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.
It was a nice experience. I would have preferred less time in Canterbury and more time at the cliffs thought. The viewing point wasn’t excellent, I wish we could had walked more. I suppose the view from the sea must be stunning.
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!
The tour was very informative, however sometimes it felt that we were running short of time. The fact that the guide had to give information in two languages probably influenced this.
