Walking Tour of Cambridge, including MIT and Harvard

Walking Tour of Cambridge, including MIT and Harvard

Enjoy a private, guided tour of Cambridge, including MIT and Harvard, to discover the sights most often missed by travellers.

To really get to know your way around Cambridge in Massachusetts, and to visit the sights that visitors so often miss, a private walking tour is a fantastic option. Cambridge is a city that sits across the Charles River from Boston and is home to both MIT and Harvard University. Steeped in history, the charming town of Cambridge is packed with literati, academics, artists and intellectuals. You don't have to be an academic or history buff to enjoy it, as there's plenty more to Cambridge than the campuses of Harvard and MIT. On your tour, you'll trace its four centuries of American history, starting with its origins.

At the end of the tour, you'll have the chance to enjoy an artisan coffee or beer as you learn the city's gastronomic journey.

Please note: when campuses are closed to visitors, your guide will extend the visit in other areas of interest.
