What You Can Expect
On this exclusive Harvard campus tour, meet the guide and students who will provide an inside look at college life in Cambridge and start this 1-hour walking tour of the university.
Begin at Harvard Yard, an area of just over 22 acres that’s enclosed by fences with 27 gates. Not only is it the oldest part of the campus, it’s also the center of its history and the crossroads of its modern-day campus with dorms, libraries and classrooms. Check out Old Yard with Harvard’s oldest building, Massachusetts Hall. Then head to Harvard Square near the center of Cambridge, with everything from bookstores, coffee houses, fine dining and pizza to old theaters, public art, street performers and world-class music.
Finally, if you'd like, choose to explore the Harvard Museum of Natural History, the public face of three research museums: the Museum of Comparative Zoology, the Harvard University Herbaria, and the Mineralogical & Geological Museum.
Melissa was truly OUTSTANDING! I know she tried to stay on script, but our questions kept pulling her away. She told great stories and spent some time after the tour to give us more details and suggested a great lunch place! Definitely a STRONGLY RECOMMEND from the Country of Texas! Thanks Melissa!
Very good tour.
So much fun, and informative!
Tour was excellent! Highly recommend. Perfect amount of time and information provided by current students.
Excellent tour!!! The tour guide was excellent - very knowledgeable, entertaining, etc. I highly recommend to anyone visiting Harvard campus.
This was a very informative tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable. Good job.
The tour was amazing, our tour guide Eddie was so entertaining, knowledgeable and extremely personable. I'm so glad we did it! However next time I would book just the tour and not the museum and restaurant as they were not as impressive. The only downside was we weren't able to see the inside of a lot of the buildings, which I understand as it's still an operating school and not a museum but it would have been great to be able to see the inside of the library and the freshman dining hall. Excellent tour, I highly recommend it!
It was a terrific tour. Lunch at Fire and Ice was awesome. Our tour guide, Justin, was amazing!
Our tour guide was fantastic and really brought this tour to life. It was great to learn about this fantastic institution and see some of its incredible buildings. The only slight frustration was not being able to go inside any of the buildings.
Oksana the student was very informative and lively
