As you leave London, pass through Maritime Greenwich: a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and home to the Royal Naval College, Old Royal Observatory, and the site of the Prime Meridian. Your first destination is the 12th-century Leeds Castle in Kent, where you are guaranteed entrance. Surrounded by a scenic moat, the historical castle was used by monarchs including King Henry VIII. The journey continues to Canterbury, a scenic British city with thousands of years of history. It’s also home to the UNESCO-listed Canterbury Cathedral: the seat of the archbishop of Canterbury, and a soaring feat of Gothic architecture. Enjoy a tour of this exceptional landmark. Then, travel to the White Cliffs of Dover, which occupy an important place in British history, and offer views of the English Channel. The full-day tour ends when you board your coach and return to Victoria Coach Station.

The tour was absolutely amazing. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable, well spoken, and considerate. We had a traffic jam on the way to Leeds Castle and she went and visited every couple on the bus to check on them!

The tour itself was great and would say it is fantastic for couples. I'm not sure I'd recommend this tour for couples with babies or kids who are hard to control. Leeds Castle has a lot of items that could be knocked over, and the time in the bus long.

This tour was excellent! A wonderful opportunity to see historic sites in the beautiful countryside in southern England. Leeds Castle was especially lovely! The history of Canterbury Cathedral was very interesting to hear, and although a bit chilly on the day we visited the Cliffs of Dover was beautiful and just amazing to see. The tour guide was outstanding...very knowledgeable and went out of her way to ensure everyone on the tour had what they needed. There were a few issues with the tour bus itself in that the air conditioning was turned up so high that it felt like sitting in a refrigerator. That said, the bus driver was very kind and responsive in making adjustments upon request. The one area of concern that I did have was that it appeared that there was no mention of a mask requirement despite the notation of the requirement on the reservation at the time of booking. There were at least two of us on the bus who noted that multiple people were coughing and sneezing in different areas of the bus throughout the trip. Although COVID protocols have relaxed some, my thought is that those who appear to be sick or contagious should be encouraged to wear a mask or skip the tour. Whether COVID or something else, I don't want to get sick while on vacation 4000 miles from home. Many on the bus chose to wear a mask, and I'm glad that I did. Aside from that this was a great experience, and I would recommend this tour.

What a fantastic tour! This should be high in your list of tours if you planning on booking one. Our tour guide Kevin was not only extremely knowledgeable but engaging and humorous. He made it a point to speak with each group on the bus to personalize the tour as best as possible. His stoytelling of historical events as we journeyed to our destinations made the trip pass quickly. Our family of five ranges from ages 56-13 and all of us had a fantastic experience. My son who is 13 said it was his favorite day so far. Thank you Evan and Evan's and our guide Kevin. I couldn't recommend them more.

First off it is extremely frustrating to find your actual bus for this tour. It is not well marked, there is no obvious check in process, getting in some line that you think may be correct and having some people with arm bands and some without is confusing and there were no tour representatives handing them out, we had to hunt them down. Our tour got rescheduled by the company to a very busy holiday which we were trying to avoid because of the large crowds.
The bus was packed. Which brings me to the bus driver Peter, he was determined to keep the front shades pulled despite being asked on multiple occasions by both the tour guide and the tour paying costumers to raise the shades so we could see the sights. We did pay for a sight seeing tour and our view was blocked the majority of the day. Honestly we should get a discount.
This tour advertised that they go to the White Cliffs of Dover which they do not. They go to the center of Dover proper and way off in the distance are the cliffs. We were highly disappointed.
Our guide was knowledgeable and kind but I would not recommend you take this tour if you are interested in seeing the Cliffs of Dover or seeing the country side as you travel through Great Britain

Dear The M, Thank you for leaving us feedback about the tour. Your detailed review is very important to us as it allows us to improve for future visits. We will definitely address your review with all our staff both the good and bad. We especially appreciate you pointing out about the Cliffs, we will forward this to our management team. Our representatives at the coach station are by Gates 1-5, upon check in the representative will hand you out a coloured wristband and inform you which gate you will be leaving from, please be aware there are different companies boarding by the same gate hence why our staff will inform you to wait for the tour guide to make the announcement by the gate. Again, we do apologise if certain parts of the tour description was not clear. Please do not allow this isolated incident stop you from giving us another chance. We are confident that your next experience will be worthy of a 5-star review. Best wishes Evan Evans Team

Well guided tour out of London. Godfrey kept the bus entertained with his stories and knowledge on the places we went along the way, especially when we went past the house of Barnes Wallis. He helped my mom and I get tickets to Canterbury Cathedral, because the online 3rd party site we booked through didn’t include Canterbury cathedral access when it should have. Should have booked direct through Evans Evans.
It was a smooth journey and we saw the Kent countryside, kudos to Yves and his great driving.

It was a professionally organized, punctual tour, no tome wasted. Our guide Shiela was born lead tours, stunning knowledge about everything came up during the tour. She started the “show” in London, with a lot of stories about the buildings and history. They have a special licence to take us to the inner entrance of the Leeds Castle saving a lot of time (vs those who had to park outside). Perfect day balanced time spent everywhere (could have been more sight of the cliffs though). Absolutely recommended.

Beautiful trip, perfectly timed! Our guide Nicholas was great, I have learned so much and I could listen to him all day it was so interesting. Not only he did a guided tour of the cathedral, Canterbury and about the history of Leeds Castle, but he also explained so much of what we could see from the coach during the trip and also on our way out of London and back in. Nicholas is very knowledgeable and is able to entertain the crowd while informing at the same time. Perfect prosody. Would recommend 100%!

We had a great time on the tour with our lovely guide Rowen. Her cheeriness really set the mood for the tour, and the stories she told to bring across the history of what we were visiting made it so much more engaging and interesting.

Special shout to Chris our driver, for the smooth and quick journey the whole day, even when encountering the rush hour traffic.

10/10 would recommend.

Was great, the guide was great, driver great, the bus station was easy to get to and navigate through for departure. Was worth the purchase price. The WiFi on the bus was very slow so I opted to just not use it and unfortunately the charging port in the seat backs did not work. The bus was a comfortable ride. You only see the White Cliffs of Dover from a far.

What a fun way to see sites outside of London!

Tour guy Godfrey did an excellent job of imparting a variety of knowledge and keeping us laughing. Would definitely look for his services when scheduling our next Evan and Evans tour!

Yves, our driver, took the narrow, twisty-turny roads like a pro in the big tour bus.

Fun tour, interesting sites, great guide and driver. Couldn’t ask for more!
