We went to Salem for the day during our trip to Boston. Although we enjoyed the city all day. The tour was definitely the best part of the day. Our tour guide made it exciting and a little scary. I definitely recommend it if you want to learn the dark history of Salem.

My husband and I took this ghost tour in Salem the day after Halloween. We were fairly pleased with this tour, but it wasn't my absolute favorite ghost tour I have ever taken. The guide was very engaging and knowledgable clearly. However, we did go to the witch museum and the house of the seven gables the day before and... More

I attended the Friday afternoon walking tour with my 11 and 13 year-old grandchildren. Our guide was articulate, intelligent, fun, informative, and kept us captivated during our one and a half hour, walking tour. We had an opportunity to sit for a few minutes during several of our stops while our guide spoke about the location. This tour is great... More

I had low expectations as I am not one to join tours. Planned on feeling unenthusiastic and a little embarrassed. I couldn't have been more wrong. Our guide, Dr Vitka, was kind, curious, energetic, funny, confident and knowledgeable. I hung on every word. It was such a fascinating tour told with well crafted stories and cliffhangers. Dr Vitka was awesomely... More

Enjoyed this tour very much are guide was entertaining and very helpful. The stories and history was very interesting. We had a family with their dog and when we were in the cemetery the dog was unsettled and couldnt get out of the cemetery fast enough so we probably had some extra tourist with us.

Spellbound tours with mike is by far the best night tour in Salem! He brought us to sights that you would never seen on your own! He was so informative and so much fun. On this tour we found out we are actually staying in a very haunted hotel. Historical and spooky! Hands down a 5 star tour

We went a few days after Halloween, so there were only a few of us on the tour. The dude was super knowledgeable, very entertaining, and left us with some stories that kept us awake for days. Go on it!

Did this tour this past Friday evening. We enjoyed it very much; it was so informative. There is so much hidden history that we would have otherwise never known. The guide was extremely knowledgeable and allowed ample opportunity for questions. I highly recommend this tour.
