Good! 3.9/5 Expedia Guest Rating

Experience the thrills and chills of Puritan New England during a guided ghost tour through the town that became the epicenter of the Salem Witch Trials in 1692. Join an expert historian and travel through the city, experiencing a sense of suspense around every turn as you soak up a bit of history.

As evening settles on Salem, make your way into the heart of the city and meet an expert historian and folklorist. Begin by meandering past homes that date back to the 17th century, when Salem was a wealthy seaport, and imagine what life was like beyond these dimly lit facades when the wind whipped out the candlelight and residents were forced to hover by the fire to keep warm and stave off fright.

In downtown Salem, see a building where residents claim to have held long, chatty conversations with invisible guests. Glimpse the childhood home of American author Nathaniel Hawthorne and feel a sense of foreboding as you stroll past the house that served as inspiration for The House of Seven Gables, which sought to reveal the injustice of the fateful witch trials.

As the sun sinks toward the horizon, venture past increasingly spooky joints. Is that the mournful howl of a ghost you hear as you crest a hill en route to the old graveyard? Then, loop back to your starting point, your mind abuzz with the region's shocking and not-too-distant past.
