Great experience and...
Richard_G, Jun 2023
Great experience and guide was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. Gave us enough time at our stops to explore. Thank you!
Response from Host, Jun 2023
You were both very welcome Richard; Thank you again for your early booking and punctuality! The times we publish on our agent's advert allows for flexibility and for the group to feel fluidity rather than regimentalism through the day. I hope the rest of your trip and stay in London was enjoyable too...
Lovely way to spend 4 hours in Dover!
Terry_K, Jun 2023
Matt was prompt and gave us a great tour of Dover. What a beautiful place! Lovely views and quaint historic buildings, a chalk river and Battle of Britain memorial. Got us back to the ship in plenty of time.
Response from Host, Jun 2023
I'm glad I could share it with you Terry and to get feedback that you appreciate my communication throughout the booking process and well in advance of your trip. I'm aware Wifi on your Cruise Ships can be patchy and pricey so aim to inform all our guests of the full directions and meeting points ideally why you are still at home. I'm sure you got some great photos of our day together and fabulous memories to share... Matt
A great trip to White Cliffs of Dover
Ken, Jun 2023
Our half day tour was fantastic. It exceeded our expectations and recommend it to everyone. This was especially advantageous to us in having a private tour instead of being on a tour bus from our cruise ship.
Response from Host, Jun 2023
Thank you and the gang so much for coming Ken, it was indeed a fun day out. We prefer to tour with smaller and more intimate groups that we can help with a bespoke offer rather than 'Shoehorning sardines into a tin can' and showing you little more than the freeway! Hope you all wore your big smiles for the rest of your trip and to welcome you again, Matt...
You had me at White Cliffs
Thomas_D, Jun 2023
We had a great tour with Matt. We saw the White Cliffs of Dover and visited the WWII Flier's Memorial. Matt knows a lot about the environment around the Dover area and shared many interesting detail about it. The caulk information about the caulk rivers was really interesting.
Response from Host, Jun 2023
It was a great day with you too Thomas and thanks for sharing your knowledge and information that I can add to my repertoire to share with others. Keep flying and being looked after until, "We'll meet again, don't know where, don't know when..." Matt
Great Tour & Guide!
Dann_D, May 2023
Excellent tour! Matt was a great tour guide. He was informative & attentive. He has a vast knowledge of the area & sites. He kept things lively & moving along so that no one got bored. He made sure to interact with everyone on the tour. He offered us refreshments and snacks several times. The minivan was comfortable & roomy. I highly recommend Matt & this tour.
Response from Host, May 2023
Thanks so much Dann; very kind and you were most welcome good sir! I hope you were able to access those links and TV programs I sent and to be able to welcome you & Donna back with full hospitality as my guests again!
A great day with Matt!!
Jeff_B, Oct 2022
It was very nice to just have 6 of us on the tour that day. Matt provided us an excellent tour and very enjoyable day, sharing lots of information and allowing us plenty of time to take many pictures. I highly recommend this tour, and certainly hope you are fortunate enough to have Matt lead your tour!!
Response from Host, Oct 2022

It was my pleasure Howard; a great day exploring and sharing with a great bunch of people. I hope you had a joyous onward trip and safe journey home (via a few more Alehouses..!) Matt
Great experience
Thomas_S, May 2022
Angela was our guide and she did a great job. This was our first experience with Viator and they were very responsive to inquiries especially when we thought we might be late to our meeting site. I would not hesitate to book with them again.
Response from Host, May 2022
'Thank you for your input and making it such an enjoyable day,' Angela Dear Tom, Here at Britannia Tours we aim to respond to help our Guests as soon as possible. So glad you were not overly delayed at our border and that we were able to fully welcome you to Kent; 'The Garden of England'. Hoping to welcome you back, Matt :)
Great four hours !
Thomas_H, Apr 2022
Matt, was very accommodating and knowledgeable. We appreciated his suggestion for a late lunch at The White Horse.
Response from Host, May 2022
You are very welcome Tom and Queen Linda and thank you so much for the tip! Hope the rest of your trip goes smoothly and you stay warm and well looked after... Matt ;) Thanks also for posting this on! 'There’s more to Dover than the White Cliffs!! We just spent (4.28.22) a lovely half day Grand Tour of The White Cliffs of Dover with Matt James. -Our itinerary was as advertised and we appreciated Matt allowing us to adjust the time spent at each stop based on our interest. We took the train from and back to London and we were met at the train station. -We’ve always heard of the white cliffs of Dover and now that we’ve taken this tour we can return home (San Diego, CA) and share our experience. We learned so much and highly recommend you take this tour. -Matt even recommended a Pub we might enjoy- The White Horse Pub did not disappoint- loved the atmosphere and the food… Very Happy to have had the opportunity to have had this overview of Dover! Thank You…'
