I signed up for a Segway Tour of Salem, MA and totally got my money's worth. Dan our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable about Salem's history and the witch trials. It was a two hour tour that took us all over Salem while we listened to the historic accounts of what really took place during those dark times. One of... More

I had the misfortune of enduring a negative experience with Witch City Segway Inc. My family and I made a reservation (well in advance) for a segway tour of Salem with their company. In a stroke of bad luck, our tour coincided with the brunt of hurricane Arthur that forced many events to be rescheduled in the Boston and Salem... More

My family had the training and then a one hour tour. Dan was very knowledgeable and entertaining... Learned quite a bit and enjoyed the ride. I would highly recommend this Segway tour with Dan.

Fun way to tour the area and to hear about the area history and Salem witch trials. Capt. Dan did a great job narrating the historical events and areas visited, Great tour-highly recommended.

Made online reservation with credit card for 2 for 6/19/2014 for $120. Drove 1/2 to find parking, find it and the business was closed! Called the main number, it connects to Segway Boston, they were apologetic, but no help. No offer of discount or coupon to please come again. Nothing but sorry. Emailed head manager but no response. Waste of... More

We had such a good time with Dave and Andrew on Saturday. Even the light rain didn't dampen our fun! We've ridden Segway's 5 times now, and will do it again every chance we get. Thank you to the Witch City Segway group for a truly fun and informative time!

We had a wonderful 2 hour tour with Captain Dan this past Saturday. We underwent a Segway training before heading out into Salem where we were regaled with stories about the Witch trials and other historical tidbits. Captain Dan took very good care of us, and guided us through the historical district of Salem, as well as two other outdoor... More

After Segwaying in Bermuda I never imagined another Segway experience would even come close to my first; how wrong I was! We arrived a few minutes before our 12 o'clock schedule and as the rest of the group was there we immediately watched the brief safety video. Dan (our guide) then took the time to give each of us an... More

Enjoyed the glide, Dan was a well informed guide. However, we were not given yellow safety vests as shown in pictures. Also, I did not correctly copy the site for our pictures. Thus far, I have had no success with requests to Witch City Segway for a link to the photos, and there is no obvious link on the site.

We booked a 2 hour Segway tour on line two days before we arrived and received confirmation by email. We turned up at their office for our 10.15am tour along with two other couples. Nobody in the office, nobody answering the phone. We waited another 20 minutes, still no sign of them. One of the other couples called their main... More
