What You Can Expect

Boston Ghost Tour by Candle-Lit Lantern

Boston Ghost Tour

Meet your guide by Faneuil Hall Market Place in Boston, and then set off on your stroll around the city with a candle-lit lantern in hand. As you walk around Boston’s North End neighborhood, listen to your guide recount stories of eerie happenings, and of the countless ghostly apparitions that have been witnessed by locals and visitors alike.

Boston is steeped in history so it’s no surprise that more than a few spooky stories have been gathered over the years. With so many haunted tales to choose from, your guide will vary the stories for each tour. Perhaps hear of the Boston serial killer James Allen who requested his memoir be bound to his body after death, or learn about Cotton Mather, the puritan Bostonian who was pivotal in bringing about the Salem Witch Trials in the 17th century.

Work your way around the dark and narrow streets of North End neighborhood while hearing more tales about witches, executions and ancient tunnels hidden beneath your feet. Long before the Big Dig (Boston’s underground project) came about, the tunnels were used as a means of getting around the city. Today, the lost souls of Boston’s bygone days lurk around the secret passageways.

After 1.5 hours of exploring the alleyways and little-used walkways around North End, work your way back to the start point where your evening ghost tour finishes.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2014

The tour was great! Had a wonderful guide who was knowledgeable about the subject matter and about Boston in general. Brought my sister who had never been to Boston and she got a history lesson as well as a ghost tour!

4 star rating: Recommended July 2014

The guide was great, I was hoping for more stories. We packed a lot of walking into the tour and I wished we could have explored the burial grounds more.
