Guide was nice and stories were interesting but organization was lacking. We started 17 minutes late and then had to stop and add another large party to our already big group. Stopped after 30 minutes for a bar break- my guess is bar and fortune reader both give kickbacks- and lost more time even though rain was coming in. We bailed on tour when heavy rain began because it was chilly. It was 9:30 and we only got 40 minutes of actual tour.

Had a pretty good time with the tour, learned some history I had no idea about. Our tour guide was great! Cars driving by was annoying. I wish these tours could actually take you on or in the location (not for a investigation, but to look around Atleast) but I understand why not. Overall I give it 4 out of 5. Our group size was 27 people, so maybe a little less it would of been better.

Wasn't as described and Tour guide wasn't the best

The tour was supposed to be 1.5 hours with no breaks. There was a long break in the middle and our was over 2 hours. This was mostly because the tour guide (Jodi) kept talking alternate route because she couldn't or didn't stop where she wanted. The tour was ruined by her constantly telling us to not spread out, don't touch buildings, crowd in...etc. Once or twice would have been sufficient and it's covid! We didn't want to bunch. If the company is so worried about that, perhaps putting 27 people in a group isn't a good idea. I wouldn't recommend this tour. There are so many.... Pick another.

Hi there, I do apologize that you did not enjoy your experience with us. We do not promise breaks, but we do offer them to groups who want them. I apologize if that wasn't what you were looking for. I'd love to be able to fix this for you, please reach out to us at manager@witchesbrewtours.com. Thanks so much for the feedback.
