See Where Mobsters Hung Out and Heists Happened on This Boston, Massachusetts, Trolley Tour
Oh yes, the lure of the mob and its history in Boston. We have a fascination for the criminal underworld, past and present, as we get drawn into true crime shows, podcast, and fiction crime shows on a weekly basis. And Boston definitely has tons of true crime stories.
Whitey Bulger, who passed away a few years ago, is by far Boston's most notorious gangster. At one time, he was the FBI’s #2 most wanted until Osama Bin Laden was killed, pushing him up to the #1 spot. Enter Mobsters and Lobsters, run by Victoria Collins and her husband Tommy.
According to its website, it's a one-of-a-kind trolley tour that takes you inside Boston’s storied, shadowy, sinister underbelly while clearly having a blast.
The city’s unique intermingling of mobsters, law enforcement and politicians shows how criminal empires were built and how they crumbled, along with a “wicked” funny sense of humor and authentic Boston accent from Tommy.
You'll get a tour where heists happened and where mobsters created hideaways and hangouts. You can even see the ‘old neighborhood’ locales shrouded in intrigue and mystery.
Then, you'll finish up the tour with a lobster dinner right on the waterfront.
Guests will hear tales of thievery and scams, mayhem and cover-ups, and untimely demises. The tour concludes with a famous lobster dinner at one of Boston’s finest waterfront restaurants. (There are alternate menu options for those who wish.) Make Mobsters and Lobsters your choice for your Corporate Team Building activity or Company Outing.
FYI, you can also just do the tour without the lobster dinner.
So if you haven't tried the Mobsters and Lobsters Tour in Boston, you may want to add it to your to-do list, because this trolley tour through Boston's mob underworld is quite the party.
