Yesterday marked the third annual Trademark Company Vision retreat. Senior Staff spent the day discussing our goals and values for both the near and distant future. We also invented a handshake, enjoyed a tense standoff over pouring procedure, and met Mitch! If none of that makes sense - that's ok! All these inside jokes helped us form a serious vision for Trademark Tours (and City Wine Tours too!)

Happy Halloween from The Hahvahd Tour! Check out a tour during the day, and a night watch the hands-down craziest Halloween movie in the series!

John Carpenter never wanted Halloween to become a franchise and, after the disappointment of the second film, he convinced the producers to try it his way – focus future films in the series on the holiday itself, not a particular antagonist. Unfortunately for everyone, audiences just wanted to s...

On Thursday, Out of Town News will close -- officially and permanently, although it's already gone dark. Earlier this month, the shelves that Mohammad Rahman had stocked with broadsheets and tabloids, hobby journals and high-brow magazines were already nearly bare.

Our “Hahvahd Tour” Story

In 2006 a pair of ambitious Harvard students set out to provide visitors a world-class tour experience that lived up to the world-class reputation of Harvard. Over a decade later (and countless accolades and awards awards later) the company those students created is still offering a world-class experience at Harvard University. Our tour name, “The Hahvahd Tour” derives from the quirky local Bostonian accent to not pronounce R’s! Up in Boston they say pahk instead of park, cah instead of car and Hahvahd instead of Harvard! The Hahvahd Tour is still led exclusively by Harvard students. Guests find the tour to be both entertaining and educational. Our quality derives from our tour script, tried and tested over thousands of tours and carefully preserved from one class of guides to the next. Our co-founder, Dan Andrew Bodt (Harvard Class of 2007) still runs the company as CEO and encourages you to come visit Harvard Square!
