Trip advisor listed this very high, and we thought it would be a great way to get some local insight on Salem. It wasn't. It was very touristy, and not very informative. The tour started with the guide expecting everyone to participate in a pagan ritual. My wife and I are pretty accepting of all beliefs, but we are Christian,... More

Dear reviewer, We're sorry that you were not ready for this sort of tour, but we must take issue with the accusation of being deceptive. Our tagline, seen everywhere our logo appears, is "Salem's Only magical tour." If you read the description at the top of this page, any of our flyers, or even read our many positive reviews, you...

I went on this tour on 10/10. It was very informative! I have lived near Salem my entire life, but never knew much about Wicca, so it was very interesting to learn about it. You also have the opportunity to take part in a ritual before the walk begins. Our tour guide explained every part of the ritual to us... More

Our guide wasn't a crone with a hook nose, or Elizabeth Montgomery, but a rather handsome long-haired young man. The walk starts with an introduction to 'real' witchcraft (wicca, in this case) and a ritual, with detailed explanations throughout. Then we started our walk and found that our young guide was charming and entertaining as well as very knowledgeable on... More

Sam our tour guide was an excellent guide in our witchy walk on a full moon night about Salem. It was very enlightening and would do again. This is a can not miss if you visit Salem and do a tour.

Based on reviews on Trip Advisor, we chose this tour for our road trip to Salem. It turned out to be fantastic – a great blend of history, ghost stories, superstitions and a better understanding of real witches. Our tour guide, Tom, was hilarious and informative at the same time. He had a great knowledge of the area and was... More

Just took the tour today with Tom. Though my friends and I are total skeptics, this tour was really great. Tom is knowledgable, funny, and interesting. Feel free to ask any questions in this non-intimidating environment. You can even ask for restaurant recommendations, etc. Also, the tour is a nice walk through Salem on a beautiful fall day.

We went into Salem for the day and particularly wanted an evening walking tour. I felt the Salem Witch Walk would be an interesting twist without the typical ghost stories. My kids, 11 and 12, enjoy scary experiences, but we all also appreciate historical accuracy and I felt this event description provided that. Our group for 7pm at first was... More

He was energetic and eager to answer any and all questions and made everyone feel comfortable and anxious to learn more.
