Susan's integration of literature passages with physical locations made the tour feel very relevant. It was quite interesting to hear the voice of the writers while being in place.

Susan braved a rough and rowdy pairing of rain and wind on our tour. Even though it was physically miserable due to the weather, it added to her storytelling and brought us into a sensory experience of the Marblehead she was describing from the literary books she read from. It was an immersive experience filled with fun and interesting tales that stoked our imaginations about an older time in Marblehead. We also did a lot of walking and Susan took us through nooks and crannies that we would have never discovered on our own.

Susan is a life-long Marblehead resident and literary expert. She was so accommodating on our walking tour, providing unique storylines to go along with each stop and answering any questions we had. Make sure to bring a camera, as the views along the little harbor and coves are incredible! I would highly recommend this tour for anyone looking to enjoy a wonderful community on the Massachusetts coast.

This the best way to see parts of Marblehead you’d never find on your own. The literary angle adds color and perspective. Susan is lovely and authentic. There’s a charm and character that adds so much to the experience. Yes, it’s a very special walk and look at a great town. But Susan makes it so, so much more.
