Full description
Dying to take a ride on the dark side? Explore Boston’s sordid past on this “frightseeing” ghost tour of Boston. Prepare yourself for an evening of fun, scares, and ghost stories guided by a 17th Century gravedigger. Our tour guides are dying to tell you tales of Boston’s dead in their
own unusual way.

You’ll visit the streets where the Boston Strangler once prowled and hear local tales of murder and mayhem, ghosts and ghouls. At Copp’s Hill Burying Ground and Granary Burying Ground, depart from the trolley and explore Boston’s two oldest burying grounds on foot. But be warned, you never know what kind of ghoulish creatures you may encounter as you explore the grave sites of John Hancock, Paul Revere, Samuel Adams, and others. Travel back in time with us and learn about the spirits of notorious characters who lived and died in Boston.
