Salem: Ghosts, Witches, & Warlocks Guided Walking Tour

1. Salem: Ghosts, Witches, & Warlocks Guided Walking Tour

Meet your tour guide and venture through 8-12 different sites around the city, each one spookier than the last, starting with the historical Salem Old Town Hall. Continue down the eerie streets to explore the Old Burying Point Cemetery, a preserved burial ground that was established in 1637 where some prominent pilgrims and town officials were buried. This haunted tour takes you to different sites and reveals their true stories so that you can feel connected to the history that took place there. Experiencing these stories while at the sites where they occurred is a truly unique experience that can’t be recreated by simply reading about their history.  During your tour, find out how Salem became the center for all haunted happenings. The phenomenon is partially explained by Salem’s rich history and the fact that many of its oldest structures and sites are preserved today, including the famed Witch House.  Salem’s commitment to preserving this history has made it a perfect spot for spirits to linger and for visitors to experience a connection with the past.

The tour was great! Learned more details about Salem and locations of the prison and the dungeon. The ghost that still roam Salem, vampires and Tituba and what she was teaching or showing the ministers daughters. Overall a great tour and would recommend it to anyone.

This pass is definitely worth the money. Very easy to use. We did not feel like we had to linger at each attraction. The low cost allowed us to move from stop to stop quickly since we did not have much time in the city.

Tour was amazing. I was the only one who booked so it ended up being a private tour. Saeed was a great tour guide, very friendly and very knowledgeable, he told lots of interesting stories at each location. Great tour!

Erin was awesome! She was incredibly knowledgeable and was open to answering any and all questions we had for her.

Excellent trip to Boston, walking almost everywhere, visiting museums and taking tours of historical sites.
