If you like history and facts, this is the tour for you. Rory was a fantastic guide full of fascinating information. Highly recommend.
Small group, good pace

Rorey covered many aspects of Salem history in a humorous and thoughtful way. Good number of stops without being too rushed. Not uptight about me joining late.
Best tour. Would go again.

Everything our guide said. By giving us a complete history of "English" settlers in the region it laid a better foundation for understanding how the with trials could have even happened. And of course explaining the witch trials and the process which was used to convict.
Comprehensive tour of the history of Salem

We were hosting some visiting family members from out of state, and took the opportunity to go on Salem on Foot Walking Tour with Rory. Rory's tour covered it all, from the Naumkeag people, and the witch trials, to Leslie's Retreat and beyond. His tour gave me a deeper appreciation for the history of the city. I learned a lot and enjoyed the time. His recommendation for dinner was spot on as well. The only disappointment was that I wished it was longer. Don't get me wrong, this is a 90 minute tour, and is comprehensive. Rory's delivery and deep knowledge gave me the feeling there was still more to learn. Rory was also conscientious of COVID protocols, which I appreciated very much. I'd sign on for another tour with him next time we bring guests to MA.
Great tour

Guide was excellent , I would say if you are looking for a tour with a lot of detailed history about the town of Salem this is for you . If you just want to focus on the witch trials then maybe this is not the right tour !
