Our guide, Joe was great! We did the 6pm tour on a very cold evening but he didn’t appear cold at all! He was lively and very informative. Our tour was complete with a local dog visiting the group (twice) it was great! We would highly recommend this tour company!

Sean, our guide, was both knowledgeable and hilarious in his story telling. We had no idea we were going to get so much more history of Salem than just the witch trials. Would recommend this to everyone (even kids)

Michael was a great tour guide! He was funny, fun and accurate with his information. It was nice to hear a few stories of Salem that aren’t about the witch trials. Loved it!
