We met John in his regalia - really looked the part, and was so helpful to know we had found the right place. The walk was more of a casual saunter, and this was no bad thing. Really enjoyed the stories, John has certainly done his research, and well planned to include most members of the group. Also a good... More

What there was plenty of: - flatulence jokes - 'scares' by sudden raising of the voice - not very funny jokes about Germans and Dutch (members of the party) - mumbling (not helpful, especially not for foreign visitors) What there wasn't much of: - ghost stories - enthusiasm - taste

I pre-booked tickets for me and my friend ready for her visit for the Halloween weekend. We both like a good fright and I was especially excited because there was going to be a walk on Halloween night! The tour guide looked the part in his top hat as we set off. The guide was very knowledgeable about Canterbury's history... More

This was a brilliant tour which included the perfect mix of information, spookiness, humour and sheer entertainment. I would wholeheartedly recommend it to others and want to return for another go, this time with my children. I thou roughly enjoyed the experience.

The tour didn't turn out to be like I expected. However, this didn't turn out to be such a bad thing in the end. Rather than a 75 min tour packed full of ghost stories across the numerous streets of Canterbury, we got what felt like a stand-up act across a few of them (with ghost-y parts thrown in). Although...

We called on the day and was offered a private tour for the same price. The effort sermed the same as he would with a big group. My parents and I were very impressed. Lots of detail and drama in the stories and delivery of them.

We went on this Ghost walk with John this Saturday. We really enjoyed it but I've read a few negative reviews on here that say otherwise. As long as you don't take it too seriously you'll have a bit of fun. True, it could take in more of the city, but it is what it is! I would recommend this... More
