    What to Expect
    Arrive at the Salem Historical Tours office on 8 Central Street. Here, you’ll greet your costumed guide and follow the light of a lantern to some of Salem’s most haunted locations.

    Listen to commentary dripping with dark humor and historical facts as you visit a spine-tingling cemetery and stand upon sites associated with the infamous Salem Witch Trials. 

    See, too, buildings inhabited by restless specters and learn about some of Salem’s dearly departed residents. Bid your guide farewell at a central Salem spot after your evening of exploration.

    The tour was extremely interesting. The tour guide, Bob, was genuinely engaged in the topic and had great character. He went above the call of duty by showing us the way to the shop and train station
