This was a great way to see Salem up close. Our guide, Captain Steve, was very knowledgeable about the area. He made sure that all the members of the tour were comfortable with the Segways (thankfully both sets of guests had ridden before, so it was just a short refresher and we were on our way). The walkie-talkie radios were... More

This was so much fun. My husband had a better then I thought he would have. Would recommend this tour, we did the one hour tour but should have gone for the 2 hrs. It was just my husband, myself and Ruby. Ruby was awesome, didn't laugh at us at all figuring out our balance before letting us out of... More

my sons were looking forward to their first segway jaunt. Instead, we had a rich historical tour by Dan as we zipped around Salem by segway. Although we had already heard several historical presentations/reenactments, etc, Dan surpassed them all. And the boys finally got to ride on segways, with time for fun. It's important to know that the centralized booking... More

We had quite an adventure today. Led by Capt. Dan, History Guy and Salem Witch Trial-ophile, we took a Segway tour of the Witch City. After a safety video and a thorough Segway Surfing 101 lesson, we hit the streets. Dan guided us carefully but confidently through Salem, past the House of Seven Gables and the Witch Museum, along the... More

We didn't book, but beings Monday, Salem wasn't busy so we got an impromptu tour. Dan was a great guide, knew the history of Salem beyond the witch trials and was happy to share all of his knowledge. I would highly recommend this tour as a fun, informative way to see Salem!

We were only in Salem for a brief half day visit and this was an incredible and unique way to visit the town and learn about its 'witch trials' history. The segways were not difficult to pilot and my two teens were very excited to give it a try. Our tour guide even recommended an excellent gourmet pizza restaurant for... More

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
