. 1st stop - Leeds Castle - approx 2 hour drive from London. Beautiful castle inside and out. Acres and acres of property with amazing birds (wildlife) and beautiful music sung by them. Very peaceful place. 2nd stop - War memorial - very touching place to visit. Quite a lot of fog but it seemed to lift as we walked towards the cliffs of Dover, which was great. Below the cliffs, people were camping and sitting on the beach. Very memorable sight to see. The White Cliffs of Dover are become green due to the vegetation being planted. The rocks are made of lime stone and I can only assume they are planting vegetation to stop the erosion. 3rd stop - Canterbury Cathedral - beautiful and huge cathedral inside and out. Amazing how the work was performed centuries ago with no use of the machinery and tools we have today. Definitely a history tour which was extremely interesting.
