About This Tour
The official Freedom Trail Lantern Tour offers a first of its kind experience in uncovering the grim, macabre history and mystery of the Freedom Trail! Fatal sword duels, the grave of a ruthless pirate, scenes of scandalous murders, and the hangings of convicted witches: all real history, and all explored on the Freedom Trail. Descend into the grisly side of Boston’s iconic red-lined path by lantern light with a darkly cloaked Freedom Trail Player and bring to life true accounts of grave robbing, cold-blooded killings, and the appalling crimes of spies and assassins. This tour is recommended for visitors aged 12 and up.
