“A Wicked Good Tour!” We are Salem’s one and only walking tour for children and families. There is no other tour like this one; and all of our expert guides are also teachers.
Salem Kids Tour meets at 185 Essex St., Pamplemousse
This is the original, classic Salem Kids Tour, which is a fun, kid friendly tour of Salem’s mysterious past. As we walk through Salem’s historic downtown, kids will hear Witchcraft Trials stories, but that’s not all! We talk about the Golden Age of Sail, famous visitors to Salem, a “moving” cemetery, and an incredible escape. The tour ends at the Witchcraft Trials Memorial.
Slightly Spooky Tour meets at 316 Essex St., First Church in Salem, Unitarian Universalist
In addition to historical stories, ghost stories are included on this tour. This tour is a bit off the beaten path, and makes its way past some of Salem’s most beautiful buildings in the renowned McIntire District. We’ll visit some of the most haunted and historic sites in Salem, hearing tales of famous authors, Salem’s connection to the Revolution, and of course, the infamous Witchcraft Trials. The tour ends in the ancient Broad Street Cemetery.
Real Pirates of Salem and Salem Kids Tour Family Combo Ticket
Immerse yourself in the stories of Real Pirates! The family-friendly pirate experience features the true tale of “Black Sam” Bellamy – the richest and one of the youngest pirates of all time – and Maria Hallett, the love of his life and so-called “Witch of Wellfleet.” You’ll also get to see real pirate treasure recovered from the wreck of the pirate ship Whydah.
On your Salem Kids Tour, you’ll take a walk through time as we explore the streets of Salem hearing tales from history with a touch of mystery. You’ll see the actual sites where suspicions of witchcraft unfolded, and you’ll hear about an amazing escape, a “moving” graveyard, and more. The walking tour begins at the Real Pirates of Salem at 285 Derby Street at 11:25am. The tour is one hour long, and ends at the Witchcraft Trials Memorial, which is just a five-minute walk from the Real Pirates.
