Very good but there was a ferry struck which caused a traffic nightmare and reduced the tour. Only had a chance to view the Dover castle from a parking lot to take pictures. No time to go to the grounds

This was absolutely perfect. If you need a transfer from London to Dover, this worked out perfect for us. Other than spending about 2 hrs on the bus picking up people from hotels, it was well worth it. For us, it appeared the 3 of us were the only ones going to Dover Castle. So after a short stop at the pier to drop off luggage and passengers, the driver took the 3 of us to Dover Castle for our "excursion". I'd say the only negative was there was not enough time. It's a huge place and you need lots of time to explore. We didn't get thru the tunnels, but made the hospital, which is similar. Also have to make the Tower. It was well worth it, becuz we got to do something other than wait on the ship for 5 hrs before departing.

From the time we were picked up at our hotel to the time we arrived at Dover Castle, 5 hours had passed. It's a two hour trip from London to Dover. The balance of the 5 hours was spent picking up people from other hotels in London, waiting at Victoria Station, and picking up more people from hotels near Heathrow. We enjoyed Dover Castle, and the cost of the transportation from London to Dover was reasonable, but I can't recommend this to anyone. Weigh your options. Dover Castle, itself, was excellent.
