Native Bostonians John Feeley and Cheryl McDonald lead tours dressed as their midcentury counterparts, Jonathan Wendell Holmes and Frances Appleton, while sharing tales of the city’s history and culture. The ghost tour of Beacon Hill thrusts patrons into close encounters with specters, and on the Irish Heritage tour, trolleys roll through Eire-influenced sites including the Boston Public Garden and Fenway Park. The Beacon Hill tour begins with a sighting of the State House’s brilliant gold dome before groups stroll down the brick sidewalks of Mount Vernon Street, the cobblestone corridor of Acorn Street, and the legendary Boston Strangler’s daily jogging route.
