Peter saved the day and made our vacation begin in a wonderful way. I knew that the trek from Heathrow to Dover would be hard and tiring but when we learned about Peter i knew we could avoid the difficulty. Sure enough, our plane was late. But when we came out of baggage claim, there he was, smiling and waiting for us. When we arrived in Dover he took us to see the Cliffs of Dover before he dropped us at our hotel, just because he is such a nice guy. My advice to anyone who asks is, contact Peter, you will only be pleased. He is very professional and an extremely kind man who will be a treat to get to know. If we ever come back to this area we will definitely be contacting Peter again!!
We arranged our travel with Peter about 6 months before our cruise ship (Disney Magic) was set to end its cruise in Dover. Peter was easy to work with, confirmed our reservation by email before our cruise left and was there early waiting for us which was perfect as we got off the cruise a half-hour earlier than expected (8am). The van was in beautiful condition, lots of room, with water waiting for us. Peter was friendly and very professional. He took us a for a quick walk around Canterbury (and let us explore the Cathedral on our own) before continuing on to the Warner Brothers Studio / Harry Potter tour outside of London. He waited for us as we did the tour (about 3 hours) and got us to the airport with plenty of time to spare for our trip back to New York. Peter is not a tour guide (so don’t expect a lot of detailed history—which he is totally upfront about) but as a resident of Dover for 20 years can give you plenty of local information. It’s was the perfect way to end our Disney Cruise. Thanks Peter!
Peter has collected me from Heathrow and brought me home on 3 occasions late at night. Each time he has been on time, professional and courteous, making the journey comfortable and driving safely. I will definitely use his service again and would recommend him without hesitation.
Hired Peter for a return airport transfer to Gatwick for my elderly parents. All communications were efficient and friendly with all details thought of. My parents reported that the drivers were very friendly, caring, professional and the vehicle was very comfortable with cold water available. The trip was tailored to their needs so loo stops built in. The return journey is always a worry for them as the flight from visiting me arrives late in the evening so they felt very safe in the knowledge Peter would be there for them. Can't recommend enough and will use again!
Afternoon tour of Dover, England
We had a great afternoon with Peter this week in Dover! He picked us up at the Dover Priory train station, and took us around Dover for 2.5 hours hitting the highlights, such as the Dover castle, the Walmer castle, overlooks of the ferry port, the cliffs, the light house, Fish and Chips in Deal, and several more items. Peter was a great driver, lots of knowledge, and very personable. He pre-books early, so don't wait until the last minute to get on his calendar. You won't regret it!
Great personality and willing to help in whatever way he could!
Peter was prompt in picking us up for our day in Dover and Canterbury and even had a schedule printed for us to review. Because of the weather, he suggested reversing the route and going to Canterbury first, then returning to Dover. When we reminded him that we were going to stay over in Canterbury, he said "No problem," I'll just drive you back at the end of the day. It's not that far." That is great service! He knew the roads and the schedules of what we wanted to see and insured that we made every site on time. Professional in every respect, Peter is also an extremely friendly and nice guide who took so many pictures for us we lost count. To retaliate, I took a picture of him and am putting it in a book I'm making of our travels. We thoroughly enjoyed our time with Peter and would not hesitate to use him again the next time we're in England or to recommend him to anyone needing a guide or a transfer in the Dover area.
Transfer plus so much more!!
I found Peter when I was looking for someone to take us on a day tour between the end of one cruise at Dover until that evening when we took off again on another cruise segment and then finally we needed someone to transfer us to London after we returned to Dover two weeks later. We were so happy with Peter and felt so lucky to have found him as he fit the bill and so much more! First of all, he was so prompt with all of his emails to me which is important. Peters black van is impeccably clean and neat. He had extra touches like water, magazines, tictacs for our comfort. Peter was waiting for us on both of the pick up days very promptly at the port with a sign with my name. He printed out a little itinerary with our intended plans for the day trip which was especially nice for the couple who shared the cost with us. I had wanted to see the White Cliffs of Dover and take some good photos and also see Canterbury and the Cathedral. Even tho the first plan was to do the Cliffs first and then Canterbury, where he was also going to drop off the other couple before returning us to the port..... because of overcast weather Peter decided to take us to Canterbury first to give the White Cliffs time to come out of the foggy day. This made more work for him as he took us to Canterbury, then back to Dover Castle and Cliffs... and then the other couple back to Canterbury..... but he wanted us to have the best experience and his plan worked! He knew just where to go to get us some spectacular pictures once the sun came out. I appreciated this so much as I knew he did it because it was importAnt to me. On the second day with Peter after our final cruise leg, he was just transporting us to our London Hotel but offered to swing by a little memorial to the workers who died building the Chunnel because he thought we’d like to see it and it was on the way. Peter goes the extra mile in making your experience with him the best possible and I give him my highest recommendation. He is a very pleasant young man and you will be lucky if you have the occasion to use his services!
How to End a Cruise with No Trauma!
My husband and I ended a relaxing two week cruise faced with travel from Dover to the complexities of Heathrow. Fortunately we had booked Peter who made the transfer as easy as possible, He was very responsive by email prior to our meeting and was on time the morning of our arrival in the port of Dover. His car is comfortable and immaculate with water and magazines for the journey. Expecting to be dropped at the terminal, I was surprised and grateful when he parked the car and helped us get our luggage through the unfamiliar maze to our airline ticket counter -- and all with good humor. Thanks, Peter.
With Peter, no worries
On time, accommodating, professional and friendly would summarize the travel experience with Aspect Private Hire. Peter's responsiveness to emails and other communications were appreciated.
Great Day in Canterbury/Dover
Our party of 7 we’re going to be in Dover for the day due to our cruise aboard Royal Caribbean Brilliance of the Seas. I found Peter, the operator of Aspect Private Hire, on the intranet. Peter immediately contacted me when I inquired about how to spend the day. It was important for us to see the main sights without actually touring a castle. We had seen plenty of castles while on the cruise and didn’t want to physically enter another one. After much communication Peter did not disappoint. Peter emailed me two days before to inform me that he would be waiting for us as soon as we docked. When we arrived, Peter met us promptly. We first went to a high point in Dover where we could overlook the port, the cliffs and town. Next we were off to Canterbury. We arrived early enough to be the first to ride the river cruise. Peter showed us through the highlights of Canterbury and gave us time to pick up souvenirs before we were off next to Sandwich and Deal. In Deal we grabbed a quick bite while enjoying the English Channel. Next we went to St Margaret Bay, a photo stop at Warmly Castle and then the Lighthouse. Every place we visited after Canterbury there were no large tour buses. Just the locals enjoying the sunshine. Our final stop was in Dover very close to the cliffs. Peter certainly made our day. He was very knowledgeable of the area. Peter catered to making our day most enjoyable. I highly recommend Peter and Aspect Private Hire when visiting Dover/Canterbury area.
Fantastic - Professional, friendly and on time. Highly recommended!
We hired Peter to take us from Gatwick to Dover. Peter showed up right on time and the van was clean, spacious and very comfortable. We had a nice ride to Dover and talked with Peter who is very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. Peter also knows the back ways to avoid traffic which is a huge plus in this area. Wi-Fi was provided for the kids which is a big benefit when taking a long ride. Peter even waited to make sure we were all set at the bed and breakfast before leaving. We would use his service again without hesitation. Highly recommended.
