Boston Ghosts and Gravestones Tour

Select Date and Travellers

    What to Expect
    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.

    Was very Cheesey. Was a lot of acting and not what I expected. It would be good for children. I wouldn't do it again

    Literally no idea how anyone could give this tour a negative review - we had so much fun and actually learnt a lot too. We were laughing throughout and enjoyed the spooky tales as told by our very talented hosts. We really debated whether to...More

    Very disappointing. Have enjoyed excellent ghost tours in Savannah, Charleston, Wilmington NC and Virginia Beach, so maybe our expectations were too high. The tour guide put me to sleep. Don’t waste your time nor money

    Stella was excellent. We really enjoyed the tour. It was full of spooky history and mysteries. It was misty out so slightly muddy. Check the weather so you can prepare ahead.

    It was very silly. We have done several ghost tours and this one was not even close to the tours we have done in many other cities. Very little historical facts were incorporated into our tour. It was very disappointing. If you like tours that...More

    Due to the hill at the first stop, a person with walking limitations may choose to wait on the trolley. The second and third stops require walking as well but mostly flat areas and just a few stairs. The driver stays with... More
