What To Expect

Choose from a daily evening tour to explore under the cover of night, or opt for an afternoon tour on weekends. 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.


Walk the streets where the infamous Witch Trials took place with an officially licensed public guide and paranormal investigator!

Boring find a better tour. Waste of time. Very long winded and the title of the tour is misleading. We left half way through bc it was so disappointing.
Wonderful experience

Wonderful tour guide, he spoke very clearly and loudly enough that all of the group could hear and he made sure we were all together before he spoke. He had a lot to say and it was all very interesting.

So this tour was...
Deana_F, Oct 2022
So this tour was repetitive of the black cat tour which that tour guide was amazing. This tour literally the same stories and not much of vampires and voodoo. It was at the tale end of the tour and about voodoo in New Orleans. If there isn’t much to discuss of voodoo and vampires in salem then this tour should be canceled
The guide was engaging...

Best tour with Michael
Terry_O, Oct 2022
What a great experience! Micheal was the best story teller and guide I think we could have ever asked for. We also had to sign waivers cause a film crew was filming our group that night for Hulu and we had 4 drag queens with us. Very special night to experience! Thank you Michael!!
