Old Town Trolley Tours of Boston 4.3

Ghosts & Gravestones Tour

boston ghost tour ticket

Walk amongst the dead in burying grounds nearly four hundred years old, hear stories of those whose mortal remains lie beneath your feet, and listen to tales of many of the sordid practices that went along with them.

Old Town Trolley Tours invites you to explore Boston’s darker side aboard the city’s only “frightseeing” ghost tour, Ghosts and Gravestones. Prepare yourself for an evening of fun, scares, and ghost stories guided by a 17th century gravedigger. You’ll visit the streets where the Boston Strangler once prowled and hear local tales of murder and mayhem, ghosts and ghouls.

Your Ghosts & Gravestones Tour Includes:

  • Reservations are required
  • Explore Some of Boston’s Most Haunted Sites…
  • Walk Amongst the Dead in Burying Grounds Nearly 400-Years-Old
  • 100% Satisfaction Guarantee
  • Exclusive Night-Time Access into Two of Boston’s Oldest Burying Grounds
  • See Boston’s Most Haunted Hotel: The Omni Parker House

Hear all about Boston’s darker side!

In a city nearly four hundred years old – troubled with war, murderers, strife and the occasional bout of stray molasses, it is hardly any wonder that Boston remains one of the most haunted cities in America and stories of the glory days of Colonial Bosston only scratch the surface of Boston’s darker side.

Explore some of Boston’s most haunted sites…

See Boston’s most haunted hotel: The Omni Parker House. As you pass by, you’ll hear stories of the hotel’s more bizarre and permanent tenants. Hear the gruesome saga of the Boston Strangler, and see where his final victim breathed her last.

King’s Chapel Burying Ground

The oldest burying ground within the confines of downtown Boston; this is the final resting place of many of Boston’s first inhabitants. Here you may peer inside a decrepit charnel house which contains the jumbled bones of hundreds of forgotten souls and learn of Ephraim Littlefield and his shocking black-market body trading scandal of the Victorian era. Or perhaps you will hear the tale of King’s Chapel’s Strangers Tomb and the ghost who haunts it.

Please note: Each tour will visit 2 of the following 3 burying grounds: Copp’s Hill Burying Ground , The Granary Burying Ground and King’s Chapel Burying Ground .

Tour runs most dark and stormy nights so dress appropriately. Part of the tour is walking. Wear comfortable shoes.

Ghosts & Gravestones Boston

Time Out says

Explore the spooky side of Boston on the Trolley of the Doomed. On this 90-minute tour, you’ll hear tales of the Boston Strangler, of murders and executions that took place on the Boston Common, and of paranormal activity at the Omni Parker House. Most of the tour is aboard the trolley, but you’ll also walk through two of the oldest burial grounds in the city and visit the site of a notorious grave-robbing scandal. The tour is available year-round, but Halloween is the best time to go (book tickets early), especially in costume.
