    My girlfriend and I had a great time touring Harvard! Mike was our tour guide and he was great at offering history and just being funny. Wish we could have went inside one of the buildings but still a fun time overall!

    My family and I loved the tour of Harvard. Becky was our tour guide. She was entering her senior year as a neuroscience major. She could give of great insights into both the history of Harvard as well as today’s university culture.

    I liked the tour! Our Harvard guide was great, fun and interesting though we did not visit any building inside. The guide for MIT was not so great and we could not see the done because there were graduates celebration.

    So glad you loved Harvard! I'm sorry that the MIT tour was spoiled by graduation blocking the Killian Court area. Luckily it's such an open campus they hardly closed anything else, though!

    We did the Harvard and MIT tours back-to-back. Both tours led by enthusiastic students (the Harvard one being rather quirky!). Although we enjoyed the visits, we were disappointed that we didn't get inside any of the Harvard buildings - it was just a walk around...More

    Sorry to hear you didn't enjoy the Harvard experience as much as MIT. We'd love to show you inside the buildings but unfortunately Harvard isn't as open a campus as MIT and no tours are allowed to go inside spaces. Thanks so much for joining...More
