What makes this tour special

Cobblestoned pathways hemmed by charming colour-washed houses and red-brick walls and bloom-filled terraces makes Cambridge one of the most genial spots to spend a day.  To really let the sounds, flavors and history of the town become part of your own travel story, experience the town with a local. After all - travel isn’t just about travel, it’s people, faces, food and cultures, fresh perspectives, discoveries and different ways of life - it’s about uncovering the city’s soul. It’s about connection. On your private, guided tour of Cambridge with a local: 

To stroll Cambridge is to trace four centuries of American history, freedom from puritan colonists and birth. The city is bursting at the seams with beautiful buildings steeped in history, from war monuments, battlefields, and universities with more than 135 Nobel laureates split between the city’s two schools.Today Cambridge is a byword for forward-thinking, liberalist, arts, intellectuals, literature, academics, innovation and entrepreneurs. Upon crossing the Harvard Bridge over the Charles River, you will be swept away into the academia and yet accessibility of this quaint American town hugging one of the country’s largest metropolitan hubs. 

Enjoying a private, guided tour of Cambridge  with a local will help you discover the sights that tourists so often miss. Wander the hidden side-streets, check out the offbeat street art not associated with the town, and hear the neighborhood gossip which brings Cambridge to life. While you walk the the leafy campuses of Harvard and MIT, you will uncover its authenticity through the eyes of a local. Your tour is immersive - bringing meaningful and like-minded interesting people together that would never meet if you stuck to the main tourist drag. And don’t worry if you don’t consider yourself an intellectual or history buff, Cambridge has plenty to offer foodies and beer-elitists. Hear about the city’s culinary scene over a craft brew or a light-roast coffee with your local guide before parting ways.
