What makes this tour special

Cobblestoned pathways hemmed by charming colour-washed houses, red-brick walls, and bloom-filled terraces make Cambridge one of the most genial spots to spend a day. To really let the sounds, flavours, and history of the town become part of your own travel story, enjoy a private walking tour of the town that is home to two of the world’s most notable universities. On your private, guided tour of Cambridge 

Spend a few hours walking around the town’s two universities, and strolling the Charles River with a private guide. 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.
 
Wander the hidden side streets, check out the offbeat street art not associated with the town, and hear the neighbourhood gossip which brings Cambridge to life. Your tour of Harvard and MIT is immersive - bringing meaningful and like-minded interesting people together that would never meet if you stuck to the main tourist drag. 

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.
