My family and I attended the walking tour last week and learned a lot about the witch trials of the 15th Century. I highly recommend to anyone visiting the area!

We had a nice walk around the area- learning all about the witch trials, the larger area's history and some food recommendations. We actually followed up on two of those and they were right on! Our guide was excellent- making sure we got around safely and sharing his extensive knowledge of Salem. One of the highlights was our stop at... More

This was a great tour. I learned so much! It is incredible how much history can be covered in just 2 hours. I would recommend this tour to anyone who wants to get to know the real Salem. Worth every penny.

Any shop can carry interesting things, and most shops in Salem do-but Bewitched in Salem is different because the (owner?) was a very welcoming gentleman who took time to chat with my family and I when we came in. We wanted to know why the Broom Closet was gone and he took the time to tell us what happened. In... More

Tons of unique and interesting inventory, Very pleasant and knowledgeable staff, and amazingly accurate readings by Lorrie. Will definitely make this place a regular stop. You never know what you might find in there on your next visit.

There are several types of walking tours in Salem. I specifically choose this tour because it wasn't a 'ghost tour'. It was all I hoped for and more! Tours are $16pp and we choose the 7pm tour and it wasn't concluded until 9ish. Jeff is a local who has a unique perspective on the town, its history, lore, and witches.... More

Jeff certainly knows his stuff about Salem. He goes in depth about the trials and the people involved. So much more information than at the museums. He is also very passionate about Salem and the history. Highly recommended.

Five stars is not enough to rate this tour. Jeff gives an historically accurate and compassionate rendition of what actually fuelled the witch hunts in this quaint little town while pointing out artifacts and architecture. Very informative and enlightening-no hocus-pocus. A must-do if visiting Salem. Even my five year old grandson enjoyed it.

Awesome way to learn a lot about local history-including the witch trials. Jeff gives you perspective on what happened and some idea of why it happened. Tour kept my 11 and 12 year olds engaged and asking questions. Skip all the witch labeled sites and join this tour. Highly recommend

We were on the 7 pm tour on 6/26/14. I won't really say anything here that others haven't said. Jeff is a terrific tour guide. The information encompasses colonial life, architecture, the history of Salem other than the witch trials, ghost stories, and a detailed account of every single thing about the Witch Trials. I left with a ton of... More
