About Witch City Walking Tours
Salem’s most captivating tour, led by locals, teachers and historians. Our tours take guests through nearly 400 years of history. Dog friendly and handicap accessible! Find out why Salem was once the wealthiest city in the country. Discover what caused the 1692 Witch Trials hysteria. Stroll the cobblestoned streets taking in more than 300 years of architecture. Listen to wickedly chilling stories of supernatural activity. NOT a ghost tour. This is a HISTORY tour. Suitable for all ages. Advanced reservations highly recommended. Tour meets at 32 Derby Square at the three staircases. Please be advised: we do not enter the inside of *any* building in Salem on the tour. You do not enter the interior of any building.

History & Hauntings of Salem Guided Walking Tour

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.

Danielle was our tour guide and she was very engaging and interesting!! Our two and half hour two passed quickly and she filled it with a great deal of wonderful information about the history of Salem and I left knowing so much more about the area then I did when I started! Although the group was large she managed to keep everyone's attention and I must say this was the best walking tour I have been on and I have been a part of many in my 71 years. I highly recommend using this company and if I return to your area I will definitely take another one of your tours! Thanks for a wonderful experience!

Vanessa was very engaging and entertaining. She knew history, and folklore/legends. As an 8th grade teacher she had a great personality that keep us engaged, and searched for shade (90 degree day), whenever possible. Highly recommend!

Last night we went on a walking tour of Salem, MA and it was by far the best walking tour we have ever experienced! Our guide, Katie, was warm, engaging, funny, and super knowledgeable. The two hours flew by and quite honestly we could have stayed listening to her for another two hours. In fact, we tried to do that by booking another tour with her today but she is off! Highly recommend this tour and Katie is amazing!!

Guide was very knowledgeable about local history and kept our attention throughout the tour. Large group but we were still able to follow easily and hear everything.
