The Hahvahd Tour
If you’re visiting Cambridge, you’ll want to stop off in Harvard Square. This historic district is home to a wide variety of restaurants, shops, and a little school called Harvard University.
Those looking to learn more about the University and its history should consider checking out the Hahvahd Tour. These expeditions are led by current Harvard students, so you know your guide is an expert.
The Hahvahd Tour is part history lesson and part modern tour. You’ll learn about the University’s beginnings and hear untold stories from its past, while also learning what it’s like to live and study at the famous institution from some of its current students.
Guests can expect to walk through Harvard Yard, visit the renowned Widener Library, and get up-close with the famous statue of University founder John Harvard.
While this attraction is centered on Harvard University, guests will also get some great insight on Harvard Square. Remember, this is the neighborhood your guides call home, and they’ll be sure to include details about the best restaurants and attractions around the Square.
The Hahvahd Tour clocks in at about 70 minutes, with a total walking distance of less than a mile, so you won’t get too tired while you expand your knowledge of the university.
Guests meet their guides in the center of Harvard Square just outside the area’s primary Red Line T Stop (1376 Massachusetts Avenue to be specific). And if you have trouble finding your guide, be on the lookout for their signature maroon Harvard T-shirts and straw hats.
This is a relaxing, easy tour full of great info for more than just prospective students. If you’re not convinced, check out the video below.
