Private South East England Day Tours

English Castles Tours, Estates, and More

John is a fully insured private driver-guide. He’s also the proud owner of John England Tours.

As a local professional tour guide, John lives in South East England and is able to give guests easy access to historical places that are absolutely teeming with British history. Check out his Private Tours of South East England.

The county of Kent is where medieval and Tudor kings used to hunt and where several queens made their home, of which Leeds Castle and Hever Castle are two exquisite examples. In more modern times, Sir Winston Churchill and his family used to live at Chartwell House which overlooks part of The Weald of Kent (the spot where Anne Boleyn caught King Henry VIII’s eye).

John shares local insights and stories on his private tours of England’s south east, showing his guests some hidden and picturesque villages in Kent, Sussex, and Surrey which are inaccessible to large buses and coaches.

John’s intimate knowledge of the region means he knows the beautiful hidden places, those rare gems, that many London-based tour operators, drivers, and chauffeurs simply aren’t aware of. He is one of the hosts at Arival, (a leading global professional community for the tours and activities sector), and a group expert, (guided tours), in the All Things Tudor Facebook community.

John is fully vaccinated and John England Tours is certified as ‘Good To Go’ & ‘Safe Travels.’ These are industry standards granted by VisitBritain and the World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC) that re-assure visitors that the businesses they are using have clear processes and are following up-to-date tourism and Government COVID-19 safety guidance.

Our personalised private day tours provide you with a memorable experience of the authentic England many visitors miss. Explore John’s local England and please get in touch if you have any questions. It will be a pleasure to share it with you!
