My parents, my husband and I took a little day trip to Salem, MA for the first time and went on this amazing walking tour! We got to see so many historical places and learn so much about Salem in past and present time! Mia was our guide and she was AWESOME! She’s so knowledgeable and answered all of our questions! My whole family agreed it was one of the highlights of our trip to the Boston area!
