Looking for some fun Boston tours for teens that you'll also enjoy?
Start with Boston's most unusual sightseeing tours with irresistible themes: ghosts and graveyards, chocolate, whales, high-speed boat rides, and movies.
Add some entertaining tour guides, chocolate tasting opportunities, a few screams in the middle of Boston's oldest graveyards, frolicking marine animals, blaring rock music, and water in your face (yes, your teens may love this more than you do).
And what do you get?
You'll hear the words that make traveling with your teenager worth the effort: "Wow, this is the best vacation EVER!!!"

Do just the 3-hour tour - or get a combo ticket and spend the rest of the day exploring the New England Aquarium. Your teenagers will love this, and you will too!
With 400 years of history, Boston has seen plenty of murder, mayhem, and even death by molasses. From the moment you step aboard the "Trolley of the Doomed," meet your gravedigger-guide, and start your journey, you'll hear fascinating stories about the darker side of the city.
Needless to say, this is one of the most popular of all Boston tours for teens!
Speed, 360 degree turns, and loud 80's rock music blasting from Codzilla's 30 on-board speakers make it easy to see why this cruise ranks high with teens. The crew's totally cheesy jokes about pirates and mutant cod add to the fun.
You'll enjoy the tour through Boston Harbor. Plus, on a hot summer day, it's a perfect way to relax and cool off.

With the best chocolatiers as destinations along the way, you may be in a chocolate-induced coma by the end of the tour. But your teen will have sweet memories of Boston!
