I visited Harvard at the beginning of January out of tourist season, which was great, because myself and one other lady, had our tour guide pretty much on a one-to-one basis. Zak, is a second year psychology student who enthusiastically showed us around the buildings and told us some hilarious tales of what the students get up to (from a... More

We went on the tour to get some inside-info on Harvard, of things that you usually don't know by just looking around the campus yourself. We got plenty of that and then some! The guide was very enthusiastic, informative and funny. We went into a few wonderful buildings, and learned a lot of trivia that people don't usually get to... More

It was a really nice tour and we were given a lot of very interesting information on Harvard University. Because it was student-led we also received a lot of info on the experience of studying at Boston. Unfortunately it started raining during our tour so the last part was a bit rushed, but I still enjoyed the tour. The tour... More

I took this tour as a attraction covered by my Boston Pass, but I would have been happy if had to pay for the full tour. Our tour guide was Ted, a Harvard sophomore, but I could have never guessed that it was his second year if hadn't told us that. He knew a great deal about Harvard history and... More

Fun tour by Jacob. We had a multinational group, and he did a great job of speaking clearly. We enjoyed his jokes and knowledge of the university.

I found it a little confusing to know which tour is which. I went on the student led tour run by trademark tours and titled Hahvahd. I met at the kiosk outside Harvard red line subway station 1376 Massachusetts Ave, Cambridge MA 2138 and bought my 10$ ticket in the magazine store next door. Tour guide Jake featured all the...

It was great time with this tour and tour guide(I don't know exact name but sounds Vantae, sorry). He explained every history and behind story of each building of Harvard. It took about 90 minutes(officially 75 minutes). If I were there without this tour, it can be just sightseeing, but with this tour, I could learn more about Harvard history.... More
