Good lesson from a practicing witch. Fun and entertaining. Thanks! Not too scary for smaller children and cool enough for teens :)

It was very fun to walk around. For more detailed tours and to go into certain areas of certain places you had to pay but you could get a very nice free experience.

The entire "village" is fun to explore but if you enter the shop for the tour and received the guide we had - well, you will be disappointed. This 20 year old bubble head was horrible. She was so proud to be a witch that instead of bringing acceptance to her path she made herself look like a nut. I... More

This was a great tour to take if you're interested in learning where the modern stereotypes of witches came from, as well as the history of the jack-o-lantern, Halloween, and other things that have become part of the American lexicon relating to witchcraft. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and energetic. I'd recommend this tour to those who are looking... More

Great tour of the witch museum. Main street has nice shops with a very witchy theme. Great place to visit for a day.

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.
