Discover the secrets of the Dover and surrounds with a knowledgeable local guide.

Welcome to Dover - The Gateway to England.

This tour is both special and unique. As your local Tourist Guide, in a town where I went to school and grew up, I can make sure that you do not miss anything which you might like to include on an 'ordinary' tour, but want to offer something a bit extra, or a bit 'extraordinary'! A real 'peep behind the scenes'There are plentiful options, and, as this is your private tour, I can work to your timings, numbers and your brief. My aim is to make sure that you go home with happy memories of your day.

We visit the iconic White Cliffs, and take a 'time machine' from 3, 200 years ago up until present day. Not just history, but views, countryside, nature, literature, food and typical English pubs. Entertaining and informative, with everything from before the Romans through to '007' and beyond ! My Dover, with the opportunity to meet the neighbours in St Margaret's Bay and Folkestone too !


Our day and the time we start the tour is flexible and is meant to accommodate your schedule and interests.

A Recent Review of this tour

We were "new" to Tours by Locals so this was certainly a bit challenging. Booking with needs for early pick up, delivery to a ship that was leaving, etc. etc. and assured the entire time that all would be fine. AND IT WAS! Yvonne was simply wonderful. and what a way for us to begin our 24 day cruise with a wonderful land tour of Dover and the country side. Yvonne would be our new best friend if only she lived closer to the Mid West USA. We all loved what we saw and what Yvonne shared and driver best
