Interesting to know the history of MIT and essential to take a tour to know its history and know what you are seeing. Since each building has its history and it can be easy to miss an important building. Very good experience, the guides are very informed, friendly and serious and interested in answering any questions. The duration of the tour is sufficient and the value is appropriate.

David, the tour guide, did a good tour of MIT. Fortunately, we were only a few participants so that areas that are not possible for large groups (eg the library) could also be entered. The tour itself shows significantly more internals, such as the laboratories or an auditorium. So it was a lot of fun. Recommended !!!!
