TESTIMONIALS

North of England Tour

“John & Tanya- Thank you for being so kind and helpful to me. Your organizational smooth running of every day is so amazing. I have enjoyed the past 10 days immensely. I am going to miss everything so much! Your driving, commentary and choice of accommodations have all been superb."

Day Out from London

We recently visited England on a tour led by John. We stayed on a couple of extra days and John helped us schedule a half day with his wife Tanya to see the White Cliffs of Dover and Canterbury. They both are incredible! We traveled on our own to and from London; with their helpful and clear directions we had zero issues. Their knowledge, friendliness and professionalism are outstanding. We cannot recommend them high enough and will keep them in mind should we ever have the opportunity for a return visit. Thank you both!

Fabulous Guided Tour

We just completed a five day tour in England before taking a separate river cruise. England Plus Tours is run by  husband and wife team, John & Tanya Firth. They are based in the beautiful seaside town of Folkestone, which is in the Kent district near such sites as Dover, Leeds Castle, Sissinghurst gardens, Canterbury, Sandwich, Walmer Castle and many great memorial sites, such as the museum at the location of the Battle of Britain.  We have traveled extensively in the UK, but can say this was by far our best experience. John and Tanya are very personable and made us feel like family. Not only are they experts in their region for which they have Blue Badge certification, but they also have considerable travel experience all over the UK and in neighboring countries. They have a very new and comfortable vehicle which can seat up to 6 passengers and they charge a day rate that may differ according to the type of tour. Obviously, it’s much more economical if traveling with a small group, but we felt it was value received. They will customize tours to your interests and needs; they do not require a minimum number of days and are happy to accommodate single or half day tours. In the past, I have posted reviews of large well known companies and now felt that this company was also worth the time to review and put their name out there for travelers looking for a quality tour in the UK.

Our Trip to Scotland

“John- it has been a wonderful trip for this old lady! You have orchestrated the schedule as promised and given us so much more, providing all the relevant information and showing a professional concern for everyone throughout. Thank you so much for the sheep and collie demonstration - it was a dream come true! Top of the bucket list! You have made this trip for me!”

Private Tour to Leeds and Dover Castle

Dealt with Tanya to design and book a tour with 2 business associates on a free day at end of business meetings. She picked us up in London in the morning and drove us around all day in a nice vehicle, informing us all the way with our own earpieces. Very knowledgeable, pleasant, patient and flexible with what we wanted to do. Highly recommend!

A Week in Kent

Absolutely Fantastic Tour! I recently went to England and had a fantastic time in Kent with England Plus Tours. I can strongly recommend the company to anyone who is going to the UK. John picked me up at Gatwick Airport and in about an hour we were in Folkestone, a beautiful small town on the English Channel Coast. There was a huge choice of places to visit in Kent but I went for castles and medieval towns. I am so grateful to Tanya, who did guided walks for me in these towns and told me so many interesting and fascinating stories. Every day I was driven in the car owned by the company. The whole experience was so stress-free. We stopped for photos in some amazing villages with ancient churches, which Tanya really brought alive for me. Without a guide you would miss so much. The home-made food in the village pubs and tearooms was also a real treat, although I did need to go on a diet when I got home!
