What You Can Expect

Boston Ghosts and Gravestones Tour

Boston Ghosts and Gravestones Tour

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.

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.

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.

Great tour! So funny!! I loved the tour guide we had and hearing the stories of the morbid history of Boston. I read reviews about other people complaining that it wasn't scary- but it isn't supposed to be. If you want to be scared, go to a scary movie or haunted house. This was very educational, but done in a very entertaining way. It was probably my favorite thing about my weekend trip in Boston, but I happen to love the macabre.
