We were led on our tour by some sort of water creature - I don't know what - weird. It was just too much - less would have gone further. Half of our tour literally did not get back on the trolley halfway through the tour. They just "disappeared" - ghostly coincidence?? Or did they just have enough?? The worst... More

Kitty, Thanks for your review. We're sorry you didn't have a good time. People have an awesome time on the tour... but it's not for everyone. We have a great deal of respect for the graveyards and I can assure that this never happened. We keep everyone on the path and would never allow or encourage guests to run or... More

Wonderful camp humour from John, our ghoulish guide. He made it so much fun and had even better jokes than we did Well worth the money

My daughter & I always do ghost tours when we visit new cities. I consider myself a connoisseur of these types of things, actually! New Orleans, Gettysburg, Lancaster, Myrtle Beach, Salem... This was more of a true tourist trap, standard scripted stories. Fiona was our guide. She was wonderful. Extremely enthusiastic. But when we entered the 2nd cemetery we had... More

Great tour! The cast was very entertaining and learned some new interesting facts about Boston. Was fun to see Boston in a different light. If you are looking for something for an evening event this is a great way to go.

We had hoped to do this in the dark because it would have added to the atmosphere but because of scheduling issues, we did it early evening. Interesting commentary by the tour guide in period costume. The actual graveyard tours were the best part of thus for me since it combined some actual history along with stories infused with some...

The Ghost and Gravestones tour was a great night of entertainment thanks to our energetic, humorous, and creepy hosts, Jonathan Goodspeed and Captain Havoc! Full of great information and atmosphere and our bus driver, Lucretia, ably transported us to two historic cemeteries and other notable sites around Boston. It is also good to know that a portion of the ticket... More

Unfortunately, we were unable to make the tour because our plane did not make it to Boston on time. The person I spoke with, Kitty, was fantastic to deal with and I didn't feel we were "stuck." She gave me instructions of how to get a refund. I hope next time we can make it.

The staff was, as always, extremely awesome! Very friendly, polite and knowledgeable! Our Ghost and Gravestone Tour guide was funny and didn't force a creepy character while telling the ghost stories. (I believe her name was Fiona, she had a British accent and was outstanding!!!) Thank you!
