Tour Guide Bob was the best! I wouldn't recommend visiting the Salem witch museum, it's a waste of money and the young female at the front wasn't welcoming. Watch the free video at the NPS which is where Bob drops off everyone.
Fun day trip from Boston. Our driver Bob was fun and friendly. He included many stops that weren't on the tour and gave us a "locals" viewpoint! My only complaint would be that we didn't actually get to see the Salem Witch Museum as the tickets had sold out before we got there. Still worthwhile.
Bob our tour guide was great. Very knowledgeable and great stories. Marblehead was nice but didn't stop at Abbott Hall. Salem itself is a bit cheesy. Might be more fun to go closer to Halloween. The museums are overpriced, should have just walked around the town instead of wasting time at the Salem Witch Museum.
Fantastic experience would recommend as a must see, great atmosphere
Bob our guide was very amusing, knowledgeable and accommodating, unfortunately he was let down by a very over commercialised Salem. Most attractions were extra and this was not stated in the trip information.
Our bus trip was great we had Bob as a guide and he was very informative and interesting. He demonstrated a great knowledge of Boston, Mablehead and Salem. We did get back quite late and this was a bit of a problem for some on the bus due to having other activities booked. Need to advertise this trip as getting back around 6-7 pm not 4.30pm. this did not worry us and we enjoyed Bob's tales.
We enjoyed the tour thoroughly. Bob, our tour guide was fantastic, Boston couldn't ask for a better ambassador!

Didn't really spend enough time at Marblehead. Stopped at a reenactment and replica of a witches dungeon which was a complete waste of money. The tour was rerouted to a replica ship, so our time at the house of seven gables was cut short and we felt that we didn't have time for the tour. All in all, very disappointed.
It was fun
My children wanted to go since studied Salem Witch trials in school.
Fun, informative, and factual. A very nice gentleman in Bob who was flexible with the schedule and allowed plenty of free time to visit and tour the areas.
I had read the reviews about the great tour guide Bob beforehand and if anything it didn't do him justice. He was fantastic, time was never an issue and we were brought on a historical, sightseeing journey full of interesting facts about Boston, Marblehead and an insight into Salem Witch trials. Salem Dungeon put on a short play of the trial which was mesmerising. The Witch Museum also had great visual displays. This was the Highlight of my 8 day vacation in Boston by far.
Loved it and loved the guide. Brilliant man. Lived there his whole life so got a real tour. Was wonderful and definately would push this on others to do. A definate must while your in boston.
Our tour guide was really good. We learnt a lot. In fact the trip made us realise how little we did know about the Salem witch trials to begin with. Salem was a lovely area with lots of history. A little bit tacky but that's something I guess you expect. It's like it's always Halloween there.
