Excellent day trip with Bob at the helm - funny, knowledgeable and kind. Got very worried when people did not return to the bus on time and even took every passenger back to their individual hotels in Boston if they wanted to. Bus left on time and well organised departure.
We were on the last trip of the season 24/10 and Bob changed the itinerary so that we could get to Salem before the huge crowds which he anticipated and visit museums etc. in a more relaxed manner.
Well worth the money especially, as I guess, it would have mad on the train / ferry due to the number of visitors in Salem that day.
Cheers Bob - may see you again one day.
This tour was amazing! The tour guide, Bob, was so knowledgeable with the history of Salem and the surrounding communities on the way to/from Salem. Given how busy it was in the city with the October festivities, Bob made sure we had plenty of time to tour the city and see the museums. Bob made the journey very enjoyable, and I highly recommend him as a tour guide!
I was expecting Salem to be a bit...more. Nevertheless, it was a bit of a learning experience and Bob was an amazing driver/tour guide! He was funny and responsible for his people, and knew so much about the area! There was a little mix up dropping me off at my hotel he thought he heard The Renaissance when I said Residence Inn but he took me directly to my hotel's front doors at the end of the day. You're the best Bob!
This was a very comfortable bus ride with beautiful views of the countryside and a great guide
Our tour guide/driver Bob was the best! He was very informative. We highly recommend this tour.
The guide Jerry was great, very informative. Leaving the driving to him was the best idea ever! I traveled alone and it was fine so don't shy away if you are a solo! I could have used more time in Salem since it was so crowded something to consider for future October tours.
Salem was great! So many tours to do and plenty of time to explore. My favourite was the actual drive to Salem, we got a great look at the amazing new england coast, we stopped at gorgeous Marblehead to look at the ocean and the amazing houses. Thank you so much!
Our driver Bob did a great job and helped us pick the best places to see and eat when on our own.
Driver was very good and had very good knowledge of Boston and its history
The driver was excellent so informative and interesting, he made the trip.The journey to Salem was the best bit for me. Salem itself was nice and busy due to Halloween coming up soon. it would be best to stay the night to do a evening ghost tour to get the whole atmosphere.
Thankfully, we got Bob as our tour guide. He lived up to his billing with his sense of humor, thoughtfulness and his genuine New England accent. He has a wealth of local knowledge and a lot of local stories and it felt like we were off the beaten track during the tour. The day could not have been better with sensational whether and an enchanted town full of scary stories and lots of friendly people. Thanks again Bob!
This was excellent. Bob the driver was highly professional, knowledgeable, informative and great fun. He certainly made the tour a real highlight of our stay in Boston.
He was very considerate and generious about the drop-off procedure at the end of day. And he suggested we got to Mother Anna's for dinner the next night - we did, and it was wonderful.
This is an amazing tour! Our guide Bob was fantastic and highly knowledgeable on all things Boston related. Salem is a beautiful place and Bob made sure we made the most of our short time there.
Our tour guide went out of his way to show us all the sights of Salem as well as some beautiful New England coastal scenery. We had a great time!
This tour was so much more than I expected. Our bus driver/guide Bob made this a fantastic tour. He gave us info on the areas we went through--not just on Salem.
We had the best tour guide - his name is Bob. He made stops and always made sure we had sufficient time at the stops. We never felt rushed. A very knowledgeable man. An excellent all day tour.
Loved it, we climbed castle rock and drove through Marble Head, salem was fantastic so much to,do and we were given enough time to enjoy!
House of Seven Gables was breathtaking learned so much ....Bob is so personable and fun to be with
I put in a review on this earlier but it did not go through?? Anyway I'll sum it up. The Salem tour was wayyyy too fun!! I loved it. It lasted much longer than anticipated. Well worth the money. You got time on your own to explore. But best of all was . . . like everyone else indicated . . . the tour bus driver BOB!!! THUMBS WAYYY UP!!! He was welcoming, making everyone feel as if he or she was his close friend but without singling any one person out the dreaded embarrassment factor!!, very polite, accommodating, and extremely funny. I know I am reiterating the general sentiments of previous reviewers, but it's all true. If only all people could treat people this way the world will be a better place. Well done!!
Congratulations! Bob is the best Guide I've never had. Thanks to Bob
We had a great tour. We had an awesome tour guide I believe his name was Bob? The only downfall to the day was it rained the entire day but we were able to dodge the raindrops. We learned a lot about the Salem history. Much more than we learned in school which made this even more awesome. What we learned in school wasn't the history of the town and the witch trials. Great tour and I would recommend it to anyone. Our tour guide was very informative and gave us extras in stops and info. Great tour. Thanks for putting this all together for us.
Amazing! Well worth the price. Bob the tour guide was excellent. He gave us the full package plus much more and was very passionate about his job. Brilliant day!
All-day tour with more than 2/3 of it spent in the small village of Salem.
Excellent trip with great tour- guide, Bob, who is a very good story teller. Bob even went out of his way to arrange for lunch for my daughter who did not have time to eat. Don't miss out on this trip if you have time since this is more than a tour to see witches in Salem
This was an excellent trip as Bob was our driver. He gave us so much info on Boston as this is where he grew up so it came natural to him to talk about the changes over the years. Bob also had great knowledge in relation to Salem and the witch trials. Bob went beyond his tour duty by giving everyone time to enjoy the attractions in Salem as he stated that he was in no rush. Bob also made sure that everyone got back to their hotel safely by dropping us all off at each hotel or as near as possible. I would advise anyone to go on a trip that Bob is driving on as you will get a warm welcome, great info and some good laughs along the way.
