I did the tour with my 13 years old daugther and we both enjoyed it a lot. The guide was knowledgeable and told us funny anedoctals on Harvard. It is certainly worth doing it.

I had high expectations for the tour but was disappointed. It is billed as a 70 minute tour but ours was done within 45-50 minutes. I thought it would be more interesting and witty. There wasn't that much interesting history and the guide was a bit self promoting.

This is a great way to see Harvard. We did the tour with our 15 and 12-year olds and everyone thought it was very entertaining. It was easy to pick up the tour at the Harvard subway stop, no advance booking necessary. Our tour guide, Ted is a sophomore at Harvard and he was full of interesting facts and anecdotes... More

This is a great way to see the campus and get some fun facts about its history directly from a Harvard student. The tour was free with our duck tour tickets.

We had a really humorous tour guide who, being a student, knew a lot about Harvard. We had a delightful walk through the grounds and learnt a lot about the place. Would definitely recommend.

This tour was fun and easy. The tour can be done last minute, as there are tours leaving every 30 minutes. When we visited, it was very alive as all the freshman were settling in! Perfect timing to see the vibe! Our guide was hilarious, and knew just about anything Harvard. Great 90 minutes well spend!
