Having just moved to Salem, we wanted to take a fun tour to understand the spooky stories visitors come to town to hear. We left 20 minutes in, and that’s being generous. The tour guide was a terrible storyteller and quite uncomfortable. I could have given a better tour with no

Good price, good way to walk around the town and see more than the pedestrian street, tour guide was enthusiastic; however, felt the history, stories of spirits and innate need to believe in spirits was underwhelming based on expectation.

Responded Nov. 6, 2019
Sorry you didn't fully enjoy the tour, but it sounds like you didn't take the correct tour. The Midday Ghost Tour is all ghost stories and paranormal activity. If you wanted history, you needed to take the history tour at 11:30 am or the Witchcraft History tour at 4 p.m.
