On Saturdays, we offer the Shameless Name Dropping Guided Walking Tour to the general public in the spring and fall. In October, we offer ghost tours and ghost hunts where guests use real ghost hunting equipment to prove Princeton is haunted. During wintertime holidays, we offer trolley tours of Princeton. Corporate teams and private groups can enjoy our custom tours, bus tours, scavenger hunts and convention speakers year round. Our tours are rated the #1 Activity on TripAdvisor, New York Times and Small Meetings Magazine. We're rated the #1 northeastern tour company by AAA Magazine. Our professional tour guides use IPads to help connect the historical dots while combining facts and just enough folklore to make everyone feel like a bonafide local! Princeton was the nation's first capitol? The last train robbery occurred in Princeton? Einstein's brain was stolen? Indiana Jones grew up in Princeton and dated the real Nancy Drew? All true and that's not the good stuff! Our tours take you to all the essential sites on Princeton University campus as well as the neighborhoods of Albert Einstein, TS Eliot, F Scott Fitzgerald, Woodrow Wilson, Grover Cleveland, Robert Oppenheimer, Brooke Shields, Toni Morrison and MORE!

I live in Princeton, but our group of 30 was visiting the Princeton area from all over the world for a reunion. My goal was to find a real Princeton experience for my colleagues. In an hour and a half, tour leader Mimi provided the most interesting, fact (and tradition) filled tour any of us could imagine. Even after 40... More

Had the opportunity to have a tour with a group to which I belong. It was led by Mimi, who is quite a character, and I mean that only in the most positive of ways!!! She made the tour of the Princeton Campus interesting and funny. We were lucky enough afterwards to have her join us, on the bus that... More

We had a small group doing the private tour. Jacqui Alexander knew the ins & outs of the area & had great insights into Princeton. You can tell she was born & raised in Princeton & loves the town. She's young enough to connect well and keep it fun for the younger kids in our group, but knowledgeable enough to... More

We just did a fascinating and fun tour of the Princeton cemetery with Mimi. She knew how to tailor her talk for this group and we had a great time and learned so much about Princeton history. Can't wait to do one of Mimi's other tours.

The tour was fascinating and total pleasure. I have done this tour before but I learned new information and came away with fresh insights. Mimi is flexible and responds to the interests and needs of each group. I can't wait to do Mimi's other Princeton tours.

Mimi did a great (and very entertaining) job guiding our group of adult English language students not only through the cemetery, but through Princeton's history.

I did a group tour of the Princeton Cemetery with Mimi, and she had us enthralled. She adapted her talk to accommodate the many English language learners in the group and still gave a highly informative and entertaining tour for all. I've lived in Princeton for over 30 years and still learned so many new pieces of information, not just... More

Jacqui Alexander does a fantastic active senior field trip. She keeps on mind the pace level everyone wants. Although she is (probably) in her late 20's, it is easy to relate to her super smart tour info and energy during the tour!

Our 8th grade class just finished an amazing Princeton Tour Company tour with Tim as our guide. Tim took our class to the essential sites of Princeton University and Einstein. His knowledge was impeccable and we loved his focus on "Asking the question why" in the classroom (and life). Tim has strong relationships with shop owners whose family members remember... More
