    What to Expect
    Our day tours begin 2pm at the Axelrod Walkway Park next to the Peabody Essex Museum. Your guide will take you on a unique route of Salem, visiting sites that inspired Poe, Lovecraft and Hawthorne. As our tour is unscripted, your guide will take you away from the more crowded areas and give you the true stories behind the legends.

    We visit such locations as The Old Burying Point Cemetery and Witch Trials Memorial, The Old London Coffee House (meeting place of the Sons of Liberty), The Old Town Hall, Historic Derby Square, and much more!

    All of our guides are trained and licensed performers AND historians. We take great pride in the fact that every story we tell has the research to confirm every fascinating detail. They will make YOU and your experience their first priority.

    In a city like Salem, you may be tempted to pass up paying for a tour when you could do a self-guided one for free. In this case, however, you would be doing yourself a great disservice. Our tour guide, Daniel, gave the best tour...More

    A group of us were looking to spend an afternoon in Salem to celebrate a friend's birthday. Daniel from Black Cat Tours did an incredible job, sharing his deep, deep knowledge of the area while keeping it interesting, interactive, and very entertaining.

    Our tour guide was VERY knowledgeable and friendly. It’s a long tour but actually only a short distance so if you don’t want to walk too far, it’s great.
