While a lot of people come to Salem because of their interest in the Salem Witch Trials, there is much more to the hauntings of Salem than supposed Witches.
Our Salem Ghost Tours take you beyond the commonly known history and dive deep into why we think Salem is one of the most haunted cities in the World. Of course, you're going to hear about the Witch Trials on most of our tours; however, we like to take the time to go beyond the Witch Trials and uncover Salem's hauntings unassociated with the Trials. Often, the people on our Ghost Tours find these 'other' stories even more interesting and spooky.

We like pushing the envelope, offering tourists and locals alike a chance to join our Guides and journey into areas of Salem which are not on the popular routes through town. Many of them are featured on television shows like Ghost Adventures or Ghost Hunters.

We understand that you may have some questions about our Ghost Tours - and you don't want to call. Below you can find the answers to some of the most commonly asked questions we get about our tours.
Are these walking tours?
ALL of our Salem Ghost Tours are Walking Tours. You do have other options, such as Carriage and Bus Ghost Tours. To FEEL the energy that our ghosts give off, you have to be in the actual places where the haunting takes place. Imagine walking through a haunted alley with all of the lights out or standing on what was once a battlefield. Are you already feeling the tingles up your spine?
Can I buy tickets for your Ghost Tours through Groupon?
Ghost City has never sold Groupon vouchers - and we never will. There are companies which offer their tickets for sale on Groupon. And if you're not worried about the quality of the tour you're getting - you can certainly spend some time on Groupon or Living Social and find tickets.
We know that our experiences are of the highest quality, with thousands of 5-star reviews from tourists and locals who have enjoyed them. Also, we often sell out - especially on the weekends and on Holidays. There is simply no reason why we'd sell our tours on Groupon.
Is this a Ghost Tour where we go into Haunted Places?
Some locations allow us to come in; most don't. Many of the locations that you'll be visiting are private residences. Obviously, the residents would not be happy about us coming into their homes. Therefore we do not go into most of the locations we visit.
Once I purchase tickets, can I get a refund?
All ticket sales are final. Like any other performance, and yes, our Tours are performances, we can only admit a limited number of people. Therefore, we cannot give you a refund should you decide not to attend.
However, we're not a bunch of unreasonable monsters. We allow our guests to reschedule their tickets to another date or time as long as you do it at least 12 hours in advance.
For your family ghost tours, what is the age of a child?
When it comes to buying tickets for our tours, the following classes of tickets are based on age.
Keep in mind, some of our tours are simply for ages 16+ or 21+ only. For those tours, there is only one ticket type you can choose from.
What days of the week are your Ghost Tours available for?
All of our Tours run 7 days per week. In addition, we often open up additional time slots for our tours as the original time sells out. If you want to book a tour, Ghost City Tours will ensure that we are able to fit you in a tour. We still advise you to purchase your tickets as soon as you know which tour you want to take.
