Get off the Freedom Trail and walk into the darker side of Boston! This original guided walk through misery, misfortune, malevolence, and murder is based on true historical events that have occurred in Boston. Fact is often stranger than fiction.

On this tour through Boston''s Dark Side with Boston by Foot you will hear many dark and disturbing stories they like to keep from the tourists. Topics include but certainly not limited to the dangers of Richmond Street, the scourges of smallpox and the Great Influenza, the vandalization of the Royal Governor''s House, the Molasses Flood, and the infamous Brink''s Job all against the backdrop of Boston''s oldest neighborhood where the corpses on Copp''s Hill moved around more dead than alive.

In 2013, the Boston by Foot Calendar offers 9 Classic Boston tours.
