Salem: Witch City Ghosts Haunted Walking Tour

1. Salem: Witch City Ghosts Haunted 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.

Great experience! So glad we got paired with our guide Sam. He took it to the next level with his costume and volume of speech. He told us about the history of each site and then a story of a ghost experience that happened in each place we visited.

Elizabeth was very knowledgeable on the happening in the city and takes pride in her tours.

Excellent way to experience Salem and all the history of the town.
