Boston Halloween 2012 Ghosts and Gravestones

Ghosts & Gravestones of Boston

Boston’s most frightful evening of fun this Halloween is aboard Old Town Trolley’s Ghost and Gravestones Tour. The “frightseeing” begins the moment you climb onto our ghoulish trolley where our gravediggers are waiting to take you on the 90-minute ride of your life. Be prepared to be scared as the Ghost and Gravestones trolley winds its way through Boston’s most sordid past—through 400 year-old burial grounds where you’ll hear tales of grave-robbing, tortures, punishments, executions and even some of folks being buried alive! You’ll see Boston’s most haunted hotel: The Omni Parker House, and visit some of the sites of the most gruesome murders in Boston’s History. Hear the terrifying tales of the Boston Strangler, Jolly Jane, Cotton Mather and join us if you dare as we explore Boston’s most chilling murder sites and haunted places. A night with the dead and the undead is in store for those who dare to board the Ghosts and Gravestones Halloween Tour. Tours are 1 hour and 30 minutes long. May not be suitable for children under 13. Children under 6 not permitted. Make your reservations well in advance for Boston Halloween. There is limited space available and Halloween is the most popular time to go frightseeing!
