The Salem Witch Tour is pretty good, it was decently paced, full of useful information and was fun. However, in comparison to the Bewitched Tour, the Salem Witch Tour is not as solid. It's a little more showy, the presentation just not as authentic. I think the tour would have been a five, if I had not been to the... More

My husband and I recently visited Salem for our honeymoon. We went on the Witch Walk with Tom. He was amazingly full of knowledge about Salem and witchcraft, being a practicing witch himself. While in Salem, we turned down all the other shop tours to go on the witch walk and we were so glad we did. Not only did... More

Sammy the lady ginger witch was an absolutely amazing guide! She has the perfect personality for tours, not one second was mundane. She's so knowledgable and has a great sense of humor. I'd recommend her and this tour for a full experience of modern day witches mixed with historical facts about Salem. I wish it didn't have to end.

Our guide, Samantha, was really personable and informative. She offered an experience unique from other salem tours. I would definitely recommend this along with any historical or ghost tours.

We lived this tour! Our guide Tom was fantastic and so knowledgeable about the history of the witch trials and also taught us about witchcraft. We got to participate in a ritual which was very interesting. The tour was not just based on the history of the city but focused on the history of witchcraft and what it means to... More

Our tour guide for our walk was P.J. We were the only ones in the group so we had the benefit of more time with P.J. He is very knowledgable about Salem, and you can see that he has a true passion for what he does. The pace of the tour was perfect, a great way to see and learn... More

This is not a tour about the history of Salem; it does touch briefly on different events from history, but the tour is about modern day witches. It is very informative and is educational to those who do not know much about modern paganism. Our tour guide, Tom, was a real hoot and knew a lot about the subject, being... More

These folks work hard to make an interesting, informative, engaging, and memorable experience - and they succeed!!! Tom was the perfect tour guide -- funny, fun, so knowledgeable, and very open to questions. The opening ritual was fabulous; a great experiential start. Make the Salem Witch Walk with Tom a definite must-do during your Salem visit. Totally worth the reasonable... More

This was such a fun, interesting and exciting way to learn about Witches! We had such a good time and we learned so much! I heard Katy Perry did the walk too recently. How exciting to go shortly after her!
