We only managed to grab a short amount of time in Salem with the ferry times but the Segway tour is a great way to cram in as much as you can. Kudos to Brad for being such a good sport and tour guide, price is reasonable and they were able to accommodate us despite not having a booking and... More

Excellent historical narrative, and the ability to get up close and personal w/ landmarks all while having fun made this a winner for us. Our favorite tour (we did the trolley too). The trolley goes a bit farther, but this was our favorite. Loved being able to play in the Commons too!

This was the first time for my 14 yr old and myself on a Segway. It was a brutally hot day in Salem (high 90's in the shade). Jeff, the owner had bottled water and sunscreen all ready to go when we walked through the door which was a really nice touch. After making sure we felt comfortable and knew... More

As a Salem resident, I have seen some of the tourist type activities that our city has to offer, but wanted to try something different when we had some friends come for a visit. The 6 of us range in age from 30 to 55. We went off to the Witch City Segway office about a half an hour before... More

Jeff and his staff made our company outing (12 of us) a great experience for all. They were so accommodating and did a terrific job for our visit. Everyone had a blast and it was a great way to learn a little history along the way. This is a "must-do" if you are in the Salem, MA area!
