“I couldn’t recommend it more!”

Posted on & filed under Testimonials.

…Our guide was “Elizabeth Shaw Craigie”, or “Betsy” as her friends call her, a wonderful lady born in the late 1700s.   The tour was about an hour long around Harvard Square and Harvard Yard, among other locations…so much good stuff I wish I could mention it all!  I am from the area and was amazed at how many of the places I walk past almost daily had such rich stories that I was never aware of…I couldn’t recommend it more!

“Fun way to spend an hour”

Posted on & filed under Testimonials.

…These tours–developed and staffed by actors who really know their trivia–are a fun way to spend an hour or two in ‘the Yahd.’ Especially good was our tour guide who dressed up like Professor William James during his Amazon odyssey days (Yes, he wore a pith helmet)…

“Made our time around Harvard truly memorable”

Posted on & filed under Testimonials.

I definitely recommend taking one of the tours through this organization. After taking the historical Cambridge tour, my friend and I were very pleased! The guide, who was dressed in time-period accurate clothing, was very knowledgeable and made our time around Harvard truly memorable. The tour lasted a little over an hour (I believe they are typically one hour in length but everyone in the group seemed enthusiastic to continue a bit over time) and allows you to explore the main and off-beaten paths in Cambridge. We discovered some really interesting aspects of the area which we would never have learned had we not taken the tour. Much better than just reading it on our own and much more meaningful. Not to mention the affordable price. This was definitely one of the highlights of our Boston trip!

“Fun and interesting”

Posted on & filed under Testimonials.

I was there by myself and when I saw the girls in the historical costumes and thought that was really creative. I bought a ticket and got to met knew people and most importantly very interesting facts that I didn’t know about Harvard and Cambridge, and the famous people that passed through here. Awesome tour. Highly recommend it!

“Fun and historical!”

Posted on & filed under Testimonials.

…I had a lot of fun and did not even notice 2 hours fly by. I have been on several ghost tours, yet this one was definitely the most captivating. The guides are all dressed in character and very energetic / animated…Our tour guide was Kaitlin, or rather Mrs. Elizabeth Parkman. She was a vivid storyteller making each of her stories grasping. I also enjoyed how much real history I leaned on this tour… But I do not want to give to much away, so go take the tour yourself!

“Wonderful way to tour Harvard”

Posted on & filed under Testimonials.

My wife and I ordered a haunted tour of Harvard via Living Social. Left at 7:30 for 1hr and 30 minute tour and really enjoyed ourselves. Got to see Harvard up close and personal on a beautiful night. Guide’s were energetic, entertaining and personable. The haunted part of Harvard exposed us to some fun stories that you might otherwise not ever hear about Harvard. Great October entertainment. Highly recommend.

“Haunted Harvard is a not to be missed gem”

Posted on & filed under Testimonials.

Kathy was great (Mary Bean). She is animated, intense, fun and very entertaining. She has a gift for telling a fine story and it shows. This is a great way to spend 90 mintues on and off the Harvard Campus in the dark of night. The tales are all founded in historical fact (mostly) and there’s enough detail to give each story a spine tingling spin. Harvard is beautiful and even a bit eerie at night, and seeing this different side of the campus is a treat not to be missed. this is not a hokey fun house tour, there’s nobody jumping out at you, but for 12+ kids of all ages, we all had a blast. Park at Alewife and take the T in, eat at a famous burger place like Charlies or Mr. Barklays and meet at the Harvard coop accross from the harvard square t stop and tourist kiosk. You wont be sorry and its a great value too!
