Cambridge Historical Tours was founded in 2011 by two former guides for the Freedom Trail Foundation who recognized the untold treasures of Cambridge’s rich history. Cambridge Historical Tours extols Cambridge for setting the standard in American higher education and how it ultimately became a town of extreme ingenuity and innovation. Their four major tours give a comprehensive scope of Cambridge culture. They offer The Historical Hysterical Tour of Harvard, The Cantabrigia Tour of Old Cambridge, The Harvard Square Pub Crawl, and The Harvard Square Ghost Tour.
