first, we traveled to Woodman’s Restaurant to have lunch there, there was a variety of food to taste but we only ordered what that restaurant was well-known for, the fried clams, they were delicious and well cooked. Then, Hammond Castle, Salem Witch Museum where we had the best time. I would like to admire the punctually and friendly treatment to the passengers on board. Our tour guide was such a nice person who had been a great influence in delivering a quality service for the all the passengers. We took really great photos, by the time of early night, we have been dropped-off where we began the journey. Cheers to the specialized management of the bus tour!
I have already heard so much about the Salem Museum for its great exhibits for witchcraft and stuff like that. Therefore, it planned to take my kids out on the bus journey so we could all have fun for Halloween by touring those Halloween themed sites. It was lovely experiencing the tour probably because we had the best destinations on the schedule, and the bus team was so professional at delivering us the right thing we all travelers wanted to. It’s another remarkable tour experience. Thank you, guys!
when it comes to touring it is really impossible to visit all places and in this hustle, one can miss the main and amazing places. One way to solve this problem is to consult some touring agency and that is what I did and by doing so I was able to visit my favorite places like Woodman’s Restaurant, Hammond Castle, Salem Town. Moreover, the busses are good the staff is really cooperative and all the other services provided by the agency are perfect.
I never fond of taking the journey with a group amount of people on a bus. However, the first thing I discover by joining the tour was it had like so much of diversity, there were Chinese, Australian, Korean, American, and others altogether for the bus trip. Glad, we toured the best places and that makes all the difference. The professional team of tour operators had been the number one reason for this great bus tour. We all had a wonderful time, especially the extra time we got at the Museum helped us have even more enjoyable time to the fullest extent.
The tour buses on which we took the tour were the best in such a way that they were comfortable with the cooperative staff. I liked the spots which they showed me and the food we get to eat was too, which were on my wish list. The agency offered me the whole-deal in a reasonable and affordable price. A quality time was spent by me and my family on this tour and mostly I liked the haunted tour of Hammond Castle. Thank You!
It was too good to have a nice appetizing lunch before we visited any place on the bus journey. All the passengers seemed quite excited about the tour, especially for the Salem Museum which I think was the best place to visit. It was already late when we dismissed the bus tour, thus we decided to spend another night in Boston and traveled back to our hometown the day after that. The tour was great for families and friends because the destinations were perfect to amaze or excite anybody. I’m nothing but quite thankful for the great journey we have recently experienced. I would definitely take another bus tour on my next vacations. Thumbs up!
To join up the team of the tour, we had to first reach the Boston city. We started from Vegas the night before the morning when we have to board on the journey. I would say it wasn’t just exciting tour since we get to visit specific and very few locations, also I think our schedule had a huge time to add up more of those worthy locations. Hammond Castle and Salem Museum were the great, there were quite a lot exhibits at to explore and browse there. I could have been much more, but it’s OK the way the way the tour it is because many people would like travel lazy and spend so much time at a single place.
This was our first trip to Hammond Castle Museum and Witch Town Haunted. it did not disappoint -There are a lot of options for Halloween, but it\'s hard to imagine others measuring up to the experience we had.
Outstanding tour of the world\'s most famous town. Our guide was Robert - a Boston lifer, with a very friendly
I effectively got ready for this tour quite a while back, I asked my companion which site is great, they prescribed me utilizing this site to book visit, which is solid. I am satisfied with my movement experience.
