Jane is absolutely brilliant. We felt we were discovering Kent, with a friend who apart from being an excellent driver, tailored the tour our interests and had a wealth of knowledge: history, literature and art - All of which she explained simply including some local anecdotes. Jane knew the best places to see the sites, where to eat and the... More

My step mother, 17 year old daughter and I went on a tour with Jane to Devon and Cornwall. Jane was absolutely amazing! She helped us build an itinerary for our trip and put so much thought into ensuring that we got the most of our time there. Jane tailored the trip to our personal interests and gave great suggestions.... More

We toured Kent for several days in July with Jane Martin. She is absolutely the best guide and great fun to be with. She gave us an outstanding tour of Canterbury Cathedral as well as Great Dixter (Christopher Lloyd's garden) and Sissinghurst. This was our second trip with Jane, and we can't recommend her more highly. You won't be disappointed.

We had a wonderful time with Jane, who I contacted after reading many other great reviews for her on Trip Advisor. She picked us up in Southampton from the QM2 terminal and drove us to Stonehenge and Salisbury the first day and then to our hotel in Somerset. The next day we toured a bit of the Cotswolds area, taking... More

My daughter and I were taken to Dover and Canterbury on a recent visit and had a wonderful time. Jane is extremely knowledgeable about the history of Kent and all of its many places of interest. I would really recommend "tours of the realm" for a fun and personable tour. The car was comfortable and so much better than a... More

We found Jane Martin's site while searching Kent County and are glad we did. Jane Martin is friendly, personable and, importantly, knowledgeable. 4 of us booked a day tour to several places with Jane (two we chose, two she recommended).. and we are glad we chose Jane for our tour guide. She designed the trip, took many back country roads... More

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
