Our tour guide was Samantha and she was amazing! She is an actual witch, who is extremely knowledgable of both modern and old world witchcraft and isn't afraid to have fun with it. As someone who dabbles in witchcraft myself and already had some knowledge of the subject, I can say that she is definitely the real deal and you... More

Sam was our tour guide and despite having a mild injury she was a true professional and an bountiful source of information. Her conversations included the common stereotypes and their origins along with the current practice of witchcraft, a short demonstration of forming a circle and blessing some stones, and explaining some of the objects and symbols attributed to them....

I booked this tour as a side trip from Boston with my husband after reading all the great reviews. The town is very small and after walking around ourselves earlier in the day, we pretty much did the tour already. The tour guide was very energetic and knew her facts though and her name was Sammy. I was disappointed in... More

Tom was our guide on a 7pm tour. He was excellent!! Knows his stuff plus a great sense of humor! I don't want to spoil anyone's visit, so I will just say enjoy the walk, enjoy the history, and enjoy the amount of information he can offer. And he loves questions!

Due to the inflexibility and poor service of this company we couldn't actually go on our tour, and of course - no refunds. Do not book in advance, there are tons of other tours and you can walk right up to them in the street - then you can avoid disappointment like us.

Sammi was out guide. I was tired but once on the walk my energy climbed. She was very knowledgeable and gave good explanations. Willing to say "not sure". Watched to people in her group and was attuned to their needs.

We had a wonderful time with Tom as our tour guide. He made the tour funny and interesting all while keeping our attention. The woman greeting potential customers on the sidewalk was very friendly and we enjoyed talking with her. The overall experience was five star. We would recommend this to everybody who visits Salem, even non-believers. Thank you

Tom took us through Salem on a whorl wind tour of the heart of the city. He was friendly and well versed in both Wicca lore and Salem history. I would love to take this tour again.
