Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We had the delight of going on the 90 minute tour with the wonderful Sam.
Sam is a brilliant tour guide and is very passionate about Canterbury and it's history. His engagement with the children was excellent pitching the information just right and responding to their questions and surprising answers to his.
Would definitely recommend if you want to find out more about this beautifully historic place.

We had an amazing experience exploring city of Canterbury with our tour guide Sam. He is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about history and this city. It’s great to do this tour early insure morning before tourist crowds fill the streets. It felt like we had it all to ourselves!
We’ve seen lots of interesting places, buildings and have heard many stories related to this place. Some places we would never come across unless it would have been with this tour. We know so much more now and can’t wait to come back and explore in the future!

We can thoroughly recommend this tour, Jane was a guide with an encyclopaedic knowledge of the city of Canterbury’s history and the Cathedral, which she conveyed in an accessible and engaging way. Jane also gave a a good steer about where to have lunch.

My guide Sam was very friendly and knowledgeable about the history of Canterbury. I was shown parts I would never have known to look for and learned many things about the different stages of Canterbury's past Sam also pointed out some good places to eat whilst here.

We spent 90 minutes wandering the streets of this amazing city with Sam who did an excellent job of improving our understanding of the history of Canterbury. Everyone visiting Canterbury should do one of these tours upon arrival! From Dickens to Chaucer and the Cathedral to Westgate Tower, he knew it all and made the 90 minutes so informative and enjoyable.
Thanks so much Sam for fitting us in to your busy schedule.
