Our experience was amazing and worth every penny. The tour offers plenty of stops to make it worth your money, but we also had enough time at each stop for ample information and fine for questions. Our guide Celine was impeccable, very passionate; she made the information very fluid and appropriately humorous. For other travelers I simply recommend check the weather to see if you should wear layers and wear tennis shoes!

Elaina the tour guide was absolutely great, her "Elaina fun facts" were awesome, felt bad I couldn't tip her because I had no cash on hand she was very engaging and funny at times. Love that she wasn't just facts only, would definitely recommend this tour, it was about a mile long around the whole area

the tour was great. An incredible amount was explained which made everything a little more tangible. the lady who did the tour with us was just great. She explained everything so well. If she had done another tour today, we would have done another with her.

Fun and interesting tour. Our tour guide, Elaina, is very knowledgeable about Salem and has so many stories to tell. Would love to do it again!

A very beautiful place with a lot of history. I love it
