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

We had spent the day visiting Canterbury whilst on holiday in Hastings. My wife had already planned some of the things to do during the day including the ghost tour. We were all very tired come 8pm as we had been walking about all day. Our guide arrived at the meeting point dressed in a black cape, top hat and... More

John was very kind in agreeing to do a bespoke tour at very short notice on a Sunday evening. My husband and I had family staying over from Australia and when I mentioned the Ghost Tour to them, they (excuse the pun) jumped at the chance! John has great historical knowledge of Canterbury and this, along with ghostly stories from... More

Well what a lovely review I was so glad you had fun, ghosts are not there to be scare of they are there to be respected and to lean about heir origins. Thank you for taking the time to share you views, and please do tell your friends too. Kind Regards John Hippisley More

This tour was amazing! We were a group of nine and had been looking forward to this all week! We were definitely not disappointed! We had two young children with us aged eight and nine and they absolutely loved it. Our host was outstanding! He made the tour very interesting and funny. He involves the group with the tour which...

John is a very good tour guide I have been on a ghost hunt before but not one in Canterbury. There are places that you walk past and can go into them but all the places that you pass have stories attached to them from tiny tim's tea room to the cathedral. There is even jack in the green on... More

John was very knowledgeable about the area and was able to answer all our questions thoroughly! The stories were fascinating and John was very kind in doing a bespoke tour for my mum and myself. Would highly recommend for a thrilling, very entertaining evening!

Let me start by saying, the host is the nicest man in Canterbury bar none. Had I never been on a ghost walk I might not have compared it but like many I love ghost walks and do them fairly often. One thing I was struck by was the lack of ghosts! There seemed a shortage of stories connected to... More

You meet in a dimly lit area of town having paid in advance (or if you turn up and pay the guide in cash you may get a discount). Your guide is clearly a man of some intelligence but on this occasion he was happy to play the fool. He does not offer a tour in the normal sense of... More

At least you took the time to review so more people can make an informed choice, every tour is different as every tour has different people on it. You appear to have personally not enjoyed it but on the night you came I got the review above (5*) so I don't know what i could do to change. Regards John... More
