Excellent driver who well guides you with enthusiasm and a good dose of entertainment while touring around, among one stop and the other. I did it alone and ended to join another traveller in exploring local spots as well as typical food and staff that we were good suggested. I kindly recommend it!

Canterbury Cathedral is definitely a must-see. Its Gothic architecture is breathtaking and majestic. The guides were very friendly and helpful and truly passionate about the history of the cathedral. Canterbury is a bustling city with a vibrant market, convenience shops, coffee shops, fresh fruit stalls... You could spend the day wandering about the streets. The chalky Kent hills are just as breathtaking and mesmerizing. Although the stopovers at Dale's sunny seaside and the Kent countryside were enjoyable, Canterbury and Kent are more than enough to fill out the whole day trip, just to make sure you make the most of both of them. Glenn is an amazing guide with a thorough knowledge of the area and its history, and his playlist is actually a mnemonic device to remind him of any relevant detail about the next spot you're about to discover!!

The whole tour was great and the tour guide provided us with background history of the town which was great and played some great music too. We only had one issue on the day, and it's more to do with the getyour guide location on the trip. It is close by but not the exact location. Perhaps liase with the company about the exact meeting place. Otherwise, the trip was great.
