This tour was a great value - efficient and informative way to hit all the witch tour stops. Seth’s enthusiasm and genuine passion for the history is contagious. Great way to kick off a day in Salem and appreciate the history of the city.

We had a great tour with Seth. He was incredibly knowledgeable about the history of Salem and the witch trials. The tour was perfectly paced and gave us time to take photos and ask questions. He also really clicked with our teenager and was able to keep all 3 of us entertained and engaged.

I went with a few girlfriends and we booked several tours. This was hands down the best tour, we learned the most on this tour. Seth is very knowledgeable about the city of Salem. He keeps his groups small, so it is a more personal experience. If you are going to do a walking tour I recommend this one above the rest!

Mary, Priscilla and Gabriel walked with Seth throughout Salem. Seth is very personable and informative tour guide. He covered a lot of information in the hour, including the architecture, the cemeteries, and the founding fathers. Also, he recommended Red's Sandwich Shop, a former meeting place of the Patriot's before the American Revolution. Great place for breakfast and the pancakes were as big as the plate.

A small group tour that was rich in history and fun for all ages in our group. Seth asked questions that helped him provide the best experience for three generations in our group. We followed the tour with the Witch Museum and it maximized our Salem experience! Highly recommend

Had an excellent tour with Seth on Friday morning (4/23/2021). My family and I planned a Salem day... even though we are lifelong residents. I thought I knew it all and Seth proved me wrong! I learned quite a bit on his tour. He was thoughtful, engaging and very knowledgeable about Salem... not only the Witch Trial history, but the Maritime history and about Salem in the "olden" days in general. His tour was not "gimicky" or over the top. My family had a great time. It lasted exactly one hour. Thank you Seth.

As first timers in Salem, my boyfriend and me did not know much history of the city, but going on this tour defintiely gave us some interesting background. Seth the tour guide was both knowledgeable and humerous. Overall, the tour moved at a great pace and was an enjoyable experience. Would reccomend to anyone visting Salem for the first time.

So glad we booked this tour! Seth is very knowledgeable about the history of this beautiful town and made it a very fun and memorable experience. He had us all chuckling quite a few times! Very personable and we learned about all the interesting historical landmarks in town. Who knew Houdini had a part in Salem’s history! The next time we visit Salem we will be sure to book with him again. Thank you for a wonderful tour ☺️
