What To Expect

Canterbury Cathedral
Step inside 1500 years of history to the sight of the very first cathedral in England. Here your guide will explain the story of how a dispute between a King and an Archbishop ended in chaos and the assassination of Thomas Becket in AD 1170.

45 minutes • Admission Ticket Not Included

Dover Castle
After a morning in Canterbury, we take a short drive through the majestic Kent Wealds to the South-East coast of Britain, where we stop for a visit to Dover Castle. This magnificent fortress boasts the largest keep in the country, and offers wonderful views of The English Channel from the White Cliffs. Aside from this, Dover has a magnificent exhibit on Operation Dynamo, where British and French Troops were rescued from the shores of Dunkirk in 1940. Here you can learn about the build up and preparation of this brave intervention.

3 hours • Admission Ticket Not Included

The White Cliffs of Dover
What could be more of a symbol of British identity than the White Cliffs of Dover?! Once romanticised through the words of Vera Lynn, The White Cliffs of Dover served as a message of hope and strength through some of the darkest hours of World War II. This is why we take you to the Battle of Britain Memorial, where you will not only be able to admire the cliffs but pay your respect to 'The Few' that fought to defend the country against the German Airforce.

30 minutes • Admission Ticket Free

Chilham Village
We finish the day with a drive through a quaint country drive into The Kent Down AONB. Here we stop at the delightfully untouched village of Chilham, with a beautiful church and surrounding Tudor Framed houses.

First class service for a flawless day with Oz and Paul

We hired Tailored Tours for a private tour of Dover and Canterbury. Our group of 13 had an amazing day with Oz and Paul! They are both fun, kind, very knowledgeable and our day was flawless. They picked us up from our cruise ship and arranged a fantastic breakfast for us along the way. They went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable, safe and welcome. We absolutely recommend this company to anyone that appreciates attention to detail and first class service. Thanks Oz and Paul, you're both fantastic and come hang out with us in LA!
Great day touring Dover Castle and Canterbury with Oz!

This was a great tour and Oz is totally awesome. Can’t say enough about how convenient, fun, comfortable, kind, accommodating, phenomenally smart and historically intelligent he is. We had a great time. Dover castle is amazing and the history is totally rich! Amazing castle! It is a beautiful area of England, the architecture and the landscape is mesmerizing with the sea, rolling hills, and the besotting castle. The history is vast at this location and Oz was able to guide us the whole day with logistical knowledge and historical facts. Canterbury Castle and the town of Canterbury is breathtaking beautiful and charming! I would love to spend another whole day there! Really a great time. Took my son and friends and it was a great day of making memories. Can’t thank Oz enough for going above and beyond!
Amazing ......

On a recent visit to London with my friends, we decided to take a day out of the city and explore Dover Castle and Canterbury. We found Tailored Tours on TripAdvisor and they had great reviews so we decided to travel with them. Our Tour Guide ‘OZ’ was the best! He was so kind and looked after us all day and his knowledge of history was incredible! We learned so many interesting stories about the people that built Dover Castle and had a really fun time! On the way home we stopped at a really cute little village called Chilham which was so beautiful! Thank you Oz!
