Dover White Cliff Tours offers sight seeing tours in and around Dover. Take a novelty 40 minute boat ride around Dover's bay, on a historical wooden boat built in 1935. On the trip you will receive a commentary from the captain and any children who want to will be invited up to steer the boat. Or take a short bus ride up into Dover's Cliffs to see some amazing hidden history: St Martin's gun battery (WWII defensive structure), the Drop Redoubt (one of the biggest Napoleonic fortifications in Europe), Dover's historic town and much more; all with a running commentary. Get the chance to stand on the white cliffs and walk off into the sun.

I read mixed reviews before doing this small bus tour. However, All went to plan. We were met by Richard as planned via email. The tour took in some of the military history of the town, views of the cliffs and local knowledge. Our party...More

Disappointing is the word. They only take you around the harbour, so you only see what you can see from the promenade. The white Cliffs of Dover are around a couple of miles from Dover, so If you are expecting to see the white Cliffs...More

20 pounds pax for boat and bus ride. A decent trip for the price you pay. Richard the captain was a kind gentleman. He let me steer the boat for a while. Its just a ride within a cordoned off area within the harbour. Boat...More

As asked, we called the captain the day of our scheduled tour — 10 times, in fact. He never answered once, and several times it didn't even have a voicemail option. We understand that trips are weather dependent and would have understood if he had...More

Lovely fully loaded bacon roll before our boat trip which was a very good experience. Good views of the cliffs and Dover Castle and a very informative historical commentary from the Captain. Overall a great experience and worth the money.

Great quick trip around the harbor so you can see the cliffs and Dover Castle. Stayed inside harbor so it was fairly calm. If you want a longer open ocean cruise this is not for you. Friendly people and a good price for what you...More

The cliffs are amazing but go for a walk in stead of this scam. The departure was late. They just saw you a bit that you can perfectly see from the ground. To be honest the tour operator and the girl who was with him...More

The place is quiet, great sightings, the landscape was very fresh and natural, really beautiful to just sit, and eat food while your there.
