Located on the Salem Heritage Trail in the heart of historic downtown, Witch City Segway is Salem's original Segway tour company. Providing guided tours of our quaint New England town, WCS truly is a new way to see an old city. Guests are provided with free parking at our shop, where you'll receive a helmet and a Segway before being trained by our guides inside our 2000sq ft facility. We then Segway about our charming streets learning about our maritime history, Nathanial Hawthorne, and of course, the (in)famous Witch Trials of 1692! Friendly, personal, interactive tours are our specialty, and a great bonding experience for teens and parents! Witch City Segway: A Wicca'd Fun™ time!

Riding the segways was easy and fun. We did the two hour tour and still didn't want to get off. The disappointing part is that our photos have never appeared on their website for us to view and enjoy. Very sad for us since we were not allowed to take any photos on our own.

As Segway newbies, training was in an indoor enclosed space so super safe. Kids and wife all got the hang in a few mins then we were off following Mother Duck (our guide Max) through Salem. Stopped at the sights and had a good intro from Max who also took pictures throughout the trip ( but never sent them on... More

Multiple problems with this - booked a reservation on line for a Monday at 10AM - arrived a little early and it was closed. Called and the answering service said there would be someone there at 10AM. At 10:15 called again and the person said that he could get there in about 1-1/2 hours....this did not fit with our other... More

If you want to ride a Segway, by all means book this tour. You will ride a Segway. You may not experience anything else described on their website so be ready to dispute your credit card charge for false advertising when you don't get what they advertise bolded and underlined on their website: "Adventure Captains narrate the tour via an...

We have been on Segway tours before and this one stood apart from the other. There was a great mix of history and just riding. Enjoyed the pictures, too! Highly recommended will be back

We were debating at first whether to try it or not because we had never been on a Segway. The staff took the time to teach us how to safely operate the Segways. When they were done we were experts. My teenage girls & I had such a great time zipping around, seeing and hearing about historical Salem sights that... More
