Boston Ghosts and Gravestones Tour

53 Reviews

  • Location: Boston, Massachusetts
  • Duration: 2 hours (approx.)
  • Tour code: 5046BOS_GG

Join other adventure seekers and become an apprentice grave digger on an entertaining tour through the darker side of Boston. A scary, fun and informative frightseeing experience that is truly one of a kind.

Step aboard the trolley of the doomed and join your host, a 17th-century grave digger, cursed with a sentence of eternal damnation. This wretched creature is doomed to travel the streets of Boston and relay the stories of the unfortunate souls he encountered and the macabre events he had been witness to during his purgatory.

Hear about Boston's most sinister characters - from the Angel of Death to the king of all killers - the Boston Strangler. Learn about all the haunts that call the "Hub" their home. But that's not all! Step inside two of the oldest burying grounds in Boston for a walking tour you will never forget. Learn the significance of much of the imagery found in these 17th century burial grounds and the famous and not so famous (but even more interesting) occupants therein.

Visit Copp's Hill Burying Ground in the North End, nestled atop the tallest point in one of Boston's oldest historic districts. Here you will visit the final resting place of Cotton Mather, a man famous for his "intimate" involvement with the Salem Witch Trials. Then to the Granary Burying Ground where you will visit the final resting places of many of the famous heroes of the American Revolution including John Hancock, Paul Revere and Samuel Adams.

Remember that half of the tour is walking, so comfortable shoes are recommended (so you don't become "dead" on your feet)!

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.
