Tour guide gave lots of interesting haunted history and was energetic and enthusiastic. I appreciated that Cambridge Haunts sent me very helpful info prior to the tour and the owner was very helpful in solving some minor problems I had in making my reservation. I would definitely recommend this tour!
Had a great time with our tour leader, Meghan. She was very knowledgeable and detailed about the happenings, history, and sightings on our tour. It was a lot of fun and we learned a lot about a city that we've visited on numerous occasions. The tour of the Harvard University grounds was especially interesting.
The tour itself and the guide were great. The walking was more than I wanted to handle after a day of walking the freedom trail. So, had I known the amount of walking, I would have scheduled things differently.

About Wicked Salem Tour
Between editing various regional publications and teaching journalism classes at Malden Access TV, freelance journalist Sam Baltrusis wrote his book Ghosts of Boston: Haunts of the Hub. In its pages he reveals 300 years of city history and ghost stories. He details unexplained sounds and hovering objects seen inside the Hub’s dorm rooms, apparitions witnessed on the Boston Common, and a colonial British solider glimpsed on the tracks at the Boylston station. His second book, Ghosts of Cambridge: Haunts of Harvard Square and Beyond hit shelves in September 2013, and his third book, Ghosts of Salem: Haunts of the Witch City was published just a year later; in addition, his deft pen has led him to become a regional stringer for The New York Times.
Not content with relegating his words to the page, Sam also brings them to life through seasonal walking tours. Guides lit by handheld lanterns lead guests through the shadowy streets of downtown Boston. The founder's literary background shows through on the tours, too, which are peppered with the lore of Nathaniel Hawthorne, Charles Dickens, and Edgar Allan Poe. When he's not guiding in-person guests, Sam doubles as a paranormal expert on the Biography Channel's, "Haunted Encounters" and on Ryan Buell's Paranormal Insider Radio.
