"We did the "Dark Side of Boston Tour." This was hands down one of the best things we did while visiting Boston. The tour started in the North End. The tour was about true historical events that have occurred in Boston. Since my husband and I were both History majors, we were really excited about this tour. The tour lasted for 1 1/2 hours. The topics included, stories about smallpox, influenza, the serviceman coming in on boats, vandalization of the governor's home, the Molasses flood, body snatchers and even the Brink's robbery. The tour was only $12 per person and we got to walk around in the historic North End area and hear all about these "not so talked" about historic moments. Will recommend to everyone I know who is visiting the area, or locals!" - Grand Rapids, MI
