Do you believe in ghosts?  Well, do you??

Step aboard the trolley of the doomed... and join your host, a
17th Century grave digger, cursed with a sentence of eternal damnation. 

Ghosts & Gravestones® Tour Highlights:              

  • See the darker side of Boston
  • Step inside two of the oldest burying grounds in Boston
  • Hear about Boston's most sinister characters
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. Join other apprentice grave diggers on an adventure through the darker side of Boston on the Ghosts & Gravestones® tour. A scary, fun and informative fright seeing experience that is truly one of a kind!
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 proper 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.
On the  Ghosts & Gravestones® tour, visit the 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 most famous heroes of the American Revolution including John Hancock, Paul Revere and Samuel Adams.
