Meet your licensed tour guide at the Revere Bell in front of the Salem Visitor Center and set off on an easy walking tour through the historic town center. Guides are not costumed actors, but real historians and experienced paranormal researchers.

Hear about what really happened during the famous witch trials of the 17th century. Visit the Old Burying Point cemetery to see the tombstone of trial judge John Hathorne, and learn about the slave Tituba, who played a key role in the witch hysteria and was herself accused of voodoo practices. Keep an eye out for specters at the original Witch Dungeon, and get help examining your own photos for evidence of paranormal activity such as orbs, ectoplasm, and apparitions. See real photos taken at some of Salem’s most haunted sites that bear traces of ghostly activity, and learn about the scientific methods used by ghost hunters today.

Beyond witches, Salem has been the center of other dark legends including accounts of vampirism. Hear shocking tales of New England’s vampire folklore and documented cases of blood drinking for a true and disturbing sense of how this once-sleepy town became New England’s horror capital.

Great tour, guide was very personable and made the tour fun. Went on Halloween night, so it was especially crowded, however the guide navigated us through the crowd easily and also dropped multiple new bits of story/history that we didn't know about the locations we stopped. Would recommend!
