In a city nearly 400 years old - troubled with war, murderers, strife and the occasional bout of stray molasses, it's hardly any wonder that Boston remains one of the most haunted cities in America. Join us aboard Ghosts & Gravestones and explore Boston’s most chilling haunted places, famous murder sites and spend time with the dead as your tour includes exclusive nighttime access into two of Boston’s oldest burying grounds.

The Ghosts and Gravestones tour was informative, light hearted and fun. The staff dressed up in costume and were informative. The tour lasted around 90 minutes and included visits to two burial grounds and sites with checkered histories while driving around in the trolley. Worth...More

Took two 16yr olds on the 7pm tour. Anthraxicon was entertaining and a good story teller. Not a scary ghost tour, more of a historical experience. We did a ghost tour in Barnstable 2years ago that was more of a “ghost tour”. The two stops...More

We have done a small number of 'ghost tours' over the years but this one was a particular disappointment. Very 'ham acting', not really vaguely scary in the telling of the stories. In fact they fell somewhat flat in both scare and/or humour. Guide was...More

Thank you PipPaul for your feedback. It's always good to hear from those who rode the tour. We're sorry it didn't meet your expectations. I wanted to address two concerns, the radio call during the tour and the group coming together in the 2nd graveyard....More

This tour was 35$ a person and it wasn't great. We got maybe 3-4 ghost stories and they were just not great. For example the tour guide said they buried John Hancock and had to move him years later when a Church was build. The...More

Based on previous reviews we were expecting a fun, scary, informative night. What we got was quite frankly a 'rip off'!! We wandered through 2 cemeteries, got told a few historical facts relating to the grave sites, sat on a bus which meandered around town...More

The event was a open tour buss ride with a "deadly" narrator and two stops at historical cemeteries. Along the way you get informed about some of the "haunts" of Boston, like the Boston Strangler, the Omni hotel and other places. Not terrifying, but sometimes...More

Loved the tour up until our second tour guide Betty made a political statement against our president, which had nothing at all to do with the tour, Otherwise the tour was very historical.

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. You are correct, our President and politicians are very much alive and have no place on our ghost tour. I have forwarded your original comments to the Manager and the necessary corrections are being made.

Downtown
The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with
historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through
one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston
Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling
statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the
pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where,
during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting
children and eager tourists through the pond. Have
