Join other adventure seekers and become an apprentice grave digger on an entertaining tour through the darker side of Boston. A scary, fun and informative frightseeing experience that is truly one of a kind.

Step aboard the trolley of the doomed and join your host, a 17th-century grave digger, cursed with a sentence of eternal damnation. This wretched creature is doomed to travel the streets of Boston and relay the stories of the unfortunate souls he encountered and the macabre events he had been witness to during his purgatory.

Hear about Boston's most sinister characters - from the Angel of Death to the king of all killers - the Boston Strangler. Learn about all the haunts that call the "Hub" their home. But that's not all! Step inside two of the oldest burying grounds in Boston for a walking tour you will never forget. Learn the significance of much of the imagery found in these 17th century burial grounds and the famous and not so famous (but even more interesting) occupants therein.

Visit Copp's Hill Burying Ground in the North End, nestled atop the tallest point in one of Boston's oldest historic districts. Here you will visit the final resting place of Cotton Mather, a man famous for his "intimate" involvement with the Salem Witch Trials. Then to the Granary Burying Ground where you will visit the final resting places of many of the famous heroes of the American Revolution including John Hancock, Paul Revere and Samuel Adams.

Remember that half of the tour is walking, so comfortable shoes are recommended (so you don't become "dead" on your feet)!

Immerse yourself in this truly diverse immigrant neighborhood and without another tourist in sight, you’ll have it all to yourself!

Fasten your seatbelts for an unforgettable time in East Boston. Join us for a truly local experience as you discover what’s going on over on the other side of the harbor. Your tour begins at the Aquarium “T” Station on Boston Harbor’s Long Wharf.  Take in views across the harbor at East Boston before we head underground to the Blue Line T Station.  Your guide will help you navigate the modern system as you get on the train and travel under the Harbor through the oldest subway tunnel in the country, (in fact, it’s the third oldest in the world, dating all the way back to 1904!).  If time allows, we will get out at the Maverick T Station to tell you more about the subway project. 

Back on the train, we’ll travel just one more stop to the Airport T Station.  Enjoy the local scene at Bremen Street Park, and your guide will lead you through the park and into the heart of East Boston.  As we walk, you’ll see shops and restaurants reflecting the diversity of the East Boston residents.  You can travel around the world in East Boston without ever having to leave the neighborhood! 

Next, it’s time for bowling Boston-style, with candle-pin bowling.  Before hitting the lanes, you’ll have the option to pick up a beverage to bring over to this classic neighborhood bowling alley which encourages you to BYOB.  Built in 1950, this bowling alley hasn’t changed much, with manual scoring, gravity-powered ball return and wood paneling completing the retro atmosphere.  After bowling a few frames, you’ll come to love this New England pastime.  If bowling isn’t available, we’ll make our way over to one of the neighborhood billiards halls where we’ll have a chance to play a game of pool together.  When you grab a beer, enjoy the music and chat with the locals at the pool table, to really get a feel for what this neighborhood is all about. 

The evening continues as you walk down Meridian Street, taking in some murals depicting the history and influence of immigration in East Boston. We will continue to Maverick Square, where we will enjoy a snack or two along the way.  You’ll discover the best variety of food in all of Boston concentrated in this area, from Colombian bakeries, to Italian sandwich shops, Mexican taquerias, El Salvadorian cafes and Chinese restaurants, the choices are endless! 

Your tour concludes at the heart of East Boston - Maverick Square.  Ask your guide for the best dinner recommendations and continue the fun or make your way back to Downtown with the feeling that you’ve experienced Boston at its realest.

Your experience begins at the Aquarium “T” Station on the historic Long Wharf, the focus of Boston Harbor, and the economic engine of Boston for most of its history. From the harbor, we’ll continue past the Rose Kennedy Greenway, State Street and the historic Custom House Tower, the city’s first skyscraper. Then, your guide will lead you toward the famous Faneuil Hall and Quincy Market, which both boast stunning views. 

Moving into the heart of Downtown Boston, we will stop in front of the Old State House and site of the Boston Massacre.  Was it really a massacre or maybe just great propaganda for the Revolution? Ask your expert guide about that one! 

A short trek through Downtown Crossing and past the Old City Hall will take you to one of the most historic places in the country, King’s Chapel Burial Ground (city’s oldest burial ground) and King’s Chapel (the first Anglican church in the country). Whenever possible, your guide will take you inside King’s Chapel, the first church in the USA to have a pipe organ. If we’re lucky, we might just get to hear it being played.    

Somewhere along the way during this tour, you’ll have a chance to rest your legs and enjoy a refreshing local beer.  Your guide will choose among some of the most historic, quirky and hidden local bars and taverns in the area.  

On most weekdays, you’ll have a chance to see the government at work (or not) inside the inspiring, historic, and beautiful Massachusetts State House, designed and built by famous federalist architect Charles Bulfinch in 1798. Outside the State House, take in the views of modern Boston, including the skyscrapers of Downtown, the Financial District, and the tallest building in New England - the John Hancock Tower.  

We continue our journey through Beacon Hill, where you’ll have a chance to take in the quintessential architecture of Boston’s red brick row houses.  Get out your cameras – this neighborhood is one of the most photogenic in the city.

Finally, we arrive at the beautiful Boston Public Garden, one of Boston’s favorite green spaces, where you’ll see locals walking the dogs, playing with the kids, and enjoying lunch in the shade.  Your guide will point you in the right direction, and will help with any and all recommendations for great things to do in Boston that evening and beyond.
