If you are into history and wan to know what actually happened here, go on this tour. It's not sensationalized, it's about history. The tour guide lives here and gives you anecdotal information. He even tells you how the other tours exaggerate stories. Great time.

I am so glad that I checked Trip Advisor before visiting Salem. I booked this tour based on the reviews here. Not only does Jeff cover the witch history aspect of Salem, but he describes the many aspects of Salem's history. We had a very limited time to visit Salem and this tour was the highlight of the day. Time... More

We took the Bewitched After Dark tour with Jeff that leaves from this shop. So glad we chose this one as opposed to the many others offered in town. Jeff was not at all cheesy like many of the other costumed tour guides with fake British accents and he was realistic and honest about the legends vs. the facts. He... More

Salem is a great place to visit. There are so many great places to go, things to do and places to eat. Naturally, it's not a trip to Salem without a little Bewitching! With so many witch shops, tourist spots and psychics it can probably be a little overwhelming deciding which ones to go to. Let me help you out.... More

Jeff was awesome. We were hesitant to go at first but Jeff definitely had great stories and was not obnoxious like the other guide with the Afro and microphone. Jeff answered any question and was a fun guy. Only thing I would've added to the tour would've been a walk through the Howard st. cemetery. It's closed after dark and... More

This was one of *the* best tours we've been on, and certainly the best in Salem. There were only the two of us for the tour, and Jeff was incredibly knowledgeable about the city and its history. I loved the experiences he shared, and he was very careful to separate fact from legend. My husband went to school in Salem,... More

I've been doing the Salem touristy thing for 20 years now, and every summer I look for new and exciting ways to learn a little more about this great historical town. Hands down, this tour is one of best I've been on and Jeff is awesome!! He really knows his history about the Witch Trials and much much more. He's... More

With two teenagers in tow (16 and 19), I was hoping that the tour would keep their attention ... Jeff more than delivered! Arranging the tickets was made easy thanks to Pamela's assistance. Jeff was very welcoming when we arrived a few minutes before our tour time. During the walking tour, our party of four was enthralled and benefited from... More
