The shady corners and ancient buildings conceal stories, mysteries, and speculation. This will be a whistle-stop and anecdotal tour of one of the most famous cities in England.

The total walking distance is about 2km and takes just over half an hour without stopping. The VoiceMap app uses your location to trigger each part of the walk automatically. So, relax, enjoy exploring and feel free to pause the tour at any point!

    We had so much fun on this trip! we stayed in Westminster area, so they were able to pick us up at bus stop close to our hotel. Then we went o the castle first for about 2.5 hours and we picked up lunch here from deli. then we drove 5 min. to cliffs and stayed there for about an hour, which was enough time to see the views. there were wild cows there and we got to pet them! Then we drove 30 min. to Canterbury and saw the cathedral (super beautiful) and then we had about 1.5 hours left to beep boop around Canterbury with lots of shopping, dining and drinking spots. I got baklava from Amelia's and it was AMAZING!!! Then about an hour drive back to London and everyone dropped off at the London Bridge bus stop. You can just swipe your credit card to enter the London Bridge tube/train and go to wherever your closest train stop is to get back to your hotel. Great trip with great spots for pictures that are different than London for visitors! I would recommend it! The bus was clean and comfy too.

    We liked the smaller tour group- no more than 16 people. The van was clean and comfortable. Our guide, David, was friendly and knowledgeable. The White Cliff of Dover were hard to see due to fog and our angle of walking on a trail parallel to the cliff. Canterbury Cathedral was beautiful. An audio headset is important to learn about the different aspects of the cathedral. We had lunch in Deal. A stop at a quaint village for a short time would have been welcomed. Canterbury was a bit touristy. Again, we were in rush hour traffic into London for about one hour returning back. A dinner in a small village might have been a good choice to avoid some of the traffic.

    We booked this private tour thru London Country Tours (David Stubbs) and I would highly recommend this to anyone. The driver/tour guide (Peter) was excellent and adapted our trip route and time at each location to suit our desires. Be prepared for a history lesson as we found out Peter was a history teacher which enriched the experience. The countryside drive was just as enjoyable as the locations visited. If you have 4+ people, a private London Country Tours is the way to go as the cost becomes more economical vs. paying a per person rate with a group tour operator and it is far more flexible in terms of spending time at your preferred locations. We were picked up and dropped off at our London Airbnb.

    My family took two different English Bus tours during our time in London and they were the highlight of our trip. Both Tony and Chris were very knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful. We learned many things we wouldn’t have if we would have opted to tour on our own. The small, comfortable busses allowed us to travel down beautiful, narrow roads that a larger bus wouldn’t have been able to navigate. The smaller group size prevented us from feeling like we were swarming some of the more isolated destinations.

    A very pleasant beginner's tour of the Cliffs and of the city of Canterbury.

    I like that ours was a smaller group and that it gave you some reasonable time to wander off on your own while providing lots of great background information about the areas during the time spent together as a group. Darren was a great guide, had lots of energy and a very friendly demeanour.

    Getting into Dover Castle and the Canterbury Cathedral cost extra, which was a bummer (I thought the Cathedral was included, the description of the tour was a little vague).

    The Cliffs were BEAUTIFUL, but, on our tour day a huge fog rolled in and most of it was obfuscated within minutes. We were there for a goodly amount of time but thanks to the fog I BARELY saw the cliffs...not sure if there's a way to avoid that in advance, but, keep in mind that this might be a possibility for the tour. I would still recommend going, though. The hike along the cliffs was exhilarating anyway! DRESS WARMLY.

    Overall, though, it was a very stress-free experience and if you don't want to drive, it's at least a decent cost-effective way to see some cool sights for a day (if you pack some food) (additional castle/cathedral fees aside).

    This tour was such a perfect addition to our week in London. Wanted to get out of the city for a day and see more of the country. Our tour guide, Peter, was amazing! He was laid back and funny, but also extremely knowledgeable, he made the experience totally worth it!! We were a family of 5 with 2 young kids and he was beyond accommodating and tailored the day to exactly what we all wanted. Would highly recommend this tour!!

    This was a very enjoyable way to travel back to London post cruise. We docked and were off the boat in Dover by 545 am and check in to hotel wasn't until 1500. This trip was perfect. Michael our tour guide and Will our coach driver made the trip fun. Mike a wealth of local knowledge kelp us entertained with stories and history of the area. We also did walking tour to both Canterbury Cathedral and Leeds castle before being let loose on our own to explore and shop. We had ample time at both stops to wander around and do a bit of shopping.. Great tour and at a great price. Thank you Mike and Will for a great day

    Annie is fabulous, very patient and highly skilled and gifted in her trade. I would thoroughly recommend these workshops for anyone of any ability, out of interest, curiosity or just for fun.
