I will admit, my family almost avoided the tours after struggling to decide on which company to use and seeing so many other tours around Salem that looked tacky and boring. Elaine with Salem Night Tours was one of the best parts of our Boston/East Coast trips so far. We arrived well over 30 min early and joined her group to leave, and we finished after the groups that began after ours. She stayed focused on the topics but added in personality and humor to make it unique and lighthearted. She was honest and upfront about the stories and legends of the city and we could not have asked for a better experience. After seeing other night tours and groups, it was obvious that we had one of the best tours in town who was the best story teller. I even got a picture of a potential ghost! I would recommend this tour over any of the similarly priced museums around town.

My fiancé and I last minute booked this tour and are super happy we did! Walking the streets of Salem in October just as the spooky fun begins under the expert guidance of Bobby hearing stories and history of various locations throughout the city was amazing. I was nervous we wouldn’t hear much as the group was large but Bobby made sure to gather us all together at each site he shared stories about and always was super excited when there was the opportunity to stand in a “prime” spot so we all could best see the specific site he was talking about. He kept us engaged and always was available for specific questions from the group! The man who assisted Bobby (sorry I don’t remember his name) kept us all safe, helped us all cross the street together and kept the group together and was great! I’d recommend finding out when Bobby is giving a tour if you want a fun and informative experience!

If you are looking for a great tour, look no further. This one is it. My boyfriend and I just visited Salem and went on a night tour with Bobby Kerrigan as our guide. We had an absolute fantastic time listening to the PLETHORA of information this man had to offer. I could see some of the other (inferior) tours happening across the street or a block away and was so appreciative of having someone who is not in it for the gothy flare money gimmick. Bobby shows real passion and enthusiasm while explaining the fact/fiction of the history of his hometown. The sprinkle of silly “dad jokes” were a great touch to lighten up the mood after hearing some of the horrendous happenings of the past. Only downside (forgive me for being a Karen) was the inconsiderate guests of the tour who were busy talking/texting the entire time while others were trying to enjoy the experience. After the tour, Bobby stayed around to answer any and all questions and gave a shout out to other local stops worth checking out.

Our tour guide, Bobby, made this a very enjoyable experience. He was knowledgeable, funny and conscientious. Bobby paid attention to where everyone in the group was, kept us together, ensured no one got lost, and in the process, entertained us with all sorts of interesting information about the Salem Witch trials and other significant events in Salem’s history.

The company that runs this tour needs to do a better job hiring and/or training the guides. I am genuinely wondering whether there is a screening or testing process to make sure the tour guide is competent and qualified to educate and entertain a group of people.

Our guide, Sarah, failed terribly in terms of presentation quality and storytelling, barely had any connection with the group, and gave the impression of a novice guide. Sure, she was able to share a bit of historical info about each location but it was done in such a way that wasn’t engaging and felt boring, so the entire group quickly lost interest.

The Salem Night Tour did not live up to the price of admission but we still tipped our guide at the end of the tour as she repeatedly let us know that they do accept tips. Your experience may vary based on the guide assigned to your group.

Great walking tour in Salem Historic District!

Sebastian, our guide, was awesome and very knowledgeable of both
Salem historical past and paranormal facts. Sebastian brought us back in time with some of Salem dark past stories and his accounts of events were peppered with witty remarks.

We had a wonderful experience. The tour was well run. Sebastian was very friendly and he took the time to answer the questions that people had.

I highly recommend this tour with Sebastian as a guide. A must if you visit Salem.

This was a great tour for first time visitors of Salem, as it touched on both historical and paranormal (and even some Hollywood!) information. Sebastian did an excellent job providing the historical facts, and making the tour informative and enjoyable. His relatable and funny persona only added to the experience, and made the Salem Night Tour spooky, interesting, and authentic to Salems rich history.

Had a tour booked at 8pm on Tues July 27th. At 730 pm a thunderstorm descended upon the city. Thunder, lightening, pouring rain. Definitely unsafe conditions not only for their employees but people on the tour. Let's all walk around with metal poles (umprellas) in the air during active lightening!!! We left before the tour even started.

Look, I understand the whole "rain or shine" -- this was way more than rain. Torrential down pour, flooded streets, booming thunder, lots of lightening. And yet, they refused to call off the tour so they could keep the money.

They put profits over people. Not cool.

I tried to let them make it right by refunding me for the 6 people we paid for. They refused, stating their "rain or shine" policy. Well, now they can deal with my credit card company because I've filed a charge back. I did not receive the service I paid for & this scummy company has no right to keep my hard earned money by trying to force my family into an unsafe situation.

Steer clear of this tour operator.

This tour was not good. The tour guide gave such a broad overview that you didn’t really learn anything. She was so flippant about facts that you questioned her credibility. Some statements seemed flat out incorrect, such as, during the witch trial time period people has an average of 16-19 children. The tour group was uncomfortably large that it was hard to move around. We were often in cars and peoples way. She seemed to indicate we were places that we weren’t allowed to be, which seemed very unprofessional. Also, asking for tips at the beginning of the tour was tacky.

I arrived at the Visitor Center 10 mins early, I had to chase after my tour guide who did not acknowledge us running after her and 3 more people who came after me. She did not ask me if I had tickets or even introduce herself. At the first stop she gave us some history but did not tell us where we were. The second stop she stopped at the Witch House, gave us some history but then told us how the ghost stories are fake and the candle people claim they see in the window is just s reflection of the street light. Isn't this a ghost tour?! She should be playing into the haunted candle claim, not telling us its a hoax. After that she gave us some history about the Witch Trials Memorial but we did not walk up to it because it was slightly crowded, the tour guide told us we are here all weekend and can come back on our own time. The 3rd stop which was Old Town Hall, same thing, she walked us to the side and told us since we are here all weekend we can come back and see it another time. By this time I walked off the tour and gave up, waste of the little amount of time I had in Salem. I booked this 90-minute tour to see these sites during the tour, not be told to come back on my own time, the tour guide also mentioned her tours only last 45 mins.

WHAT! The Visitor Center?!?! The Witch House?! You got on the wrong tour! OH NO... We meet at 127 Essex Street... not the Visitor Center!!!!! You ran after a guide from the wrong company. You were at the wrong place! We don't visit the Witch House and our tours are 75-90 minutes, not 45. Oh no! In the future please check your confirmation email! I also am shocked they didn't check your tickets. This is very frustrating for us to hear about. Please contact us as soon as you can. We can hopefully get you onto the correct tour next time. If it makes you feel any better, at least you get a fun story to tell your friends about. On the chance that your confirmation email does say to meet at the visitor center, then check the name of the company. You may have left this TERRIBLE review on the wrong company. Our emails have "Salem Night Tour" at the top in green spooky bubble-letters. If that's the case, you can just delete it, and repost this review on the correct company's page. No hard feelings from us. We're just sad to hear about the poor-quality tour.
