About the Tour

Traditions since 1692

Welcome to our private In-Depth Salem History tour. We offer to you a private version of our complete history of Salem tour. All the other tours focus only on the witches of 1692 or the modern-day witches, but Salem is much more than that. We cover how the city created the 1%, the Witch Hysteria roots, the vast fortunes made here, the smuggling tunnels, the murder the game Clue is based on, the locals' perspective, HP Lovecraft, the Second Witch Hysteria of 1811, the humor, the political corruption, the Underground Railroad, a drunk elephant, the inventions, and the people who shaped American history throughout time!

Also, for something special, we can customize a tour for you. Just tell us what your interests are and we can build a one of a kind tour around them.

Either it is a Victorian/turn of the century photography tour, Architecture, Witch Trials, Maritime, Paranormal, or whatever you like we will customize something for you.
