About Cambridge Historical Tours
Offering an intimate, private tour alternative to the larger public tours, Cambridge Historical Tours' guides focus on delivering high-value entertainment while you learn. Fantastic storytelling, in-depth knowledge, and a touch of both humor and charm have kept our guests delighted for six years. Whether you're looking for tours of Harvard, The Freedom Trail, The North End, MIT, Cambridge, Beacon Hill, or surrounding areas, we can customize your path to make sure you see what you'd like to see. For travelers with kids and educational groups, we have costumes from every era. For corporate tour groups and others who prefer a more traditional tour, we can dress in business casual, or accordingly to the weather. At night, we offer private and group Ghost Tours and Pub Crawls. Private bookings of Harvard and MIT are also available in French and Spanish (subject to guide availability).

Your included all 16 sites on the Freedom Trail, most economical tour out there! Group size was perfect and your guide was full of knowledge. The tour ran over 20 minutes and became a bit drawn out towards the end. Overall I would recommend.

Hi there! Thanks for the review. It's truly hard to keep on track sometimes when our guides are so full of stories and so enthusiastic to tell them. We'll do better at time management. Hope to see you again.

Isn't Mark the best? History should be entertaining! After all, it's just stories that REALLY happened. Thanks for the kind words.

Mark was so entertaining and informative as we spent a wonderful few hours touring the Freedom Trail. The price of the ticket seemed unfairly low for the amount of fun we had. A great choice to kick off our four day stay in Boston.

If I could give this tour 10 stars I would! Julia was quite possibly the best guide I've ever had on a city tour. Super knowledgeable and explained everything in modern terms. Also very funny! There is no way you could learn as much about the freedom trail going on your own.

Thank you so much! Julia’s one of our NEWEST guides, if you can believe that. But she’s so gifted and talented, I agree, that she’s as good as any of us out there, and has even taught our veteran guides things we didn’t know. Always with charm and humor. I’m going to forward her this review as she’ll be so happy to hear it. Thanks again.
