SALEM Historical 1692 TOUR & Ghost TOUR

Ever wonder what REALLY happened in the Witch City of Salem Massachusetts?

Historic Salem, the "Bewitching Seaport", was founded by Puritans in 1626, as a quaint fishing village. Salem however became better known as a place once visited by the devil himself, the Salem Witch Trials of 1692...
You have heard the stories, now come with us and hear the truth about what besieged Salem in the year of our Lord 1692.

We’ll start @ 3:00pm with a guided 90 minute walking tour dedicated to the Witch Trials. Our guide will explain the history and the events leading up to and including this misunderstood time.
When the tour concludes we will have some time to ask questions and discuss related topics with Eric our tour guide. (please don’t be shy about tipping – he’s an excellent guide and a history student).

That’s not all, there’s more……..lots more!

Dinner anyone? Between 5:30 - 6:00pm reservations are planned: Establishment to be announced.

After dinner there will be a short break (about an hour) to either relax, shop in the quaint village, or whatever you may find exciting ………. There’s plenty to do.

Now don’t go home yet! There’s still more…….

In the tradition of Halloween and being in probably one of the scariest places for this time of year we’ll do one – last - thing. But before we do, you must be warned that this can be ……………. well, a bit spooky at times! At 8:00pm on this FULL MOON night we will take this 90 minute lantern lit stroll with our ghostly guide that will combine captivating storytelling, macabre humor and stellar presentation to regale you with true tails of documented paranormal activity, chilling cemeteries, centuries-old murder & Colonial witchcraft. They’ll also share with us their own personal encounters with Salem’s dearly departed!

Our guide was personally selected for his profound historic knowledge of Salem and his incredible professional experiences.

The cost for this event is only $28. (this does not include; transportation, parking, food, beverage, tax, tips, or any purchases).

Please RSVP ASAP and I’ll respond with payment instructions. Only people who are paid-in-full are officially on-board.

****We will meetup outside the VISITOR CENTER @ Armory Park on 2 New Liberty St. between 2:30 – 2-45:pm. Parking is just across the street at the Liberty Street parking garage. Additional parking at the Derby street parking garage is also available. Maps will be provided.

    Such, such, such a good time! Eric was the best, with his big brain for Salem stuff and all. Presented very well, well-paced, no rushing around, plenty of time for dinner and drinks afterwards.
    Dana really outdid himself in setting this up.
    Would buy from again. A++++++++

    Would any of the people in waiting be interested in buying my ticket? I have a long commute to Salem and wouldn't mind sitting this one out as the forecast isn't looking so great.

    Apologies for the late request, but anyone accommodate one more for a carpool? I'm coming from the South Shore.

    September 26, 2012

    • Dana O.

      Lou, I posted your request for carpooling on the other four sites.

      September 26, 2012

  • Valerie

    Unfortunately :( I'll now have to be at class Sat. afternoon. Any chance of a refund if someone else pays for my spot?

    September 26, 2012

  • Dana O.

    Anyone interested in car pooling from Worcester area?

    September 24, 2012

  • Dana O.

    Hey everyone it's September and the 29th will be here before we know it. So I'm asking those that are serious about going to PLEASE HAVE YOUR PAYMENT TO ME BY SEPTEMBER 14th - There are folks from other groups on waiting lists that want to pay now and are hoping for a slot to open. Also, remember that you are not officially on board until your payment has been received.
    Thanks. - Dana

    • Dana O.

      Not sure what it is your asking Meryl. But If it's about payment, I'm emailing the payment instructions to you again.

      I am all paid in full.

  • Janet

    sent my payment today

    September 5, 2012

  • Dana O.

    Does anyone else out there wish for me to post car pooling information and requests on the other sites?

    September 5, 2012

  • Jordan

    I may have skipped ahead in the wait list line since I wasn't on it, if so, let me know and I'll give the spot to someone who was on the list. I simply saw a spot available and took it.

    September 4, 2012

    • Dana O.

      Jordan, don't worry, the "list" has been very dynamic with people opting out and others (like yourself) signing up. So the #s seem to be stabilizing as the waiting list keeps turning on and off - this is good because everyone that wants to go most likely will, and hopefully no one will be left on a waiting list.

      September 4, 2012

  • Valerie

    I paid for one person last Friday. I would like to go to dinner.

    September 4, 2012

    I will pay when I learn how. I did change my reservation to just myself, instead of +1.

    September 4, 2012

  • Dana O.

    For those that are coming the payment info will be sent to you by tomorrow (Thursday).

    August 29, 2012

  • Dana O.

    Okay, I don't know why the RSVP YES waiting list is not working - I'll continue to work on the issue. But if you do wish to get on the waiting list please email me and I'll keep track manually for now. Sorry for the inconvenience - Dana

    August 29, 2012

  • Dana O.

    I Need to limit the # of people on this event but because I've posted on multiple groups I cannot automatically have an indication that says it's FULL. So I will monitor it manually and post when it's at a full capacity. I will be contacting each of you with payment details as soon as possible. Thanks!

    August 28, 2012

    • Dana O.

      YES! I just enabled a waiting list, it should be available soon.

      August 28, 2012

  • Peggy T

    I would like to go to dinner.
