Bloodlust: Mysteries of Victorian Boston
In the late 1800s, Boston experienced a rash of gruesome murders and unexplained phenomena. The “Boston Medical and Surgical Journal” observed, “The increase in the number of the criminally insane has been exceptionally rapid…” Most interesting was the way one community reacted to this – The South End, the country’s oldest and largest Victorian neighborhood. Not only was there a reawakening of the notorious Witchcraft Trials that happened 200 years earlier, but people were also accused of being vampires and conversing with the dead – all while serial murders and molesters lurked just out of sight. Explore this quaint post-Civil War suburb, its architectural gems and strange statuary that tourist rarely get to see. Then delve into the concerns of the people who lived here, their art, science, politics and stories of true crime, with demonstrations on Victorian phantasmagoria and the new fields of forensics and toxicology. Did you know that one of Boston’s wealthiest entrepreneurs was a woman? So was America’s first accused vampire. We’ve also hosted mad scientists, homicidal healthcare workers and psychologists who treated the mentally ill in unsavory ways.

Salem is a beautiful, historic city best known for its tragic 'Witch' Trials. Our walk and talk will provide an overview of our history, from our founding in 1626 to the Witch Hysteria of 1692, to the current day, with some sites from Hocus Pocus tossed in.

We'll cover about 2 miles. As a resident, I share a local perspective to help bring Salem alive for you and help with any tips that may make your visit more enjoyable. Our tour is historical, but I may sprinkle in a few legends and hauntings along the way. I am very flexible with my tour dates and times, so drop me a note if you don't see something that works for you. I also offer a haunted tour through Airbnb. If you are visiting Salem during the summer or fall, I suggest you schedule your tour early as they can sell out.

There are several pick-up points and I am happy to help arrange this for you.
Politically Incorrect Food Tour
There are many food tours in the North End (Boston's Little Italy). What set's my tour apart besides my politically incorrect style is that out of the bunch of food tours that run I am truly a local. (BORN AND RAISED) When I say there are no locals that do these food tours I truly mean that all the other guides that portray themselves as locals are not even from the neighborhood. Not only they weren't born here most don't even live here now. Trust me it's more fun with a real local whom everyone knows. - We will eat our way through Hanover Street where we will discover the best pasticcerias that offer the best cannoli, biscotti, and other Italian favorites. We will discuss the best of the best restaurants and coffee shops. With my culinary background and years of living here and of course eating here you will learn how to not get caught up in the tourist traps. •We will visit authentic Salumeria (Italian Deli) where you will sample best Italian sub ever. -We will visit hidden gems where you will discover a bakery in a basement of 100-year-ol structure •Visit a very unique 80- coffee and spice shop. -Also some secret stops that we will keep as a surprise. -Most of all you will taste great foods and you will laugh all day long.

This will in include stories about Whitey Bulger, the Boston Strangler, the Mafia and more! There is mature language on this tour, so it is not recommended for children under 12. Parental discretion is advised. Other things to note Walking shoes, water, umbrella in case of rain. Be on time, tour starts promptly at the time indicated for the consideration of other guests.
