Where are we going today?

Salem is a fascinating city, filled with history, stories....and some other residents who you might not be able to always see!

The Salem Night Tour gives you a great way to see the city, and hear all the stories, from a whole new perspective....night time!

Every night at 8pm, licensed guides will take you through all the history, legends, and infamous hysteria of 1692...of course the year of the Salem Witch Trials. The walking tour takes you through downtown Salem, and at a comfortable pace so the whole family can enjoy it!

Can't get enough of magical Salem? You might want to check out the Victorian Night Tour! There are so many haunted sites to see, and stories to tell, than John - their BEST guide - will take you out with nothing but a lantern to light your way down the famous Chestnut Street, Broad Street cemetery (don't be scared now!), Broad Street, Ropes Mansion, Hawthorne's Athenaeum, and some other chilling places!

If you love the film "Hocus Pocus", then you will love this tour because it goes to many sites where it was filmed!

If you choose this tour, then it's part of a 2 night special where you attend the Night Tour first. It's an extension of your first tour, and the information is just as fun!

If you have younger kids in the family and prefer a day tour, at 2pm Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays they offer the ultimate guide to the city's secrets, but in the day. You can still take home all the chills and stories of the night ones!

The Salem Night Tour is a great way to see the city from another point of view, and hear stories of people and events that actually happened...while you're in the spot they DID happen!

Enjoy kids....don't forget to say hi to those other residents!

    This is a great tour to take if you visit Salem. I liked that the tour included locations and stories about the witch trials as well a few stories of not related to witches but just to Salem.
    Our tour guide was Kevin and he was really great. The staff was very friendly and easy to find the location.

    I've never taken a walking tour in any city so I don't have much to go off of but what I can say is that our tour guide was very long winded, got off track a lot and wasn't very quick to get to the point and discuss the history of the buildings we were actually standing in front of. The only thing he did do fast was his walking, or should I say running. He ran from one point to another. There were elderly people in the group and he made it hard for them to keep up. We left mid-tour because the rambling got to be unbearable. 3 other people got smart...Read More

    Terrible. I think the poor old guy had head lice. He was scratching his scalp like mad & flitting his long gray hair all around. Not to mention it was very boring & we couldn't wait for it to end

    The tour guide was really fun and upbeat and we enjoyed the stories. I have never been on a ghost tour before so can not compare it with others. Some of the stories were interesting and informative. Others were simply fun. The price was affordable. My problem was that the crowd was so large that maybe the 1/3 of the people towards the back could not hear even though the tour guide was speaking in a clear and loud voice. For about half the tour I found myself in a position of not being able to hear well, or at all. If I had go guess I would...Read More

We left mid-tour because the rambling got to be unbearable. 3 other people got smart and left before we called it quits. The only plus is that I had a mildly weird experience at St. Peter's Church. I got a picture of what appears to be a red-ish colored face in the corner of the window.

Way too many for a walking tour with a guide with no mic.
