The tour was very good! I Loved the compelling and interesting Ghost stories which were all different and mysterious in their own way. I also loved John Hippisley's humor. It was so funny, I wondered if he is a Ghost Hunter or a comedian. He attached us with his comedic style and story telling abillities and made you forget that... More

Well worth the price of admission, John knows his stuff and entertains throughout. I lied about seeing a ghost.

We were visiting Canterbury for our anniversary this weekend and despite heavy rain we decided to venture in to town to meet the Ghost Hunter or Glosbe Venator (he informed us that he used to translate Latin in his previous job at the Cathedral). Unfortunately for him, but not for us, and I suspect very much due to the inclement... More

I booked a private tour for myself and new husband on our mini-moon trip to Canterbury and it far exceeded our expectations. John was extremely knowledgeable of the city's history, and entertaining with the right mix of jumps and scares. I would recommend to this to all, definitely a Canterbury must.

I didn't know what to expect when I booked up for the tour........well I was a "hop-on" and paid on the day. I found John to be insightful and very amusing. He mixed with the youngsters and old ones alike. He also dealt with some local undesireables in the correct manner. My daughters are coming down to visit me soon... More

A brilliantly entertaining and masterfully executed ghost tour. John is a consummate professional, and his mix of black humour, historical facts and chilling tales makes for an excellent evening. I highly recommend it!
