So FUN and educational! Molly, a Brit studying engineering, was a fabulous guide. It was an incredibly hot day and she guided the group to shady spots whenever possible. She was full of fun facts and historical information, many told in fun anecdotal way so that the 70 minutes flew by. We learned about how Harvard U began, who Harvard was, how women were treated as students then and now, superstitions and finally, about Primal Scream!

Nice introduction to Harvard. Guided tour of the central area. Our guide Brandon was great and had a lot to say about college life and studying at Harvard.

Very interesting tour. The tour guide even held the tour on his own 19th birthday.

Very interesting facts on the tour and super helpful and lovely guide!

Excellent tour with an interesting instructor. We had a great time!
