David, the tour guide, did a good tour of MIT. Fortunately, we were only a few participants so that areas that are not possible for large groups (eg the library) could also be entered. The tour itself shows significantly more internals, such as the laboratories or an auditorium. So it was a lot of fun. Recommended !!!!
