We had a great time visiting Duke. The sports facilities are wonderful. We were there for a basketball camp, and it was a lot of fun!

“Amazing Campus”
Reviewed 17 July 2014

Since we were in the area we couldn't pass up visiting Duke University campus. It was super hot outside so we toured the campus quickly but did spend time in the amazing church. I'd recommend taking a tour of the campus anytime... but try for a day when it isn't 98 degrees.

Beautiful campus! We drove on our tour - the chapel is a must see! The gardens are beautiful. We hope to come back one day to walk the grounds.

“Amazing Experience”
Reviewed 6 July 2014 via mobile

Was lucky enough to take a "backstage" tour of Duke and the basketball gym. What a cool experience. Toured the locker rooms and all the hidden spots. Got a history lesson which was awesome. Even walked on the court as practice was starting...3 feet from coach K then he kicked us out. Very nice campus.

“Beautiful Campus”
Reviewed 4 July 2014

I love the stone buildings as they bring a unique feel to the campus. The chapel is beautiful and the organ is very impressive. It is not a huge campus so easy to maneuver.
