I signed up for this tour because lack of planning on my part meant that I missed the other popular tours. This one was a bit more expensive than the others and listed its run time to be shorter. Still, I wanted to tour "something" so bought tickets. The sign in area was easy to find and the people running it were nice and professional. The tour guide (I forget the name so sorry) was very nice and also mentioned that she was a practicing witch and would answer any questions about the tour or witchcraft at the end. Her voice, along with her microphone/speaker carried reasonably well. One bit of feedback would be to get a long stick with something bright on the top instead of holding up her hand with a flashlight. Navigating through the busy streets meant that sometimes we would lose site of her. Luckily they had someone following up the back to keep track of people. One tour I took in Vancouver had the tour guide use a large rod with a glowing skull on top. Easy to find. Something like that could work. While she seemed to know her stuff, sometimes it seemed that she was "trying to remember" her facts as opposed to just 'knowing it and telling it." Additionally, sometimes she would use the phrase "so that's cool" which seemed to take away from the presentation. Still, she had a good presence and personality and I could see her doing very well with a slightly more polished presentation. Some tour guides have a slightly more captivating presentation (though some are corny has "heck") so additional practice might make her feel more convincing. I'm not sure why this tour is shorter than some others and wonder if there are sites that we are missing from other tours? Especially since, as I mentioned, this tour was a bit more money than the others.

This tour was slightly disappointing. For $25 per individual (4 people in our group), we had expected a bit more background knowledge and information on what Salem has to offer. Our one hour tour went from about 9 pm until 10 pm, but the tour actually ended a bit earlier than scheduled - more like 9:50 pm. The tour guide was very nice and stated that she was a practicing witch, which we thought was pretty cool. However, beyond the major stories that were provided and expected, there wasn't much further substance. For the way this tour went and the amount of information that was provided, I would not pay more than $10. Most of the information and stories that were provided could have been performed for free and self-guided via a simple Google search of 'Salem, MA History and Spooky Stories'.
