Rather than opt for an efficient two-hour taxi ride to Dover, I thought I would treat myself with a private tour and have my one day layover in Dover count for something. Jane, my guide, was absolutely wonderful. I was met at Heathrow Airport and we toured the countryside of Kent. Having done the castles/cathedrals many times before, I wanted... More

I found Jane Martin's site by chance while searching for tours of Canterbury while our ship was in Dover. Jane proved to be a first rate guide (and excellent driver on those narrow lanes designed for two way traffic!). She will tailor a day to include any sights on your agenda, with enough time available. She toured the Cathedral and... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our day with Jane. It was the first time we'd arranged for a private guide. We wanted to go from Canterbury to Cranbrook to visit a church where my husband's ancestor had been a vicar in the 1500's. Afterwards we had lunch at a lovely pub and then drove to Sissinghurst Castle (which she had recommended). On... More

I was in London for 9 days in early May and booked Jane to take me from London to Southampton to pick up my sister (who was returning from studying abroad), then to Stonehenge, and back to London. Honestly, even if we'd skipped Stonehenge and the drives through the beautiful countryside, riding in the car would have been memorable in... More

Words cannot express the fun we had while touring with Jane. She was always on time, had a smile on her face, and was willing to take us everywhere even if it made her late in getting back home. Jane is very knowledgeable, and doesn't bore you to death with details, I would highly recommend anybody wanting to book with... More

Our first time using Jane as a guide, and hopefully not the last. We had reserved Jane for 2 days in March to drive us and take us around the Sussex/Kent area. We were not able to stay at our first choice in Kent (they were busy) and she suggested a wonderful B & B in Rye. First off I'd... More

We can highly recommend Tours of the Realm with Jane Martin! This was our second tour booking with Jane and this time she organized a two day tour itinerary for us. Before our trip we again shared some information with her about what we'd like to see and do. Jane did an "outstanding job" fitting in everything on our list... More

I am an American writer who recently used Tours of the Realm to help me research an upcoming book which is set along the Canterbury trail. Jane Martin worked with me to create the perfect touring plan for the area, even mapping out walkable parts of the trail. She was with me every step of the way, from apple orchards... More

Our appreciation to Jane Martin of Tours of the Realm for kindly rearranging her week at very short notice to take my husband and I on a wonderful drive through Kent. As we were only in the U.K for two weeks we had limited time to spend touring. Jane met us at Ashford International Train Station to begin a day... More

Intent on a thorough exploration of Kent we contacted Jane for advice. She helped craft an itinerary that enabled us to tour many sites on our own for 3 days using convenient rail service from our hotel in Canterbury, and then she escorted us for 2 days to the harder-to-reach places. With Jane we drove through Romney Marsh on our... More
