Full description

Embark on a unique after-dark tour and explore downtown Boston’s most haunted hotspots.

Discover both the paranormal and historical worlds of each carefully selected tour site and listen to researched, authentic, and up-to-date accounts that ensure you have the best, most chilling experience possible.

Highlights of the tour include:

Omni Parker House

Haunted by its first owner and other notable ghostly guests, the Omni Parker House is considered Boston’s most haunted location.

One room, in particular, has caused so much trouble, terror, and grief that the hotel was eventually forced to convert it into a storage room, lest they risk another guest suffering from a grisly night’s stay in the cursed room.

What could possibly drive a hotel to permanently retire an otherwise perfectly good guest room? Discover the details on our tour.

Boston Common

This seemingly placid area is the country’s oldest park. For a century of its long history, Boston Common was the site of hundreds of hangings. Not all of the victims of these executions managed to escape the park, even after death.

The grim ghosts of the hanging victims are the least of your paranormal concerns in the Common. Keep your eyes open and your wits about you whenever you’re at this park… or else.

Old South Meeting House

Witness the birthplace of the Boston Tea Party protest and the very American Revolution itself at the Old South Meeting House. This building is of crucially historic importance, but that’s not the only legacy the meeting house is known for.

It is a specter that sometimes appears and always acts as a harbinger of impending death. Or perhaps it’s no messenger of death at all, but instead directly responsible for the string of deaths that have befallen the unlucky ones who’ve encountered it.

Old City Hall

This former hub of Boston’s local government has since become a bustling mixed-use commercial and office property.

Because of its historical significance being covered up with the new polish of redevelopment, at least one ghost exacts its revenge for this perceived disrespect for history on visitors.

The Old City Hall may be magnificent looking, but watch where you look inside…

The tour was very historically interesting and the ghost tales were so entertaining. Not only did we learn about Boston’s history, we were also captivated by the guide’s stories relating to the locations. Our tour guide (Jarrod) was a great story teller and taught us so much. I would choose do this style of tour over a regular tour because it kept us very intrigued and excited to learn more along the way.

great stories, nice walk, small group, & both me and my husband had an "experience" along the way (I felt like someone smacked my ankle with a switch and immediately afterwards he said his shoulder was burning-he had a scratch along his shoulder when we looked back at the hotel-it was gone by morning).

Lia was our guide and she was amazing! She clearly has a passion for storytelling and even in the rain we had a blast!! Did not see any ghosts but it was easy to imagine coming across one of the many phantoms she described. Very eery and spooky and definitely a highlight of our mini vacation.
