Ronia, recent graduate, was superb — exuding energy, effortless enthusiasm, experience and dedication — a pleasure.

If you’re in Boston and have about 90 minutes a must see-hear and experience is the walking tour of this awesome university. Our tour guide, Mike a junior from the great state ND was funny, witty, and affable. I had one idea about Harvard being this stuffy uptight place and left with a better perspective of this university and it’s rich history that’s tied to the American experience. Mike thank you for making the experience informative.

Was fantastic to get to walk the grounds with a student and hear about the history, the buildings and student life. I would recommend this walking tour. Easy access from the T station!

One of my wife's request was to do the Harvard tour. We arrived about 30 minutes before our tour time. First come first served as there is a maximum amount of people for each tour and it was very popular. Our group was still large. I would guess there had to have been around 30 people in our group.

Our tour guide was Will, a student at Harvard. The tour is a historical one and not one to show you all the buildings and areas but you can always go see those on your own before or after the tour. Will was very knowledgeable and provided clear information. I wanted to give Will a tip after the tour but others were speaking to Will and my wife was urging me to get going as we had to get ready for a flight out of Logan airport and we still had to get a gift from the Harvard store for our kids. After the tour, it was a little difficult finding the large Harvard store but boy was it a large store with multiple floors. There is also a much smaller Coop store but the larger Coop store has so much more to offer. I will tell you the small sized clothing is more like a medium so nothing would fit my daughter in University. For some clothing, they didn't have women specific sizing so the unisex small was way too big unless you were at least 5'5" tall and at least 140 pounds. I was hoping to get her a Harvard Law sweater.
