An amazing tour with John, who even came out on a Monday night at my fiances request as a treat for my 30th birthday. It was brilliant to get a private tour of Canterbury and hear so many amazing, spine chilling stories. My first ghost tour ever. It won't be my last.

We've had a great night. The guide is great at storytelling and he has a great sense of humour. I am very glad I booked this tour for my short stay in Canterbury.

Eye-opening mini-tour of Canterbury's ancient streets - streets you've shopped in, but have not actually SEEN. This characterful walk reveals the sometimes shocking stories these places have witnessed, and brings the past to life through those who perforce lingered beyond their own times.

John turned up before 8pm to meet us at Alberrys with other members of the group. He is a larger than life character, full of wit and humour...very entertaining! Enjoyed some of the tour outside walking thru canterbury but felt that it was missing certain aspects. Some of it needed to be inside like in the cathedral or other places... More

Well that's a mixed review, I'm not sure what "visual aids" I could have brought along, I've see a chap with a folder full of photos but that only works if there are a few people on the tour, in my case I do most of my business with big groups (50+), I appreciate the comment about not "going into...

Wanted to see a bit of Canterbury in the evening and thought we would book ourselves onto this tour. Very light hearted and though provoking. Our guide was very quick witted and involved the whole group.

Went to Canterbury for a getaway weekend, and booked this tour for something different to do, such a good tour! Learnt lots about Canterbury history but not a boring way, was entertained the whole way through, the tour guide should be a comedian, well worth booking!
