Great tour, knowledgeable guide, better than museum

This was a very nice walking tour. We went to a good number of places and our guide explained many things about the town as well as the witch trials. She actually explained things a lot better and more detailed than the Salem Witch Museum did so that was great, and she was able to answer the additional questions asked by the group. Would definitely recommend!

The tour was great, a lot of facts, not a dramatic show. Perfect amount of walking and seeing different spots.

I really liked learning about the Hocus Pocus house. Has no idea about the fire. We plan on spending more time in the garden behind the house. So interesting about the black pepper sales…oh and the tunnels! Wow! Just so much more than the witch trials! Loved the tour!!

Guide Needed Microphone

Although the tour guide was extremely knowledgeable, friendly and had a good sense of humor, This tour would have been so much better had the guide had a microphone. We passed so many other tours where the guides had a mic but it seemed like this was the only tour guide without one. If it weren’t for the small group we were in, there would be no way we would have heard the guide speaking. Additionally all that the guide focused on was mostly the story of how Salem became what it is today, as well as the history of the witch trials. I had hoped for more historical info
