“A fantastic experience”

I thoroughly enjoyed the Harvard Historical Walking tour. Our guide Daniel was very knowledgeable and quite funny. The tour is a marvelous way to learn more about the history of the school. I also loved how the tour guides can give insight into what campus life is really like. At one point during the tour, we all sat on the steps where commencement would be held the following week. It was really magical. The tour ends off in the gift shop which was great because I finally found the perfect Harvard sweater! Thanks Daniel for a great tour! Congratulations on finishing law school.

Easy access from the T. Excellent tour given by undergraduate students. It was freezing so my group was small but they said they usually max out at 35. You get a lot of fact about the school and campus and we were able to pick the guides brain for a while. I was only in Boston 3 days but we squeezed this in and it was worth it.

We were visiting Harvard and decided to take the Historical Walking Tour on impulse. It was a great decision and we were treated to a fantastic hour of stories, information and history from 'Betsy' about he university. After a quick canter round the campus and surrounding area we left far more enlightened about the famous establishment. A good and lighthearted way to see Harvard.

They were run by students so they provided a brief over view. The group was a little large for the guide to handle. It was insightful but brief with more information on courses offered or the cost is needed. This is interesting to foreign visitors.
