Well we have just finished a great 80 minutes walking around Canterbury being entertained by the lively John. A whirlwind tour full of jokes and need the ability to laugh at yourself and others!! Only reason not 5/5 is we were expecting A darker ghost experience, but would not change John or this tour. Highly recommend to all families .

The Pickwickian figure of John greets you outside Alberry's and slips effortlessly into the slick and entertaining patter that carries the tour all evening. His knowledge of Canterbury's psychic ephemera is encyclopaedic, and his humour is never-ending. Even my teenaged daughter was entertained which alone makes the entry price more than worth it. I definitely recommend this tour, even in... More

I'm not sure anymore. This thrilling entertaining trip will leave you with memories for a lifetime. Do you dare experience Canterbury's dead?

Attended on Saturday 27th June, I laughed for the whole hour and twenty minutes. I live locally but learned many interesting historical facts that I didn't know before. This tour is a mix of history and ghost stories with a whole lot of humour thrown in for good measure. If you're looking for something interesting and fun then this will... More

Excellent and entertaining evening in the company of John the guide. Tailored perfectly for the participants who ranged from old to young. We opted for the tour and meal option from the website and were not disappointed. Escorted to the venue by our gentleman guide where everything had been prearranged and taken care of. Glad to have taken part as... More

The tour was lighthearted.. brilliantly detailed, interesting and fun. Well worth a go for a delightfully different evening. I went with my partner.. but I will definitely be returning with my son (11).

Having grown up in Lordswood, Chatham and studying at Canterbury Christ Church I have always been interested in the history of the great city. Last night I travelled from Thurrock, Essex where I now live with 3 friends to experience this tour and we are so glad that we did. I found it by chance on groupon and we had... More

Recommend this for a great nights entertainment, John the guide is very funny, and has a brilliant knowledge of Canterbury and its past. It's amazing how you can walk through a town or city and not realise what little carvings on buildings or architecture there is and what it means!! Throughly enjoyed the tour

John is one of the most charismatic people I have met. Expect fun, facts and a fabulous evening. You'll never see Canterbury in the same (half) light again. A great night out. You're in safe hands with this Ghostbuster!

John is knowledgable and treated us to a trip full of humour. The time flew by and we would definitely come on this tour again. No ghosts joined us, to our knowledge, but John kept the evening moving with jokes and local historical information. A great last night to our weekend in Canterbury and great value for the money.
