There was a great deal of information provided and the tour led you to places that you could look deeper if you wanted to

Difficult to locate due to crowds. So not really sure how actual tour is was. Might be great but not at height of season. 10/31!

Yes, Diane, we agree THE Witch City is popular on Halloween! Imagine how much harder and more disappointing it would have been to follow and not hear a $40 group tour-guide? This is exactly why so many people love WalknTours! The crowds and popularity of Salem around Halloween (especially ON Halloween) cause everything to sell out but we offer an activity for anyone and everyone to enjoy on their own schedule and at their own pace, for a fraction of the price. I’m sorry you didn’t get to experience our tour. Your code never expires so we invite you to return when the crowds die down. Be sure to use headphones for the best experience :)

Horrible

Despite trying for hours to load the experience no one on the tour in our group was able to. We never got to use it and our money was wasted.
icon Response from Host , Oct 2021
Ellen, I’m really sorry to hear you were unable to take the tour. We mention repeatedly in the booking email, ticket confirmation and reminder emails to download the tour before you get to town. If you are already in town we suggest connecting to a restaurant or store WiFi. Data availability in Salem cannot support the influx of people, especially ON Halloween. We are here answering calls and emails at 617 991 3269 and info@walkntours.com to help tour takers overcome the data obstacle that we have no control over. We also happily provide full refunds for anyone that cannot experience the tour.

Hi Renee, so sorry to hear this. We are not a map. We offer GPS guided tours on your smart phone. Our technology knows your location and narrates you through a self-guided walking tour. Did you review the wrong product? I hope you enjoyed your time in Salem!

OUCH! we can feel your pain through this review! We are so sorry you had trouble. Salem is extremely popular this time of year, which is why the booking instructions suggest downloading before you get to town. If people have trouble onsite, we invite them to contact us ANYTIME! We are a tiny company of 2 offering (basically) 24/7 support via 617-991-3269 or info@walkntours.com. Sometimes it's as simple as turning off WiFi, allowing download permissions, or misspelling the code. We are sorry you were unable to take the tour this weekend. Your purchase does not expire and we hope you'll consider giving us a try!

Easy to use and follow. Great narration and lots of good history. It was great to be able to take the tour on our own schedule! Made it very convenient with a small child.

Tour on your own
MaryEllen_D

Good option in lieu of a guided tour, let you go at your own pace. Very easy instructions, great that it waited for you to reach next destination before continuing. Would have liked a bit more history mixed in with the ghost story.
icon Response from Host , Oct 2021
Thanks for your feedback Mary Ellen. Our other Salem Tour “Hawthorne’s Haunts”has more history. We hope you’ll try it next time you’re in Salem.

Disappointed

The most memorable part was we couldn’t download the app. We tried 2 different iPhones in different spots but still didn’t work.
icon Response from Host , Oct 2021
Salem has very weak signal during October weekends and we suggested in all our emails / booking info, to download the app and tour before hand :(. If you do try to download in Salem on a Saturday please use Wi-Fi. It's unlikely your data plan has signal in Salem. But good news, you can get Wifi at local shops in Salem!
