“canterbury visit”
Reviewed 11 June 2012

Took the Dutch version with us for our Dutch friends, wonderful way to see the city. Have a break when you want to, and the tour is very informative and interesting and gives you a 'feel' for the city you wouldn't get without the historical information... just the right length too, there are two tours you can choose from, we did the short one only so we'll have to come back some other time to do the other one! Definitely recommend doing this Audio Tour of the City. Also gives you discount when using other attractions in the city such as the River Boat tours

“Excellent Experience”
Reviewed 25 May 2012

We came across Canterbury Audio Tours while walking along the River Walk. They allowed us to rent their players overnight so we could start our tour first thing the next morning. The map was easy to follow and we spent the good part of the morning leisurely following the tour. When we finished we felt we had seen Canterbury.

I would highly recommend this tour.

“Brilliant!”
Reviewed 18 May 2012

I spent a few hours in Canterbury on a coach tour this week and wondered how best to use the time. My friend and I decided to take this audio tour and we're so glad we did! The map was extremely well designed, the commentary interesting and helpful and we thoroughly enjoyed the whole thing. The tour took us to parts of the city we would never have found by ourselves in the limited time available. We also took advantage of the discount offered in a local cafe with the tour. I would thoroughly recommend it.

“Fantastic day!”
Reviewed 26 April 2012

My husband and I had a fantastic day in Canterbury thanks to Canterbury Audio Tours! We had no idea how hisorically interesting Canterbury is. We loved being able to stop and have coffee, or linger at a certain point. The freedom and no pressure aspect of this tour was perfect. The staff were helpful, knowledgable and very friendly. We will be recommending this tour and most certainly participating again ourselves very soon.

“Great winter's day out”
Reviewed 1 February 2012

As residents of the city we decided on a winter activity just before Christmas when the city is quieter. Having lived in the area for a few years it was lovely to learn about and see places that we would never have known about otherwise. It was a thoroughly interesting day for both of us. Definately one to return to with the rest of the family. As a side note, i sometimes struggle with walking distances espcially on uneven surfaces, but the tour caters for wheelchair users and so was perfectly accessible for me. Don't let the walking aspect put you off. A+.
