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.
Great experience and very knowledgable driver.
Excellent booking service.
Bob the driver was GREAT! We loved that he took us the scenic shoreline route. Salem was okay but we loved the stop in Marblehead and that Bob let us get out and take pictures at the shore! That was the best part of the trip!
The experience was great. The pick up was on time. The driver was excellent, helpful, knowledgeable, friendly and eager to show us all he could. The bus was clean but we feel it needs some repair, the tires look very old, the toilet had a strong odor, and we feel the bus needs repair.
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.
