Harvard University and MIT walking tours are a must-do to understand the high quality of higher education offered here, synonymous with Boston.

These Walking Tours conducted by students offer a rich understanding of the history, kinds of courses conducted and the cultural life of the university.

The green landscape and scenes of convocations being held echo the joys of success and achievement felt by the students, parents and faculty as pupils look forward to a bright future in their careers.

What a funny and interesting afternoon spent with a Harvard student learning the history of the university and how it is run! Well worth the money and very amusing.

My tour guide is women's rugby player for Havard who dispute being in a walking boot from a sports injury gave a great tour. Learned a great deal about Havard in the hour tour that lasted almost two many due to the size of the group. The student run store at the end needs to be much bigger and have easier access to be completely safe and if you're not in good shape the pace may be too fast for you. Good value to learn about America's first University.

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.
