What You'll Get
Due to the large number of ghosts they can hold, haunted houses are consistently scarier than cursed sleeping bags, possessed lean-tos, and ectoplasmic studio apartments. Discover Boston’s ghost-infested hangouts with today’s Groupon: for $9, you get a 90-minute walking ghost tour from Haunted Boston Ghost Tours (up to an $18 value), which begins at Central Burying Ground in Boston Common.
Haunted Boston Ghosts Tours investigates Boston’s historic and purportedly haunted sights on a 90-minute tour along Freedom Trail. Ghost-savvy guides recount chilling tales of Boston's most famous phantoms and sprinkle in fascinating, non-supernatural facts about the area's rich history. Walk among the decrepit tombstones and mystical secrets at Boston Common’s Central Burying Ground, then listen to the ghastly tales of the Boston Athenæum, the city’s 200+ year-old library. The tour ends inside the Omni Parker House Hotel, which may or may not be occupied with otherworldly guests who keep stealing the complimentary shampoo. Group sizes max out at 30, and tours are held rain or shine. Participants will be called if the tour is canceled due to lightning, snow, or stubborn poltergeists that are too busy filming a new movie with Woody Allen. All ghost stories are appropriate for children 8 and older.
Although Haunted Boston Ghost Tours sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.

About 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.
