Full description

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.

We had a great time on our tour! I tour guide Beverly was amazing and extremely knowledgeable. We learned so much about different places in Salem as well as had a fun time hearing ghost stories in the dark. 11/10 tour and we would love to do it again. Highly recommended!

It was a great tour. The only thing that could be improved is the meeting place to start the tour. It wouldn't be an issue if not a busy night in Salem but on a busy night it was confusing to find the starting location and guide. The place was so crowded.

Beverly was awesome! She took great care of us in busy Salem, shared enthusiastic historical accounts in addition to spooky haunted happenings. I highly recommend the extended tour, as it leads you even further along the path of the witch trial events. We attended right at sundown and seeing the town in active darkness during the tour added an enjoyable energy.
