  • Jake was great! highly recommend..

  • Ryan is a funny and informative guy. He gave a lot of interesting stories and told in a funny way. I liked this tour.

  • Delightful Harvard senior guide really made for an insightful, amusing and informative tour. Lots of fun!!!
    One suggestion...
    We did not know you got a free Hahvahd tour if you do a Duck Tour and so paid for this. Just a heads-up.

  • My only suggestion might be to better control people who try to join the tour without paying for it. Our guide did say something finally but it did get a bit annoying for those of us who planned and paid for our tour. That is our only negative. We loved it and had a great time! Guide was very good and we learned a lot.

  • It was so fun and entertaining. My sophomore daughter also enjoyed it. Jake was the best!!!! Very reasonable for what we got...

  • very amusing and informative

  • Had a great day touring Harvard. The guide was good except he didn't seem to know much about Weld Hall. I am a Weld and wanted to learn more about the start of Harvard and the Weld involvement.

  • Fun tour!

  • It was a perfect tour. Our tour guide was Liz, a psychologist student explained very well about the importance of that place. We were a group of four from India for 2.30 batch.
    She was very enthusiastic and conveyed the information interestingly.
    All the best to you Liz.

  • Great tour!
