Touring the Harvard campus with a student was so entertaining and educational. The university’s history is fascinating and hearing an insider’s perspective is great. Check it out!

Really interested. Beautiful campus. The tour guide was really cute and fun. The buildings are beautiful and it looks like a really great place to go to school
Nice tour
, Oct 2021
Nice tour of Harvard guided by a Harvard student. Lots of walking and history. It would have been great if the tour would include entering some of the historic buildings.
A must do.

Isa was really super. My daughter was easily able to identify with her. I think that made a huge difference. I grew up in and around Boston and still learned a ton about the school. Isa also had the best “dad jokes.”

I was happy to join the Harvard University tour and it was a great time to be there with my family. The lady guider in senior grade at Harvard University was very passionate, well prepared, and answered all our questions very well. The only thing that missed my expectation was that it would be better if I had a chance to see the inside of Harvard, for example, a library, classrooms, and so forth.
Fun, quirky, informative.
, Oct 2021
Even though it wasn’t an official Harvard tour, it sort of felt like one, the student guide gave us funny stories and insight as to the life of a Harvard student.
Nice tour of Harvard
, Oct 2021
The tour of Harvard was fun and our guide, Evelyn, did a nice job taking us through campus and answering questions about the university and its traditions. When the tour is done you’ll have the opportunity to walk around the yard and there are nice restaurants and things to do in downtown Cambridge. I think this is a must see if you are visiting the Boston area.
