“A good way to get to know Canterbury”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 June 2014 via mobile

We always try to join a guided tour when visiting historic cities to find out as much as possible about our surroundings. This tour didn't disappoint. The guide was knowledgable and told us interesting facts about our whereabouts. My only grumble is I would have liked a more comprehensive choice of tours. This was brilliant but only covered a fraction of Canterbury. It would have been great to hear about other buildings and related stories In the wider Canterbury City. Overall I would recommend anyone new to Canterbury to get themselves on this guided tour. You won't be disappointed.

“Great tour of Canterbury”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2014

Our tour guide Pauline was very knowledgeable and informative. Canterbury is a lovely old town, but there is so much more to be found out from a "proper" guide!
Definitely worth the time and at £7 good value too.

“Learn about a city in 90 minutes!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2014

Thank you Liz for keeping us so well informed about all the things we were seeing during our walk on Saturday. We learnt so much about Canterbury and were amazed at the depth of knowledge. No question fazed you and it was all so interesting I could have gone on for another 90 minutes. Well worth the effort!

“Great way to spend time in Canterbury”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2014

Great tour of the City with Andrew our guide on 30 May. Very knowledgeable and entertaining. Very worthwhile and for £7 (or slightly less for we oldies) a great introduction to the City. Thoroughly recommended.

“Very entertaining”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 May 2014 via mobile

For £7, this tour is great value. We had a very enthusiastic guide who spoke very clearly, was very well informed and entertaining. He kept us moving without rushing us and I learned much more than I would have from a guidebook. It's the little anecdotes that are the most enjoyable. Definitely recommended.
