What to Expect
From London, travel south to Leeds Castle, a fortress often described as England’s loveliest castle. Popular for its colorful history, as well as its looks, the castle gets busy but beat the crowds with an early-access tour. Follow a guide on a private group tour and then enjoy free time to explore the expansive gardens, lake, and maze. Travel onward to the nearby White Cliffs of Dover, the sweep of chalk rockface that lines the English Channel. Then, head to Canterbury Cathedral for a guided tour of the UNESCO World Heritage Site, followed by a lunch break in Canterbury itself. Your journey back takes in one last stop in Greenwich for a walking tour, where you listen to tales of the royal borough’s maritime heritage. Later, return to London Embankment Pier via the river with a sunset River Thames cruise.

We booked this about two weeks ahead of our scheduled visit. Two days before we were scheduled to go on the tour I called a company with a question. At that time they told me the trip was not yet “confirmed” even though I had already paid. It turns out they were holding out

I had this tour on 25th December and I was very disappointed about it. At Canterbury I had “a chance to enjoy the Christmas services in the Cathedral”, (I’m quoting Premium Tours email) but we had to leave before service finished. But that’s ok. Then we had a decent Christmas

Good and informative guide. We can only have lunch after Canterbury visit at 1430. This is too late from when we started the journey at 8. We could have lunch first before the cathedral visit.
