House Of The Seven Gables Reviews & Ratings
The tour guide we had was amazing. I can't remember his name, but he was fantastic. We absolutely loved the atmosphere. The garden and houses are gorgeous. Their gift shop is so quaint and adorable. All in all, awesome. Wonderful historical tour. My future husband and I really hope to have our wedding there someday.
I had my dream come true vow renewal here and can’t recommend it enough! Yes the place is clearly beyond gorgeous—inside and out—but the event staff helped make things perfect. Deb was FANTASTIC and so laid back w/helping me secure my special day. She even pulled out “extras” when we did photography inside the house which helped make beautiful pictures even better. Very grateful for everything!
My sister and I have taken many tours over the years and today's tour is one of the best. Elliott was our guide. He was fantastic! He was knowledgeable about the house, its history, the story, everything. He encouraged questions and was so interesting. Thanks for a great tour! 😀 And--we loved the gift shop.
My mother and I came on a trip with a very large group to Salem today; part of the trip was a tour of The House of the Seven Gables. I believe our tour guide was named Adam; he was amazing! Extremely knowledgeable and able to answer even the most random questions smoothly, was very funny, and worked well under pressure (there was some timing issues with a few groups, and it resulted in all the tour groups bumping into each other in the rooms). Overall, however, a great experience! :) I would recommend everyone come take the tour, regardless of if you have read the book or not — it’s a great piece of history with passionate guides to really help you experience the time. Thanks so much!
Friendly and helpful staff to greet you as we entered ticket area and gift shop. Connie was a knowledgeable and very pleasant tour guide who gave us great details and answered our questions. Several buildings to explore on the property. Great view of the bay. Lots of parking. Restrooms clean as well as the entire property. Babs
