I wasn't quite sure what to expect on this tour. I read reviews , but I was curious to see how they would blend the history of Salem with modern-day witchcraft--especially since those murdered during the witch trials weren't witches! That said, I went into it with a lot of curiosity and an open mind, and I'm glad I did.... More

I was pretty excited to go on the Salem Witch Walk. A small group of us gathered and participated in a ritual - which essentially left us holding a gem blessed with travel and communication. A good start! We then strolled around Salem, led by a very interesting and passionate witch who told us all about the history of witchcraft... More

The Salem Witch Walk was fun and very informative. Our guide Tom was absolutely fantastic! Tom gave us fascinating insight into Wiccan beliefs and practices and was very knowledgeable about Salem's history and the Witch trials of 1692. If you're planning a trip to Salem, I would recommend taking this tour.

This was terrible. Our fault for not being more careful when booking it (we booked it just hours before when leaving to go visit Salem). Even though it was a witch tour, we expected a certain level of historical background. Got none. Started with this phoney seance type ritual behind their shop that took up the first 15 minutes of...

Christian D, Owner at The Salem Witch Walk, responded to this review

We often use these reviews to identify where our tour and guides improve but I always agonize whether to respond to this particular type of review because it mixes halft-ruths, complete fabrications, and outright religious bigotry. But I'm responding because I want others to know what kind of tour we are and what they should expect. This review is unfair.... More

This was by far the highlight of our trip. Tom was so knowledgable and so much fun! We loved the ritual at the beginning and we were encouraged to ask questions throughout.

Had a great time learning about modern day witchcraft in Salem today and seeing some of the history that makes Salem famous. Lady Ginger (Sammy) was a great tour guide! Funny and informative, and very helpful. I recommend this tour if you only have a short time in Salem and want to see some history and learn some cool facts.
