We took the Trolley and got way more than we bargained for. The tour guide was great and showed she really knew her stuff. You will learn about the maritime history, american firsts and of course the witch trails that took place in Salem. You will learn about how authors were inspired to write the Scarlet Letter and the House... More

We are locals, but we decided to have a day in Salem playing tourist and since it had been many years since we had ridden the trolley we wanted to check it out. It's as good as we remember. The tour guide was knowledgeable and entertaining and the trolley is a perfect way to get around to most of the... More

We were in Salem today and our group used the Salem Trolley. What a great way to see the city and learn about its diversified history. It only takes about an hour to go all the way around and you can get off anywhere you like. I highly recommend them to anyone that is visiting Salem.

We got on one of the earliest trolleys to see the sights and select where we wanted to go. Later we used the trolley as a shuttle which saved a lot of walking. Though out our day we had various narrators, some we funny and informative but one seemed to be pushing her political agenda. I am on vacation and... More

Our trolley guide was so pleasant and really knew her history. She kept us all interested and considering how hot it was that day it was great to have someone mesmerize me enough to forget the heat.

This was worth doing. I would recommend that you do it early in the day as you can hop on and off throughout the day if you want. It gives you more bang for your buck. We stayed on for a total round tour when we first arrived in Salem and it gave us a chance to see everything and... More

My husband and I enjoyed the tour which lasts about an hour. We stayed on for the entire trip though, as we were told trolleys run 30 minutes after each other and did not want to get stuck waiting at various stops. Our driver and narrator were nice. We learned a lot about the history of Salem and learned some... More

It was more expensive then I expected but you really can't beat the convenience of it. It takes you to all the places you want to go and there are usually a bunch running fairly often. They have open windows so you can get some awesome pictures although the seats are wood benches that aren't very comfortable. I would have... More

I liked the tour, but we had to wait an hour because their bus was full. We did not get off because every stop had people waiting a long time for one and they were all full. It was very interesting and always a great way to find where everything is, unfortunately they should have had more trolleys operating.
