I loved this tour! Our guide was Meghan and she was amazing! We walked all over the Boston Common into places I wouldn’t think to get into. The stories she told were part history lesson and chilling at times. It was about 90 minutes altogether and took us from the Common to the Omni Parkland hotel (which also has a rich history of the Kennedys; check out Table 40 in the restaurant where Jack proposed to Jackie).
I’m sad to leave such a negative review, but when it’s deserved it’s deserved. Went on a tour last night with Harry and it was quite literally THE WORST ghost tour I’ve ever been on. I’m a ghost tour junkie so go in every city and country I visit. If I visit a place multiple times I’ll do a different tour or if I really loved the tour (I’m looking at you York and Savannah) I’ll do the same one again. This one *shudder*, this one was a train wreck. When your guide keeps telling you to go look up the stories yourself you know there’s a problem. 90min of listening to Harry yammer and not one ghost story was told. NOT ONE STORY. I’m not kidding. The scariest thing I heard that night was a homeless lady with Tourettes. The best thing to happen was I discovered a cool exhibit on Lafayette at the Boston Athenæum, a place we stopped to hear that they had a book made of skin and then left. That’s the kind of story you’ll hear btw. A book made of skin…oooooh so scary. And that was pretty much the same delivery. “There was a book. It was made of skin. The end. Let’s move along.” I’ve heard other tour guides are good. In fact the one I was told we were supposed to have is supposed to be good. But Harry was a piece crap. Even his history was suspect. He can’t tell a story and has no idea how to do this tour. Which really is on the owner of this companies fault. Who hires a guy like poor, incompetent, Harry? All in all I’ve taken 15 ghost tours in 9 countries and one was in broken English. And still, this one was the worst.
