    Good, just not taken back to pick up spot like description said.
    REVA_B, Sep 2023
    We had Dave who was very informative. I would have given 5 stars however we were not taken back to the place we met like description said. I didn't pay much attention cause it said we would be going back there. We were left at the Victims memorial at 9:15 at night. I'm glad my husband was with me. The other couple got an Uber back to their car. He did offer directions but it's pitch dark and we had never been to Salem. (Not safe)

    Hi there. I am sorry, that was an error on my part. Salem does get a little rough at night. I am sorry for that mistake on my part. But I’m glad you liked the tour
    David did a really good...
    Vanessa_B, Sep 2023
    David did a really good job explaining the history of Salem and how it came to be established. By setting this stage he helped to tell the story of how the witch trials came to be from the way everyone lived their lives back in the day. Because we were a small group it was good because we had more of an intimate experience than we would if we were in a larger group.
    Fun and Informative
    Alexis_B, Sep 2023

    David did a great job on our tour. He kept it informative, fun, and engaged everyone in the group. He had lots of interesting facts that we weren't aware of.

    Just basic fun information learned a lot. Didn’t know that the “witch trials” weren’t as long as I thought
    2 thumbs up for our guide!

    David did a great job, was prompted. Contacted us in advance and made sure we were set to enjoy our tour. Wished there was more stories to be shared with our group. This was our first time to Salem. Thank you for guiding us around Salem.

    Great experience, our guide David was interactive and funny. Had great information and was entertaining.
    Good stuff David!
    Ken_T, Aug 2023
    David was a great tour guide. Funny, engaging, self-deprecating, informative and entertaining. May not be museum-level docent material but for an overview of the witch trials and the lead characters behind it, it was a perfect overview! I’d highly recommend this tour and David. Good stuff!
    Great Tour
    Jennifer_C, Aug 2023
    We did the earliest available time tour and it was great. It ended up being just me and my husband. Our tour guide, David, was very knowledgeable and made the entire tour entertaining. I would 10/10 recommend.

    Thank you Jennifer. It was so wonderful to meet both of you. I am so glad you liked the tour.
    Great tour!
