Frequently Asked Questions

We understand that you may have some questions about our Ghost Tours - and you don't want to call. Below you can find the answers to some of the most commonly asked questions we get about our tours.

Are these walking tours?

ALL of our Ghost Tours are Walking Tours. You do have other options, such as Hearse Ghost Tours and Trolley Ghost Tours. To FEEL the energy that our ghosts give off, you have to be in the actual places where the haunting takes place. Imagine walking through a haunted alley with all of the lights out or standing on what was once a battlefield. Are you already feeling the tingles up your spine?

  • Walking Tours allow you to immerse yourself in the stories we tell.
  • Walking is good for you a great way to walk off that amazing dinner you just had!
  • You're not crammed into a vehicle, almost certainly squished in next to someone you'd rather not be squished up against.

Ghost City has never sold Groupon vouchers - and we never will. There are companies which offer their tickets for sale on Groupon. And if you're not worried about the quality of the tour you're getting, you can certainly spend some time on Groupon or Living Social and find tickets.

We know that our experiences are of the highest quality, with thousands of 5-star reviews from tourists and locals who have enjoyed them. Also, we often sell out - especially on the weekends and on Holidays. There is simply no reason why we'd sell our tours on Groupon.

There are a few options to take a ghost tour by vehicle. In Boston, you can choose from a Trolley Ghost Tour or even one in a hearse.

If you're interested in taking one of these trolley ghost tours or a hearse ghost tour, you'll have to go to those companies' websites and buy from them. We believe that walking tours are the best way to experience paranormal activity in Boston.

We understand that you may have your heart set on riding around the haunted streets of Boston in a Hearse or Trolley - but you cannot do this from Ghost City. If you want a paranormal experience that is truly spooky, Ghost City is the way to go.

Some locations allow us to come in; most don't. Many of the locations that you'll be visiting are private residences. Obviously, the residents would not be happy about us coming into their homes. Therefore, we do not go into most of the locations we visit.

If you're looking for a Ghost Tour where you can enter the building itself, we highly recommend our Haunted Pub Crawl. Every stop on the Pub Crawl allows you to enter the building - and sometimes even into areas that are off access for the general public.

All ticket sales are final. Like any other performance, and yes, our Tours are performances, we can only admit a limited number of people. Therefore, we cannot give you a refund should you decide not to attend.

However, we're not a bunch of unreasonable monsters. We allow our guests to reschedule their tickets to another date or time as long as you do it at least 12 hours in advance.

When it comes to buying tickets for our tours, the following classes of tickets are based on age.

  • Ages 0-5: We do not charge anything for anyone 5 or under. They get to attend our tours for free!
  • Ages 6-11: This is considered a child ticket as defined by the city of Boston.
  • Ages 12+: This age range is considered an adult ticket.

Keep in mind, some of our tours are simply for ages 16+ or 21+ only. For those tours there is only one ticket type you can choose from.

All of our Tours run 7 days per week. In addition, we often open up additional time slots for our tours as the original time sells out. If you want to book a tour, Ghost City Tours will ensure that we are able to fit you in a tour. We still advise you to purchase your tickets as soon as you know which tour you want to take.

Purchasing tickets for our Boston Ghost Tours

You can purchase your tickets online or by phone. In either case, you'll receive your tickets immediately via email. You must buy your tickets in advance.
