    You don’t have to be wicked smaht to take this Hahvahd tour

    Fresh out of college and newly in the workforce, I recently found myself doing the last thing I expected to do in my young professional life: taking a college tour. But this tour of Harvard University was distinctly different from those I’d taken as a nervous high school student. There were no jittery teenagers or overeager parents, no chatter about SAT scores. This was Harvard, — or Hahvahd in the local vernacular — not as dream college, but as tourist attraction.

    The Hahvahd Tour on PoorLittleItGirl’s 15 Best Things in Boston!

    “NUMBER EIGHT – The Harvard Tour! Or wait, let me correct myself.  It’s actually called (officially) The Hahvahd Tour. Hands down, one of my favorite part of our whole trip! Our tour guide has graduated the day before (how funny we visited Cambridge/Boston the same week as graduation!) She was funny, personable and had so much insight on the campus. So cool to see the hall where Mark Zuckerberg started Facebook. And I’m pretty sure she said this is the hall where Natalie Portman lived. The entire campus is red bricks and greenery and has a ton of history. Seriously, don’t miss the trip across the river to do this tour it is totally worth it!”

    The New Face of Harvard Square

    A triangular structure looms over Harvard Square, its large windows beaming light onto the street. Ribbons wrap around its granite columns and murals decorate the walls inside.

    The building houses Curious George and Friends, a store remembered fondly by Cantabridgians as a friendly neighborhood bookstore. It closed four years ago and stood vacant, its windows dark and dusty, for another year.

    After graduating from Harvard eight years ago, Daniel Andrew could have followed a well-worn path to law school. Instead, he started organizing tours of his alma mater, leading theatrical, offbeat walks that included entertaining tales about naked winter runs, famous Harvardians, and centuries-old architecture.

    “The Unofficial Hahvahd Tour” has since grown to a popular tourist attraction that employs more than 60 guides. Andrew’s company, Trademark Tours, has also expanded to offer tours of MIT and the Freedom Trail.
