“Not the most interesting tour we did”

Harvard Historical Walking Tour
Ranked #3 of 11 Tours in Cambridge
Attraction details
Reviewed September 24, 2018

We were a little disappointed with this tour, not much information about the campus, and you dont get to go inside some of the buildings. I know this is a working university but i would have liked to see inside the amazing library, but do understand how impractical it was.

We felt that we could have used one of the free walking tour guides and got as much from the experience.

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.

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