I expected this tour to be about the history of Salem with the focus on the witch trials, but it ended up being more about the modern day practice of witchcraft, which was very insightful, but not what I had planned to do. It was certainly educational because I never thought of witchcraft to be about the practice of "good"... More

Sam was great! Very upbeat and knowledgable about the history of the area. Loved the extra detail about the current lives of witches. Awesome learning experience, I highly recommend it!

Quality tour, Tom was our guide and was great, entertaining and very energetic. Tour was not as much about the Salem Witch Trials but more about spiritualism in general and in the area.

We got to see a lot of Salem. Tom was very interesting and we had a great time. There was a good balance of history and witchery :)

My kids are 12, 9, and 7 and they enjoyed the tour as much as we did. I agree that an open mind is a must. We learned the truth about the trials in Salem and the practice of witchcraft then and now. Tom was full of knowledge about the city of Salem itself, too!

My sister and I really enjoyed it! We went to Salem wanting to learn more about the history of it and about the witch's trial and we... More

We went on the 3 o'clock tour and the ritual at the opening went off without a hitch but not five minutes into the walking segment, the skies opened up and there was a torrential downpour. Nevertheless, our tour guide Sam stayed optimistic and found us dry (or dryish) places to hide while she continued the tour. Even soaking wet,... More

I was on a bunch of tours, but, the Salem Witch Walk was by far the best. Tom our guide (who is a practicing witch) was wonderful. You could tell he was really into telling about the witches of today & their beliefs. Plus about the poor people that were accused & killed. He didn't rush at all & answered... More
