I went for this thinking that it would be a really spooky tour with scary passageways, encounters with 'ghosts' and so forth. I was thoroughly disappointed. The tour guide takes you along the streets, stops at various points and tells stories of people who died many centuries ago and of their 'ghosts' roaming the place and the related events as... More

Highly recommended for all ages and abilities (a nice gentle walk) I hope this tour... More

We went on this tour in a group of six on a Saturday night and what a fantastic time we had. The tour guide was hilarious; how people can review the guide as being offensive and rude is a joke in itself. The jokes and quick witted remarks had us all in hysterics, it is clear the guide is well... More

Booked the tour as part of my wife's birthday celebrations and it helped to make the night. John, the tour guide, has a fantastic sense of humour that will keep you in stitches all the way round. Can't recommend it highly enough!!

Having lived in Canterbury nearly 10 years, I've always wanted to check out the Ghost 👻 Tours and having visiting guests for the Easter Weekend seemed like the perfect time to learn some history and have fun! John (the dry witted and extremely hilarious ghostly guide!) kept us thoroughly entertained throughout and delivered spooky sights amidst well balanced humorous tales.... More

My boyfriend took me for a jokey birthday present. The history was interesting and the tour guide very funny. I think it also helped that we had a large group of people that actually joined in. All in all a fun and enjoyable experience.
