We were with a tour group walking amongst these amazing buildings of several colleges that make up this town. It was very interesting to see where some very truly gifted people have been educated here. Almost made you want to go back to school!

About 2 hours. It depends on which company is giving the tour and how much of town they include, but they usually don't take all day. (The tour I give people when they visit takes about three, but we're young and like... More
