This fun tour is rich in history, gossip, and Einstein. The walking tour includes part of the University campus, a walk through Woodrow Wilson's and Albert Einstein's old neighborhoods, some notable spots downtown, and much more. The trolley tour in November-December ventures farther to the Institute for Advanced Study and the charming residential areas. Don't be surprised if you meet... More

I took the Ghost Tour in October and found it quite interesting. The history and stories were great. There is a ghost hunting portion of the tour. I am a skeptic, so I viewed that as sort of silly and fun. There is some walking involved and the tour is rain or shine. If it is rainy, bring an umbrella... More

This very cool Southern mama from Nashville takes you around Princeton University and the town itself with very cool little anecdotes and stories told in addition to the history of the place in a cute southern accent. She stops and says hi to people on the way including "Big fat nobodies", as she would say, as well as world class... More

The guided walking tour was easily one of the best tour experiences I have ever had. Princeton is an amazing university and town with a rich historical background that Mimi tries very successfully to bring to life. She brings you to the main parts of the campus, historically important houses, and the nearby neighborhood properties that belong to some of... More

Mimi's excellent reputation is well deserved! A sparkling storyteller, Mimi made us feel at home among the elite catalysts in culture and academics. My family very much enjoyed the quality of national and local history and supplemented 'fun gossip', all of which was delivered with exuberance. All that to say, Mimi delivers a warm welcome to Princeton in spades!

I took a personal group tour with Mimi on March 15th and had a fabulous time! Her depth of knowledge and enthusiasm was incredible. She even had her Mom tell us some "shameless name-dropping" stories that I never knew! I have visited Princeton numerous times and thought I knew the place. Well, I will just have to come back again... More

Mimi is an amazing tour guide, and we are very glad we went on this tour. Mimi has a love of the history of Princeton, and conveys it in an entertaining and enjoyable manner. I learned the answers to questions I'd never have thought to ask, and was glad I did. Highly recommended!

I teach the Gifted & Talented Program at a middle School. For the last three years, I have booked tours of Princeton with the Princeton Tour Company and have loved every one!! Mimi brings such excitement and love that it's infectious, not that Princeton isn't by itself! Mimi has such knowledge that she draws the students in and keeps them... More
