Welcome to Haunted Boston Tours, where we put the spook into SPOOKTACULAR!
We are based in the glorious city of Boston, specializing in historically accurate ghost tours around this fabulous city. We offer two types of tour, a 90 minute foot tour taking your through historic and haunted streets and buildings aimed at finding rumored ghosts and ghools as well as a 60 minute bus tour which stops off at the very same sites and is ideal for those who find 90 minutes of walking to be difficult or families with lots of little ones to keep control of.
Our tours are also split into two levels of spooky, all tours before 7pm are very family friendly and ideal for children of all ages. Those after 7pm are a little more spooky and probably not suitable for children under 10, although this is the parents choice.
You will hear stories and visit Bostons most famous ghosts, as well as tour the antique cemetery’s we have here.
We welcome everyone to come join us, people who live in Boston are welcome to a 10% off with proof of residency (just bring ID). We are sure you will learn something about your amazing city.

Tour meets in the Boston Common at the entrance to the Central Burying Ground Cemetery on Boylston Street. This is NOT the cemetery where Paul Revere or John Hancock are buried; that’s the Granary Burying Ground down on Tremont Street.
For the Central Burying Ground Cemetery, if you’re at the corner of Tremont Street and Boylston Street (where the Boylston St. T stop is on the Green Line) you will see a Dunkin Donuts, turn right and walk down Boylston Street about 1/2 block, past the stone maintenance house (on the right), you will see a brick pathway that leads you to the entrance of the cemetery. It is across from the Barnes & Nobles at Emerson College and the Colonial Theater (106 Boylston St., Boston, MA 02116).
A parking garage is located on Charles Street (Zero Charles Street)between the Boston Common and Public Gardens.
Are reservations required?
We ask that you make reservations to ensure availability and for the tour guide to know how many people to expect. We try to keep the tours under 30 people per guide, anything over that is too large of a group and it makes hearing the guide difficult. We do offer private tours of any size with multiple tour guides.
Where can tickets be purchased?
Your reservation is held with a credit card at the time of booking. You can either leave the reservation on your credit card or pay the guide cash at the time of the tour.
What forms of payment are accepted?
Mastercard, Visa, American Express, Discover, cash, and for private group tours we accept checks.
What if it rains? Will the tour be cancelled?
The tour is conducted rain or shine, unless it is severe weather with lightening and thunder. We do cancel the tour if it snows.
If that happens, everyone will be called regarding the cancellation.
Is the tour appropriate for children?
Yes, the tour is appropriate for most ages. We do many school group tours each year and all stories are appropriate for ages 8 and up. Of course we have had 6 year old children on the tour and it did not faze them, whereas the 40 year old parents went home and had nightmares; each person is different.
Do you offer tours for large groups?
Yes, we are the only ghost tour in Boston that can accommodate groups of all sizes. Our largest group was for 180 people. The tour was divided into 6 groups of 30 people each. We have excellent tour guides that can handle any situation. We also are able to help arrange bus parking for large groups.
Are the tour times listed the only times available?
Private group tours can be scheduled at any time.
Is the tour wheelchair and stroller accessible?
Yes, it is, however there is one hill that has a slight incline.
What are the terms and conditions?
The tour is all walking, involves walking on uneven streets and sidewalks, up hills or inclines, as well as crossing streets with car
and pedestrian traffic. Haunted Boston Ghost Tours, LLC and staff
are not responsible for injury or damage (directly or indirectly)
sustained to people or property in connection with the tour.
Does the tour end at the same starting location?
No, we start the tour at the Central Burying Ground Cemetery in the Boston Common, but the tour ends at the Omni Parker Hotel.
