You will see places that Stephen King has lived and worked, places that have inspired his stories, and actual film locations from his movies. Each tour is hosted by a member of the Tinker family. Stu has been featured on A&E Biography, City Confidential, People Magazine and many other national media outlets. As the owner of the original Betts Bookstore, he has over 20 years of experience selling Stephen King books and memorabilia, and is recognized as one of the leading experts on King Lore and legend, and has lived all his life in Bangor, or as it is known in the Stephen King world, "Derry," Maine. Stu started doing Stephen King Tours for King fans and researchers over 18 years ago and has enjoyed introducing many new readers to the area that has inspired so many great books and movies. Stu and Penney's son Jamie (after retiring from 26 years in the Navy), has now joined SK-Tours as a guide, and shares his vast knowledge of the Stephen King world with our guests also.
