Jeremiah was a great guide! It was the perfect blend of Salem mercantile history, ghost stories, witch trials history, and a few Hocus Pocus filming locations mixed in. Would recommend to any first time visitor in Salem!

April (our guide) was AMAZING, gave us so much information about Salem and totally different perspective of Salem’s history. I am so glad I brought my 11 y.o daughter on this tour, now she heard the true story what Salem was about, including the witch trials of course. Thank you April!

Salem with April was captivating for all ages

My son and I took this walking tour with April as our tour guide. She personally has deep roots in Salem. April was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. She took great pride in her city and shared a lot of history previously unknown to me. My 13 year old son was entertained the whole time. He reiterated the facts he learned later in the day. I was surprised by everything he had retained. It was an incredible experience and I would definitely recommend this tour. Hopefully you will have April as a tour guide as well!

This was a great tour, and orientation to Salem, and the Witch Trials. Our guide talked about Salem, the history of Salem, and happenings during the Witch Trials. We passed by historic and haunted places. We also passed by the Hocus Pocus house, which is also haunted. I learned a great deal about Salem, and had a lot of fun. I would definitely recommend this tour to everyone!!

Dani was our tour guide and she did an amazing job. She was very knowledgeable about the history of Salem and she took her time and answered any questions you had. She didn’t try to speak over the traffic and was easy to follow along. I’m not sure if you can request a certain guide, but I would choose her if you can. We had a great time!
