"A little history, a little spooky, a lot of fun"

An hour and a half of local ghost stories and history. Told in an entertaining fashion. Not recommended for small children, as they might be too scared. Couple of things. My gps took me to the wrong place. So make sure you have their number. Also, this is not a sit on the trolley all night and ride around. You get out and walk through a couple of cemeteries and one is up an incredibly steep hill. So that may not work well if you have mobility issues. But overall, a wonderful time!!!

For newlyweds or nearly dead. Good grief. This is a beautiful city. Can’ t you do any better?? At this price. Half of the sights you talk about but don’t go by to view. The history is limited w very little interesting detail. Windows are covered w plastic limiting a clear view. Heat stinks . Froze to death. Never again

My husband and I were in Boston and decided to spend an hour and a half being scared on our last night. Our host was absolutely brilliant, complete with bloodied costume and supreme scary acting (at least I hope it was acting). She set the scene immediately and the tour included two graveyards and stories about infamous murders in Boston’s history. It was really interesting as well as creepy and we enjoyed it hugely. Highly recommend this tour.
