Part-time Tour Guides for Historical, Science, and Ghost Tours


Cambridge Historical Tours is seeking storytellers, performers, teachers, historians, or smooth-talkers to lead costumed walking tours of Harvard, MIT, downtown Boston, and Ghost Tours. Our energetic storytellers, sometimes dressed in period attire, lead groups on  jaunts through the most enthralling avenues of Greater Boston history. Tours are part time and seasonal, and our season runs from mid-April through November.

Pay is $80 flat fee minimum for a private tour. $60/hour for custom tours longer than 90 minutes. Perfect part-time work for actors with a love of history or historians with a love of public speaking!

We try to cultivate a very professional air for our Executive Private Tours, but we need folks who can also get goofy or excited for a group of kids. GREAT, FUN WEEKEND SUPPLEMENT FOR TEACHERS!

Must have some weekend flexibility. Weekday flexibility a plus. 
Background in history, theatre, or education a plus.

We are looking for bilingual guides!  

Diverse backgrounds not only welcome, but strongly encouraged to apply. Guides of color are needed for the most appropriate delivery of our African-American historical tours.

How To Apply:

Interviews come first, followed by a brief audition to show off 5 minutes of your potential tour.

To set up an interview, please email your cover letter, headshot and resume to Daniel Berger-Jones at
