This Tour with Mykaela is a Must for Salem Visits
Nov 2021
I'm a big fan of spooky walking tours when I travel and Mykaela was one of the best tour guides I've had. Her stories were engaging, entertaining and educational. I also enjoyed the diversity of content from general Salem history to the witch trials to ghost stories. I learned so much and the tour really helped me gain such an appreciation for Salem on such a short trip. I would highly recommend this walking tour. Just remember to wear comfortable shoes and bundle up!

Excellent Tour!
Paige was an outstanding tour guide who brought history to life. She rapped, sang, and shared many details about Salem’s history. Even the rain couldn’t dampen our enjoyment of this tour!

Facts and Fun in Salem
We did this tour yesterday and it was amazing! I highly recommend it! Make sure to request Paige as your tour guide. She was very knowledgeable, friendly, and entertaining. She really made the whole tour come alive with her enthusiasm and humor. I learned all the cool stuff about Salem history and of course the witch trials. So many interesting facts and sites to see. We had perfect weather for this time of year only sprinkled a bit. It was chilly but we were ready for it. Remember to dress appropriately for the time of year you visit and wear comfy shoes! It's a walking tour after all. If you are in the area, do this tour.
Thank you Paige for making our trip to Salem so much fun! We loved your energy, you are hilarious. Would love to tour with you again sometime. Awesome job! (Don't tell the Mass....locals😉)

Mykaela was fantastic!
Nov 2021 • Couples
We made the brave choice of attending the tour at 6:30 in November. It was cold but our tour guide Mykaela passed out hand warmers, which was so nice and thoughtful. The tour itself was informative and Mykaela did a fantastic job conveying the history and other stories. She was willing to answer any and all questions and was even nice to the hecklers walking by who just wanted to be annoying. 1000/10 HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

The history and hauntings walking tour was well worth the price of admission. Our guide was knowledgeable, engaging, and humorous throughout. Would recommend to anyone interested in the history of the Salem Witch Trials and general history of the area.

Salem tour day … Where they burned or hanged?
Mykaela was our guide for the Salem tour. The tour started on time and Mykael took us through the different points of interest in Salem. Mykaela maintained group control and security throughout the journey. The information provided was informative, with data and some anecdotes. The closing of the tour at the memorial of the victims was solemn and Mykaela brought a good point in the closing, we cannot forget the story, if we do not want to repeat it.

I highly recommend the tour and if you have Mykaela as the tour guide, you will have a plus.

Job well done!
