We had a great experience with this trolley tour. My husband and I recommend riding the whole tour first, to get your bearings of the town. Then it's easy to know what you want to see. It's true most of the highlights are within walking distance and this is what we did. Got our money's just with the narration, didn't... More

This trolley tour was good but they make it feel short. The man was very interesting and new some good facts and it's a nice ride. Don't get me wrong they are very friendly but there wasn't really a spark. For me and my dad it was not worth the 15$ each . I would have been happy around 8$... More

We made the error of getting off at the first stop we wanted to see before taking the entire trip. We ended up re-doing the tour. It is worth it to do the tour and learn first so that the attractions make more sense. Our guide was very knowledgeable. I recommend this tour!

So, if you purchase and load at the visitor's center, you may find yourself back where you started within 20 minutes and wonder what the heck happened. Here is the deal....the 20 minute tour covers downtown Salem....and it goes back to back with the 40 minute tour which covers Pickering Warf, House of Seven Gables, etc. It doesn't explain that...

Three of us took this on and off Trolley tour and it was well worth it. First we rode all the way around the tour to see and hear about everything. Then we continued on to where we wanted to get off. Guide told us about the 1600's including witch trials. as well as interesting buildings and the lighthouse and... More

This is a phenomenal way to travel throughout the city as there are multiple stops at the main tourist attractions and you can get on and off at your leisure throughout the day. The narrated tour is 1 hour long, and is really nicely done to incorporate history throughout many periods of time in Salem. I suggest taking the full... More
