My teenage daughters and I really enjoyed this activity. Our guide, James, was full of energy and one-liners, keeping the tour fun and engaging - not scary by any means. (If anyone was born to entertain, it's him.) The value is great, 90 minutes' worth...More

We took this tour on a beautiful fall afternoon. Nancy, our tour guide, was very well educated on the subject matter (she's a history teacher!) and made it very entertaining, as well as informative. Thoroughly enjoyed it.

Both of the tours we took ( Witch History and nighttime Ghost Tour) were great, but by night tour, we were "toured out". We had taken a historical walking tour in the morning to get oriented to Salem then our combo tours. Much of the...More

Our tour guides were excellent. They were very informative and encouraged the guests to ask questions. They were considerate to the guests that walked a bit slower due to what ever reasons. One thing I did notice, you see a few of the same spots...More

I've been on every walking tour of Salem. This was fair, at best. The guides don't seem very enthusiastic about the tours they guide. Still, I think it was an ok tour for someone who hasn't done any of the others offered in Salem.

Did the night ghost tour & 1692 Witch tour trials. Both guides were very informative and put their own spin on presentation. Learned not only about the witch trials, but also a lot about local Salem history.

Hello. So sorry we didn't see this until now. All of our tours are about one mile in length. We do stop several times on the tour, but it varies due to the guide. We may stop 6-8 times on the hour tour and 10-12 times on the... More
