This was quite disappointing. The guide said she was about to retire, but she really should have done so before. She was relatively informative, but knew very little beyond what she had learnt; she was not a native of Canterbury. She retraced her steps to...More

We took the tour wednesday at 2pm and really enjoyed it. The guide took us to places we had not discovered and it was great to get her anecdotes about the history of each area. Making history come to life.

Terry walked, talked, herded and answered all our questions, even the obscure “why is this street called orange”. Always enjoy these walks and they give great insight into the area. Worth every penny.
