    The tours I give in the chilly weather are the most challenging to me because I empathize with my guests discomfort. I’m already deep in study this January to bring new interest to the tour. In gratitude, Kenneth

    We thoroughly enjoyed the tour. We had 2 kids with us and were worried it would be too long. But the gentleman that led the tour was very knowledgeable and provided an entertaining tour. Greet way to get a good flyover a legendary part of the US before wondering on your own.

    Kenneth brought the history of the area to life... and he can sing! We're learned things we'd never heard before, from Pilgrims to witches. Great tour.

    It is always a pleasure to interpret The history of Salem for guests as well versed in Salem as you both are. You took in the McIntire district with such obvious interest and your tone was contagious, which then sparked joy for each and everyone of us on the tour. In gratitude, Kenneth Glover
