Frannie war der beste Guide den man haben kann, sehr freundlich und sympathisch, sie macht den Job wirklich gern und man merkt ihr den Spaß an den sie dabei hat. Sie hat uns vieles über Harvard erzählt und stand auch für alle Fragen zur Verfügung.

Nice walk and funny facts about Harvard! But, sometimes the guide started explaining something about a place when not everybody was there yet..

Fantastic experience, Luke is really an amazing guide, good luck with your medical school and have fun!
