Pass By: Greenwich, London, England

Greenwich is a borough in London, England, on the banks of the River Thames. Known for its maritime history, it's home to the Cutty Sark, a restored 19th-century ship, the huge National Maritime Museum, and the classical buildings of the Old Royal Naval College. The modern O2 arena sits on a peninsula to the north. Overlooking peaceful Greenwich Park, the Royal Observatory is the site of the Greenwich meridian line.

Stop At: Canterbury Cathedral, Canterbury, Kent, England

A designated UNESCO World Heritage Site, Canterbury Cathedral is both a serene place of holiness and beautiful tourist destination. As the Cathedral of the Archbishop, the spiritual leader of the Church of England, Canterbury holds a special place in British history. No ordinary Cathedral, Canterbury has a long history that is often described as ‘England in Stone’; from the role of its Archbishops in the Magna Carta to the murder of Thomas Becket after a power struggle with the King of England, Canterbury’s history is intertwined with that of England. Founded by St Augustine in 600 AD, the Cathedral today is one of the finest examples of Gothic architecture in England, and the first building in the country to be redesigned in this popular style in 1774.

Duration: 45 minutes

Pass By: Dover Castle, Dover, Kent, England

Soaring 350ft above the crashing waves of the English Channel, the White Cliffs of Dover are an instantly recognisable landmark of Britain.

Stop At: Leeds Castle, Maidstone, Kent, England

Located in Kent, ‘The Garden of England’, lies Leeds Castle, a beautiful medieval castle frequently referred to as ‘the loveliest castle in the world’. With 500 acres of landscaped parkland to explore and impeccably maintained gardens to enjoy, it’s easy to see why this beautiful castle was a favoured castle of King Henry VIII, who gifted it to his first wife, Catherine of Aragon.
In its 900-year history, the castle has been home to no fewer than six queens and served many functions, including acting as a garrison, prison and the stately private home of its most recent owners. Learn all about this and more as our expert tour guide brings its fascinating story to life.

Our tour guide was absolutely amazing! Bus driver was such an ameaome driver despite some crazy drivers on the toad yesterday!! Deb shared her vast knowledge w/all of us on board and was so kind! I hope our tour on Friday is with the same two ladies!!!! I just can’t even fathom how Deb recalls all the dates and info she passed along to us! How lucky for your tour company to have such a knowledgeable individual working for them!!!

Good guide and safe driver. The guide provided good historical background information and tips around London as well. The only regret is not having time to actually visit Dover Castle.

Chrissy was very knowledgeable and share this knowledge in a very positive, exciting manner. The mention that this goes through Canterbury should be clarified to clearly state that it is just a drive by.

Such a wonderful experience! I was traveling with my parents who can’t speak English. But we were all deeply impressed by our guide, a elegant, friendly and professional lady! Our tour number was 22, it’s a pity that I didn’t remember her name. I wanted to say thanks to her for remembering getting Chinese instruction for my parents. They didn’t understand what she was saying. But they knew she’s so kind! Highly recommended!
