Thank you for the great review!!! We are so excited that you enjoyed it and this review made our day! Excellent tips to use earbuds, Salem is crowded and loud in October (as you know) and earbuds improve the experience. Thank you for taking our tour!!! We hope to see you on more tours in the future, we are now in Boston, Salem and plan to expand through New England this winter.
