Dare to Begin the Ride

Ride the eerie trolley and set off on a discovery of Boston's darkest secrets and tales of lost souls that still roam the city streets. Join your 17th-century grave digger host on the trip to some ghostly sites as they tell you sinister stories about the hauntings. Find out about the ghastly murders committed by the Boston Strangler and see the spot where his last victim took her final breath.

Visit 2 of Boston’s Oldest Cemeteries

The trolley, winding through the roads of Boston, will lead you to 2 of the 3 oldest cemeteries in the city that are about 400 years old. The King’s Chapel Burying Ground is the oldest of the three cemeteries, where you can visit the allegedly haunted King’s Chapel’s Strangers Tomb. Visit Copp's Hill Burying Ground in the North End, where lies the grave of Cotton Mather, a man noted for his involvement in the Salem Witch Trials. At the Granary Burial Ground, find the graves of Ben franklin’s family members and Sons of Liberty member Paul Revere.

A Haunted Hotel Straight Out of a Horror Movie

The Omni Parker House Hotel, Boston’s most haunted hotel, is surrounded by stories about eerie occurrences and apparitions. Rumors of disappearing orbs of light, sounds of a rocking chair, and an elevator stopping randomly at the 3rd-floor shroud this hotel in mystery and horror.
