We visited the Boston area for a long weekend in October. We had a short time left to see Salem and this was the perfect way to see the highlights of the sights. We did not have time to go into all of these places. We had never been before and found out that October is a very busy time... More

This was our second time touring with Witch City Segway. Today we were greeted by John who was fun and entertaining. Our guide was Steve who gave us a wealth of historical information while entertaining us on our hour long tour. This is a "must-do" when you are in Salem, you get a great overview of the historical sites while... More

My wife and I did this on a long weekend trip to Salem in October, and we absolutely loved it! Neither of us had ever been on a segway before, but after a brief tutorial (and hilarious instructional video), we were soon cruising along like a couple of pros! The staff at WCS were phenomenal! Super nice, extremely friendly, and... More

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

We did a tour on 8/24/14 with Ruby and we had a great time. She guided us through the streets of Salem and pointed out the historial sites. We had a very personal tour as there was only two in our tour. Would like to do again if we ever venture back to the area. Thank you Ruby!

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
