We met at pioneer village per the instructions we received from the booking on Cool Destinations.com. The tour guide was on the phone trying to direct the other tourists to the same location because apparently they didn’t all get the same message we did. We tried to wait for them and killed some time in pioneer village but they didn’t come so we continued without them. One of our first stops was the Dennison house and it was SO cool. There were props and opportunities for photos. From there it definitely was a lot of walking through the city to a few of points of interest. She went over some of the history of the city and the witch trials. Overall it was a good tour but because of the waiting at the beginning for the misdirected travelers we were rushed thru or past some of the better things. This was our first visit to Salem and the tour guide was very knowledgeable as she is a teacher.
The tour has its pros and cons.Pros: lots of walking, seeing a different side of Salem, some scenes from the movie.Cons: doesn’t focus on the movie just shows few landmarks, not a lot of continual info on the tour, meeting location is far from the center, and lots of walking. Salem is a magical place and the guide was pleasant but I wouldn’t advise this tour for the true Hocus Pocus enthusiast.
