We decided to take up the tour to enhance our visit to Canterbury and the guide, John, was very entertaining and certainly knowledgeable about the various buildings and deaths within them! If you get into the 'spirit' of the humour that John promotes then you will certainly enjoy the night. Takes about 1- 1.5 hours for the tour. Many thanks... More

Joined the Ghost Tour on a really cold night on the 3rd of Jan and had such a good time. Really interesting but all really good fun! The guide was excellent and made our tour!

Very nice tour, hilarious! I had lots of fun.. True stories of places that people say are haunted.. Now you get to know why they say so! However.. If you take th tour expecting to get scared, you won't! our guide was making all stories funny, so go for fun.. not for fear :)

Thank you for taking the time to review, Glad you had a 'good time' that's the idea, I did have some youngsters on your tour and did not want them to feel left out, so maybe it was not as horrific as you would have liked. Short of throwing a bucket of blood out of a every other window, like... More

The guide was a real character and immediately put everyone at their ease. Obviously knew an awful lot and passed the information to the tour in a great way. Would recommend taking the tour but pay on the night rather than on his website as there is a deal to be done face to face!!

Thank you so much for taking the time to review, it all adds to the balanced picture of the tour, you certainly sounded like you enjoyed it, and as it was such a cold night, not sure what the remark about paying on arrival rather than online is about, I don't charge more or less on line but if you...

I was not sure what to expect as this was my first ghost tour and I was not disappointed John was humorous & informative with his explanations of Canterburys ghost stories & history well worth a visit

Well on the same night you came someone else hated (see below) it so I guess I will have to assume you are like the 89% of the rest of the world who was there to have a good time, and we did as you were a very good 'Thomas Becket' and your son was very impressed with you. Thanks... More

Nothing scary,not even a tour as only walked 100 yards up the road listening to unrelated drivel and shouting to try and add some element of fear. Don't waste your money.

Having looked at the video (As I record all tours as a matter of course) of the night you claim you came I note that you walked off after only 45 minutes so I do not feel its a fair review, but it is at least balanced one, if I was just getting "excellent reviews" all the time I would... More

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
