Booking a private tour gives you more freedom to tailor your guides commentary to your parties interests and tastes. You might prefer a more relaxed approach whereby you ask your guide to tell you about specific scenery and buildings that interest you, rather than the traditional commentary. However you wish to hear the commentary all of our chauffeurs are very knowledgeable about Canterbury, its buildings and history as well as local folk lore and ghost stories!
