    Our guide was Rafid, an extremely polite and fun Harvard student. He shared great things about Harvard, from its founding to the here and now. He took us around the campus and showed us many different places. His English was very easy to understand and he spoke in a way that was perfectly understood. Awesome experience and what was amazing was that he did the tour on his own birthday!

    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!

    The tour was great, especially the guide. Many interesting insights into this well-known university and life in it. Unfortunately everything was outside, it was not possible to visit the inside. A rip off was the parking garage recommended by Get your Guide. That was more expensive than the whole tour, around USD 40 for two hours. It is best to check beforehand whether there are alternatives.
