The tour guide was very friendly and very knowledgeable. He provided lots of visuals. He presented too much info that felt scattered all over. I left feeling overwhelmed with all the details.

Had a great walking tour- even despite the rain. Lots of great information that we (even as Salem residents) didn't know before. Guide was great with questions and steered the information he gave us around the questions we were asking. We'd definitely bring our out-of-town...More

NOT a ghost tour!! It's a historical tour on early Salem and the development of New England and the people who lived then. The tour guide is informative, interesting and wont derail when you asked him questions. He's very knowledgeable about all kinds of subjects....More

Children under 16 might get bored with all of the history. We do have a Youth fee of $10 for those over 14. Children under 14 are free. We do take $8 off the regular adult price for Youth ticket purchases.
