Amazing knowledge and patience!
Oct 2021 • Family
We contacted Sam overnight and he was very accommodating and arranged a tour the same day. It was my 9 year old (who has Asd and loves history) and myself. Sam’s knowledge, enthusiasm and patience was incredible. He spoke with a freshness that would never let you believe he’d done it hundreds of times before. Highly recommend!!

Very knowledgeable
Jane was our guide on a very rainy morning. She knew Canterbury well , adapted her patter as we had already had a guided tour of the Cathedral itself . Jane made people feel at ease and managed to engage with each member of our group. The pace was sensible and we learned a lot about the history of Canterbury. I would recommend this walk.

Really enjoyed this entertaining and interesting tour. Our guide owns the business and was very knowledgeable, bringing Canterbury to life for us. Even though there were only two of us, he still ran the tour. It meant we could ask a lot of questions, which he always knew the answer to. Highly recommended.

The Real Canterbury
Aug 2021 • Friends
The tour that Sam Hurn gave was such an eye-opener. Our visit to Canterbury became so much more interesting because we got to know the true details of every account in surprising “corners”. It is very obvious that Sam adores what he does because it shows how he effortlessly told each piece of history, not to mention very kind for allowing me to jump in last minute! Definitely made the Canterbury experience more colorful.

Canterbury tales...

What a wonderful introduction to Canterbury. From the start Sam was so accommodating in finding the time that fitted in with our schedule. Sam was a fountain of knowledge as he walked us through a thorough history of Canterbury, taking us through streets we just wouldn’t have ventured to and pointing out plaques etc we just wouldn’t have noticed. His pace was relaxed and he was able to answer any questions we had. I particularly loved the little antidotes. Who knew Bagpuss was created in Canterbury. All in all a totally wonderful experience that we can’t recommend enough. The only negative was we were left wishing we had a longer stay.

Our city walk was brilliant. We saw things we never would have spotted. Sam was very knowledgable and informative. He is a very friendly, relaxed guide. Loads of time for us asking questions and knew the answers. Cannot recommended this tour enough.
