Witchwood Tours

I have a passion for knowledge and sharing what I've learned with others. To me, the world is a magical place, and it's up to everyday people to preserve what is truly sacred and change what inhibits growth. Sometimes, a walk in the woods with a witch is what you need to gain a fresh perspective on life.

This store is a must if visiting Salem! They did recently change their location to Essex street, the new store is absolutely gorgeous! They sell everything from incense, candles, herbs, books, tarot cards, and various ritual tools. Everyone who works there is a magical practitioner and has vast knowledge on the occult. I had hands down the best reading, I’ve ever had from Joao, while I was there. Definitely a store to check out if journeying you’re Salem!

A Must for anyone who wants the ultimate souvenir from Salem! My husband and I made an appointment and we were greeted by a team of fun folks ready to transform us into something magical. Their selection of costumes and hats is awesome, so you can be a Glam witch, or funny or mystical. for the guys they can do traditional wizards to Game of Thrones inspired fur and swords. Ladies arrive with your makeup done for photos, and they do allow you to bring your own hat or a small prop. The sets and their accessories such as wands, swords, brooms make the photos exciting. If you come with a fun attitude the Photographer will suggest the poses and mood. Everyone was very nice and the selection of digital shots was more than expected. It was worth the price !

I took my friend as a surprise, she had had a bad day...it cheered her up and we had the best time! The two male staff (it was at night, can't recall their names) were absolutely awesome! The vampire room was the best room I have been to yet, and I've been to a few places.
