About the tour

Salem is synonymous with the Witch Hysteria of 1692, when 20 innocent victims were executed under the accusation of witchcraft. While we may never know the whole truth, explore some of the theories surrounding the madness that gripped Salem, and stroll past beautiful mansions that reflect the great wealth of Salem in the 1800's. We will literally see Salem 'for better or worse', and perhaps throw in a little "Hocus Pocus" along the way.


Meet your local guide

Beth OGrady

You could say Beth has been in training to be a local tour guide her whole life, as she has spent 60 years living in and learning about her hometown. She has strolled, jogged and dog-walked around every neighborhood, and can give you a well rounded perspective of how modern day Salem relates to its complicated history. Walking around with Beth is like visiting a good friend or a cool aunt who are excited to show you around their hometown.

Beth OGrady has been guiding since Jan 2018

Beth provided an overview of Salem, exactly as she said she would at start of tour. The tour was packed with information from a very knowledgeable guide, learnt a lot and will join Beth's future tours.

Guide’s first tour. Informative. It can be better organized and less rushed. There were limited opportunities for postcards. Hopefully the tours will improve
