Peter and Mano were the perfect team. Moving us through quite a bit of history and fantastic scenery and buildings - not too fast and not too slow. Peter's knowledge is suberb and his stories added something extra to the tour. We were thoroughly entertained.

Leeds castle was nice. It should be mentioned it was redesigned/decorated in the 1920s. We saw the Dover cliffs from maybe a mile away. No where near the cliffs - I mistakenly thought we’d be on top to feel the ocean breeze. Canterbury was self guided. Greenwich was a 30 second walk thru. No time to shop/browse. And the river cruise was much like a taxi service. Many stops. No tour info of what we’re looking at. Still don’t know what the egg shaped building is.

I gave this a 4 because we saw amazing sights and it was well worth the money for the locations. The timing in each place was also perfect. However, our guide was not that good. He was somewhat abrupt and rude in demeanor. He also complained about being overworked (we were with Golden tours on Wednesday 9/28). He gave some history and commentary, but as not much compared to other guided trips we have done. To give him credit, he was doing the tour bilingually which was seamless and impressive.

My husband and I had the BEST day on this specific tour! Our lead, Danxia, communicated excellent facts and information throughout the day. Our bus driver Ashley got us to each destination flawlessly and efficiently. We felt the drop off and meeting times at each stop were very appropriate. We experienced so much in a very organized schedule. Thank you Golden Tours UK + team! ☺️

I've always wanted to see a castle. I went the week of the queens funeral, which meant everything in the city was closed. After looking at tours I settled on this tour. The trip did not disappoint. After we went to Canterbury. The cathedral was amazing but I also managed to shop in the stores. Dove was nice to look at but that's all you did. I liked how it ended with a boat ride. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and entertaining. The driver was good too.

If you don’t want a Spanish tour and English is your first language, go with a different tour operator. We didn’t sign up for Spanish, and it’s unfortunate that Golden Tours didn’t inform us that we’d be on a bilingual tour. Our guide Pablo doesn’t have enough time to cover both languages, and I t’s hard to understand his English at times. Also he spends a lot more time in Spanish vs English, so it felt a bit one sided. Great if you’re a Spanish speaker though! At both Dover and Leeds you’re very much left to your own devices. There was no guided tour at all so we were a little lost and didn’t get a sense of the culture of the stops. At least we were able to google information in the downtime between stops, and the stops were worthwhile. Bottom line: go with someone else if you’re looking for context and culture.

Great day tour if you want to see sights outside of London! Leeds castle was incredible, and Canterbury is a really neat town. Dover was quick but still neat to see, and the river boat ride back was a different way to travel. Danxia was an excellent tour guide, very knowledgeable and made the tour really fun! Ashley drive us everywhere so carefully and made great time. Thanks for a great experience!

Castle was great but Danxia made the entire trip worth it. 2 days later, took another excursion and couldn't find our bus. Saw Danxia and she took the time to take us to where the bus was - Outstanding guide and service!! Ashley was driver and also did a great job.

Logistics were terrible. Handing out wristbands at last minute caused delays so it really cut into the time to look at anything. Tour guide rambling on with info at inoppertune times when it could have been done during the time on the bus. Location to view White Cliffs was quite disappointing. They actually drive by the side in town that has buildings against it and not the beachside view area. Guide was always telling everyone to be prompt and to keep moving because we didn’t have much time but yet she would gather us and talk for 15-20 min and pass out wristbands after we’d get off the bus at every stop. I think that should be done on the bus as we’re driving to the sites.

What an amazing adventure! I loved every minute of this trip. Our guide, Eileen, was so knowledgeable about the countryside and the history of the areas we visited. We were given plenty of opportunities to stop and explore. We could not have planned a better outing ourselves! This is a MUST for anyone wanting to see the city, countryside, and coast.
