Very interesting ghost tour, wonderful guides, intriguing spirit communication activity at the end.

Unlike any other ghost tour I've done.

I have always loved ghost tours and paranormal stories, and on my family's first night in Boston we found this tour. Our tour guide Chris was hilarious and a fabulous storyteller. Though the tour was not what I was expecting, and the paranormal instruments were a little hokey, the guides took their time at each location and really made the tour personal. You could tell by the way Chris told the stories that he really loves what he is doing and really brought the stories he told and Boston's history to life. Chris is an extremely knowledgable tour guide and answered questions thoroughly. Overall a fun and interesting tour! If you are looking for some good stories and a great tour guide, ask for Chris! He made our trips to Boston and Cambridge something special :) wicked awesome!

Let me start by saying that we were two very foot- weary women by Start time of 8pm. The two tour leaders were certainly very fervent in their paranormal (ghost) experience. there is less emphasis on the history and more on what to call different ghost experiences. so if you go expecting more history, you might be disappointed. you do hear about the boston massacre and history of an old beautiful hotel, some buildings (as you walk from fanueil hall to boston commons). warning - you do not end where you started, so there is a walk, cab or subway back. i was ready for the tour to end. Nice guys but somewhat corny.

It was our first time in Boston and we had a great time even in the pouring rain. It was a cheap way to be entertained. Our tour guides were very knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor. This is recommended for anyone who loves a great ghost story.

We are local Bostonians with an interest in both history and paranormal activity. This tour was the best of both worlds. It is just long enough and not a ton of walking. I appreciated the combined skeptic vs believer angle that both guides demonstrated throughout the tour as well as their obvious knowledge base about local history. There is a planned, indoor, air conditoned spot with bathrooms inside the Omni Parker House hotel which added a nice touch seeing that it is an entire walking tour. The Boston Common experience was interesting but a "hit or miss" depending on the other people in your actual tour group. One particular guy on our tour was a total skeptic which I respect, but he was rude to spirits..can only imagine how he is with the living! I got a feeling that one of our tour guides had had it with him as well, too bad no one had the power to throw him off the tour. What a d-bag. Overall, a good, cheap fun time to be had! This would have garnered a perfect 5 stars but the chemistry and style between our two tour guides was a little funky...we had Andy and Ralph....both very nice, very knowledgeable, and with two totally different styles. Unfortunately it seemed like those styles were in conflict with one another throughout the entire tour with one getting irritated with the other one. It was a little uncomfortable. For example, Ralph would interrupt with some tidbit while Andy was talking, or Andy would correct Ralph while he was trying to tal, or remind him of something that he had missed in the middle if the presentation. Ralph busted out a weird flashlight to use during the experiment portion of the evening that Andy had never seen before which I also think impacted the communication with the spirit realm. It was an overall, funky dynamic that grew old. Might want to work on the pairings of guides.
