I've done every tour in Salem, some more than once, but this is by far the best. Our guide, Jeffery, was very knowledgeable and dynamic. He had a sense of humor, too, which is something many other guides lack. Fantastic!

This tour led by Salem life long resident Jeff is by far the best you will find! Jeff is passionate and makes it a point to research everything he projects. Don’t waste time and money going elsewhere
