I visited Salem with friends the week before Halloween and it was very busy. There was a long queue for the trolley however we didn't have to wait too long, 5 minutes max. The lady who was our tour guide was really good, mixing historical stories with the more amusing ones. The tour itself includes the centre of town, the... More

We have enjoyed this tour in the past and the quality of the tour itself is very good. It really is a good way to see the sights in this interesting and historic city. We took the tour on a sunny day and wrapped up well against the nip in the air but inside the trolley we were fine. The... More

We arrived on Halloween at about 11am and although the Town was crowded we had a very enjoyable hour touring Salem and the harbour area. The guide was excellent and we learnt many interesting facts about this once famous port.

We wanted to do this tour on Halloween but the streets were shut down earlier than expected and missed out. Even though we walked all over Salem the day before we went back on Saturday in the pouring rain and the tours were still running. Had Joyce as our guide and Ron was our driver. They were both great!

This is a fun, comprehensive way to get the lay of the land. The trolley takes you to places you might not get to given their distance and the limited time a one day or weekend visitor might have. The guides are fun, too. They have an interesting and humorous repertoire!

I would recommend taking the 1 hour trolley tour of Salem and then walking around after to see more of anything that interested you. Our trolley guide was very good in giving the history of Salem. We chose to see the Dungeons Witch Museum which had a live re-enactment of the witch trials. You go into the dungeon to see... More

There is a lot to see and while it's easy to walk around Salem this tour brings you that little bit further out and you find out a lot of information while on this tour! Our tour... More

Visited Salem mid Oct 14. We only had a short time in Salem, as we were starting our New England tour. I had no idea Salem was such a nice place. The Trolley tour lasts for an hour, and gives you great overview of Salem. The guide was very informative, with a good sense of humour. You can hop on/off... More

While it was nice to put our feet up for a while - and enjoy seeing the scenery while not having to also do the driving - the tour was a bit of a waste. The guide spoke far too fast and the speaker system could not keep up with the rapid fire delivery - there was 2 of us... More
