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!

The holiday Christmas trolley tour is the best attraction going in Princeton. Mimi our guide is so entertaining, extremely knowledgable and beautiful as well. We learned so much and we were in awe over the history of this sophisticated little town. Doing it again next year with more family. My Christmas present to everyone! I guess I will buy them...

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

If your are in Princeton around Christmas time, don't miss the trolley tour! It is quite interesting to learn so many facts that I did not know about Princeton. Mimi is a great guide, she did a great job making the tour enjoyable! She is so funny!

Yes, for all of you that may think a tour of Princeton would be dull, just think again! Tourguide, Miss Mimi, is a Southern transplant to this beautiful town of knowledge and history who peppers her talk with juicy tid bits of local lore, gossip and intrigue. Thank you for a wonderful day!

If you come to Princeton and don't take Mimi Omiecinski's tour, you have not lived. She has a wicked sense of humor and will make you laugh while you take in the sights, facts, interesting personages, etc. Having done more than one of her tours and having done other tours, I assure you: if you have guests in town and...

My husband and I live very near Princeton, but thought it might be fun to take a walking tour to learn more about it. We had a great time! Mimi was energetic and fun, all the while giving us in-depth info on the town. We laughed the whole time. Seriously one of the best walking tours we have ever taken….... More

Thank you, Mimi, for a terrific experience for my family and our visitors from San Francisco! Loved every minute, learned so much. The tour was perfectly paced and covered even more than we could have asked. We'd recommend to anyone who is visiting the area.

The tour of Princeton and the campus was a winner event for myself and partner. Our tour guide, Mimi gave us so much information about the campus and community that when the tour was over, we were ready to sign up for another tour. She made a cold dreary, October day into a knowledgeable and educational event. This was a... More
