I apologize for your inconvenience. Our team was not at our best on Sunday and a number of guests such as yourself suffered as a result. This is not the standard we like to bring our work and remain committed to offering everyone who comes to Harvard Square a quality, entertaining experience. We would happy to approve a refund submitted through viator

Our guide was very nice. It was interesting to walk around and see the buildings, and the surrounding town. I would have liked to learn a little more about Harvard, it’s history and what they’re most known for. But overall it was enjoyable
