The tour guide was very knowledgeable. She added tidbits about if we saw something on a movie. She knew the history of the witch trials and the people that were a big part of it as well. The tour went quicker than I expected, as we stayed engaged the whole time. She also stopped to grab pictures of us if we wanted.

The tour guide we had was sooo knowledgeable. I myself had a lot of questions and she was able to answer all of them very thoroughly. I appreciated how “fair” she was in presenting the facts of the time period, and overall it was just a really enjoyable experience! My favorite pet of the tour was the Memorial, it was beautiful and solemn, and knowing the story behind its creation made it even more special. Best tour I’ve probably ever taken!
