Enrique was a fun, well-versed tour guide. Eddie was very helpful with moving our tour time up. We especially liked hearing some of the very interesting insider info that only a current Harvard student would know. No spoilers! Great tour - would definitely recommend.

Loved the historical aspect of the architecture as well as the awe inspiring library. We wished we could have entered a couple of the buildings though. Loved the stories of the people who have walked these halls. Sara was excellent!
