THE ONLY TOUR IN SALEM FOR CHILDREN AND FAMILIES
For over ten years, parents traveling with kids have chosen Salem Kids Tours for a fun, well-researched and fascinating trip through time. Many times we have heard from kids, “I didn’t want the tour to end.” Parents have described our tours as the highlight of their trip to Salem. We are happy to show you around. We love kids, we understand their unique needs, and we look forward to meeting you on one of our tours.
We offer two tours, following two different routes. Many families opt to take both tours in the course of their adventures in Salem with children. Our tours are led by teachers and graduate students who are all certified tour guides in Salem.
Our Salem Kids History Tour tells true tales from our long history, including the infamous Witchcraft Trials. Find out about an amazing escape, a famous phone call, and a moving graveyard on this spin through Salem’s historic downtown. This is a great orientation tour to help you find your way around the vibrant and walkable heart of the city. Meets at 185 Essex Street.
Our Slightly Spooky Tour combines true tales from Salem’s past with some mild ghost stories just for kids. Our aim is not to scare the heck out of your kids, but to provide a little shiver and bit of mystery for kids who like ghost stories. This tour follows a route that is near the downtown, but it’s a little off the beaten path, very picturesque, and you’ll feel as if you stepped back in time. The tour ends at our historic and creepy Broad Street Cemetery, which was established in 1655. Meets at 316 Essex Street.
