Nice little tour from London. Lucy was our guide - she had some interesting information but would have liked a little more talking from her. The info she did give seemed a bit disjointed. She was a lovely host though and had lots of great local knowledge. The walking tour through Canterbury was also very nice.
We had enough time at the cliffs to walk out to a viewing area which had quite a nice view.
Would have loved more time in Canterbury as there was only time to do the cathedral or explore the town (but not both).
Quite a nice tour overall and would recommend it to everyone.

We hiked the length of the cliffs, and enjoyed stunning views. There are a few spots where you can split up from your traveling partner, and get a photo from across the great divide between cliffs. Canterbury is beautiful, with many shops and pubs.

Hello, we booked the tour but in last moment my company called me to go to work and we couldn't attend. We really like to go. Is there any chance to go another day?

Thanks so much.

Expected more. The White Cliffs were awesome and day was clear so the you cuold see across the English Channel. The walking was a bit much so pase yourself. The huge disappointment was the city of Canterbury. It was so crowd and again required alot of walking just to get to the city center. The town itself was quaint and really a very typical old English city. I would still take the tour but would do the options differently. Do the White Cliffs and only walk about 1/2 hour on the path. Relax and then return to the van. You will still see 90% of the cliffs. In Canterbury grab a quick lunch, lots of outside cafes to experience the atmosphere - and - then do the optional Cathedral Tour. Missing the cathedral would be like missing the main attraction. You should have plenty of energy to properly enjoy it.

This was such an amazing trip! Lots of walking, especially if you decide to do Dover Castle, so wear good shoes. We had decent weather for the cliffs and it only got better as the day went on. It was breezy and a bit cloudy so we couldn’t see France across the English Channel, but you could definitely still see the cliffs clearly and the view of the cliffs was enough for me! I spent half an hour taking pictures and enjoying the scenery before heading out to Dover Castle (£20.90 admission), which I chose over more time at the cliffs. The castle is well worth the time and money! Beautiful views of the port of Dover and lots of history about the importance of Dover as a first line of defense for England during medieval times. You also get to tour the underground WW2 tunnels which were used as a hospital for injured soldiers during the war. It was a very educational experience! We arrived at the White Cliffs of Dover at 10:15am and left for Dover Castle at 11am. After 2 hours at the castle, we drove to Canterbury and had 2 hours to explore before driving back to London, arriving around 6:30pm. The Canterbury Cathedral (£12.50 admission) was absolutely gorgeous, especially on the inside! The city of Canterbury is charming and has lots of little shops to browse through for souvenirs! I recommend taking a sandwich from a cafe with you to eat on the bus ride between Dover and Canterbury so that you can use all of your time exploring the cities. A perfect day trip from London!

Great experience at the White Cliffs of Dover, spent the time walking up to the lighthouse, which was a great experience and phenomenal views. Would have liked to take the lighthouse tour however time did not permit. The visit at Cantabury was also nice, cute little town to walk around and have a good lunch. Only downfall was I find the timing should be better aligned to reflect the 10 hour duration. Essentially leave Cantabury earlier to avoid London traffic. So if you have things planned after back in London, expect you will be 30-45 minutes late4 than originally planned to arrive.

Dear Terry P, Thank you for review on our tour to White Cliffs of Dover and Canterbury Cathedral. We are glad that you had a great experience to the White Cliffs and that you enjoyed the lighthouse. We want to give as much time in Canterbury as possible as many people will not get a chance to visit this beautiful city again. We generally aim to be back in London for 6pm/ 6.30 pm. All times are approximate and we do our very best to reach this time. Thank you for taking the time to review this tour. Kind Regards , Day Tours London Team.

This was a wonderful day trip during our vacation to London. Our guide/driver, Damian was very sweet and laid-back. Instead of a large tour bus, we went in a smaller, 16-passenger van, which was nice as it ensured a smaller group.
The Dover cliffs were just as I imagined and so beautiful and Dover Castle was very impressive. Damian was quite knowledgeable regarding each stop and really helped us to make the most of everything. In Canterbury, we were given a quick tour and town overview by a lovely lady named Lucy who was born and raised there.
If you're wondering, the return time to London is approximately 6:00pm. Overall, I definitely recommend this trip. It's a great way to escape the hustle and bustle of London for a bit and check off some things that may be on your bucket list.

The trip was very good especially the fiŕst part of it. It is amazing to spend time in the white cliffs and hike about 2 hours in the area. I would recommend it to everybody. The second part is not so interesting as Canterbury is a small village, the cathedral was ok, I was not so impressed as I had expected at the beginning.
