Don't go on this trip if you're expecting to be scared. It was very entertaining. It is a bit pricey. Loved Dotty

Our host was extremely difficult to hear because she wore two masks. I understand the need for safety but when paying for a tour it would be. Ice to hear the content. The sound system on the bus was scratchy with her masks on and on the walking part outside I could not hear her at all. I expected to hear more content about the Boston Strangler and other ghost stories but the parts that I did hear seemed fake and extremely rehearsed. We did have one part of the tour at the second cemetery where another person took over. He was great- loud, entertaining, engaging. Took the tour at 8:00 on Dec. 11

This was a really fun trip that we decided to do after spending the day doing the Old Town Trolley tour. We had a lot of fun on this trip and our guide did a great job. He was funny, interacted with everyone, and did a good job telling us the ghost stories of Boston. It was kind of a chilly night but this trip was well worth it!

The energetic and knowledgeable “ghost plague nurse” actress, Mercy, gave a spooktacular show as we rode along a handful of sites of tragedy and heard spooky campfire stories. We stopped at two cemeteries and got out and walked through them, stopping at a few graves to hear interesting stories and take photos. Great for any age above 7 that loves ghost stories and facts about serial killers.

At $50 a person we expected more. The haunted/macabre history shared was definitely interesting and it was moderately entertaining, but I would recommend looking at other options if I had it to do over again. One of the tour guides on the trolley was very hard to understand as he was attempting to use a sinister tone that made him hard to understand.
