“Visitors tour”
Reviewed November 26, 2013 via mobile

I've been there two years ago. I was really impressed with passion of the guide (one of the students). He was willing to answer to all question. Very enthusiastic, passion, positive, interesting. Also visited some areas inside. Don't remember his name but I have feeling guides all good.

“The most beautiful campus I have ever seen!”
Reviewed November 16, 2013

Amazing architecture, free art museums, beautiful fall colors, historical gothic buildings, and of course the Skull and Cross Bones secre society building! Super cool! Would recommend visiting this campus, if just walking around.

“Yale Visitor Tour- A Must!”
Reviewed November 2, 2013

For years we have enjoyed walking through Yale and the downtown New Haven area. This week, we finally took the official tour provided by a student of Yale. What a great tour! Not only is it free but it is also very informative and interesting.

You will learn about the history, architecture and student life. If you are going to be in the area, definitely take the tour. http://www.yale.edu/visitor/tours.html

We have taken both the Yale and Harvard tours and Yale by far is much more interesting!
