Including Visits to Harvard and Radcliff Yards


Your experienced guide will escort you on the Red Line Subway to the hustle and bustle of Harvard Square, Cambridge on the other side of the Charles River, where we'll listen to the street musicians and watch the chess matches in action.

Highlights include:

• Harvard Yard and Radcliff Yard
• Brattle Street ("Tory Row")
