For a long long time I can remember seeing John out & about on his ghost tour. It has always been one of those "we must do that" things and on the 17/02/17 we finally went along. My son and I really really enjoyed it. John was very informative & I liked the way he got people involved. Very enjoyable... More

We had a tour on Saturday with John. He was entertaining and full of interesting knowledge. We have lived in Kent for over a decade and can't believe we hadn't done this! Would recommend to anyone.

If you want to hear about witches with the guidle periodically shouting "BOO" and how they were treated with no reference to the Canterbury Tales or Chaucer, this is for you.

03.02.17 Tonight's tour was good fun. I have been living in Canterbury for eight months now & the history of the city interests me. The tour is very informative & details a lot of little things that you would not otherwise see or know. I would happily do the tour again & reccomend it. Very good value at £10. Even... More

Sure, it's a little touristy - but it was fun! Even our kids (ages 10 and 13) enjoyed the tour and they're tough customers. Our guide had a great sense of humor and kept the whole crowd engaged. We had good fun and a lot of laughs. I definitely recommend it.

John was a very good guide but his humour wouldn't suit everyone....although my friend and I found him hilarious. It was interesting from both a paranormal perspective but also historical. Anyone expecting him to magic up ghosts though are going to be disappointed but also shouldn't be that daft!

The meeting spot was easy to find, and the tour was easy to follow. The guide dresses for the occasion, and all of the stories about different haunted buildings and historical facts thrown in made for a very interesting night. The guide made jokes and was entertaining too, so all in all, a great tour! I'd recommend it to anyone... More
