Ken is Fantastic!! A great guide, with an extensive wealth of knowledge about Salem and Salem's history. A riveting tour, which was so interesting we didn't even notice the two hours fly by! This tour will take you to places not usually visited by other tours. Salem was hip-happening due to it being the weekend before Halloween, so we appreciated that when we gathered to learn about the different sites, that it was usually in a quiet, secluded area so that our total focus could be on Ken's words. The experience was "magical" and highly recommended!!!

Ken's our was the best thing about our day trip to Salem. With a great sense of humor he brings the history to life. It was rainy that day, and Ken had rain ponchos available for us. We appreciated how he made sure a tour member in a motorized wheelchair had a great experience too. Definitely worth every penny and then some!

My 14 yo granddaughter and I enjoyed the 2 hr walking tour that went at a comfortable pace. Ken very knowledgeable and passionate about the history of Salem and presented it in an entertaining way. We did have a little difficulty finding the him/the initial meeting spot given the mass of tourists that swarmed downtown Salem the day we were there. Appreciated that Ken steered us away from them as much as possible.Yes, I would recommend this tour!
