Boston: Historic After Dark Ghosts and Spirits Tour

10. Boston: Historic After Dark Ghosts and Spirits Tour

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…

What people are saying about New England

Basic tour of Fenway Park in Boston. We sat in the seats above third base for a nice history of the park from our excellent tour guide. A walk up through the Sox' Hall of Fame to the press box. Amazing view and information. Then out to the Monster seats and the final send off from our tour guide. Easily accessible by the Boston T from anywhere in the city, and a great way to spend an hour-plus at beautiful Fenway Park.

This was a great tour of Fenway where you get to sit in the press box and up on the green monster wall. Lots of history and interesting stories about the park and the tour guide was fantastic with all his genuine passion for Fenway and its history. We got a souvenir photo (extra cost) and got to see the world series ring the tour guide was wearing.

Loved the tour. Short and sweet but gives you a good sense of the school and it’s history. Our guide was the owner of the company and went to Harvard as well as his father before him. Loved the personal anecdotes. Great tour overall and well worth the small fee.

a very low key, entertaining and nourishing introduction to the history and culture of Portland.

We thoroughly enjoyed the tour although had been looking for a scary tour.
