Too many first-hand personal stories from the tour guide about witnessing books "mysteriously" falling off shelves, etc, as well as anecdotes about similar things that happened to the tour guide's friends and acquaintances. Yawn.

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.
