We have taken many ghost tours in historically significant places and this is by far the very best. Our tour guide Dr. Mike was not only incredibly knowledgeable in regards to the history of Salem, but he is also an amazing orator whose ability to spin a tale infused with his own personal experiences will leave you, well, spellbound.

My family and I attend Dr. Mike's tour on Weds, 4/19, and loved it. The information provided was both insightful and educational, esp for someone who grew up hearing about Salem witch lore from my south shore home. Dr. Mike's style and delivery were perfect, and what impressed us the most was his obvious appreciation and love for his profession.... More

I couldn't have been any happier choosing this tour. Our guide was fantastic! The tour kept us interested 100% of the time. We passed by other groups on other tours and their guides didn't even come close in comparison to ours. We talked about him for the rest of our trip.

Took my teen daughters to this tour, and we loved it. Dr. Vitka has a detailed command of the history of the town, and offers his personal perspectives on hauntings and paranormal activities.

Myself, my wife, and my 10-year-old daughter all greatly enjoyed this tour led by the warmly engaging Dr. Vitka. The man has a way of telling a story that will keep you entertained and on the edge of your seat. I thought I knew a lot about the Salem Witch Trials having taught The Crucible, but this tour showed me... More
