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 Leeds castle grounds were great and the stops at Salisbury and Dover as well as Greenwich made for a good day of sightseeing.

We had a great small coach tour with tour guide Tish and driver Koli. Leeds Castle is so pretty, and I do feel that we had enough time there. Afterwards, we were given boxed lunch on the coach, which was tasty enough. We spent substantial time in Canterbury, where we were let loose to explore the Cathedral (there are some Kings' tombs there!) and wander the fun shopping areas. We barely stopped on the beach in Dover, but the whole tour would need to be different in order to give us more time there in the castle or something, so I'm not upset. Then we ended in Greenwich, and took a nice boat back up the Thames (this wasn't a boat for just the tour, there were also commuters on it, seemingly). I recommend this tour!

This was a very enjoyable day trip loved the views along the way, Leeds Castle and grounds were beautiful. Canterbury Cathedral is magnificent, only shame was the amount of renovations/maintenance taking place

My 12 hours was amazing. Leeds Castle was amazing, with beauty all over. Whit Cliffs of Dover also beautiful. Canterbury Cathedral was amazing with its stained glass, and architecture. Greenwich naval College was quite interesting.
