Very lively for a ghost tour XD

So, we honestly cannot remember his name to save our lives, but we do remember the Professor Doctor part, so that's the name we're going with. He was fantastic. All of the stories came to life and the accent added so much to it. It was such a fun experience and I'm definitely bringing more people next time.

You likely had Prof. Nicodemus Whateley who was condemned to do tours for us due to a clause in his contract from the 1800s. He's great. Just don't anger him or he will summon his fire demon. We're glad you enjoyed the tour and that he didn't take your soul.
Highly recommended

Great tour! So much fun loved all the ghost stories as well as getting some great pics of orbs and rods in the garden. I would highly recommend asking for Bob! Thanks for such a great tour bob!

Our guide was fantastic. She had stories and tales. She knew all the good spots even to eat. Her pace was perfect.
Do not spend money on this

This tour was bad. You might like this tour if you like shows like Ghost Hunter or hearing people say "ooh I feel a strange presence right now". If you're looking for a historical tour about the Salem Witch Trials (which is interesting and spooky enough on it's own, by the way), look elsewhere. I learned absolutely nothing about the history of Salem on this tour. Our guide took us to the Witch House and said "This is the witch house. Did everybody take a picture? Did anyone get an orb?". WHAT HAPPENED HERE??? Our guide wasn't even a good presenter. He used to do stand-up comedy? Really?? If you're not going to be informative, at least be entertaining! I wish I could get my money back. Idk - there were several other presenters taking groups out on the same tour, maybe they're better... maybe not.
Fun, Frightening and just Fantastic!

Bob was a fantastic guide! He was only informative, he was also very funny and made the tour a real delight. I was pretty frustrated when two ladies joined our group without paying or anything. It was just along the way and they just started walking along with us. Bob noticed them right away and very professionally and politely instructed them to go to the place we started and explained they needed to purchase tickets. With social distancing, it made us all feel like he was looking out for us. I definitely recommend this tour!
Fun Tour

Our guide was very informative and funny. Tour included some further explanation of witch trial events as well as some other interestjng historical events and facts that are interesting and not necessarily what people know about Salem
