Why do we offer Ghost Tours in Salem?

If you start talking about haunted cities in America, it probably won't be long before Salem enters the conversation. For over 300 years, stories of ghosts, hauntings, and the paranormal have been told in Salem.

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 which are not associated with the Trials. Often times, the people on our Ghost Tours find these 'other' stories to be even more interesting and spooky.

Our Tour Guides are the best Tour Guides in Salem. You'll enjoy watching our Guides bring our haunted history to life as you hear about the hauntings and ghosts in the spooky streets of Salem. Always friendly and eager to answer questions, our Guides are well liked by our guests and very experienced.

  • Do you think a ghost tour isn't for you? WRONG! Whether you're a believer, a skeptic, or someone in between, you'll be entertained on our Paranormal Experiences.
  • Looking for something fun to do while in town? Our Ghost Tours are World-Famous for a reason! People just like you LOVE joining our guides for a night of haunted fun.
  • Ghost City offers Salem's best family-friendly and Salem's ONLY adults only ghost tour. Do you have the kids with you? Maybe you want a tour experience designed for just the adults? Ghost City has it all.

Frequently Asked Questions

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 which 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?

  • Walking Tours allow you to immerse yourself in the stories we tell.
  • Walking is good for you, and it is a great way to walk off that amazing dinner you just had!
  • You're not crammed into a carriage, almost certainly squished in next to someone you'd rather not be squished up against.

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.

  • Ages 0-5: We do not charge anything for anyone 5 or under. They get to attend our tours for free!
  • Ages 6-11: This is considered a child ticket
  • Ages 12+: This age range is considered an adult ticket.

Keep in mind, some of our tours are simply for ages 16+ 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.

Purchasing tickets for our Ghost Tours

You can purchase your tickets online, or by phone. In either case, you'll receive your tickets immediately via email. You must buy your tickets in advance.
