FAQs

Does the tour run in the rain?

YES! The tour runs on dark and stormy nights. The only time tours will be cancelled due to weather is if conditions prove to be too dangerous to proceed. In this event all reserved parties will be notified.

Where do I pick up the trolley?

Go to Map and Directions.

What time should I pick up my tickets?

You must check in with our gravedigger at least 15 minutes prior to your tour. Of course, you are welcome to check in even earlier than that.

Where can I park?

Go to Where to Park for parking available near our departure point.

Is the tour handicapped accessible?

Reasonable accommodations for all of our disabled guests will be made. Please call us at least 24 hours in advance so that we can make appropriate arrangements.

Unfortunately, because a significant portion of our tour takes place in historic burying grounds that do not have any accommodations for people with disabilities (as historic sites, they are exempt from such requirements), and include stairs, cobblestones, and other types of rough terrain, the tour is not recommended for guests who are unable to safely navigate such elements.

Can I buy my tickets online?

Yes. However, buying your tickets online DOES NOT GUARANTEE YOU A RESERVATION! You must call (866) 754-9136 to make a reservation. You also must bring the E-Ticket print out with you when you arrive at our ticket booth. Tickets are also available through our Gravediggers directly by calling either number. Go to rates and reservations.

When do your tours run?

Please go to our Boston tour schedules page.

Is Ghosts & Gravestones popular?

YES! We are the most popular night time tour in the city of Boston. By the time each tour leaves, it tends to be sold out. We recommend making reservations as far in advance as you can.

How scary is the tour?

This tour is rated PG-13 and is not intended for young children. Due to the loud noises on our tour, children under the age of 6 are not allowed onboard. It is not a haunted house; but it is a historical tour turned completely on its head. We use haunted house style moments, historical facts, and creative storytelling to thrill, entertain, and scare our guests.

Are food and drinks allowed while on the tour?

Food and drinks are welcome. However alcoholic beverages are not allowed under any circumstance for the safety and comfort of all of our guests.
