Me and my husband went here after we bought an "Hysteria Pass" for this and the Wax Museum and an info scroll for the Witch Memorial. We bought tickets from the wax museum and the lady was very friendly and the staff in the Witch Village were also friendly. There were only four people on our tour so that was... More

If you are like me and prefer to avoid crowds, don't go to Salem MA during the month of October. It was nothing but wall to wall people. I had hoped to show my parents a little history since we are related to the Putnams, but that was simply not possible as it was wall to wall people. It is... More

This tour was so boring. The young guys at the establishment need to learn some manners when it comes to customer service, we simply asked for more information on the tour before buying the tickets and they responded with please buy tour ticket. never again

This was a big waste of time, money and energy. Unprofessional, inaccurate. The guide couldn't answer questions. Was incredibly disappointed.

Not a great place if you want to get your moneys worth. The teenage girl at the front desk was so unprofessional...didn't seem to care about her job...Our tour guide was alright. He seemed very nervous and swore a few times on the tour. Was not worth the money and I would never go back.

My daugther and I took this short tour and really did enjoy it. There was a girl that did the talking and she was very knowledgable and it was very educational. They talked about the history behind the nostalgia of "witches in Salem." I really did enjoy it, it's not for small children.

Total waste of time and money. The guides showed zero passion or interest in the subject matter. Can't believe we blew $8 each on this. The props were a shambles, looked so cheap and plastic. Really, please do not visit this place and watch someone mowing the lawn instead - you would at least see more dedication.

This tour is ok but not great. It wasn't about the Witch Trials, it was about witches in general. The displays were ok but not great. Our tour guide was very good talking about witches and their history. The presentation wasn't scary. The presenter talked about where witches came from and why they fought. They thought old women were witches... More

Not worth it. Save your money and go somewhere else, like the Salem Maritime National Historic Site or the Witch Dungeon Museum. This is so NOT worth the money.

We thought this tour would be something totally different. The staff were great, but our tour guide was extremely nervous since it was just myself and my husband on the tour. The actual content of the exibit is what was dissapointing. The displays looked very amateurish, and there didnt seem to be any flow between the different sections. The tour... More
