This was a phenomenal experience all the way around. The guides were easy to find and incredibly friendly. Eli gave a GREAT tour filled with dramatic effect and countless laughs. The information provided on this tour was the appropriate balance of humor, entertainment and history. We even left with a local lunch recommendation that turned out to be delicious. The cost was also affordable. I would recommend anyone wanting a short and entertaining tour of the campus check out these tours!

We had a great time. The tour was both fun and interesting. Our tour guide Louisa was funny and entertaining. If you've ever wanted to take a tour of the campus this is a great one.

We did the Hahvahd tour on a chilly November day, and strongly recommend it. Our guide Vanessa was sparkling, informative & entertaining. The tour was a little over one hour and although it is only outdoors it provided a great overview of Harvard.

Great way to see the campus, the walk is funny and informative. Our guide was very nice and told us many stories about the university. The student-owned shop at the end of the tour is also interesting.

This was a great way to spend an hour on a nice Fall day in Harvard Square. Our tour guide Aubrey was awesome! She provided a good mix of historical information, pop culture and humor all while answering questions from the group. It's a walking tour around the grounds, so be sure to dress appropriately (someone in our group had on flip flops). While we made several stops, it's important to know that many of the buildings are closed to the public so you can't go inside as noted in some of the other reviews (and understandably so since there are students and professors working). But our guide was good about pointing out which buildings we could go back to after the tour for inside tours.

You won't learn everything little tidbit about Harvard, or see every portion of the campus, but you will gain a nice general education about the institution and help out current students working their way through school. And you really can't beat the $10 ticket price.
