5 stars +....David shared his vast knowledge of English history in and around Dover. He was the perfect gentleman, interesting and very accommodating. We needed to change the time of our tour the day before and he even showed up early. He adjusted the itinerary to our whims, longer and shorter times at venues. He even added several extra stops once he realized what our interests were to enhance our day. He and the tour were SPECTACULAR and we will always fondly remember our 8 hour tour with David.
