This was such a great tour! Our group was much smaller than a lot of the other walking tours we saw out and about, so we were able to ask lots of questions and have time up close at the places we were... more »
This tour is absolutely worth your time and money. Susan goes above and beyond with this tour. She is so full of Salem history, knowledge, and fun little tidbits. She’ll give you a great overview of the town and the history that is here. She’s very respectful and this tour is definitely kid friendly. We came in March and it was still chilly. She provided us with hand warmers! Love this tour and would absolutely recommend her to everyone.
We came to Salem for our first time this past April. What an amazing experience we had with Hocus Pocus tours! We had our own private tour with Susan, and you could tell how passionate she was and what a great story teller she is! She takes you to places you would of had no idea about if you’d walk Salem on your own, we so enjoyed her stories and her knowledge on all the history. She showed us site after site and was so fun to listen too! Highly recommend this tour! I know we will be back one day for another one! Thank you again from OKC, Susan!
