Wat je gaat doen

The Tour is based on the History of the City, and its architecture it also covers several aspects of English Language, and the origins of phrases we take for granted. The duration is around 2 hours, and it's a gentle walking pace around the city. Canterbury's history stretched back over the millennia, from pre-Roman settlement to the present day city bustling with visitors, students, and locals alike. The footsteps of Pilgrims, and parsons, are etched into its fabric and the tour takes you in their footsteps. The tour is fully accessible for anyone in a wheelchair or with mobility issues, which given my work with the elderly I feel it's important to be inclusive. You will not find this tour in any guide book. All content is exclusive to this tour.
Please note under 14 Year-olds will be admitted 'free of charge', but must be accompanied by a full paying adult, unaccompanied children will not be admitted.
Re Parking and transport questions please use the online messenger and I can help with where to park, walking directions, bus routes and or rail routes. I am only a message away and ready to help answer any questions you may have.
The Meeting Point is right by the Canterbury Christchurch Gate, signposted from all over the city, no more than 10 minutes walk from all the car parks and the city stations.
Other things to note
As it's a walking tour, on city streets, just be sure to wear comfortable walking shoes and be sure to dress for the English Climate, i.e. on a sunny day bring an umbrella, just in case. If you are suffering from suspected Covid19 symptoms please let the host know, and we will issue full refund.

I have been conducting both day and night time tours in the city of Canterbury since 1991, although my background is in Hotel Management, my ethos is always about putting my clients first. I am a writer and producer, and also volunteer for the Blind and Older people, to help them with everyday life. I live within a mile of the city centre and can offer tours at short notice, so if you're staying and need to book me just call me and I'll be there.

Waar je naartoe gaat

Canterbury's history stretches back over the millenia, from pre-roman settlement to the present day city bustling with visitors, students, and locals alike. The footsteps of Pilgrims, and parsons, are etched into its fabric and the tour takes you in their footsteps. Starting in the Buttermarket, we trace the name of the city of Canterbury, and its place in English History, from St Augustine's arrival in 597 to the Saxon Churches, and the Normans.

Excelente recorrido lleno de anécdotas interesantes y detalles que te perderías de cualquier otra forma. Muy recomendable. Comunicación excelente y todo tipo de facilidades, incluso nos recomendó donde comer y fue un acierto.

Not what I expected. I expected to learn more about the history of the city, the cathedral (only discussed how long it has taken to clean the exterior), and other history as described in the "What You'll Do." John's tour mainly focused on origins of phrases, some architecture, a lot of jokes. The total tour walking distance was about 0.3 mile (.5 km), I feel like we could've covered a lot more in 2 hours.

John is a true eccentric and entertainer! He knows every inch of Canterbury and could tell us the history behind any building, or even a particular door or window on a building. The tour is especially good if you are interested in architecture/ historical buildings - we learnt a lot and I was astounded by how much there is to see if you know what you're looking for. A very enjoyable afternoon, thanks John.

We had the most wonderful experience with John as our guide, delving into the hidden mysteries of Canterbury. We got far more than the usual tourist repertoire and John blew our minds with his depth of knowledge, his storytelling, his engaging wit and unique character. His style of presentation was funny, quirky and highly entertaining. He took the time to get to know us and went above and beyond to personalise the tour with thing we would find interesting. We believe we found a national treasure in John and cannot recommend him highly enough. P.S. Ask John to tell you the story about his spiderweb hat!

Our family of five (plus dog) had a private tour with John today. He’s a font of knowledge with fascinating stories and not just about the history of Canterbury but also linguistics and amusing tales. We learnt a lot and left wanting to know more. A beautiful city with an interesting history.

Simply put, the tour was amazing! We recently moved to Canterbury and our goal was to have a bit more insights about or city, John managed to not only provide it but to surpass our expectations. The way he delivered the information, the attention to details and random historical fun facts about the locations he was showing made the tour truly amazing.
