Louis was an exceptional guide who was quite entertaining. What a coincidence that he was from Southern California like us. He had answers to every question we threw at him, kept a great pace, and kept us all entertained.

So much fun to get the history of Harvard which pre-dates and has followed the history of the nation. This is not a "buildings" tour. The tour is full of stories and insights.

היה סיור מוצלח מאוד. מעניין ומרחק. חובה סיור בהרווארד. הייתי פעמיים. פעם ראשונה טיילנו לבד . ובפעם השנייה לקחנו מדריך. וזה הבדל של שמיים וארץ

Harvard tour guy was funny and gave many informations about the school. It’s definitely recommended for the first time visitors.

It was very informative and the tour guide was passionate in giving us the information.
