Not the best

We didn’t go to all the places that were listed online.. I’m not sure if it was because it was late and the tour guide didn’t feel like going or if he forgot but it was cut very short. He also got very sidetracked talking about personal beliefs and things about himself and issues going on in the world and I really don’t feel like I left with any new information. I was so excited about this tour and I feel a little letdown.

We where a little late for the tour and missed it. When I call the phone number you have the guy I spoke with was NOT accommodating at all. He could not even let us know where are group was or would be to join up with them. This was the most expensive tour we went on and it was wasted. I know we could not get a refund but at least accommodate us some how. Not very happy!!!!

Excellent tour. I was happy to see that while the witch trials were mentioned here and there, it wasn't the main focus of the tour. Instead, it was more of a Weird History tour, which as someone who has taken several walking tours of Salem, I was thrilled to see. Also, the tour guide's sarcastic wit and dry humour was positively delightful.
