your chance.

Affluent folks are usually fairly adept in the intellectual arena; if that sounds like your clients, we say their trip to Boston, after a morning shopping on Newbury Street or exploring the banks of the Charles River, should include a stimulating tour of MIT. Trademark Tours recently launched Cambridge’s only public tour of the famous intellectual institution. (Trademark Tours also runs the highly popular Hahvahd Tour.) Guests will follow current MIT students on a 70-minute walking tour of the main campus and Kendall Square area, learning about MIT’s famous graduates and campus along the way. The tour, much like the Hahvahd Tour, is scripted to be theatrical, funny, and, of course, entertaining. The primary sights that guests will see include The Stata Center, The Great Dome, The Green Building, Lobby 7 and the famous Alchemist Statue. Tech-junkies will also like seeing the Facebook, Google and Microsoft headquarters in Kendall Square. Note: The tour will run on weekends through the end of August at 11:30 a.m., 12:30 and 1:30 p.m. The group will meet outside the Kendall Square Subway.
