A Recent Review of this tour

David was absolutely fantastic, he met us at Heathrow and we drove to Dover for a tour and to board the cruise. He was a fantastic guide, very much in tune with our interests and requests. Our family of four including 2 teens thoroughly enjoyed the time and learned quite a bit about the main attractions and we have lots of photos since David was taking nice shots of us. David even hired a larger car since we had a lot of luggage. If you want an excellent tour, I highly recommend David! Lina
