History and death in Boston – that means GHOSTS!

Your 90-minute ghostly adventure begins when you meet your guide near Boston Common. Designated “America’s Oldest Park”, Boston Common is a beautiful, relaxing place during the day, but after dark it may be the best place in Boston to encounter a ghost.

As your guides leads you from one haunted place to the next, they’ll recount thought-provoking tales of death in Colonial America. As this is an adults-only tour, it will delve into mature topics and use language that some people might find unsettling. Be prepared to have the thought of death in your head for 90 minutes and be comfortable visiting some very haunted locations.

Some of the spine-tingling places you'll possibly visit:

  • Kings' Chapel Burying Ground: From ill-figured phantoms and headless spirits to mysterious voices, be prepared for unearthly happening. By day, the cemetery serves as a relic of colonial America with headstones dating as far back as the early 17th century. By night, the cemetery transforms into a hotspot for very unusual encounters.
  • Boston Common: Said to be one of the most haunted places in Boston, criminals, pirates, and accused witches were publicly executed here for over 100 years. The 350-year-old park is full of graves, gallows, and ghosts.
  • Omni Parker Hotel: A part of Boston’s historic district since 1855, the Omni Parker Hotel has long been rumored to be haunted by former employees and guests of the Hotel. Who are the phantom figures roaming the halls of this opulent hotel? Everyone checks in but who hasn’t checked out?
