Jeff is a great guy and gives an awesome witch tour. The tour was great because Jeff really knew what he was talking about. You could tell he loved his city and that’s another reason why the tour was great.

Incredible addition to learning our history, having descended from those caught up in the hysteria. Jeff's tour was recommended by a local. That has to say a lot. Cheers, Jeff. The Canadians

Jeff was incredibly knowledgeable and the tour itself was wonderful. Historic tour that focused on facts as opposed to the numerous ghost tours in the area. The truth and history in the tour makes it even scarier.
