Salem Kids Tours

Salem Kids tour is Salem’s one and only walking tour for children of all ages, families, and the young at heart. The one-hour outdoor Salem walking tour with licensed guide Alicia Diozzi, is interactive and fun. Hear mysteries and tales that took place along the route. Learn about the Witch Trials, visit the only house in Salem with a direct connection to the trials, step onto the “set” of a Hocus Pocus filming location, find out about Salem’s connection to Alexander Hamilton and the Revolution, examine an authentic sterling silver artifact, and end the adventure in an ancient cemetery.

On this tour, explore Salem off the beaten path, winding our way down some secret paths usually not seen by visitors.  In addition to true tales of history, there is an option to add intriguing ghost stories, guaranteed to provide a few shivers and giggles.  My ghost stories are not intense or tragic, but rather involve mysterious apparitions and things that go bump in the night. Let me know if you want me to play it up, or tone it down. If you and your kids are curious about something specific, or are studying something in school that we can explore on the tour, you might want to book a private tour with me so I can focus on your specific interests.   We meet in front of 316 Essex St., The First Church in Salem, Unitarian Universalist.

Alicia Diozzi, M.Ed. leads the tours, with occasional help from other qualified guides.  Alicia is a middle school social studies teacher with a background in drama, who loves to share her joy and enthusiasm for learning with students and tour guests alike. Salem Kids Tours was created to provide a high-quality, accurate tour for visiting families. Typical history tours can be boring for kids, and typical haunted tours are too intense.  We want to offer a great tour to children and families that is fun, funny, and educational!

See you in Salem!

5-Star Reviews for Salem Kids Tours

Exactly what we were looking for!

Lovely small group that kept my kids interested the entire time! My (usually reserved) 11 year old made an effort to be in the front and stand next to our tour guide. Half way through the tour I checked in with our 13 year old who said "I'm intrigued!" which is high honors for her haha! Super friendly guide who answered all of our questions.... highly recommend!

Highly recommended Tour!

We were traveling with our 9 yr old daughter and wanted to do a walking tour of Salem but didn’t know if a lot of them would be scary or over her head, so we were happy to find this wonderful tour! Here’s our daughter’s review: “It was fun, exciting and very educational! Can’t find another tour guide as exciting as this!” The tour guide was awesome with the kids and was great at communicating leading up to the tour via email. Highly recommend!

Such a great tour!

Came to Salem with 3 adults and 4 kids - 2 from the Salem area, 2 from Cape Cod, ages 8 to 14. Very interesting information and most personable presenter - a teacher of social studies. She asked the ages of the kids and I’m sure targeted their age interests. Had a great time, and all were attentive even with multi distractions around us. I would highly recommend this tour!

Great Tour!

We had an amazing tour with Alicia! She is a 6th grade social studies teacher and is chock full of great info and history, while keeping it fun, informative and entertaining. We went with a group of kids ranging from elementary school to 9th grade plus some parents and all enjoyed! I highly recommend to anyone looking for a great activity with the kids, whether you live close by or are from out of the area!
