Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Salem Witch City Day Trip From Boston. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
trip not quite as entertaining as previous reviews led one to think. Could of been time of year or tour guide.
Viator substituted the coach for a trolley which made for a very uncomfortable trip. Much too far for a trolley trip. The driver did her best to make it a good trip but itwas not her usual route and she had to ask for directions several times. All in all not a very pleasant trip and not what was advertised.
This tour was very dissappointing we were hoping that it may have been a tour with a bit of history about the area but we were driven to Salem and told that we were there till 4.30 and left to find our own way around
The trip to Salem was fun. The tour guide got a little lost on our trip and wasn't familiar with the area, but she did her best to make sure we were having fun.
Whilst I very much enjoyed the tour, the price only included the bus ride so be prepared to pay for entry into all the exhibits and museums
I really enjoyed this tour. Bob the bus driver was extremely knowledgeable and gave us extra information and took us to extra places to extend the tour which made our arrival time a little late! We were collected and returned to our Hotel at Back Bay, so it is worth booking this in when you telephone to confirm your Booking. The Tour Operators are very good.
Bobbie was great just like everyone said. He really knows Boston and Salem and shares a lot of interesting information with you. He took us to the dungeons where they imprisoned the "witches"--very enlightening. Stopping at Marblehead was an added plus! At the end of the tour, he even drove us right up to our hotel even though it was not one of the ones that had a pick up location. My only advice is not to take Bobbie's word on where to eat. (find another place to eat in Salem) and ask your concierge for suggestions where to eat in Boston. Carol
Great experience, and our tour guide, Bob, was terrific doing everything he could to make the tour special for all of us. Coastline views were extraordinary, and all of his recommendations (restaurant for lunch, museums, etc.) were on target.
The driver was really nice, helpfull and a great story teller. Thanks to him, we all spent a great day.
But Salem was very disappointing. Nothing to see, only a place for turists.
Fortunately, Marblehead city was a great surprise.
One more thing : the entrance for The Seven Gables House was not included !!
The tour driver Bob was outstanding. He provided lots of historical information, had a great sense of humor and showed us a lot more than the tour brochure promised. Bob made an interesting trip to Salem an experience.
The driver/tour guide Bob was awesome!!! He gave us just the right amount of time to see the sights. The history he gave us was spot on.
Bob our tour leader was lovely. Not only did he know the whole story behind the witch trials, but he also made a few stops along the way to Salem at different places and gave us all alot of information about the history of Boston.
