The most awful ghost tour ever... He was rude and crude, made especially worse as there were children present. We walked a very short distance- I Imagined for 1 1/2 hours that we would walk all round Canterbury, but not so. He talked about 'the popes visit', not sure what that has to do with ghosts of Canterbury! And it... More

I can't please those that hide behind the anonymity of a computer screen I guess, considering according to your own review this was 'the worst you've ever seen' you must like mine to take the time to review as there are 'no other ghost tours reviewed' by you so, I guess that proves you don't get out much.

I have just returned from a fantastic evening out in the city of Canterbury, taking my family on Ghost tour in the city centre. The host was extremely knowledgeable regarding the city and was very funny, I would definitely recommend taking this tour and hearing of the macabre and chilling history. Great interaction with the crowd this man is obviously... More

We decided to take up the tour to enhance our visit to Canterbury and the guide, John, was very entertaining and certainly knowledgeable about the various buildings and deaths within them! If you get into the 'spirit' of the humour that John promotes then you will certainly enjoy the night. Takes about 1- 1.5 hours for the tour. Many thanks... More

Very nice tour, hilarious! I had lots of fun.. True stories of places that people say are haunted.. Now you get to know why they say so! However.. If you take th tour expecting to get scared, you won't! our guide was making all stories funny, so go for fun.. not for fear :)

Thank you for taking the time to review, Glad you had a 'good time' that's the idea, I did have some youngsters on your tour and did not want them to feel left out, so maybe it was not as horrific as you would have liked. Short of throwing a bucket of blood out of a every other window, like... More

The guide was a real character and immediately put everyone at their ease. Obviously knew an awful lot and passed the information to the tour in a great way. Would recommend taking the tour but pay on the night rather than on his website as there is a deal to be done face to face!!

Thank you so much for taking the time to review, it all adds to the balanced picture of the tour, you certainly sounded like you enjoyed it, and as it was such a cold night, not sure what the remark about paying on arrival rather than online is about, I don't charge more or less on line but if you...

I was not sure what to expect as this was my first ghost tour and I was not disappointed John was humorous & informative with his explanations of Canterburys ghost stories & history well worth a visit

Well on the same night you came someone else hated (see below) it so I guess I will have to assume you are like the 89% of the rest of the world who was there to have a good time, and we did as you were a very good 'Thomas Becket' and your son was very impressed with you. Thanks... More
