  • Itinerary

    While Boston started the American Revolution, Cambridge gave birth to the army that fought it. This town is also the birthplace of such diverse talents as Tip O’Neill, Margaret Fuller, EE Cummings and Matt Damon.
    Your personal, private, costumed guide will show you that Cambridge is more than just Harvard University; with tales of Puritan morals, Revolutionary strife, literary prowess and simple domestic life, your guide will paint a picture of the lives that came before us. Nearly every block has been the site of a story worth telling!
    Visit Winthrop Park, the Red House, the William Brattle House, the Dexter Pratt House, the HA Rey House, the Longfellow House/Washington's Headquarters, Radcliffe Yard, the Cambridge Common, Christ Church and the Old Burial Ground in Harvard Square.

    We had an excellent tour with our Guide Daniel. We were on a women’s only weekend and booked a walking tour to include history,humor, shopping and bars. There were 10 of the 15 women visiting that took the tour and each and every one of them enjoyed it immensely. The continued to rave about it when we arrived back home, Daniel was engaging,entertaining and patient. I would not hesitate to recommend Cambridge Historical tours to anyone!
