Attraction details
Owner description: 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 thought I knew Princeton after working at the University for over 20 years. Then the Dept. sponsored a walking tour for the Staff. And we discovered a whole new list of marvels, including stops along Nassau St. for sweets and coffee. For jaded professionals like ourselves, it was our favorite outings!

Carefully researched insights into the eccentricities of Princeton. Although a migrant to Princeton from the midwest, Mimi has made this her home and enhanced it.

It was a cold day in Princeton, but the guide on the TrolleyTour really warmed us up with her knowledge and interesting anecdotes as we travelled around the town. I am sure we saw much more than we would have otherwise and her information on Einstein, his two houses and workplace were inspiring.And I had never heard of a 'divorce... More

Wonderful tour with an A+ guide. When it was over, our group of 7 wanted to hop right back on the trolley bus and take it all over again. You will learn things you never ever knew before, despite living in the area for 20 years - and you'll have plenty of laughs along the way. Trolley tour only runs... More

I have been on two tours with Princeton Tour Company, and both have been both informative and fun! She had researched the town carefully and knows the interesting facts -- but has also taken the time to find out the stories about the people in Princeton that make the town and its people come alive. I have been living here... More
