A nice walking tour, and very informative, but seemed to get boring, just the same. My wife, and myself, were the only two, on the tour.

As a descendant of one of the women hanged as a result of the witch trials, I wanted historical context and a meaningful tour of the spots central to this tragedy. This tour provided exactly that.

My husband & I are traveling to Boston/Salem in a few weeks to see the sights and specifically visit Halloween haunted houses, escape rooms & real haunted location/witch tours. I was hoping to get recommendations. If you have any advice on the best and worst in the area I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you!

I would like some advice on which of the guided walking tours people have enjoyed the most. Also is it better to do them during the day or night? We would also like to some information on what ferry we could catch from Boston to Salem and then from Boston to Wahlbergers resturants? Thanks in anticipation.
