History and Hauntings of Salem Guided Walking Tour

Thank you, Jeremiah, for an unforgettable tour of beautiful Salem! Your thoughtful description of the history and happenings made each story and character come alive, without sensationalism or forced drama. We appreciated learning about how Salem was formed and reformed over the years, with an honest openness about the problems and pitfalls that led to the Salem witch trials. Your overall insight on how these situations may relate to today were also deeply appreciated and showed excellent discernment.Thank you for all you do to share the valuable stories of Salem, and for inspiring us to think about how we can be better together in each of our communities today.

Michala did an excellent tour. Informative, focused on history, and included stuff that wasn’t directly related to the witch trials too. Great pace for walking, making sure she had the entire group with her, and was easily heard.

We had such a great walking tour with the best guide, April. She was just full of knowledge and we got to learn a ton! Great disposition, informative and personable. Can’t imagine there’s a better tour out there. Another one passed us by and I could hear their guide talking and it sounded sub-par in comparison to what April was giving us. Highly recommend this tour.

William was our guide and was an excellent story teller and ambassador of Salem. The tour encompassed the past and present and moved along at a good pace. There was a mix of history, ghosts stories, and anecdotes. Definitely a great introduction to the Witch City.
