My best friend and I were in Salem to celebrate her birthday. We had traveled from South Carolina and were incredibly excited to do this tour. It did not disappoint! We had the best tour guide ever, Jeff! Not only did he wow us with his Salem knowledge, but just his general knowledge of history all around! Some of these kinds of tours can be boring, but that was not the case with Jeff! He gave us amazing stories, some of which I had no idea about. There is so much more to Salem then just the witch trials and Jeff will share all of that with you. We can't wait to visit Salem again and do the night tour once more! Thank you Jeff for creating a really amazing experience for my friend and I!

We did the night tour that was from 8PM - 930PM. Daniel was very knowledgeable and had some awesome ghost stories! He also made sure that everyone in the group respected social distancing and safety guidelines. Highly recommend!

We did the evening historical tour of Salem which was led by Jeff. We ended up having a private tour with just our group of 4 (reduced numbers due to Covid). The tour was an easy walk through Salem, and all the buildings and cobblestone streets looked beautiful in the evening. Jeff was a wealth of knowledge and told us in-depth stories about famous Salem residents-- giving us a real feel for what the city was like in the 1600's and beyond. The Salem Witch Trials were touched on, and Jeff was able to answer all our burning questions about the trials themselves which further expanded on what we already knew. Professional & well run -- fun evening activity. Also, if you are worried about being scared or spooked-- don't worry this wasn't that type of tour.

We went to the night ghost tour. Daniel was our guide and he was excellent! Here struck the perfect balance between historical info and ghostly happenings! It was a great tour that went by so fast. We were able to ask questions and Daniel seemed to know everything about Salem, the witch trials, and haunted investigations. It was informative, fun, and spooky all rolled into one. We've been on several of the Salem tours and this ranks as one of the best.

Daniel did a great job of capturing the attention of everyone on the tour. He told stories that were interesting and gave a different thought of some of the buildings that we did not realize was haunted. We would highly recommend this tour.
