Well worth doing, friendly and informative. It made a big difference to our weekend to have an understanding of the history of Canterbury.
The historical factor...
Jill_M, Oct 2022
The historical factor about Canterbury, Thomas Beckett, the black prince and the cathedral. Great guide who was very knowledgeable
Enjoyable walking tour.
Maria_C, Nov 2021
The guide was very knowledgeable and amusing given such a huge timeline. It is the gossipy back stories that bring a place to life.

Excellent walking tour of Canterbury. Pauline was a lovely guide, very knowledgeable. It was the perfect length (about an hour and a half) and covered the key areas and history of the city. Would highly recommend booking this tour.
Response from Host, Feb 2022

Mark_A, Jul 2021
Adrian was very knowledgeable and passionate about his tour. It was very enjoyable and would highly recommend it. Great value for money. The attention to detail was amazing
Doreen was a great guide....
Nathaniel_W, Jun 2022
Doreen was a great guide. Route was fun and covered a great spread of info. You get to go into the cathedral grounds but not inside.
Response from Host, Jun 2022
I am so pleased that you enjoyed your walking tour with Doreen. We give the only walking tours that are allowed to go into the precincts of Canterbury Cathedral. There is so much to be seen and stories to be told from the outside, it is quite a privilege.
Very Informative
Robin_C, Aug 2021
It was a very interesting tour, informative tour guide, i thought there might have been more things to see and hear about, most of the last 40 mins or more was about the cathedral, which if you wanted to know about that, you would go and see it, a little to much time spend talking about that. The weather was good, which made it better, a very large group so some people were getting left behind.
Great guide
Paul_B, May 2022
