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!

Princeton Tour Company is a great choice any time you visit Princeton. I have enjoyed the Ghost Tour in October (you even visit the historic and spooky cemetery in the dark). Sooo much fun! And the Trolley Tour during the holiday season is warm and cozy way to see Princeton all decked out and learn a bit of its fascinating... More

I would highly recommend this company. Jackie was our tour guide for a Saturday afternoon walking tour of Princeton. She was so enthusiastic and energized, it was contagious. There were many interesting stories, lots of history, and a real appreciation for the entire area, not just the university. We covered a great deal of ground in 2 hours. I would... More

A perfect way to see and learn about Princeton University, the town of Princeton and its most famous resident, Albert Einstein. Our guide, Tim, was interesting and informative. Our time with him brought all the history of this picturesque town and its world famous university to life. Highly recommend.

Princeton Tour Company has done a BRILLIANT job with the execution of its ghost tours. A friend and I signed up for the early tour; 6:00PM. Gerry brought us around and told us the gore of Princeton, and then Shelly took us around the cemetery for the historical part, which we enjoyed the most! We are both history fanatics and... More

This adults only walking ghost tour at 9pm is awesome! You meet at the conveniently located University Store on Nassau street. There was about 30 people in our group. Gerry was our guide and he was very animated but knew a lot of history. You get to use dowsing rods, EMF detectors, and therma-detectors to communicate with spirits. My favorite... More
