We had a wonderful Bus Driver, Bob who was extremely knowledgeable and fun. We enjoyed learning the history of the Salem witch trials but be warned that the town itself is one trinket store after another. Ate lunch at a good restaurant called Gulli-Gulli.

Very long day. Many stops that the tour goes to does not include admission so be prepared for at least another $20 for admission and lunch at own cost. Was a good day. Had Bob as tour guide. Very friendly and knowledgeable and he actually cared about the passengers on his tour and made sure everyone enjoyed themselves.

A very good day although we would have liked longer in Salem itself - so much to see and do! Bob was a great driver and tour guide and "Tell them you're with Bob" became a catch phrase for us.
The drive across the causeway into Marblehead's finest real estate on the way home was fascinating and provided an insight into how the other half live although we would have preferred a shorter stop on the way to Salem and more time for exploration there as that was the main object of taking the tour.
Great tour and thanks to Bob!!

This was a very good tour . Bob the driver really knew his stuff... The stop at the Seven Gables is a must .

This tour was very enjoyable. The tour guide was good fun and gave us plenty of information. The tour lasted a lot longer than stated and we got a lot for the money spent. Salem itself was a little disappointing, very commercialised, and failed to get across the real horror of what happened there.

The driver was entertaining and kept us amused with all his tales and observations. Salem was fascinating though I felt a bit overwhelmed with the witch story by the end of the morning. A lunch venue was suggested which I am sorry I took up as it was ordinary to say the least. But you can choose your own place to eat. The House of Seven Gables is really worthwhile visiting. The trip back through Marblehead was beautiful and should not be missed. Heavenly views! Be prepared to get back into Boston quite late!

The bus driver Bob was great and he took us along the coast with some beauitiful scenes. Salem itself was a waste of time. The tours we did at Salem were weak. Overall I rated it a 8 because of Bob.
