Elaina the tour guide was absolutely great, her "Elaina fun facts" were awesome, felt bad I couldn't tip her because I had no cash on hand she was very engaging and funny at times. Love that she wasn't just facts only, would definitely recommend this tour, it was about a mile long around the whole area

We had Cas as a tour guide and she was phenomenal! She brought a lot of humor to the tour and was very knowledgeable about all things Salem, haunted or not. She gave us a little bit of history for context as well as the haunted sightings. Would highly recommend Salem Night Tours!

A great deal of history was told as well as a great perspective of the times. This and the witches museum were the best!
