Join our ghostly costumed guides for 90 minutes of thrilling and chilling tales on this haunted walking tour of Harvard Square.

About this event

Gruesome murders, bloody battles, untimely death, and plenty of irreverent humor will entertain (and perhaps freak you out) on this 90-minute stroll through Harvard Square. Excellent story-telling by expert guides dressed in period costumes will make you feel like you’re back around the campfire. Tales of mediums, mourning lovers, and deceased Harvard students haunt the town as we creep through the Square to finish in the dark of the Burial Ground.

​Don’t fret. You won’t wet your knickers. This tour is appropriate for all willing ages, though some violent imagery is certainly a part of the package, so parental discretion is advised. We focus on telling great stories, cracking cheap jokes, and making sure everyone is having fun.

Meet your guide outside the entrance to the Harvard Square COOP at 1400 Massachusetts Avenue (the entrance with the columns between the Milk Bar and the bank!). The tour will end at the Old Cambridge Burial ground around the corner from the COOP and across the street from Cambridge Common.
