Jeff did a great job. Very detailed and engaging view of Salem’s history. No cheap thrills or fake ghost stories. All real history and examples. You must take this tour if you’re in town!

I've been to Salem before and done some of the "witch-y" stuff - and it was mostly hokey. Not this time. Jill at The Salem Inn told me she'd heard good things about it, so my spouse and I decided to give it a shot....More
