    What to Expect
    Boston’s original “frightseeing” tour is an evening of fear and fun. Climb aboard the Trolley of the Doomed for an experience unlike any other. Uncover Boston’s darkest secrets and hear the stories of those lost souls who many locals believe still wander the streets and alleys of this historic town.

    Learn about some of the city’s most sinister characters, from Albert DeSalvo, better known as the Boston Strangler, to Jane Toppan, aka Jolly Jane, one of the most prolific serial killers in American history.

    Walk through two of the oldest burial grounds in Boston, including Old Granary, the final resting place for many notable Revolutionary War-era patriots like Samuel Adams, John Hancock and Robert Treat Paine, plus Paul Revere and the five victims of the Boston Massacre. Also, visit the site of the biggest grave-robbing scandal in New England’s history.

    Come with an open mind and see if any ghosts appear. It’s a ride on the dark side.

    The tour guides were engaging and entertaining while riding, walking and in the graveyards. Their stories are an interesting historical perspective not typically earned in school.

    Absolutely loved this tour and loved our guide “Anthraxicon”. It was a dark and rainy night, so creepy to begin with. Our guide was very into his role and made the whole experience so much better. Some of the graveyards were particularly creepy. A great...More

    Due to the hill at the first stop, a person with walking limitations may choose to wait on the trolley. The second and third stops require walking as well but mostly flat areas and just a few stairs. The driver stays with... More
