Paige was our guide. She was excellent. Very funny. Very informative and she kept us on our toes, literally. We walked so much but saw so much of Salem even if it’s a little city. Would definitely do a tour again!

Really enjoyed the tour. Booked last minute and was worried it would not be as high quality since there were still spots available. Our guide was great, very knowledgeable. He talked about a lot of sites that used to be present and in depth history. I do wish we had spent some more time on the the places still standing.

Our guide was funny and knowledgeable. He was a good storyteller. Even if there isn’t much to see on the tour because all the buildings being talked about our gone, it’s still a good time.
