This tour turned out to be one of the highlights of our visit to Salem. We had been somewhat disappointed with our visit of the Salem Witch Museum. Strolling down Essex Street in the afternoon a nice witch (did not encounter any bad or mean ones while there) approached us and presented a brochure and invited us to attend The... More

Thought this would be fun for Hallowe'en but it was a disappointing waste of time. Very trashy shops and downmarket cafes. Went in a 'museum' where the attendant spoke loudly on his phone the whole time. Do yourself a favour and give the place a miss. The quaint harbour area nearby was so much better and very interesting.

We had a great time both times we've gone on this tour. There's a lot of good information put forth on the tour from practicing witches from the local area. Not only do the tour guides have a lot of good info, they're also very entertaining too.

Im glad I went with my colleagues in this tour. I got to learn about the history of the 'Salem witches'- the drama, the misconceptions and the probability that all that took place could have been a result of misguided assumptions and prejudices.

nice walk to get the feel of Salem. Takes you on a 45 walking tour. Only thing that bothered me, was that you pay for this, a tourist are allowed to join your group, take pictures and get all the info for free....nothing is said to them.

We started our experience of Salem with the Witch Walk the night before Halloween. Our guide Tom was the best!

The museums in town are great. I've been to Salem a few times over the years, so I've been to just about all of them. This year was the first time I did The Salem Witch Walk. I loved it. Our tour guide Lady Ginger was funny and fun while she led us around town giving us a brief history... More

Every year, we go to Salem as a pilgrimage to the victims of the 1692 witch hunts and because we enjoy the energy and Halloween atmosphere. We've been on Salem's historical walking and trolley tours as well as visited many of the witch-hunt attractions over the years. Let's just say I'm not a casual Salem tourist; I'm something of a...
