Concierge Questions: Do I Save Money on an Organised Tour?

Concierge Questions: Do I Save Money on an Organised Tour?

This is a question we are often asked and the answer is a big yes!

Aside from the services included of an expert guide and the fact the whole day is organised for you – you will save a fortune by taking a regular tour v making your own way.

Let us look at an example of say a day out to Leeds Castle, Canterbury Cathedral and Dover Castle:

Leeds Castle, Maidstone, Kent, England

Beautiful Leeds castle in Kent

These are the entry costs if you go alone:

Leeds Castle £19.75

Canterbury Cathedral £9.50

Dover Castle £16.50

Train London to Dover / Canterbury to London £46.10

Bus Dover to Leeds Castle / Canterbury £8.60

Total = £100.45

We have used this example as price comparison, in reality with the time it takes on bus and train it would not be possible to fit into a day.

We found a great value tour that includes all this at only £74, plus also has a Free River Cruise and London Walking Tour, worth £30.
