We really enjoyed the tour! The kids laughed at all of Matthew's jokes of which there were many. Lots of insights from a student's perspective and interesting history of the school and the area. Thanks for a memorable experience!

The student guide Kyle is the best and is hilarious. The time passed so fast the campus is stunning in its beauty. Definitely a must-do!

We were guided by Abel, who made it a very interactive tour with information, questions, anecdotes, funny stories. All brought with humor and sometimes a little theatrical. We had fun looking around the sites and ending at the Harvard Store.
