A Recent Review of this tour

Dawn receives top scores for her level of knowledge, her planning, and her personality. She was fully prepared to explain everything from the Cathedral at Canterbury to the plants at Walmer Castle. We so enjoyed her company as well as our lively tour along the Strait of Dover with its history and its landmarks. Thanks Dawn!!
