Dr Thomson's Tours of Historic Canterbury

About

Let Dr Andrew Thomson be your guide to history and culture either side of the channel: from the gardens, castles and churches of South-East England, to the battlefields, towns and countryside of Northern France, Belgium, Germany and the Netherlands.

History expert (History PhD from the University of Kent; qualified Guide of the Guild of Battlefield Guides), experienced guide and tour operator, Andrew (age 55) runs Dr Thomsons' Tours full-time.

Established in 1997, the company's guiding principles: to provide personal service, flexibility and enthusiasm. If you want not just to see but to understand the region, come with us.

We organise tours DIRECT with you, for you - we respond to requests (usually by email or phone) by proposing ideas, with prices and dates. We handle numbers from 1 to 100 - individuals, couples, small groups of friends, social clubs, companies, large organisations, conferences.

Taking up to 6 people in our comfortable air-conditioned Citroën C8 minivan or rental vehicle, we will explore the history of the region on foot, by car, and through museums. For larger groups we can use minibuses or coaches, or go direct by Eurostar high-speed train.
