Overview
For anyone thinking of attending Harvard, or for those who simply want a glimpse of life at the famous university, this 1-hour guided tour is a must.

Check out the old buildings at Harvard Yard and Harvard Square and learn about the school’s storied past. After the walking tour, explore the Harvard Museum of Natural History.
What to Expect
Harvard University doesn’t really need any introduction. The private Ivy League research university in Cambridge, MA, was established in 1636 and since that time, its history, influence and wealth have made it one of the most prestigious universities in the world. It’s listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places and it’s a U.S. National Historic Landmark District.

On this exclusive Harvard campus tour, meet the guide and students who will provide an inside look at college life in Cambridge and start this 1-hour walking tour of the university.

Begin at Harvard Yard, an area of just over 22 acres that’s enclosed by fences with 27 gates. Not only is it the oldest part of the campus, it’s also the center of its history and the crossroads of its modern-day campus with dorms, libraries and classrooms. Check out Old Yard with Harvard’s oldest building, Massachusetts Hall. Then head to Harvard Square near the center of Cambridge, with everything from bookstores, coffee houses, fine dining and pizza to old theaters, public art, street performers and world-class music.

Finally, if you'd like, choose to explore the Harvard Museum of Natural History, the public face of three research museums: the Museum of Comparative Zoology, the Harvard University Herbaria, and the Mineralogical & Geological Museum.

Harvard U

Boris was a great tour guide - funny and personable! The tour was just a sneak peek of the Harvard campus, but enough to say that I walked the yard. I could have done another hour with more sites.
