Sally was an amazing tour guide. Not only did she have a good understanding of the history of Harvard; but she also gave us a peek into what student life is like at Harvard. She love and pride for her school was quite infectious! She also gave funny little antidotes about her personal journey and was very personable. She made our morning tour very enjoyable.

Emma was engaging, charismatic and provided her own authentic account of the university past and present. Easy to do and interesting facts.

Although the yards at harvard were closed due to an event for alumni, Lorenzo our guide made it a great experience!

Really good tour even if we were not able to visit the harvard yard. The guide (Baptista? I think) was really nice!

Guide (Bautista) was top! The only pity was that we could not enter the campus as it was closed.
