The tour guide didn’t get into any interesting history. Just basically showed us location and said paranormal activity has happen there. Passed other tours and wished we booked with them. Disappointed.

Excellent tour. We did the educational stuff earlier in the day so that gave great context. Our tour guide was enthusiastic without being cheesy and knew a lot about the city. Not too scary for kids.

The tour guide was very entertaining and knowledgeable about the sights around Salem. He told us many stories of ghosts that wander the town and was also quite funny. This was by far the best walking tour I have ever been on and was definitely the highlight of my trip to Salem.

Poor

Our tour guide was lovely but it was extremely difficult to hear her and had trouble finding group in the crowd as we traveled. We ended up leaving and did not finish the tour
icon Response from Host , Nov 2021
We're sorry you had trouble hearing but you can always ask the guide to turn up the amplifier. The problem in October is there are so many people in the city and you might have musicians near by. Sometimes it is good to move closer too.

Thought the Nathaniel Hawthorne hotel and park next to it was very cool The cemeteries were neat but wish we could have walked within them
icon Response from Host , Oct 2021
We talk about a lot more information on the tour. The cemeteries are closed at night and no tour can go in. But you can go into the cemeteries during the day time.

Lost money
Elizabeth_B

Was not able to go. Got the tour for the wrong day and wasn’t able to visit Salem that day. Wasted $70 because it was non refundable.
icon Response from Host , Oct 2021
We're sorry that happened but October fills up quickly and it is very hard for us to accommodate a transfer because we have strict guidelines from the city regarding the amount of people we can have a tour. Had you realized you picked the wrong date weeks in advance, we might have been able to accommodate you..

Stephanie is a very knowledgeable tour guide and told us some great stories about the haunted places we visited. The fact that the weather was brisk and windy and it had rained most of the day, definitely added to the spookiness factor.

The tour was so informative, and we learned a lot. My only complaint was not being able to hear and the guide did not wait for the entire group to reach her before talking, so we missed a lot.

Very hard to keep interest in the tour.
Meagan_G

Chonch was our tour guide. We had him last night for the first tour. Regrettably, we had him again today for our second tour. We ended up leaving both tours early because our guide rambled terribly. Very hard to keep interest. Most of the guests were visibly bored. He was very nice though, just needs to learn to stay on task.
