I tour you must join if you are in Cambridge. You will learn a lot of history and also funny facts. Easy to follow, both in language and the Walking distance.

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour, given by Jake. He was armed with the full history of the college and put his theatrical skills to work by entertaining us too.

Our family went on this tour as part of our Go Boston card. Tour guide was Eli who was a Harvard rising senior student and he gave an excellent tour including history and many very amusing anecdotes. Tour lasted about an hour. Would definitely recommend.

We took the Hahvahd tour on July 5th and were lucky enough to get Jake as our tour guide. He made Harvard come alive! Probably one of the best tour guides we had the whole of our recent trip to Boston. Definitely a must if you are visiting Boston/Cambridge area. Only annoying thing was that we forgot we could have... More

We learned a lot about the history of Harvard and walked the grounds. I wish we could have entered some of the buildings. Our tour guide was good.

I bought the Duck Tour and this Harvahd Tour was free when I showed them the Duck Tour tickets. Emily was my tour guide and she has good humor and the tour was informative. Nice walk around the campus.
