“Nice walk full of history and great architecture”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2013

Yale campus is one of "must see" places in New Haven. Essentially, it's most of New Haven anyway.
This place is full of history and features some of the oldest buildings in the town.
Come in on a good day and bring a camera - there are plenty of opportunities for taking pictures.
Don't have to join a tour. In fact, going solo (maybe with a guidebook) is a better way to manage your time there.

“Visitors tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2013 via mobile

I've been there two years ago. I was really impressed with passion of the guide (one of the students). He was willing to answer to all question. Very enthusiastic, passion, positive, interesting. Also visited some areas inside. Don't remember his name but I have feeling guides all good.

Amazing architecture, free art museums, beautiful fall colors, historical gothic buildings, and of course the Skull and Cross Bones secre society building! Super cool! Would recommend visiting this campus, if just walking around.
