It was a fascinating tour, and the guide's energy and bubbly personality made it even better. I would highly recommend the tour to family and friends.

I have taken the Princeton Tour (both the walking and the bus tour) five times now as it is fantastic for when we have guests in town. It is consistently brilliant with the fascinating facts about Princeton and the little stories about Einstein and the university rituals. If you are visiting Princeton you must take this tour.

We did a tour with Mimi in August of 2013, i didn't get a chance to review right after. Almost a year later and our boys still remember how she let them say a few things into the microphone and jokes she made and how interesting the walking tour was for all of us! She is a pleasure and knows... More

Mimi is the kind of person you'd want to have coffee with. You'll feel like you've been invited to the best parties in Princeton for years.

I heard good things about the tours, especially the walking tours where it could be done at your own pace. I paid for the walking tour, downloaded the information to my phone, then set off to explore Princeton. There is supposed to be an audio portion that goes with the tour. As I toured, with every attempt to get access... More

We haven't had an audio tour for purchase for several months.

We're happy to refund your $15 since you weren't able to access the content! Our goal is for everyone to have a... More

I've been to Princeton a few times, but never experienced it like this. Mimi knows everything there is to know about the town. Her tour was interesting and she has a great sense of humor. Just make sure you wear good walking shoes!

Mimi is the best. Your head will be spinning with all the information she crams into the two-hour walking tour of Princeton--lots of history and trivia. And, it is all delivered with style and a sense-of-humor that keeps one smiling. The two hours fly by. Don't miss this tour. I'm going back with my husband, who just loves history and,... More
