History & Hauntings of Salem Guided Walking Tour

755 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.

Very nice but unfortunately I was only able to see from afar. Due to it being privately owned the trees are covering the house and there were no inside tours due to Covid.

Nice historical tour. Interesting and beautiful. We were outside only due to Covid, but the price of admission is low ($7) and it was a nice day. Very friendly staff and well kept grounds.

due to covid, the house was closed. however the gardens were open was a guided walking tour. download the app and start walking. very informative. stop and sit by the railing for a bit and absorb the beautiful shore, water, and light house views.

I would love to give it a great review, but when we arrived - it was closed as were the gardens... Closed Wednesday and Thursday. I drove 2 hours to tour this.
