    Paige was an awesome tour guide! I brought a group of 12 high school students on the tour and they were well entertained. Paige was enthusiastic and knowledgeable.

    Our tour was with Michaela and we had a great time. A real mixture of history with some great spooky stories. The tour covers more than just the Witch Trials, expanding to periods before and after this, which really brought Salem to life.

    Mikaela was an awesome guide. I loved hearing about all the history. Very interesting indeed. I think the 2-hour tour with no bathroom breaks could be a challenge for certain people (typically is for me!) We went end of November and froze our toes off. The hand warmers the company offered were a much needed nice touch. There were a lot of tourists, most places were pretty populated and it was low season. I simply cannot imagine how busy it gets during Samhain/Halloween. I would go back to see the rest but in the summer.

Yes, winter months can definitely be on the chilly side. We would recommend coming in May or September for the warmer weather and being less crowded. Next time you’re in town check out our Mysteries & Murder tour! Please come back and see us again soon! All the best, Beth and Mykaela

    I wouldn’t say anything was memorable. We showed up late but the tour didn’t start till 10 after so we were great full. However, it was freezing outside and raining. Me and my friends were shivering and couldn’t pay attention to the stories, not that they were all that interesting anyway. I don’t think I’d give this another shot but I’d recommend going on a very nice day. Raising your voice, doing a “crazy scary” laugh and random jumps does not make anything more interesting and that’s pretty much all the story was. We left about an hour in hope this helps before you book.

    We traveled as a couple. It was during late November and freezing. Makalah (spelling??) was so thoughtful, she provided us all hand warmers. Super kind gesture!! Her passion and service to the community to share her knowledge of history was really impressive! Her heart was in it %100. I left the tour knowing more about the beautiful town of Salem then I’d ever had expected. Thank you!
