What you'll do

Hey there! We are offering private, customizable walking tours of campus.
Tours can be scheduled at requested times.

You've been on college tours- they're generic and scripted to sell themselves. We offer a different experience to the standard UMass tours that are real, intimate, current, and customizable to what YOU want to see and hear about!

After discussing a route, time, and what you're looking for in an informational tour at UMass, we would meet you nearby campus and guide you through in a timely but relaxed manner. We can even walk backwards if you wish!

We want to answer your tough questions and show you a different UMass than the standard tour route. We can end the tour where we began, at a food venue, or on a bus route.

Tour sizes are limited to five people. Tours run approximately 90 minutes. Time of day flexible. Due to coronavirus, we require masks and social distancing at all times.

We cannot break into any buildings, but most are open weekdays in the summer and it is a public university. We know this campus like the back of our hands and are completely comfortable in any section of campus. Feel free to send questions!

Prospective UMass students and parents THIS is the tour to take! Declan was exceptionally well spoken, engaging and honest. He took time to really understand our daughter’s interests while making sure he thoroughly covered things we hadn’t considered. Highly recommend both Odessa and Declan UMass experience!
