Learn about Boston's macabre past and its dark shrouded history of witches, executions, strange events, ghastly court records, and ancient tunnels. Long before the "BIG DIG" (the nickname of our underground highway project, which became the largest public works project in history), ghoulish creatures have been known to roam secret tunnels below Boston's north end. Hear spine tingling tales on the lantern tour as you walk through the city by candlelight through the dark alleys and little used corridors. You will discover another side of the city that most have never seen. SEE BOSTON BY NIGHT on this amazing and interesting tour. Professional guides will walk you through the most historic parts of the city. Narrating the tour at certain points of interest, and answering your many questions along the way.

Did this years ago with my friends and family. One of the most memorable excursions ever! We have traveled the world and this was one of the most fun things to do!

Not only was this tour mis-represented as a "ghost tour," but it was lead by someone who seemed to know almost nothing about the city itself! We did not hear one ghost story the entire time and were left following a guide around the city...More

The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with
historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through
one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston
Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling
statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the
pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where,
during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting
children and eager tourists through the pond. Have
