Went for a work evening out with a small group and had a great time. Saw some of the spooky areas of the city and learned a lots of really interesting local history. The guide is a real larger than life character with impeccable knowledge and some good gags up his sleeve. Perfect for cynics and believers alike, if you... More

We REALLY enjoyed our our historical tour of Canterbury with Canterbury Ghost Tours! We only live locally but we learned so much that we never knew about the city and saw so many things that we had never noticed before! Our guide (John Hippersley) was amazing - so well informed and also very amusing! Would definitely recommend this to anybody... More

Historically Informative With a Scattering of Comedy If you are visiting Canterbury, or you live here the Canterbury Ghost Tour is Historically Informative and delivered with a scattering of Comedy. And something you should try. WARNING: Aching from the laughter.

Loved seeing/learning about things I walked passed many a time, without even giving them a thought. Great to keep it all a bit edgy too!

John's tour is one of the best things to do in Canterbury! We live in Canterbury and brought my mum for a night out. We all absolutely loved it, had a giggle and learned a lot. We liked it so much we also did his day time tour of Canterbury which was brilliant! He showed us places and views we... More

I absolutely loved this tour. It's a bit of fun with some good facts and laughs. Would recommend it to any one. Also would recommend Johns day tour of the city. He is a lovely guy with a wealth of knowledge that he take great pride and pleasure to share with you.

I had done this tour before however last time I had taken 5 young children on a private tour so the theme this time was very different. It's clear the host can quickly change his script to cater for different audiences. I plan on taking 5 business colleges next month and wanted to see how it appealed to adults- seemed... More

A nice outdoor tour, with lots of anecdotal grim tales and lots of light-hearted laughs. The ghost hunter is a character and the tour can be real fun if you get into with the right attitude. Pineapple!!

If you're in Canterbury and you get the opportunity to go on this ghost tour for heavens sake DON'T. £10 to hear a load of fart jokes from a guide full of his own self importance. Very little in the way of ghost or historical information but lots of utter garbage. In a city the size of Canterbury the guide... More
