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

Thank you for your feedback. I 100% understand and appreciate your frustration with with the amount of people we said hi to. Within the last 10-12 years, October had become so much bigger and crazier than it was when I first moved to town. As a filler, in between stops, I did have my group say hi to many colleagues...

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

The tour was a very easy walk and was informative. Seth is knowledgeable and was very accommodating. We were actually suppose to go with him the day before but were running late so he allowed us to change the time.
