“Best Walking Tour I have ever been on...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2010

Wow - if you do one thing in Salem do this tour. The owner/host guides could not be more knowledgeable, gracious or engaging. You will learn so much and be so interested in what you learn. Salem's historic past is so very fascinating and this tour truly delivers. All ages will enjoy it. Well worth the time and the money.

“Unmissable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2009

On our short trip to Salem we were looking for a tour with real stories and real history. We were so lucky to find this tour which was just what we were looking for. Susan is a wonderful story teller and had us captivated with tales of local notoriety, that were even more spine-tingling as we stood in the dark at the actual locations. There was also plenty of humour during the tour which made the evening a very enjoyable and relaxed experience. Highly recommended. The truth really is more scary!

“Best Tour in Salem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2008

This tour was the highlight of my recent trip to Salem. Our tour guide, Susan, was knowledgeable, professional and charming. Not only was she engaging, but her passion for Salem and its rich history was evident. If you want the BEST Salem history lesson, along with some good exercise, I highly recommend you take this tour!
