“Fantastic Tour”
Reviewed May 6, 2013

The Trolley tour was great~our guide was wonderful, he had a sense of humor and really gave us lots of info on the history of Salem. The cost of the tour was very reasonable, and you can get off and on at all of the stops. There was so much to see and do, I wish that we had started earlier in the day!

“Best way to see Salem by automobile”
Reviewed May 1, 2013

I highly recommend this tour. You get a great overview of Salem and the behind the scenes information. You are also able to get off and on at any of the stops. However, I recommend starting as early as you can. We lost track of time and could not use the trolly to make it back from The House of the Seven Gables:).

“The Trolley Tour was GREAT!”
Reviewed April 23, 2013

I would highly recommend this tour. We had a great guide, who l believe was a retired teacher. Very knowledgeable. This tour will provide and executive summary about Salem. Tour allows you to get on and off at attractions for one fee. Takes one hour to complete entire tour start to finish.

“Do this first, well worth the cost”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

We did this when they opened for the morning our first day. The trolley takes two loops and you get tons of history and fun facts on the trolley. Most of all it gives you the lay out of the town and the distance between the different sites, so you know how far apart things are, if they are walkable. Then you can hop on and off later to go to some of the places that are further away. Saves a lot of time so you can see more. Most places attractions are only open from 10 am to 5 pm, so keep an eye on the last trolley pick up at the stop so you can get back.
