Fun night

Don't go expecting to see ghosts... But you will learn some local history, and you will laugh, a lot! Highly entertaining. John obviously loves what he does and so did we!

This was very disappointing we only moved about 200 yards it wasn't a ghost tour at all. His jokes were awful and he was boring and looked scruffy. Made jokes about the crowd which were very bad ones. The comment made by someone else that he was the best joke is well said. A waste of money the only good... More

You may enjoy this tour if you can tolerate an hour of terrible jokes and constant references to members on the tour, Canterbury is full of interesting stories, but we learnt very little on this tour as the whole tour was run to allow him to get his cheap jokes in which many people may be offended by. I prefer... More

We did the Ghost Tour last week, as a small private group. Just such a fun and interesting night out. I work in Canterbury and had walked past many of the spots we stopped at, and had things pointed out that I would never have seen on a normal day. Fascinating history and a hilarious guide. Will definitely be going... More

Despite knowing Canterbury quite well we did learn and see some interesting unknown sights and facts. Whilst the tour in general was OK the guide made me feel uncomfortable with some of his interaction with the participants. There was also quite a while spent in prevarications so at times I was totally lost waiting for him to get back to... More

My girlfriend Emily and I went on the Ghost Tour and found it very interesting and hilariously entertaining. John's great stories and facts make you see Canterbury in a new way, and his off-the-cuff humour was laugh-out-loud funny. I would highly recommend to others.

Very good fun my girlfriend and I were passing through Canterbury and we've done ghost walks before so thought we'd give it a try. The tour guide has a great sense of humour making a ghost tour comical as well as spooky, giving a good insight to the bloody history of Canterburys street. Well worth spending the money for a...

Just left this tour and wanted to say what a fab time we had! Such a charismatic host who interacted with every single member of the tour and made my 2 kids 10yr old girl and 17yr old boy very much part of the show. Highly recommended for all ages and abilities (a nice gentle walk) I hope this tour... More

I bought a Groupon for this tour for my husband as a birthday present, he's always wanted to do a ghost tour so when I saw the offer u thought why not? We went along Friday just gone (17th) and there ended up being a pretty large turn out, John was very quick witted and was very knowledgeable of Canterbury... 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
