We had Heather as our tour guide and she was amazing! She really got into character and you could tell she had a passion for what she was telling us! It wasn’t as spooky as I thought it would be, more historical than I expected, but we still enjoyed it!

Theatrical Experience of Salem Mysteries & Murders
Jackie_C
, Jul 2022
The Mysteries & Murders tour was excellent. Our host Paige was amazing. She made everyone feel welcome and included. We learned lots of history in a way that was theatrical and entertaining. We did the 7 pm tour which was great, it started to get darker as we were ending. Good for pictures but we might try a later tour just to get more of the spooky aspect in the dark next time. We highly recommend this tour and Paige.

Not good. We left the tour early
Caitlyn_P
, Jul 2022
We didn't love this tour. The guide was perfectly nice, but would have been better for her to be a kids tour guide. There was too much theatrics like she was trying to keep a bunch of 10 year old interested. There were many many times I could understand what she was saying because she talked in a higher voice as part of her act. There were actual whole stories I didn't understand or hear all all. We actually left the tour about 30 minutes early. We were pretty excited about this tour not being wll about the Salem witches, but we were pretty upset we wasted our money. Would not recommend.

Good morning. I am sorry that you did not enjoy your tour. However you have posted your review to the wrong business. I have checked every single manifest for this tour for the last two months and there is no Caitlyn P to be found. This review is fraudulent.

Informational but not fun
Elizabeth_L
, Jun 2022
She had interesting information but the presentation was lacking. A more theatrical presentation would have been more fun. It was not her fault but there quite a few guests that were rude during her presentation. She tried to joke with them to diffuse the situation it seemed to have made it worse.

Boring and not worth $30
Aprill_K
, Jun 2022
I do not recommend this tour. It was long, drawn out stories about nothing. Several in the tour snuck away during the tour. Our tour guide was a great story teller but the actual history/murder mysteries were so long at each l location that interest was easily lost. We also snuck away before the end. Definitely NOT worth $30!!!
