Our tour guide was really knowledgeable and had pictures to show while he spoke that brought the story to life. We were specifically looking for a tour that was history mixed with hauntings and this tour was perfect. We loved when he would introduce a place in the city and told us to try to go later- we went to a couple of the suggested places and they didn’t disappoint!

Everything we were looking for in a tour!

We had such an amazing experience on this tour! Ryan was a fantastic tour guide and got a great pic of us too! This tour had everything we were looking for and wanted to learn more about from the witch trials, to ghost stories, and the history of Salem. He also gave us great recommendations including a breakfast spot that we went to for coffee for the next two mornings we were there. We had a super unique tour as we were the only people there most likely due to the fact we went during off season in May but we were still super excited to get a one on one experience. There were times when we wished he slowed down a little with some of the info he gave us but still was a 5 star experience and we found we were still making historical connections while exploring Salem after the tour.

An absolute phenomenal tour of Salem! Sean, our tour guide, seamlessly wove history with local stories, and made the night spectacular! This tour touched on many local landmarks, and Sean pointed out many areas of interest, even spots that had been modernized and told their story. I went on this tour with some close friends and came out of it entertained and feeling I had learned a lot about Salem.

A must in Salem
Sebastian_C

This was an amazing, eye-opening tour. Our guide, April, really knew her stuff and opened up a box of knowledge about Salem that anyone interested in the town's history should have. It is not all about the witch trials (which are still an incredible part of its history) but about sailing, love and betrayal, belief, survival... All of the human experience spectrum. All thumbs up!
