A knowledgable guide who added humour to a very informative and atmospheric walk round lovely Canterbury. The whole family very much enjoyed it, and would recommend it.

Good tour and very illustrative with stories with a comical edge. Would have liked a few 'jump' opportunities but all in all a good tour

The stories were interrupted by really insensitive 'jokes' (about child abuse, rape or even recent terrorist attacks). We were disappointed as it was neither scary nor particularly informative.

Great tour, lovely night, with a perfect mixture of comedy and horror stories! Would definitely recommend this tour to anybody who is interested in the history of Canterbury, also in having an interesting and knowledgable evening. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Thank you!

Amusing, entertaining, enlightening. Some interesting facts mixed with a good deal of humour by this larger than life gentleman. A nice evening!

After the tour, you will look differently on Canterbury. The old city may be a cosy place today, but it has a long and dark history. Hippesley presents it in a very entertaining way.
