History & Hauntings of Salem Guided Walking Tour

941 reviews
There are many Salem tours out there but few are as compelling as this one, led by a local historian who brings alive the city's history at the time of day you choose. If you enjoy being scared, pick a nighttime tour led by lantern light. Visit the Burying Point, as well as modern-day practicing witches as your guide tells stories of the haunted history of Salem, Massachusetts.

We had heard about the village but couldn't find it. When we finally did it was well worth the admission for sure. Wonderful replica's of a Salem village. A must see.

It is only a $5 entry fee and it is interesting however there is no signage explaining anything of what you are looking at. We just went to see the opening of Hocus Pocus and Zachary Binks 'house' from the movie. I am not sure if there are usually tours but because of COVID you basically just entered the area and walked around and could go into some of the houses.

Awful, rude, and totally disrespectful worker ( the woman who runs it of a higher up.) Went for a tour that we paid/ made a donation, and was not allowed in. There were changes made during COVID, but she allowed other one, but not us. ( Yes we followed the mask mandate, had negative test results readily available, were polite, and ready for what she had to offer.) BUT instead she was completely disrespectful, upset our tour guide to the point of crying and had the rest of the group let down and disappointment.

From the pictures I have seen from various places to check out in Salem such as the witch house/museum and the gable house for short, I was overall a bit disappointed. I liked it in the fact that there are numerous restaurants and witch stores to really give the visiting folks the witchy vibe but the town does the opposite. There is trash everywhere going into and out of the town. The roads are awful. Full of potholes. They are horribly uneven with horribly marked lane markers for driving. Also the very overwhelming amount of modernization that has come to the town has ruined the actual mystery and the ambience that the town probably once had, but now it overshadowed by enormous modern hotels and parking garages. The houses that are on the trip as a must see are overshadowed by the ugliness of the town and to me, it ruined the trip so much so that I probably won't go back. If you like shopping and eating, you would like it. If your a history buff trying to get the experience of going to a location rich with the history your trying to connect to, you'll be disappointed as it feels bulldozed and destroyed over by modernization. Sad part about it is, I heard other folks who were visiting saying the same thing, as we were waiting in line to get into one of the stores. The pictures of the town are misleading. Sure there is a spooky looking house but next to it is a trash pit or a busted up parking lot. Gallows hill is now underneath a Walgreens, if that gives you any insight.
