Great Tour

This was a fun, 3-hour tour of Bangor with a discussion of how the town inspired Stephen King and how he has given back to the town. The tour was fun even if you are not versed in King's books, simply because it takes you through Bangor and the surrounding area. A great way to tour the city.

The King of Horror

My wife and I had a most enjoyable 3 hours on this tour. This is so much more than a tour of "inspired by" sites. Steve and his family's histories as well as their involvement in the Bangor community over the years is also detailed. If you have even a passing interest in King's work this tour will give you a greater appreciation of the author.

Amazing

The tour was amazing. Did the private tour which was much more intimate than the group. Will do this tour again if in the area.

Stephen King Fan Fave!

I purchased the tour for my fiance who is a Stephen King fan. It was incorporated into a Fall getaway and we were excited to participate... The pace was enjoyable. There were stops at appropriate times. The seating on the minibus was comfortable and not cramped. Sites selected for photo ops were very cool! This tour is definitely five star, even if you aren't necessarily a Stephen King fan...

A “Must Do” when in Bangor

Top notch tour takes you to areas relevant to Stephen King and his books. I did a self guided tour in the morning prior to taking this organized tour in the afternoon. The world of SK is infinite! You can’t beat visiting the subtle spots you would miss otherwise. The tour is run by a family that has known SK for years! The knowledge and trivia shared will satisfy any SK fan. This price is super reasonable and a definitely bucket list item for King fans. Just do it! I promise you will be beyond satisfied!

A great way to see the city of Bangor and learn a little bit about Maine. Book in Advance!!

This was a gem of a tour. If you are in Maine or if you are a Stephen King fan this is a real treat. Learning about Bangor Maine through the lense of this American author is a neat experience. The staff that run this tour really enjoy their work and it makes all the difference. One main tip though, if you do take this tour, either the regular or the private, you need to book in advance. I booked my October tour back in March and it was already pretty full. So keep this in mind when planning to take this tour. Definitely worth doing if you are in Maine. I came with my mom.

Really Fun Tour

If you’re a big Stephan King fan, just want to know about Bangor’s history, or looking for something fun to do, highly recommend the tour. Jamie is a great guide, really friendly guy and the tour was very interesting to see where a lot of famous works were inspired. It’s well worth the time and money.

Constant Reader

Being a constant reader for 33 years I was so excited to take this tour. Jaime is like a walking Stephen King encyclopedia. Tour was entertaining and I learned a lot about Stephen King’s life and Bangor history. This trip is a must for all constant readers and enjoyable for casual readers or those who just enjoy the movies based on Stephen King’s books.

Geek Your Heart Out

I’m a huge Stephen King fan and, for my bachelorette weekend, my dream was to go to Bangor, Maine and do the SK Tours of Maine tour of Derry. We had the best time. Jamie, our guide, was a delight and seeing Mr. King’s connection to the town and the town to his books was fascinating. A must for any King fan!

Take this tour, even if you don’t know much about Stephen King!

I have enjoyed many Stephen King books and movies, but my husband and son don’t know much about him. However, I’d read great reviews on this tour, so I signed us up for a private one, and it was totally worth it! Jamie took us on an excellent tour of Bangor, not only seeing all the Stephen King places, but also to some hidden gems in Bangor that we never would’ve known about. Our teen son also loved this tour. Highly recommend for anyone near the Bangor area!

We loved it!

My wife is an avid Stephen King enthusiasts. I, on the other hand, have never actually read one of his books. I have only seen the movies made from his books. That didn’t stop me from having an AMAZING time! I learned a lot and had to add a few books to my must read list. You’re guide is very knowledgeable to all things Stephen King and just had that personality that you could stop listening to. If your on the fence- DO IT! You will not regret. 🎈
