Decent tour.

Pretty good tour. Would have liked to heard more about the witch trials and seen more of the locations (even if pictures of the local areas if too far away or of the people involved). Our guide described the cemetery and stories from the parking lot next to the Merchant House. Would prefer to hear about the cemetery, etc. while standing in front of it. Guide was informative but could have been a little more animated when telling stories to get the group more emotionally attached to the surroundings.

Thank you for your feedback. We will definitely take it into consideration. In the two hours of our tour, we go into the Salem Witch trials extensively, complete with photo references that we share with you. The cemetery is closed for the year, but we do visit the witch trial memorial right against the Old Burying point. You really can’t get any closer to the cemetery than that. Thank you and have a great day.

Great tour of Salem! Our tour guide, Sean, was very knowledgeable and his passion for Salem and its history was great and made it even more enjoyable. One minor glitch,, we booked a 10 am and were scheduled into a 10:15 am tour unbeknownst to us. No big deal. Could have saved a little time had we known in advance.
