Q&A with Tim Maguire, Owner
Apart from your business’s main attraction, do you offer any “hidden” services or activities that visitors are always delighted to learn about?
We have themed retail shops in Plymouth and Salem, and our Tour guests get 20% off.
When and how did you first develop a passion for your work?
A love for understanding the American idea.
I’m a first-timer. How do you get me ready for the experience?
We are Salem’s best nightly “Haunt and History Tour.” Join the adventure. Every night at 8pm, our licensed guides lead you through legends, history, and the infamous hysteria of 1692. This is a walking tour of downtown Salem at a comfortable pace, so dress accordingly. The Salem Night Tour is largely attended, so reservations are strongly suggested. The tour lasts 75 minutes.
Histrionic Academy-Tour of The Freedom Trail: The Path to Independence
Unless they’re drinking copious amounts of his namesake beer, tour goers along the Freedom Trail won’t likely catch a glimpse of famous revolutionary Sam Adams. But they will hear tales about his struggle for freedom from the British—the kind of struggle that made Boston a hotbed of revolutionary activity in the 1800s. Led by costume-clad tour guides, The Path to Independence tour takes visitors along the red brick path toward famed landmarks such as Boston Common, Old Granary Burying Ground, Old South Meeting House, and Old North Church. At each spot, they’ll learn about the site’s role in colonial Boston, from its founding years in the 1630s to the fight for American independence and the key players in the fight, including Paul Revere, Samuel Adams, and John Hancock.
