I picked the 9:00 PM tour because I thought it would be better in the dark but the 7:00 PM time would have worked just as well. One warning: this tour requires walking, sometimes up hill. My wife struggled a bit with the walking part. Fiona, our tour guide, was most entertaining. Regaling us with ghost stories. We visited two graveyards and the Boston Commons where she told us the truly amazing life stories of some of the people buried there. At the Commons we were joined by the other tour group of the night and lead to Granary Burial Grounds where we were told to go towards the light. Once we were all in the tour guides closed the gates a left. Shortly, we were met by the ghost of one of the inhabitants of the cemetery. She introduced us to the graves of some of her fellow inhabitants and told stories of their lives and their more recent appearances. Our tour guides returned to safely escort us back to our trolleys. On our way back to the Long Wharf, Fiona told the most haunting story of all: the story of the Boston Strangler.
Great evening. All personnel were pleasant, made it a lot of fun as well as informative.

Was a fun couple of hours. Even when something didn't go to plan he made it fun. Some really interesting facts made it some times hysterical.
Our female guide was hysterical and sarcastic and full of fun. Our group of 10 learned a great deal of Boston history in a truly entertaining setting. Loved it! Great way to celebrate my birthday.
Great event, the host character, Lily was engaging funny and entertaining. Highly reccomend this venue.
Our guide on this one was very much into his part. a lot of fun even with all the rain we got out at the first cemetery but were too soaked for the second one. What we saw was fun and scary in the dark with the tombstones and look of old graves. Stories he told really made the mood for the cemetery.

It was turning dark as we began and the air was chilly. Our guides, dressed in period costumes, got everyone in the mood, not to mention scaring the poo out some of us . We saw two cemeteries with tombstones dating from the 1700's - including Paul Revere's. Excellent and fun narrative. No one should miss this!
This was a blast! It was scary but in a fun way. Our tour guide had me in stitches. He was funny and dramatic and really knew the history of the cemeteries and the dark side of Boston.
What fun - what amazing information - what amazing 'actors'. Our guides were something else! Scared my granddaughter and she loved it! The facts brought to our attention were very interesting. We went at 7pm which as far as I'm concerned, was the ideal time. You could still see everything, and it was just getting dark. I will recommend this to anyone travelling to Boxton

very informative and enjoyable experience.. good way to learn interesting facts about historic Boston...Anthrax was very entertaining......recommend
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.
Excellent tour both in humor and historical info. Fiona was our tour guide and she was absolutely fantastic !
This was an awsome tour all informing and just plain great fun and educational all at the same time This is one that everyone should go on the guides were fun and inlightening costumes were just great
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.
