Spooky ghost tour in Harvard Sq.
, Oct 2021
Sam Jones was our tour guide and he was amazing. He was a fantastic story teller and brought all of the stories to life all around Harvard square and will make me think of the city in a totally different light going forward!
First Haunted Tour of my Life!
, Oct 2021
Just the way I was just carried away through the storyteller’s haunted stories associated throughout various historic spots homes and ending at the graveyard! Most importantly walking in Cambridge Harvard Square at night in the month of October! The most fascinating were the Harvard campus buildings typical of New England Architecture including favourite most obvious First Parish Church at the Swumner statute behind the Graveyard. On the whole the experience was very good from beginning till ending as our Guide Mr Nate made the tour interesting with his captivating stories and little dramatization ( just the way he was in Victorian costume😊) Could also feel the Harvard vibe with typical of Harvardians (if I may) attitude on the streets! Where intelligence exists also there’s notoriousness!!! In the tour group was enjoying, lively Involved engaged in the activity. Just the wholesomeness of experience was a aplomb! 110 percent recommend the tour to everyone who like bearable kind of spookiness with haunted stories. So many familiar celebrities and billionaires’ association with the Harvard university fraternity and clubs is just amazing. Most importantly the historical Massachusetts figures in the haunted junctures of their lives… The air filled with not only October spookiness also the spices of multi cuisines restaurants open in almost full capacity in new form was just sumptuous. Got myself a snippets of recordings and photos of the town/city which go into my memory digital storage!!! Never mind the experience for it is the Harvard University Cambridge that the world raves about! Thank you Viator snd Cambridge your operator for such a wonderful haunted your!
Great tour. Worth checking out.

This was a great tour. Nathaniel was a great tour guide despite some hecklers in the front row and a homeless guy telling him to STFU. The stories were amazing and his presentation was as well. Nathaniel knew his stuff and made it fun.
