Traveler Tips


  • "Canterbury Cathedral thus became the highlight of the day but be advised it is a very long walk from where the bus drops you so not a good choice if you have a mobility issue." See review
  • "A bonus was the supplied box lunch which saved time for more site seeing rather than waiting in a restaurant." See review

Good, unguided tour, could be improved.

Overall, a convenient and good tour to join to see Leeds Castle and Canterbury Cathedral. While the guide provides info during the coach ride, you will explore the 2 sites on your own. The visit to Dover is nothing but a 10 min stop to take a photo from the side of the road. Boring. Should not be included. And Viator out to be factual about the water taxi ride. It is not a riverboat cruise. It’s like taking the tube, and they only announce the stops.

Could have been good, but...

Our originally scheduled tour was canceled, so we opted to take the tour replacement offered for the previous day. The Leed's Castle portion of the tour was reduced due to guests staying onsite (we did not get to see the State rooms), and an event taking place. The castle guide seemed to rush us through what was already a vastly reduced tour. We then got caught in an EPIC traffic jam on our way to the Cliffs of Dover...something we believe the tour company should have been aware of since it was all over the news and had begun to be a problem in the Dover area the day before! Our tour guide did the best he could under the circumstances, but our tour of Dover was completely missed/canceled, since we had to keep to a schedule. The Canterbury Cathedral portion of the tour was very good, and we were glad to have time to explore on our own. We then were supposed to go to Greenwich for a boat ride, but we got caught in yet more traffic and, essentially, another traffic jam. The tour guide suggested we all get off the bus and walk to the boat. After some whiney woman on the bus complained about having to carry all her "fragile china" she'd bought in Canterbury, the tour guide offered to carry it for her, so we could all get off the bus and still get to the boat. My partner and I (along with another couple) opted to simply get off the bus and exit the tour, completely. While our guide did the best he could, given the circumstances, we found this to be a terrible tour, not worth the price we paid...and it was the VERY FIRST tour my partner and I have ever taken. Given all the problems, and the fact that the tour company should have known about the Dover fiasco, we have received ZERO contact from the tour company nor any sort of suggested discount/rebate from our original booking price. We would NOT recommend this tour company.

A nice ride outside London

All aspects of the trip were enjoyed. The only issue is this trip advertised a box lunch, which did not happen. With the expectation on a box lunch, the day was long when no box lunch was provided and no stop around lunch time where food could be purchased happened.

No lunch, Dover a waste of time

The visit to Leeds Castle and Canterbury were great. The trip to Dover is worthless. You stop in the harbor and you see some white cliffs way off in the distance. We also did not get our lunch. Evidently, they weren't ready when the bus left, so we had to squeeze in some last minute scrambling for food in Canterbury and there was no compensation for the missed lunch.

The tour guide, Tony, was great and very knowledgeable. We really enjoyed visiting Leeds Castle and seeing the cliffs especially. We ended up seeing the cliffs from afar from the beach. Canterbury Cathedral was beautiful, but is under construction right now.

Great Day!

Loved the day! We arrived at Leeds Castle just as it opened, so we missed all the crowds. Beautiful castle in a beautiful setting! Wished we could have gone a little closer to the cliffs of Dover, but we understand why. Canterbury was a lovely spot to visit and we learned quite a bit about the history of England at the Cathedral. Morteu, the tour guide and Armando, the bus driver were very informative and lead a great day! The day was about an hour shorter than anticipated, so I would suggest that the group could have spent another 1/2 hour at Leeds and Canterbury..... just an idea! Overall, I would highly recommend the trip!

I went Leeds Castle and Canterbury. It was fun to see the castle which the grounds and the castle are beautiful. Stopped at Dover to see the White Cliffs. Dover is a great little place by the Channel. Pablo was friendly and very knowledgeable about the history. This was a half English and Spanish speaking tour. I met some great people and had a good time. I would definitely do the tour again!

Pablo was an excellent tour guide. He made sure we all had everything we needed including how to find our way home at the end of the tour. This trip was definitely worth my time.

Leeds, Canterbury, Dover.
Kevin K

Wonderful trip without the crowds. While everyone else is heading west to Windsor and Stonehenge go east to Leeds. Canterbury- the old part of the town and the cathedral are both inspiring. Just gorgeous. Leeds is wonderfully refurbished. Dover is only a brief picture taking stop but still nice to see. Finish the day off with a boat taxi back down the Themes to see the waterfront lit up at night. Well worth the cost. And Matt(tour guide) and Tony(driver) were both very professional at their jobs. A bonus was the supplied box lunch which saved time for more site seeing rather than waiting in a restaurant.

The attractions are so alluring and The U.K. should be proud about it. The flow of the tour was further enhanced by our ingenious tour leader, Sandra, who is quite pleasant to listen to and is well equipped with knowledge about the sites. Simply Wonderful!
