Grusome murders, bloody battles, untimely death, and plenty of irreverent humor will entertain and perhaps freak you out on this 90-minute stroll through Harvard Square. Excellent story-telling by expert guides dressed in period costume will make you feel like you’re back around the campfire. Tales of mediums, mourning lovers, and deceased Harvard students haunt the town as we creep through the Square to finish in the dark of the Burial Ground.
Don’t fret. You won’t wet your knickers. This tour is appropriate for all willing ages, though some violent imagery is certainly a part of the package, so parental discretion is advised. We focus on telling great stories, cracking cheap jokes, and making sure everyone is having fun.
This tour is wheelchair accessible, with the exception of the Burial Ground. We cover a distance of roughly one mile over 90 minutes, so the pace is more of a mosey than a walk.
The tour features:
-Winthrop Park and Peet’s Coffee
-Cambridge Ice House
-Wadsworth House/Harvard Yard
-Cambridge Burial Ground
-And other spooky corners housing haunted history
