I was drawn to this tour by the other positive reviews and it did not disappoint. While I grew up locally, Jeff shared a lot of the history and filled in the gaps that the books and other tours leave out. His love of Salem and its content was a bright spot of the tour! I would recommend this locals... More

We were lucky - despite it being a sunny Sunday afternoon, we were the only two people booked on the 3pm session, so we had a private tour. Nonetheless, our tour guide Jeff didn't cut any corners, the tour took over 2 hours because he delved into all the stories of the past, trying to paint a comprehensive picture of... More

Incredibly informative and entertaining. Even my 10 year old only became the slightest bit board after more than two hours of walking and hearing about "history!" of all things! This is NOT some hokey "ghost" tour or campy "witch" tour, this is history interpreted by someone who cares a lot about it and has obviously done a lot of research... More

Hands down the Bewitched in Salem tour is the best tour I have ever attended. The strength is Jeff, our tour guide. There's a certain amount of glitz and glamour missing from this tour and it helps to explain why other tours had so many other patrons, while our tour had seven. Jeff gives a systematic explanation of not only... More

This tour was great! It was so informative, yet still fun. Some of the other tours give false info on the witch trials but this tour was so historically accurate. The tour guide, Jeff, was a gem he was so sweet and funny and he knew his history so well. We had a small group of about 10 (some tours... More

Everyone in my family loved this tour, including our guide William. He is a local to Salem, which made it even more special to everyone, because you could tell he truly cared about the history and was very knowledgeable. I highly recommend this tour to anyone looking for an amazing and magical experience through Salem! Defiantly one of the highlights... More

This walking your was great. It covered so much information about salem's history. The tour was small and personable. I highly recomend it. Worth every penny. I suggest going on the tour at the start of your trip to give you ideas about what to spend your time on during your trip. Again, great tour! Learned and saw a ton!

One of the nicest tour guides that I have ever met- he took us all over Salem and knew a lot about the different places (he grew up there as a child so this is his hometown). I appreciated that he was able to talk about what a witch actually is, the history of each of the Salem Witch trials'... More

My partner and I spent one day in Salem last week and took Jeff's Bewitched After Dark tour. Jeff is an incredibly knowledgeable local who did a spectacular job at creating a narrative around the vibrant history of Salem, not exclusive to the infamous witch trials. As history junkies and academics, we appreciated the depth of his knowledge and particularly... More

A very comprehensive, accused-by-accused historical picture of the Salem witch trials using the Salem Witch Trial Memorial as a back drop. Loads of history and personal insights from Jeff, who is an excellent guide and story teller. Just the type of person you want to guide you through the history of Salem. Highly recommended. Oh, and listen to his recommendations... More
