Jake led a great tour!

Took the tour for free as we'd already done the Duck tour. Excellent guide Jake who was great fun despite some pretty bad jokes which he reckoned his boss had written!! Jake made sure the group all had a good time and the fact that he is currently studying there made it more real and relevant. Highly recommended!!

Jake was great, and the tour was interesting! Learned some great things about the Widener library, as well as Harvard Yard and a few other special spots at Harvard University. My tour included lunch at Fire and Ice, which was yummy. My only wish is that we were able to go inside some of the buildings.

For some reason, my 10 year old wanted to go on this tour very badly. It actually was more fun than I anticipated, due to Jake's funny commentary. Now my kid wants to skip 6th grade and go directly to Harvard.

Great, great tour. I was there with friends and we learnt a lot about the University and their cool secrets. Definitely a must while you're at Boston. Our guide Ronia was so much fun, she had a way to deliver the story that you just will remember it for a long time.

Our guide, Tanner was very informative. Loved hearing that he & Matt Damon shared a dorm. Good length tour with neat highlights & buildings along the way. Great job!

This was a great way to "see" Harvard with young kids (ages 9&11). Our tour guide was excellent and very knowledgeable (I think her name was Robin) and answered all my daughter's questions in an age appropriate manner. Easy walk around Harvard Yard.

I enjoyed spending an hour learning cool facts about Harvard from our guide Justin. I highly recommend this as an introduction to this campus and institution.

My family of four really enjoyed the tour with Jake. We learned a lot about the campus and the history of the school, and discovered lots of fun facts about Harvard that we never knew. The pace was perfect and Jake made sure everyone had fun along the way. I highly recommend this option for touring Harvard!

Fun and family friendly tour. Our Zach did a great job. At the end of the tour they take you to a gift shop that owned by the students and all the money goes back to the students of Harvard. And the prices were very reasonable and good quality items.
