“Great tour with a great guide”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

We were given a tour by Alex, who was wonderful; very entertaining and kept things moving at a great pace. The information presented was very interesting and the key parts of the University were highlighted. I would highly recommend this if you are a visitor (or even a local) to the area.

“Informative & interesting tour!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2012

Our tour guide, Bre, was really bubbly and entertaining. It is definitely more insightful to have a tour of the campus by an existing Harvard student. I would highly recommend this tour to any visitor!

“Great Tour, Even better tour guide”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

Had a tour given by Bre back in August and it was fantastic. She was very energetic and told some of the best stories and jokes (even if she was the only one laughing it was still great). She was very interactive with the group and made everyone feel welcome and part of the tour. I would highly recommend anyone taking the tour to ask for Bre specifically.

“Awesome Tour - Even impressed my not wanting to go teenage son!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

Great tour. Took the family which included my 3 kids ages 12 to 17. They were a bit tired of tours given all the freedom trail tours we did but they really had a great time. Jess Lucey our guide was great and funny. A must for people to get some fun insight to the area and Harvard in general.

“Very good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012 via mobile

Really enjoyed the tour, Megan was fun and informative. I do agree with comments from others that there is confusion over cost of tour-claimed as free but in reality is $10 per person. Its worth it so it should be said upfront.
