Full description
Enjoy this 90-minute, private tour of Harvard University for you and your guests! The tour is completely customizable to fit your group’s needs. Throughout this tour, your informative guide – a current university student – will offer a unique perspective of college life at the famed institution, of which 44 current and former faculty members are Nobel laureates.

Head to the 25-acre (10-hectare) Harvard Yard, the oldest section of the university, and view the brick facades of the dormitories, libraries and classrooms. Your guide will point out Old Yard, including Harvard’s oldest standing building – Massachusetts Hall, constructed in 1720 – as well as New Yard. See historical edifices like Memorial Hall, Sever Hall, the Widener Library and the Harvard Lampoon, as well as the statue of John Harvard – the university’s founder.

As you tour the grounds, be entertained by your guide’s stories and Harvard lore – partly scripted and partly shared from personal experience. Learn about the most famous people that attended Harvard, hear historical anecdotes and get an insider’s view on current college life. After a stop at the Plaza, Winthrop Park and Mt Auburn Street in Harvard Square, complete your tour at the Harvard Cooperative Society (COOP), the University’s official bookstore.
