Seth was awesome! He took my husband and myself on an informative tour of Salem! It was February and freezing and only the two of us for the tour..... he brought us anyway. I would highly recommend this tour. Thank you, Seth!

Seth's tour was both interesting and informative. Although, I have been to Salem a few times prior, I learned so much more on this tour than I had ever known before. It was entertaining and fun. I highly recommend the tour to tourists, history buffs, students, and even locals who want to learn more about Salem's unique history!

I along with my song booked this tour through groupon. We waited at the designated location assigned with no one ever showing up. We called and the tour had been cancelled. We received no notification ahead of time so we could have adjusted our schedule. I lost my money. I called with no satisfaction to my complaint from the owner.

We purchased our tickets and when we arrived to check in the guide just dismissed us. As if we weren't there. We then proceeded to walk with the group and we could not hear a thing he was saying. It was as if he was only speaking to those right in front of him. We walked off the tour and... More
