Not worth the money. You cannot go inside any of the buildings at Harvard so is more of a History journey. The MIT tour was rushed so needed to be longer however you can enter into the classrooms ect which makes it a better tour.

Rebecca, out tour guide & Harvard student, was cheerful,anaged a large group well and showed us all the sights and gave us an insiders view of campus life. You don't get to see inside any building, so the tour just walks around the campus. But definitely worth it, we felt the MIT tour was better. But this too is a great view for money.

We appreciated the manner the overview of Harvard, its history and buildings, was presented. Our guide was personable, animated and delivered the information effectively I am sorry I have forgotten her name One way the tour could be improved is to add a brief tour to some of the buildings, such as the library

We had heard that this tour was worth doing and we were lucky enough to have Michaela as our guide. What a bubbly, intelligent and informative guide!! The tour took us around the university grounds and provided a good mix of information about the history, current student activities and what it is like to study at such an iconic and impressive University. Our tour group had a mix of people from various countries. Taking the tour also got us out to Cambridge to see the areas beyond central Boston. We did not go into any of the University buildings during the tour, but having been provided with much information - we could take ourselves through them if we wanted afterwards.

A great tour, led by a student; Nia. Fun, informative and really worthwhile to hear about life on campus by a current student who also acknowledges the history of the university.
