Boston Ghosts and Gravestones Tour

Boston Ghosts and Gravestones Tour

Step aboard the trolley of the doomed and join your host, a 17th-century grave digger, cursed with a sentence of eternal damnation. This wretched creature is doomed to travel the streets of Boston and relay the stories of the unfortunate souls he encountered and the macabre events he had been witness to during his purgatory.

Hear about Boston's most sinister characters - from the Angel of Death to the king of all killers - the Boston Strangler. Learn about all the haunts that call the "Hub" their home. But that's not all! Step inside two of the oldest burying grounds in Boston for a walking tour you will never forget. Learn the significance of much of the imagery found in these 17th century burial grounds and the famous and not so famous (but even more interesting) occupants therein.

Visit Copp's Hill Burying Ground in the North End, nestled atop the tallest point in one of Boston's oldest historic districts. Here you will visit the final resting place of Cotton Mather, a man famous for his "intimate" involvement with the Salem Witch Trials. Then to the Granary Burying Ground where you will visit the final resting places of many of the famous heroes of the American Revolution including John Hancock, Paul Revere and Samuel Adams.

Remember that half of the tour is walking, so comfortable shoes are recommended (so you don't become "dead" on your feet)!

This was a very fun and informative tour. The tour guides made it even more fun by staying in ghoulish character! In this tour you learned many things about Boston that may not have been obvious. The trolleys were well maintained and overall this was a very interesting tour and easy to do with only a bit of walking.

The most fun tour ever. Before even stepping aboard the spooky bus you are welcomed in true spooky style. The guides are friendly and helpful. As I was running late they even called me to see where I was...... Which was in traffic not far away..... And held the bus while I ran on late. The bus was decorated authentically as was the driver. The guide was in character and bubbly with enthusiasm. He was very knowledgable and made the tour very humorous.
A great way to spend a Friday night in a new city and I'd say this would be a must-do in Boston if fun and light entertainment is what you like.
Loved it and would thoroughly recommend it .......

We were worried when a large group of middle school kids joined the tour, but Victor soon had them under control with humor and a knowledge of that age group. It was fascinating tour of two of Boston's oldest graveyards. Without Victor, the tour had the potential of being a disaster instead it was a total success. I would highly recommend this tour.
