Really enjoyed this tour. Our guide Rob was very knowledgeable and also very helpful with all our needs. I enjoyed the castle Particularly. Would recommend to those wanting to see the sights a way from London.
Our driver/guide, Paul was friendly, entertaining and knowledgeable, particularly about Canterbury. We had not heard about Leeds Castle before this trip, so it was a wonderful bonus. The view of the white cliffs of Dover is not extensive from the land you would need to view it from a boat to fully appreciate it. However, it was as good as it could be. Canterbury was all we expected and more! Paul's knowledge and commentary helped a huge amount in our appreciation and enjoyment of the town of Canterbury in the time available. The cathedral is astounding the town is even better!
We liked our tour guide except when he played awful pop music and enjoyed all the places we saw, especially Canterbury Cathedral, where we really needed a little more time. We appreciated the extra effort the guide made to save us some walking at the end of the Canterbury time by picking us up at a closer point than everyone else walked to. We couldn't really see the white cliffs at Dover because we weren't up for the walk, but I believe the others on the tour got a nice view. We appreciated the guide playing the old song about the white cliffs of Dover. We also liked the extra stop the guide made at the Battle of Britain memorial, which was interesting and touching, with the names of all the lost pilots on a wall, and a large statue of a pilot sitting on the ground, looking out toward the sea. Leeds Castle is very pretty, but anyone who doesn't feel up to walking around it, as my husband didn't, should know that there is no place to sit except outdoors near the gift shop. Fortunately, it didn't rain while we were there.
