What To Expect
The Hahvahd Tour 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”.
Public Tour of MIT Trademark Tours’ public tour of MIT is hosted by charismatic MIT students. Our dynamic and knowledgeable staff entertain and inspire with stories about MIT history and personal experience at the university they call home. The research and innovation that happens at MIT has a profound and direct impact on lives around the globe. Our 70 minute walking tour highlights these stories and brings alive one of the most interesting campuses in the world.
