This tour was excellent! A wonderful opportunity to see historic sites in the beautiful countryside in southern England. Leeds Castle was especially lovely! The history of Canterbury Cathedral was very interesting to hear, and although a bit chilly on the day we visited the Cliffs of Dover was beautiful and just amazing to see. The tour guide was outstanding...very knowledgeable and went out of her way to ensure everyone on the tour had what they needed. There were a few issues with the tour bus itself in that the air conditioning was turned up so high that it felt like sitting in a refrigerator. That said, the bus driver was very kind and responsive in making adjustments upon request. The one area of concern that I did have was that it appeared that there was no mention of a mask requirement despite the notation of the requirement on the reservation at the time of booking. There were at least two of us on the bus who noted that multiple people were coughing and sneezing in different areas of the bus throughout the trip. Although COVID protocols have relaxed some, my thought is that those who appear to be sick or contagious should be encouraged to wear a mask or skip the tour. Whether COVID or something else, I don't want to get sick while on vacation 4000 miles from home. Many on the bus chose to wear a mask, and I'm glad that I did. Aside from that this was a great experience, and I would recommend this tour.

It was a professionally organized, punctual tour, no tome wasted. Our guide Shiela was born lead tours, stunning knowledge about everything came up during the tour. She started the “show” in London, with a lot of stories about the buildings and history. They have a special licence to take us to the inner entrance of the Leeds Castle saving a lot of time (vs those who had to park outside). Perfect day balanced time spent everywhere (could have been more sight of the cliffs though). Absolutely recommended.

Beautiful trip, perfectly timed! Our guide Nicholas was great, I have learned so much and I could listen to him all day it was so interesting. Not only he did a guided tour of the cathedral, Canterbury and about the history of Leeds Castle, but he also explained so much of what we could see from the coach during the trip and also on our way out of London and back in. Nicholas is very knowledgeable and is able to entertain the crowd while informing at the same time. Perfect prosody. Would recommend 100%!

First off it is extremely frustrating to find your actual bus for this tour. It is not well marked, there is no obvious check in process, getting in some line that you think may be correct and having some people with arm bands and some without is confusing and there were no tour representatives handing them out, we had to hunt them down. Our tour got rescheduled by the company to a very busy holiday which we were trying to avoid because of the large crowds.
The bus was packed. Which brings me to the bus driver Peter, he was determined to keep the front shades pulled despite being asked on multiple occasions by both the tour guide and the tour paying costumers to raise the shades so we could see the sights. We did pay for a sight seeing tour and our view was blocked the majority of the day. Honestly we should get a discount.
This tour advertised that they go to the White Cliffs of Dover which they do not. They go to the center of Dover proper and way off in the distance are the cliffs. We were highly disappointed.
Our guide was knowledgeable and kind but I would not recommend you take this tour if you are interested in seeing the Cliffs of Dover or seeing the country side as you travel through Great Britain

Dear The M, Thank you for leaving us feedback about the tour. Your detailed review is very important to us as it allows us to improve for future visits. We will definitely address your review with all our staff both the good and bad. We especially appreciate you pointing out about the Cliffs, we will forward this to our management team. Our representatives at the coach station are by Gates 1-5, upon check in the representative will hand you out a coloured wristband and inform you which gate you will be leaving from, please be aware there are different companies boarding by the same gate hence why our staff will inform you to wait for the tour guide to make the announcement by the gate. Again, we do apologise if certain parts of the tour description was not clear. Please do not allow this isolated incident stop you from giving us another chance. We are confident that your next experience will be worthy of a 5-star review. Best wishes Evan Evans Team

We had a great time on the tour with our lovely guide Rowen. Her cheeriness really set the mood for the tour, and the stories she told to bring across the history of what we were visiting made it so much more engaging and interesting.

Special shout to Chris our driver, for the smooth and quick journey the whole day, even when encountering the rush hour traffic.

10/10 would recommend.

Was great, the guide was great, driver great, the bus station was easy to get to and navigate through for departure. Was worth the purchase price. The WiFi on the bus was very slow so I opted to just not use it and unfortunately the charging port in the seat backs did not work. The bus was a comfortable ride. You only see the White Cliffs of Dover from a far.

As for the WiFi we do apologise however, we are renewing them to ensure faster connectivity in the future. We also have separate charging ports in case the ones on the backseat fail to work.

I found this tour deeply disappointing. My primary motivation for booking this tour was a chance to view the White Cliffs. The other stops would be bonuses for me. Not only are you not able to go atop the cliffs, you can only view them from the beach at a great distance. I feel the description in the tour itinerary is greatly misleading. In addition whilst the castle and cathedral are interesting, the tours themselves are bland and the cathedral is currently covered in scaffolding both in and outside, so a lot of it’s luster is lacking. I understand the scaffolding/construction on a centuries old building is not the tour company’s fault, but our guide seemed aware of this when we arrived and I feel there is a professional obligation to let the customer know the building is not as pictured on the website. I feel the price of this tour does not reflect the wow factor at all, I regret +++ booking this tour.

Hi there, Thank you for taking the time to leave a us a review. We greatly appreciate your feedback and take everything on-board. We're sorry to hear you're disappointed with certain aspects of the tour.The visit to Dover is a short photo stop. On regards to the Cathedral being under construction these buildings are hundreds of years old and need to be restored for everyone to enjoy and to be maintained,we understand your frustration,however this is beyond our control. If you find yourself in London again we would like to host you on another Evan Evans tour in the future. Kind regards, Evan Evans Team

Norma was a terrific guide on our day trip to 3 beautiful areas of England, taking the time to give us a personalised tour of Canterbury Cathedral. It was obvious that she has great knowledge of the history and culture of England, specifically Canterbury, and you could tell she enjoys doing what she does.
Our driver Steve was great fun and went out of his way to show us great views of the Cliffs of Dover despite it being a misty day. The two of them made a great team. I will definitely be touring with Evan Evans in future trips to London, and highly recommend them to others.

This is a very good, all day trip from London. Leeds Castle is absolutely beautiful and has an incredibly interesting history. The Owl and Falcon experience is well worth it and the Hedge Maze is something that you have to try (takes 20 to 25 minutes). You get about 20 minutes to walk around the edge of downtown and this provides you with a distant view of the white cliffs. You don’t actually go up to the cliffs, though. From Dover, you take the bus to Canterbury Cathedral. Quite honestly, although I guess you might as well see the cliffs if you are driving near them, I would have rather we skipped Dover and had more time in Canterbury. The cathedral is dripping with history, the shopping area is fairly quaint and, even after touring the Cathedral and walking around the town, there is enough time to have a nice lunch in one of the many restaurants along Canterbury’s cobblestone streets. You can’t go fifty feet without hitting a restaurant. A long bus ride to Greenwich follows, and you board a riverboat at the Greenwich Harbor as soon as you arrive. The tour ends after a half hour on the Thames. All of this is a very good way to spend a day, but having an excellent tour guide like we had, Trish, made it an EXCELLENT way to spend the day. Trish’s knowledge of applicable history is encyclopedic and her pronunciation of French names and places was spot on. If Trish is your guide, try to stay awake on the bus rides because you’ll learn a lot when she speaks.
