  • Cambridge, MA 02138

Tours of Harvard, Harvard Square, Kendall Square and Old Cambridge! Learn the most captivating, hilarious, and occasionally bizarre stories in nearly 400 years of Harvard and Cambridge history from guides in period clothing. We'll teach you all there is to love about our area, whether you join us for our Historical Tours, Innovations Tours or for a Ghost Tour or Pub Crawl!

Our customizable tours can take you through the history of Harvard, or the history of Cambridge and its involvement in the Revolution, Abolition, American literature, and the history of science. For evening fare, come learn about our Ghosts, or enjoy drinks and old-timey toasts on our Pub Crawl. Engaging professional storytellers make our tours charming and funny, as well as educational. Out-of-towners have called our tours a must when visiting the area and natives have been pleasantly surprised to learn how much they didn’t know.

Group tours are a great outing for people looking to get to know the area, to learn about the pranks and politics of Harvard, or just to have a fun afternoon or evening out. We can tailor our tours to your needs, altering the duration and focus to suit your schedule and interests.
