Private Tours of South East England

John is a fully insured private driver-guide and 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 teemed with British history.

The county of Kent is where medieval and Tudor kings used to hunt and where several queens used to call their home. – Leeds and Hever castles are just two examples. In more modern times, Sir Winston Churchill and his family used to live at Chartwell which overlooks part of The Weald of Kent; where Anne Boleyn caught King Henry VIII’s eye.

John shares local insights and stories whilst showing his guests some hidden and picturesque villages in Kent, Sussex and Surrey, which are inaccessible to large buses and coaches. – Many London-based tour operators who do not live here, including private drivers and chauffeurs, aren’t aware of these beautiful hidden places.

John is fully vaccinated. Additionally, John England Tours is certified as ‘Good To Go’ & ‘Safe Travels.’ These are Industry-standards by VisitBritain and the World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC) assuring visitors businesses have clear processes and are following 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. It will be a pleasure to share it with you!
