Salem has a history unlike nearly any city in the United States. This tour offers a unique way to learn about the 1692 witch trials while taking a guided walk through some of Salem's most storied—and perhaps haunted—sites. You’ll get a combination of authentic New England history and an exploration of witchcraft, voodoo, vampires, and ghost sightings without too many gimmicks.
  • Explore with a guide: Get a deep sense of local history and legend from historians and paranormal investigators
  • Visit some of the city’s spookiest sites and examine photos for paranormal activity
  • Learn how to photograph anomalous energy, orbs, ectoplasms, and apparitions
  • Family friendly: Paranormal and horror stories are great for kids
What to Expect
Head to the Revere Bell in front of the Salem Visitor Center, where the tour begins. Set off on a light walking tour of the historic town center with a guide who is also a historian and paranormal investigator. Your guide will quickly delve into the history of the 17th-century Salem witch trials. Stop at Old Burying Point Cemetery, where you’ll find a witch trial judge's tombstone. Then, learn about the story of the slave Tituba, who was accused of practicing voodoo. Later, visit the Witch Dungeon to hunt for specters. The guide will help you search any photos you take for evidence of paranormal activity, such as orbs, apparitions, and ectoplasm. See, too, photos taken at some of Salem’s most haunted sites, and learn about how ghost hunters do their work. The tour takes a horror-story turn with New England vampire folklore and documented cases of blood-drinking, before finishing up back at the Revere Bell.

I have been a resident of Salem, MA for 8 years and every October I try to do something on the tourist spectrum. Dr. Vitka leads by far the most informative, historically correct, and entertaining tour. I usually bring my dog, Boomer, with me who is greeted by Vitka like a

We’ve done many different historical tours, and this was, by far, one of our favorites. We’ve been to Salem numerous times and have been to these places before, but Mike made them come alive through history and lore. We had an amazing time. Mike is both knowledgeable and

I try to go on a ghost walk/tour in every city that I visit (that has one). Even if it is not focused on finding ghosts, I love the stories. Out of about 20 or so tours that I have done in my life, this is one of my favorites. The storytelling was amazing, the stories

Tour is run by "Dr. Vitka." He takes you throughout Salem on what you'd expect...ghoulish stories, historical highlights and paranormal activities. When I purchased the tickets I was charged for two tours. I pointed that out to the doctor and despite his promises no refund

The tourguide was great! He was very considerate of each person in the group, spoke loudly and clearly, and whenever someone asked a question he would repeat the question for the entire group and answer it thoroughly. The night tour felt very safe and the spooky facts were a
