History of Salem

We had a very fun afternoon with Seth. He knew a lot about the history of Salem and it was very interesting. I would recommend to anyone that has not been to Salem.

I along with my song booked this tour through groupon. We waited at the designated location assigned with no one ever showing up. We called and the tour had been cancelled. We received no notification ahead of time so we could have adjusted our schedule. I lost my money. I called with no satisfaction to my complaint from the owner.

We purchased our tickets and when we arrived to check in the guide just dismissed us. As if we weren't there. We then proceeded to walk with the group and we could not hear a thing he was saying. It was as if he was only speaking to those right in front of him. We walked off the tour and... More

Seth provided a wonderful tour tonight! He was witty, charismatic, and knowledgeable. My mother and I are from the area and wanted to learn more about Salem's history. I would recommend this tour to anyone looking to learn about Salem's witchcraft, maritime history, and the architecture of many styles of homes in Salem. He answered many questions on the tour,...

Seth was great and very nice. He obviously knew what he was talking about and made sure to fit in just enough cheesy jokes and impressions to keep us entertained. I do wish we would have hit a little more on the tour as it seemed we were just walking around saying hi to people and there wasn't a whole... More

Me and my family took a tour of Salem with Seth and I can't say enough about how great the tour was. He was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about sharing loads of information around every corner of the city. I definitely will encourage anyone looking to go on a tour of Salem to sign up for a tour with Seth.... More

I live near Salem and had family visiting, so we booked a tour with Seth. He is a funny and engaging guide, and had my family and I entertained and laughing throughout the tour. He's also highly knowledgeable about lesser-known aspects of Salem history - I've lived in the Salem area for over 30 years, and learned some things I... More

Our tour guide Seth was entertaining, personable and very knowledgeable. He made this walking tour fun and brought the important history of Salem alive. Everyone in my party really enjoyed the day and left wanting to even more. This tour is a bargain for students, history buffs and newcomers to the area. What a wonderful day! Thank you Seth
