Gruesome murders, bloody battles, untimely death, and plenty of irreverent humor will entertain (and perhaps freak you out) on this 90-minute stroll through Harvard Square. Excellent storytelling by expert guides will make you feel like you’re back around the campfire. Tales of mediums, mourning lovers, and deceased Harvard students haunt the town as we creep through the Square to finish in the dark of the Burying Ground.
Don’t fret. No ghosts have followed anyone out of Harvard Square yet, and they haven't haunted any dreams of late. This tour is appropriate for all willing ages, though some violent imagery is certainly a part of the package, so parental discretion is advised. We focus on telling great stories, cracking cheap jokes, and making sure everyone is having fun.

You will almost certainly NOT see a ghost on this tour. Sorry. They just don’t seem to work like that. However, in fairness, photographs taken inside the Burying Ground have contained very bizarre images.
