    What to Expect
    Boston’s original “frightseeing” tour is an evening of fear and fun. Climb aboard the Trolley of the Doomed for an experience unlike any other. Uncover Boston’s darkest secrets and hear the stories of those lost souls who many locals believe still wander the streets and alleys of this historic town.
    Learn about some of the city’s most sinister characters, from Albert DeSalvo, better known as the Boston Strangler, to Jane Toppan, aka Jolly Jane, one of the most prolific serial killers in American history.
    Walk through two of the oldest burial grounds in Boston, including Old Granary, the final resting place for many notable Revolutionary War-era patriots like Samuel Adams, John Hancock and Robert Treat Paine, plus Paul Revere and the five victims of the Boston Massacre. Also, visit the site of the biggest grave-robbing scandal in New England’s history.
    Come with an open mind and see if any ghosts appear. It’s a ride on the dark side.

    A little pricey for what you get, but overall fun. They say part of the money goes towards the upkeep of the sites they visit. My 11 year old loved it, the guy who ran the tour was a hoot!

    Very fun and informative tour of Boston. The staff makes the tour so much fun. Wear comfortable shoes as there is some walking - hills and some stairs. Definitely worth it!

    The Ghosts and Gravestones tour was amazing! I have been on quite a few haunted tours in different cities, but I had never seen one with a trolley or such dedicated employees! The trolley is decorated with gothic decor, and each worker is done up...More

    Due to the hill at the first stop, a person with walking limitations may choose to wait on the trolley. The second and third stops require walking as well but mostly flat areas and just a few stairs. The driver stays with... More
