Our tour guide, Able made the tour interesting and his delivery helped you to remember the many facts and trivia he provided us. Our group was from Trinity UAME Church in Newark, NJ. We travelled to Boston to visit about 4 colleges. Harvard was the 39th college the youth in our church have visited since 2010.

Initially we planned to walk around Harvard on our own, but then decided to book a tour with Hahvahd Tours & we are so glad we did. The tours are led by Harvard undergraduate students. Our guide was Cormac - he was great! Cormac not only provided us with history of Harvard and the specific buildings surrounding the yard, he... More

Facts and fun facts about Harvard included. You can also ask questions to your tour guide. Any age group can participate and even kids can enjoy. Beautiful campus. Wish we could have access to inside of the buildings but even from outside it was beautiful...Thanks Anna you were great!!

He asked the right questions to involve the audience and answered the audience's questions speedily and effectively - and - above all - in an outstandingly friendly and charming manner. His presenentation was both confident and lively with the right... More

Very interesting 1-hour tour of the campus run by students. Our guide Cormac was captivating and enthusiast. He was also very much understandable for foreigners as we are. Unfortunately it is not possible to enter any building. Recommended.

70 minute tour round the sites of Harvard Uni is a good way to get your bearings. You don't go inside any of the buildings, but you get a good overview of Harvard life. Some of the tour guides jokes were knowingly terrible.

We purchased four tickets at the store in Harvard Square. It was easy to find. It would have been nice to have a discount package for a family of four. Gianna was an excellent tour guide. She was knowledgeable, fully engaged with the tour and made it easy to ask questions. She made it fun and entertaining for everyone. I... More

We also took the tour with Cormac on a sweltering hot August day. We don't live far from Cambridge and I decided that, since so many of the best colleges/universities in the US are located in our home state, I need to start taking my kids (age 5, 7, and 9) to see some of them. This was the PERFECT... More
