This was a great introduction to the streets of Salem and its unique history. Tom the tour guide was very knowledgeable and excited about sharing his city with tourists. He really seems to love his job and really knows his stuff...it isn't just a rehearsed script. He loves answering questions, even the ones everyone always ask. A witch himself, Tom... More

It started in the back of the shop with Tom, our tour guide performing a ceremony and explaining it all each step of the way. It was a good introduction to what the tour was all about,... More

What a great way to spend some time in Salem on a sunny afternoon. Tom was our guide and, as others have said before, he does a great job. He's an accomplished raconteur.

A nice mix of history and culture, Demetris did a nice job. The tour started with a welcoming ritual where all the elements were described. I took my two children (11 & 14), both didn't really know what to expect. After the tour as we walked back to our hotel, we had a great conversation amongst ourselves.....So this tour is... More

Called for reservations .. The guy was very rude when I had questions .... He also told me he was not a tour guide and he was too busy to answer questions...

Tom the Tour guide presents a very relaxed tour full of key locations to the history of Salem. He will tell the facts and dispel the untruths of that time period. You will learn about witches and the craft. I throughly enjoyed the tour and will do it again on my next visit! I highly recommend it.

Tom, was our tour guide, and made our visit the absolute best! Extremely knowledgable, and enthusiastic to answer and sort out any misconceptions there might be. Tom is so passionate about Salem, the Witch Trials, the history and Wicca in general, that we continue to go back and take his tour, 2-3 times a year. A most do!
