What people are saying about The Witch House at Salem

Our experience was amazing and worth every penny. The tour offers plenty of stops to make it worth your money, but we also had enough time at each stop for ample information and fine for questions. Our guide Celine was impeccable, very passionate; she made the information very fluid and appropriately humorous. For other travelers I simply recommend check the weather to see if you should wear layers and wear tennis shoes!

We learned so much history surrounding the Salem Witch Trial, people who were involved (the accused and the accusers), and some of their famous descendants. The tour guide was excellent, very knowledgeable, and we would highly recommend this tour.

Very informative and personable tour guide. I would recommend to anyone who is interested in the history of the Salem Witch Trials.
