About Cambridge Historical Tours
Gruesome murders, bloody battles, untimely death, and plenty of irreverent humor will entertain and perhaps freak the visitors out on this 90-minute stroll through Harvard Square. Experienced story-telling by expert guides dressed in period costume will make everybody feel like they're back around the campfire. Tales of mediums, mourning lovers, and deceased Harvard students haunt the town as the trip creeps through the Square to finish in the dark of the Burial Ground. This tour is appropriate for all willing ages, though some violent imagery is certainly a part of the package, so parental discretion is advised. The guides 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. The participants cover the distance of roughly one mile over 90 minutes, so the pace is more of a mosey than a walk.
