The tour guide (played in period) gave a witty entertaining narration of the history of Cambridge and particularly Harvard. He managed to weave history in with funny historical facts, and had an excellent knowledge of his subject. . . The pace was easy, but we kept on schedule. The extra 30 minutes of the 2 hour tour were worth the extra time, ending up at the Longfellow House.
I took the 2 hr tour and ended at the Longfellow house. . . I really appreciated the fact that they mentioned things related to women’s issues in history. You don’t usually find this in tours, it is usually based on the male perspective, so I give them mad props for that!
