Overview
First-time visitors that want to uncover the wild history of Salem, Massachusetts—from pirates and witchcraft to the Sons of Liberty—shouldn't miss this off-the-beaten-path history tour. As you stroll with your guide, you pass key historic sights like the Old Burying Point Cemetery and Historic Derby Square, and learn all about Salem, from the city's founding to its economic history as a bustling port.
Highlights
    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.

    I did the Black Cat Tour the weekend before Halloween with my family. We had a great time, but the tour was one of the highlights. Daniel was a great tour guide. He was funny, but also very knowledgeable. Highly recommend!!

    How does this guy remember ALL THESE names and facts! He was a wealth of information. I was so interested to learn about Houdini's escape from the jail too. At the witches burial memorial we did stand in one place for a while while he was talking, so my ADD started to kick

    This tour was a great addition to our trip. The information complemented the other facts we had learned throughout our visit and overlapped very little, providing us with a lot of new insight. Highly recommend!

    We booked this tour while in Salem for Halloween and it was our favorite part of the trip! Daniel was basically the highlight of our trip and his voice coupled with insightful knowledge of Salem’s history and ghost stories made us wish he was he was a bit more single! Seriously

    Excellent tour! A fantastic way to spend Halloween. Adriana was fun and engaging and we learned about a whole new side of Salem. I even got a picture of a ghost in a window!
