THE HIGHLIGHT OF OUR TRIP TO NEW ENGLAND
My wife and I did the walking tour of Salem with Better Than Fiction Tours. We were passing through the area and decided to stop in Salem. We booked our tour last minute. Despite the rainy, windy weather Better Than Fiction Tours showed up and delivered an amazing tour. Our guide Jeff was knowledgeable, friendly and enthusiastic to share his knowledge of the events in 1692-1693. I would highly recommend anyone mildly interested in history to spend the afternoon doing a walking tour with Better Than Fiction Tours.
RIVETING HISTORICAL EXPERIENCE
Visited Salem for Mother’s Day and decided to do a walking tour. Jeff is a super educated, engaging, and theatrical story teller who took us on a riveting journey through the history of Salem and the witch trial. We learned a ton and got to see the town.
10/10 would recommend. He has a clear passion for Salem and made our trip so much more enjoyable.
We recently did the Better than Fiction “True Stories of a Strange Salem” tour, and it was awesome! I am usually not one to enjoy “guided tours” as I normally find them slow moving and boring, however BTF tours has changed my outlook! Jeff was equally as personable as he was knowledgeable. He kept us entertained and laughing the whole time. We are huge Salem enthusiasts and visit quite frequently, yet we still learned a ton about Salem on this tour. I 100% recommend this tour for anyone. Make sure you check them out when you come to Salem!
Great historical tour with deep insights into people and their histories!
We came to Salem for Halloween weekend and booked this tour as our first activity in the Town. Jeffrey was a great tour guide and his knowledge and command of the story and narrative of the witch trials, geography and context behind the series of the events that took place is impeccable. He expertly connected the dots between people and places offering a sobering narrative with lessons that still apply to this day. I 100% recommend this tour. You will not be disappointed!
Awesome daytime walking tour
Very entertaining tour! Jeff was a master in his presentation of the facts and folklore surrounding the Salem Witch trials. He was very accommodating in booking the tour as well, because we made a few changes to the numbers in our party and he was very understanding. The hour and 1/2 went fast because our attention was focused on the storytelling by Jeff! Highly recommend him. I would not hesitate to book a tour in the future with him!
Best Tour in Salem!
Jeff (tour guide and owner) was absolutely incredible! The tour focused on actual historical events of the area, not baseless ghost stories told with overdramatic flair. Jeff was interesting and knowledgeable, and it was clear he knows the area and the stories well. This isn't a tour for cheap scares - this is for anyone who wants the real history told by someone passionate about it. The stories are creepy enough on their own!
