Alicia is a ball of energy, a performer for all ages, and has a way of teaching that is engaging and memorable. We had a group of 4 adults and 4 elementary and middle school aged kids and they all enjoyed the tour.

The Salem Kids Tour will blow you away with A LOT of info, and even if you think you already know about the history of Salem, I promise Alicia's vast knowledge will impress you. She is a fabulous teacher who is passionate about the history of the town she lives in. High recommend!

I took my 8 year old granddaughter on this tour, and we loved it. Our group was about 20 people with a range of children aged 4 to high school, and their parent(s). I was impressed by how Alicia held everyone's attention, and how much information she imparted in a fun manner. Great tour for anyone, and especially if you have children with you!

Alicia was wonderful and super enthusiastic, which kept the kids (ages 3, 6, and 8) all engaged. You can tell that she loves what she does. My 6 year old told her that "this was the best tour he has ever been on." She also gave us tips on where to park and use restrooms, which was helpful given that many of the standard places to use the restroom are closed due to COVID-19. Highly recommend!

Thank you so much for your lovely review. Glad my parking trick worked. It takes some magic to conjure up parking around here, but once you park your broom, it's worth it. I DO love what I do and I'm glad you all enjoyed the tour. Hope to see you again in The Witch City. <3

This was a great tour for both kids and adults! Alicia was very engaging and clearly takes pride in teaching others about Salem. The perfect amount of time was spent at each site; long enough to disseminate plenty of information but short enough to keep everyone’s attention. My son is 8 and did not get bored on this tour, and felt like he learned some really interesting things! We also learned many things that we never knew and felt that this was a worthwhile experience.

This was a great tour. We chose this for a 9 year old but the early teen and adults found it every bit as interesting. We all agreed that Alicia was one of the best tour guides we have had . She presented a wide-ranging overview of Salem's history without sensationalizing any of it. She is very expressive, knows her information, communicates well, and does a good job at drawing in all the different participants. She was helpful at snswering questions specific to the tour but also pertaining to the rest of our Salem visit. Additionally, she was also willing to add an additional tour time when we were unable to make the original time work which was much appreciated. It was such a good start to our visit to Salem!

Alicia was great! She has such love and knowledge of the city. Her ability to engage the kids was nothing short of amazing, including both Hamilton and Hocus Pocus facts kept my 10 and 13 year old girls mesmerized. Thanks Alicia, we will definitely be back with friends and family!

On Sunday we had the best experience with guide Alicia of Salem Kids Tours earning our Playing the Past Badge for our Girl Scouts. She created a tour to be girl-focused for our scouts and had excellent recommendations to deepen our exploration of girls in historic Essex County.
This is the second time I've taken her tour with a Girl Scout troop and it has always been fun, engaging, educational and informative! No outlandish tales of exaggerated history, but the real history of Salem (which is wild enough)! As a local, we didn't want a performative experience but the real deal - this tour is it.
Highly recommended to anyone with kids who wants to learn a bit about Salem's history!

Miss Alicia is a true gem. She takes you on a wonderful tour of the city that not only touches on the witch trials, but also the basic history of the city. As a teacher, she definitely has the ability to captivate and engage kids. She is a great story teller! I would recommend this tour to any family
visiting the Salem area!

Both of my children (ages 7 and 3) loved this tour, and it was by far my favorite part of our day in Salem. The tour guide was wonderfully engaging, and really helped the kids to learn about the history of the area while also making connections to their lives now. It was really a fantastic experience and one I would recommend to families with kids of all ages.

This tour was so much fun! I brought my four year old and he had a blast seeing all the sights and walking around Salem, he especially loved hearing all the spooky (but not too spooky) ghost stories that were perfect for his age. I could tell that his curiosity was piqued and that she held his interest almost the whole time, which is hard to do with a toddler! His favorite part was the old graveyard at the end, he absolutely loved running around and checking out all the old stones and listening to the history. The best part was, his Dad and I loved it just as much as him! This has to be the best tour in Salem for families, don't miss it!
