“As we were walking away from a … tour, we encountered this gentleman relating stories of paranormal events to a couple sitting on the stairs of a building on the way back to our hotel. He was so fascinating and entertaining that we had to stop and listen. We joined the tour and loved the stories, the commentaries and the knowledge of Kenneth.” “I would recommend this tour to anyone who has a real interest in the paranormal history of Salem.” -Alan Rabinowitz

“Kenneth Dyke-Glover was excellent. The weather was threatening so my wife, daughter, and I were the only people in the tour, but Ken gave his all nonetheless. My wife Patti said it was the best Salem tour ever. Ken has an excellent voice, and was very personable and knowledgeable and… sinister… in a good way. We loved it, despite a little drizzle.”
