We purchased our tickets for the trolley outside the Salem Visitors center and started there. If you stay on the trolley, it provides an hour tour around the town. You can get on and off at various stops throughout the day as well. The tour guide was informative and kept our attention. Salem is well known for their witch trials... More

We took the trolley tour on a whim. We enjoyed it. We got to see the city, its sights, learn about its history while letting someone else do the driving. It gives you a good orientation of the city. It's nice to get on & get off when you want.

We did this tour in October right before Halloween. Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable about Salem! We heard many great tales about the area as we traveled through Salem! I recommend this tour for all ages!

Every city that I visit that has a trolley tour, I try to start my visit with it by first staying on the trolley for the whole tour first without getting off. Simply stated, which goes for the Salem Trolley Tours, it is the best way to find out the highlights of what there is in the city with seeing... More

We did this on a Thursday in October, so I presume that it was rather busier than at other times of years. We bought our tickets from the Trolley Depot Store, and then wandered down to the armoury building to catch the trolley. One was just taking on passengers when we got there, but only 2 people were able to... More

We arrived 15 minutes early to the Salem Trolly ride as we were instructed. Earlier that day we had gone by just to see where it was etc... The lady was sitting in the office and did not get up , but stuck her head out. We said we were there early as she instructed us. Then she told us... More

We were under the impression this was more of a formal tour (you get on with one tour group, do an hour long tour, and come back), but during the day the trolleys serve to both give people a look at Salem, and drop them off and pick them around town. This wasn't made clear, so when the trolley pulled... More

A very fun trolley tour around Salem. Our guide was funny and informative and you saw parts of Salem that you wouldn't normally see on the tourist trail. Definitely worth the money. Easy to hop on and hop off.

A great way to see the city. This was our first view of Salem (in the day) and it was a great way to get an idea of what we wanted to see/do next. Our tour guide was great although it took me a good 10 minutes to get used to his very fast paced speaking! We had the very... More
