I did the Black Cat Tour the weekend before Halloween with my family. We had a great time, but the tour was one of the highlights. Daniel was a great tour guide. He was funny, but also very knowledgeable. Highly recommend!!

This tour was a great addition to our trip. The information complemented the other facts we had learned throughout our visit and overlapped very little, providing us with a lot of new insight. Highly recommend!

Booked the nighttime ghost tour with black cat. Our tour guide Jeff was great. He was very entertaining and enthusiastic. Learned a lot about the city in such a short time (tour ran a little shy of 2 hours). I would definitely recommend this to anyone visiting Salem.
