Our Salem Night Tour, in Salem, MA was a walking tour of the city, history, and historical personalities. Our tour guide was Courtney, and she was great. I truly enjoyed how she talked to the group - very friendly and congenial. She gave accounts of the history of the witch trials, people's motives, and payback! Her paranormals accounts made me...

I was visiting some friends up in Boston, and we decided to do a spur of the moment Ghost Tour in Salem. We got there a little late (7:59 for an 8pm tour). They do recommend that you arrive half and hour early, but thankfully it took a minute to check in. There were about 15-20 in our group, which... More

My three kids and I took a tour with Night Tours after having done a historical tour the night before with another group. Courtney was our tour guide. She was very personable and kept our large group entertained with stories of ghosts and malfeasance in historical Salem. Afterwards, she even voluntarily stayed over to answer questions and share spectre pictures... More

Very well informed and entertaining guide. I appreciated that he spoke with us and not just to us throughout the history tour. Hope to go back for the ghost tour.

Good tour guide, but there was way to many people on the tour. It was hard to see what he was talking about and while we were walking it was hard to understand him. He almost told too many jokes, I was hoping for something a little more of the spooky historical side.

We are glad that your guide was GREAT!!! Yay others from that same tour have left 5 star reviews. However we are sorry you felt the tour was large, we do our best to accommodate everyone, memorial day weekend is a busy one. All other tours were sold out, we will try harder in the future to accommodate all. More

Very well organized tour. A east walk even for people with bum knees and hips. Make sure you schedule your tour when Jeff is the tour guide. He is a registered historian, good at separating fact from hearsay and has that unique ability to make history come alive.

Tim was the guide for our tour of Salem. We definitely learned a ton and were pleasantly surprised to gain insight into the history of Salem outside of solely the Salem Witch Trials.
