"Our book club had such a great tour of Canterbury with our guide Sian. She gave us a literary tour and talked about the various authors who had been influenced by this beautiful Cathedral town. Sian was knowledgeable and took her time with us. We thoroughly enjoyed it!"

"Our guide Lynsey was really wonderful! Such a great communicator, with a loud, clear and expressive voice. Superb delivery of beautifully put together and fascinating stories about the places we were seeing and the people who have been part of Canterbury's history. Thank you Canterbury Guided Tours and thank you Lynsey!"

"Back from our school trip to England I would like to thank you, your team and the guides for organizing the guided tour of Canterbury so neatly and for giving my students, my colleagues and me a great educational tour of wonderful Canterbury. We had a great day contributing to the lasting impressions the entire tour has given us."

"Lindsay was OUTSTANDING great knowledge, humour and massive history.
She spoke in a very clear manner with excellent diction and great voice projection despite the school groups trying to drown her out.

What a great start to our trip to Canterbury and a pleasure to have undergone a tour conducted by Lindsay.

Thank you very much, perhaps you would pass our comments onto Lindsay."

"We are back from our trip to Kent and I just wanted to give you some feedback.

First of all, thank you for your kind and very helpful personality. It really was easy and a pleasure to deal with you.

Next: a very big thank you to the four tour guides we had. They were lovely and the kids really liked the tour. We asked them to write a short feedback (positive and negative) and your tour guides were a real hit. The kids understood the language and enjoyed the day. So thank you very much for all your effort and brilliant work. I could have listened to our guide for ages and would have followed him for the rest of the day.

Take care and hopefully we can come back next year!"

"Ian was fantastic. Our Aachen friends were so impressed and engaged that we ended up extending our tour a little longer. You can see that Ian was passionate about what he was telling us, which made it even more interesting for us. I learnt so much about the city and can’t believe it took me this long to go on the tour. Will definitely book another.

Thank you for organising it, especially at such short notice."

"We were calling in at Canterbury on 2nd May 2022, on our way to a short walking break in Kent, as it’s a place we had never visited. We booked a guided tour at 2pm as we thought it would be a good way to see a good section of the city in the time we had available & it didn’t disappoint.
Our guide, Ian, was informative & entertaining & we thoroughly enjoyed his stories & history of Canterbury. We would highly recommend this tour & it is great value for money too. "

"We very recently booked a personal, Huguenot focused tour of Canterbury through Canterbury Tourist Guides. It was excellent. We were asked if we had any specific requests to be included and our guide, Doreen, who was superb, researched and added these to our tour about which she was already extremely knowledgeable. We were kept well informed of proceedings leading up to the tour and the company responded promptly to all contacts that we made with them. Thank you to all who were involved and especially to Doreen."

"Just wanted to say how much we enjoyed the tour yesterday with David who was an entertaining host and kept everyone interested with the right mix of history, gore and revelry.
Saw the City in a new light and learned quite a bit - even though the ducking stool origins are probably not for my wife!"
