Explore two of the best universities in the world with this guided tour of MIT and Harvard. You'll stroll through each campus just like a prestigious Ivy League student.
MIT & Harvard Tour
At the selected time we'll meet at the Harvard subway stop, and begin the campus tour with a university student guide. We'll start with the John Harvard statue, who was the university's first benefactor. Did you know that students tend to touch the statue's foot for good luck?
From there we'll walk to the Memorial Hall and the Widener Library, the largest on campus, which contains over three million books. We'll discover some of the student traditions while we head to the Harvard Lampoon, the offices of the student magazine. Many former US presidents wrote in the publication, can you guess who?
After an hour and 10 minutes, we'll leave the guide and finish the tour at Winthrop Park. Then you'll have to cross the Harvard bridge to reach the other side of Cambridge, where the best technology university, MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology), is located.
The guide will be waiting for you at Kendall Square at the time you selected. They will take you to the Strata Centre, a colourful deconstructed building, and the Green Building, one of the tallest structures on campus. This is where some of the most famous astronauts studied!
Next, we'll stop in front of the Great Dome to find out about campus life at MIT, and then head towards Lobby 7. Did you know that MIT students created traffic laws for the Infinite Corridor that runs from east to west because of the endless flow of students?
Here we'll end the tour after one hour and 10 minutes.
