    The history represented in Dover Castle is well presented and easy to understand. The tour guides and staff were friendly and helpful. The site itself is beautiful and gives any visitor a good taste of English history. As an American visitor, I highly recommend you come see this wonderful place, but give yourself time for a thorough tour.

    It’s an amazing place! Lots of things to see. We arrived around 12 noon and spent more than 4hours in the castle but I didn’t get enough. The staff are very helpful and friendly. At the arrival they gave us a map and some useful informations too. There is a carpark, a restaurant and also lots of places to have a snack or just simply sit down and enjoy the wonderful view.

    The castle was very interesting, thoroughly enjoyed it. However, the area where we were to meet was nowhere near the castle, very confusing. We stayed on the shuttle bus from our ship and went in the gate with all the other passengers. The gate attendee looked at our tickets, wasn’t quite sure where we were supposed to have met but let us in anyway.
