Join Boston By Foot for its most popular event of the year! There is no better place than Beacon Hill to walk to the dark side on All Hallow’s Eve. Guests hear stories that shed a new light on this quiet residential neighborhood. Murder and mayhem lurk just below the surface. Beacon Hill transforms itself for Halloween with elaborate decorations and hoards of trick-or-treaters in costumes.

For more than 30 years, this tour has been part of any great Halloween celebration in Boston.  The Boo! tour highlights the Hill’s dark legacy of mystery and murder.  Visit the home of the infamous Dr. George Parkman and learn what happened to his dismembered body. Learn about Boston’s witches and hear how both they and visiting Quakers were hanged. The true and morbid tales include those of serial killers, apparitions of ministers and murderers who walk in their sleep. Tour guides will take you through dark alleys and show you Beacon Hill as you have never experienced it before.
