About
Take an easy, 90-minute guided tour through the city's streets and stories to explore the events that shaped Salem, and still cast long shadows today. You'll hear about witches and Puritans, of course, but also about Nathaniel Hawthorne, the exotic spice trade, a Revolutionary War standoff, and the Great Fire that nearly wiped Salem off the map. We'll even visit one of the oldest graveyards in the nation!

We were very happy with our walking tour. The main reason was our tour guide Rory. He made the tour come alive. You could tell he had a lot of reasearch of what went on in Salem in the 1600's. The tour was an easy walk and took about 90 minutes. There were other tours going on while we walked the streets of Salem, but we feel Rory's account was really Authentic.

Very informative and entertaining with no gimmicks. Less focused on the trials themselves than I expected and included more history of the city. Great value for the price

I cannot express enough how wonderful this tour was with Rory! We learned so much in the 90 minute tour. I could hear other tour guides as we went along and I am so glad that we chose this one. Rory’s personality and knowledge was top notch, but what stuck out even more was his love of what he does (because it sure does show).

Rory did a great job providing an informative, historically-accurate tour of the overall history of Salem, not just the witch trials. While he does cover the witch trials, it is done in a respectful manner and is well-suited. Overall great tour without the B.S. that we witnessed from some of the other tours going on.

Loved Rory’s style and stories. Super interesting and an engaging way of speaking. Great overview of Salem, with just the right amount of history outside of the whole witch thing.
