GAIL

On Progress with Anne Boleyn Tour 2022

"Philippa and BHT never disappoint! Our Progress tour had particular challenges because it coincided with the national mourning for Queen Elizabeth II. But Philippa took care of the glitches like the pro she is and again delivered an amazing experience. This is my 3rd tour and I’m signed up for #4 in 2023. Very well done!"

Maria

The Anne Boleyn Tour 2022
"We had an absolutely fabulous time on this tour! From the moment we stepped on the coach, we were taken care of in style. The accommodations at Hever Castle were luxury, all while staying at a medieval castle. All the staff at Hever were top-notch - we wanted for nothing. Philippa and Gareth, our expert tour leads, were knowledge but also engaging and personable - making the tour seem more like friends on an extraordinary outing! The day trips to Hampton Court and The Tower of London were perfectly planned with private tour guides and built in personal time to visit particular areas/sites on our own, at leisure. Our favorite part was dressing in Tudor Era clothing for a day and strolling around the grounds with Hever Castle as the back drop! Just amazing! This tour was a once in a lifetime trip that I hope we can do again! Thanks Philippa!"

Mary

The Anne Boleyn Tour 2022
"We really enjoyed The Anne Boleyn Tour. Staying at Hever Castle was wonderful. Such a lovely place! The food and service was really superior. We had behind the scenes private access to the Castle as well as a dinner in the Great Hall of the castle. So exciting. The tour guides were very good at all of the places that we visited and having three Historians to give us their insight made everything even more special. Thank you Philippa for arranging everything!"
