About the activity provider

Storytellers in Top Hats and Hoop Skirts (though rarely both at once) will tell you all the weirdest, funniest, saddest, and most fascinating stories around Harvard, Old Cambridge, and the newest history being made in Cambridge. Enthusiastic humor and great stories allow us to entertain nerds, clowns, scholars, and skeptics. Guides are local actors with years of storytelling experience, and an infectious love of history, art, and science. You will leave wondering why everything isn’t taught this way.
