  • A great experience which tells the story's of the Canterbury Tales. However Viator need to make it clear that you need to book a time directly with the tour guides!!!!!!!!! We were lucky we only had to wait 20 minutes.

  • We had a great time, the actors were well informed and the tour was smoothly run
