Our guide gave a fantastic tour. He was so knowledgeable about Salem’s history and so engaging. The tour flew by with his interesting facts and story telling ability. Just the right about of theatrics to keep Us engaged and entertained!

Good price, good way to walk around the town and see more than the pedestrian street, tour guide was enthusiastic; however, felt the history, stories of spirits and innate need to believe in spirits was underwhelming based on expectation.

Sorry you didn't fully enjoy the tour, but it sounds like you didn't take the correct tour. The Midday Ghost Tour is all ghost stories and paranormal activity. If you wanted history, you needed to take the history tour at 11:30 am or the Witchcraft History tour at 4 p.m.

The tour was overall disappointing… I booked it especially because it mentioned visiting a cemetery but when we got to the cemetery we only looked at it from across the street and did not go into it. What’s the point of a Walking tour in Salem which is steeped in history and not walking through an old cemetery.
In addition, the tour guide although pleasant and knowledgeable did not offer very much information while walking from one destination to another. In fact they were long gaps where she said nothing and we just followed behind her. It would’ve been helpful if she had talked as we walked to our next stop with vignettes or history or some thing other than silence. I was very disappointed in the tour and would not recommend it or go on it again

Hello Darlene, The cemetery is available for you to explore on your own completely free of charge. Our tour guides don't always go in the cemetery on tours as its open to everyone.

Tour was very boring, Woman giving tour was dull, tried to crack jokes that were not funny at all and then begged for laughs and an applause. "C'mon that was a good one give me some laughs". The poem and skit she did with one of the unfortunate others taking the tour was dreadful and extremely uncomfortable to watch. Her stories and information were completely different then what we heard on our other tours which were consistent. Do not recommend this tour.

We signed up to go to learn more about the spooky stories in the town, but I felt like if I googled Salem Ghost Stories, I could've given a better tour. The spots we went to seemed oddly selected, our tour guide was very kind but some of the stories lagged on and he wasn't necessarily the best at storytelling. We wouldn't recommend this to others.

Having just moved to Salem, we wanted to take a fun tour to understand the spooky stories visitors come to town to hear. We left 20 minutes in, and that’s being generous. The tour guide was a terrible storyteller and quite uncomfortable. I could have given a better tour with no information and no preparation. Would 100% not recommend.

We had a fantastic time on our tour! For people not staying in Salem for some of the evening tours, this is the perfect blend of history and ghost tours. Our guide was extremely well informed about the area and the different important figures, and she made the tour fun. Would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for something to do in the afternoon in Salem!!

This was a great tour. Our tour guide was informative and was in character! He took us to spooky spots throughout the town . My skeptical 14 year old daughter said it was her favorite thing that she did while in Salem. It’s definitely worth it!
