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.

Come experience the darker side of Salem on our adults (16+) only 9PM walking tour of Salem. We retell the most spine-chilling tales of murder, mystery and macabre. Why did an insane woman in the early 1600s murder her child? Who was the famous hitman who murdered the slave trader in his sleep? Did the Boston Strangler really make a visit to Salem? These tales and much more will unfold on this whirlwind 90-minute tour of this mysterious seaside city. Not for the faint of heart, but for those who love a good scandalous story!

This tour is a combination of the real, actual murders and the Salem Witch Trials hysteria of 1692.

2.5 hour night tour that was very informative. Our tour guide was great!! She took time to answer questions. Best part was our tour was 8 people, whereas we passed other tours with 60 people. This is much more personalized

Neither. The dungeons are no longer in existence. They were destroyed in the 1950s. The accused victims were held in a prison that no longer exists.
