Awards For Canterbury Historic River Tours

Carey Miles and the team receiving the 2015 award

Canterbury Historic River Tours are proud to have achieved many top awards and accolades over the past several years. The recognition we have received is testament to the hard work and passion of our guides, our high company standards and our commitment to exceeding expectations in all aspects of our guests' experience.

We are the proud winners of Luxury Travel Guide's 2017 European "Unique Tour of the Year", awarded to us in their 2017 European awards. We were also highly commended by Visit England in the 2016 Visit England Awards for Excellence, and during 2015 the company was placed as a finalist in the 2015 Beautiful South Awards for Excellence in the category of tourism experience of the year. The company was also placed as a finalist in the 2015 Group Travel Awards, as voted for by readers of group travel magazine. As one of the minnows of the contest, we were very proud to have achieved this in competition with some of the true giants of British tourism. In addition to this, in the same year the Company was awarded Visit England's top national accolade of Best Told Story for a second time! Receiving these awards has been a wonderful way to celebrate the hard work the staff have put into providing our visitors with an excellent tour.

Finally, in 2008 Canterbury Historic River Tours was entered in the South East Tourism ExSEllence Awards, in recognition of our excellence as one of the South East's most enjoyed visitor attractions. We were very proud to have achieved the position of Runners-up although we have of course strived to win this category in the future!
