THE HARVARD TOUR
In 2006, two entrepreneurial Harvard students took to Harvard Square wearing fun straw hats and “Hahvahd” t-shirts. Their mission was to create the very best tour of Harvard University for visitors and tourists. The “Hahvahd” Tour is a 70-minute student-led walking tour of America's oldest university, designed to be a funny and educational journey through Harvard's campus.

THE MIT TOUR
On the MIT tour, glimpse the buildings that compose the MIT campus and get insights into the institution that is home to some of the world's most talented innovators in the fields of math, science, and technology. The public tour of MIT is hosted by charismatic MIT students. Our dynamic and knowledgeable staff entertain and inspire with stories about MIT history and personal experience at the university they call home.

  • The Harvard Tour guide was excellent. She was a young student but was able to hold the crowd and beautifully shared with us the history of Harvard.

  • Students add a fresh perspective to the tour. Harvard and MIT are sights for the bucket list.We had nice weather which was a plus for the extensive walking.

  • It was great to visit both Universities and receive a first hand insight by the students themselves. This was not just about the History and the Property but also about the education and expectations of both Uni.

    I failed to understand by the guides have to use their natural voice and project to a large group rather than being equipped with headphones and radio for all to listen better and understand. This made it hard to follow and not miss anything and easily get lost.

    Interesting for those planning to attend one of these universities but the price not really reflect the worthiness of the tour.
