About The Hahvahd Tour
(Trademark Tours’ public tour of Harvard University)
In 2006, two entrepreneurial Harvard students took to Harvard Square wearing fun straw hats and “Hahvahd” t-shirts. Their mission was to create the very best tour of Harvard University for visitors and tourists. What began that summer, The Hahvahd Tour, has grown to become Trip Advisor’s number one rated tour in all of Cambridge. Each year thousands of visitors laugh and learn on “The Hahvahd Tour”. The New York Times calls the 70 minute tour “theatrical Harvard History”. Legendary travel writer Paul Wade named the tour one of the top 50 things to do in America. Written Translation Guides are available in Spanish, French, and Mandarin.
