Discover some of Boston’s deepest, darkest secrets on a “frightseeing” tour aboard the Trolley of the Doomed, which roams around the haunted streets and burial grounds of Boston.
  • Ghosts and Gravestones Tour
  • Step aboard the trolley of the doomed and join your host, a 17th-century grave digger
  • Step inside two of the oldest burying grounds in Boston
  • Visit Copp's Hill Burying Ground, the final resting place of Cotton Mather, a man famous for his "intimate" involvement with the Salem Witch Trials
Boston’s original “frightseeing” tour is an evening of fear and fun. Climb aboard the Trolley of the Doomed for an experience unlike any other. Uncover Boston’s darkest secrets and hear the stories of those lost souls who many locals believe still wander the streets and alleys of this historic town.

Learn about some of the city’s most sinister characters, from Albert DeSalvo, better known as the Boston Strangler, to Jane Toppan, aka Jolly Jane, one of the most prolific serial killers in American history.

Walk through two of the oldest burial grounds in Boston, including Old Granary, the final resting place for many notable Revolutionary War-era patriots like Samuel Adams, John Hancock and Robert Treat Paine, plus Paul Revere and the five victims of the Boston Massacre. Also, visit the site of the biggest grave-robbing scandal in New England’s history.

Come with an open mind and see if any ghosts appear. It’s a ride on the dark side.

This was a fun time! Entertaining tour guides, and interesting historical info.

Apart from the fantastic costumes of the guides and the odd picture on the trolley bus, there was no reference to Ghosts, the Graveyards were interesting to a point but I expected a bit more 'Ghost' as well as Graveyards, it was a few days before Halloween after all! The local streets were spookier.

I found this tour very boring! It just wasnt to my taste! The graveyards were difficult to negotiate in the dark. Thank goodness for torches on mobile phones as they were in constant use. Found the guide hard to understand and trying too hard to be funny.
The tour lasts 2 hours and I couldnt wait to leave after an hour and a half.
Sorry but tour wasnt to my taste........

What a fun way to spent an evening! Lily, our guide was absolutely historical and historical. The feeling of being in the cemeteries at night, going through the locked gates was so different from our walk during the day. Learned about significant gravestones, patriots buried there and how many more bodies were there with no marker.

I've been to other graveyard tours and they seem to be more fun. This one, we walked into two graveyards, so dark you couldn't see anything!

The narrator/guide was tooooooooooo loud. I had to cover my ears on most of the drive...and after had an immense headache. The climb to the graveyard was hard - I am 65 and bad knees...I was always the last one - one time she said to me - You are always last! - Gee, sorry. There should be notice that there is a lot of walking and hill climbing.
The next day - in the light - we saw the 2 graveyards were very close to each other...we wondered why we had to drive so much around the city.

This tour was really good. Stella was a great guide and even had to deal with some very unruly older couples! Handled it like a boss. Carried on.

This was the adventure we were all looking forward to the most and so glad we saved for last. This was so fun and our guide Betty was amazing. We learned so much about the haunted history of Boston and best of all, we laughed like crazy. My favorite part was screaming at people on the streets. OMG so much fun. I highly recommend you go on this tour, you won't be disappointed.
