Justine was informative and entertaining. And the tour was a fascinating blend of history, haunting and lore. As well as a chance to visit parts of Salem we never would’ve seen otherwise.

Sean was a wonderful guide, extremely knowledgeable. He had a great way of incorporating the history with the salem myths. He also was a very sympathetic narrator; explaining life in the 16th C through both the lens of today (thoughtful touching on the role of enslaved people, sexism, religious bigotry, etc) as well as the context of the time. A fun tour; we felt that we lucked out that we got sean. That's saying a lot; consifering it was very rainy and cold and we still had a great time.

April was the best! Great tour. We heard history and sprinkled bits of ghost stories which were my favorite. We walked around for about 2 hours and 15 minutes so I appreciated the extra time and care.

Our tour guide’s name is April and she knew so much about Salem’s history. She answered any question the group had and presented the tour with a smile and an amazing attitude. You could tell she is very passionate about her town’s history and wants to share it. After this tour, I gained so much more knowledge about the town’s history and will definitely be coming back.
