Ken is an excellent guide who goes out of his way to ensure that the experience is everything and more than hoped for. His tour was the highlight of our time in Salem.

Best tour possible. Ken was an incredible host. He spent three hours with us rather than two. He was so knowledgeable, funny, answering all our questions, and even singing. My sister had difficulty walking. Ken was so considerate in waiting for her and making certain she was okay. A wonderful day!

It was a great small group and our guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. It was nice to have the history of more than just the witch trials, but glad that was still a part of it. Would definitely recommend, very family friendly too.

What a wonderful tour this was!!! I have been to Salem at least 30 times, so I know much of the history and the stories. Kenneth was able to broaden my knowledge and taught me a few new facts. We had a great walk with him, and he thoughtfully provided water for us at the beginning of the journey. He answered all of our questions, and thankfully, did not focus entirely on the witchcraft portion of Salem. He also went into the literary background, as well as the maritime history. It was a refreshing and welcomed change of a tour from the standard and stale all witch trials monologues typically given. Thank you for doing such a wonderful job for us!!!

I liked that the tour guide had grown up in the area. I felt this gave him a deeper, more personal connection to the history. The walking was easy. Enjoyed seeing the architecture. Overall, the city has a more residential look and feel than Cambridge or New Haven.

My only complaint, not about the tour but the city, was I was told there were only 2 public restrooms available - one in the museum which didnt open before the tour, and one in the mall. Retail and restaurant shops either did not have a public restroom, or they are for clients only. Surprising for a city with a lot of tourists.

Ken was very entertaining. He was thoughtful and respectful to all in the group. The group was around 20 which was a pretty good size. The information included history of the witch trials but other historical information as well. Well worth the money!


5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2017

We learned so much on this trip and our guide Kenneth was outstanding. I learned what I was taught in school about the Witch trials was completely wrong. Kenneth is so knowledgeable and loves sharing his knowledge with others. I recommend this tour to everyone regardless of age.
Thank you Kenneth for an amazing tour and making our journey to Salem so worth while! You're the best.
