  • Haunted Boston Ghost Tours
    Wielding a flickering lantern, one of Haunted Boston Ghost Tours? guides leads groups through the streets and alleyways of Beantown, illuminating dark corners to expose any lingering apparitions. Beginning at Central Burial Ground, groups stroll through some of Boston?s most historically haunted areas, including the Boston Athenaeum, Boston Commons, and Freedom Trail, ultimately ending at the Omni Parker Hotel. Along the way, a knowledgeable guide explains the history of the various specters lurking about, as well as the stories behind their demises, which date back to colonial-era Boston. Guides lead these tours every night of the week, rain or shine, for tour takers as young as 6 years old in groups of all sizes, excluding any ex-Ghostbusters.

  • Boston Civil War Tours
    Bastions of the abolitionist movement, Boston and its progressive citizens helped motivate activists across the nation to stand against slavery, thus fanning a flame that contributed to the Civil War. During a 90-minute Boston Civil War tour, groups walk among historically significant sites where figureheads such as Frederick Douglass and William Lloyd Garrison publicly asserted their outrage and sought refuge from enraged mobs. While strolling through Beacon Hill on Sunday, knowledgeable guides point out the African Meeting House—a recruitment center for Massachusetts' all-black regiment—and the homes of famous authors such as Louisa May Alcott, who pulled from her experience as a Union Army nurse to write Hospital Sketches in 1863.

  • Classic Harbor Line
    Classic Harbor Line offers glimpses of modern-day Boston, Manhattan, Newport, and Key West with their fleet of sailboats and classic yachts. Passengers can engage in day trips, private charters, and special events on the water set against a backdrop of sunsets or shimmering displays of city lights at night. Modeled after 1890s schooners, the company's Boston flagship, Adirondack III, uses its long, lean shape to easily cut through any waves or giant blocks of Jell-O floating in the harbor. At 80-feet, the vessel carries up to 41 passengers and provides plenty of room to move around, allowing crew members to serve beverages or guests find the perfect vantage point to snap a picture of the sunset. Classic Harbor Line also offers a 1920s styled open-air Motor Yacht, the Beacon, which has wrap-around seating, a sun deck, and plenty of shaded areas as well. While cruise-goers enjoy the boat's narration and music, they can also take advantage of the beer and wine available for purchase.
