Capture the historic spirit of Salem's yesteryear on this award winning, daily, 90-minute, all outside walking tour that is available year-round. Discover the truth about Salem's infamous Witch Trial Hysteria. Experience the authentic story of Salem's most notorious murder. Encounter how Nathaniel Hawthorne spent much of his life trying to escape the legacy of a hanging judge. Find out the Salem locations used in the blockbuster movie Hocus Pocus, but remember the tour is not based on the movie, rather it's based on Salem's rich and vibrant history. Since 2003, Susan Metzger has led this tour, and TripAdvisor reviewers praise her guiding saying that she is "an amazing storyteller!" More than fifteen stops dot the tour route, including Salem's old jail -- a one-time residence for the Boston Strangler, the site of the Old Witch Gaol (prison), the Witch Trial Memorial, the field where Giles Corey was pressed to death, and a cemetery where a Witch Trial Hysteria judge is buried. You'll also hear about Salem's 300-year-old curse and a colonial Tory that lingers around the mansion he lived and died in during the American Revolution.
