The tour guides are students at Harvard. Our guide was new, a freshman. He had a more senior student with him to help out at times he needed a bit of a correction in a fact but that is totally understandable he told us he was new. It was clear the entire group liked the guide for the price I... More

Loved every bit of this tour where our guide (darn, now I can't remember her name) gave us, not just an insightful, inspiring and interesting tour, she shared her own authentic story of how she got to Harvard. And our tour guide story to Harward.... was so inspiring it should become the next Hollywood Bestselling Movie!

Great tour given by Kyle who was a final year student at Harvard. It was a cool fall day and we were only 6 on the tour which lasted about 75 minutes. It really gave the visitor a taste of Harvard and its history. Sadly we could not see the interior of buildings. Time well spent on a beautiful campus.

I don't frequently leave reviews but felt almost compelled to leave one after today's guided tour. Sarah was fantastic, very funny, charming and knowledgeable, she interacted with everyone on the tour answered everyone's question and always had a smile on her face, even in this terrible weather. The tour is well worth the money, wish I was fortunate to have... More
