We were a party of 17 in town for the weekend to celebrate my parents 50th anniversary. We ranged in age from 2-75 and we all loved it. It was a fast paced tour filled with a lot of humor and so much history. The tour guide kept us fascinated with her facts and an hour passed in no time....we did not want it to end! Princeton is an adorable, historical, little town and the best way to see it and understand it is with the Princeton tour company

My boyfriend and I did the holiday trolley tour and had an incredible time. Mimi is a wealth of knowledge and keeps the entire tour funny and entertaining. It also didn't hurt that Princeton was decorated gorgeously for the holidays. It was fun, romantic, and intimate. As a Princeton local Mimi was kind enough to give us some dining suggestions after the tour too... and they did not disappoint. All in all...we had a blast and are even more in love with each other and the town of Princeton after the delightful tour.

Mimi knows her stuff...and then some! My friends and I had a wonderful time trying to keep up with all the information given to us in our holiday trolley tour. The presentation was interesting, fast-paced, funny, and all around a great time. I've done a few other tours with them and they're all interesting. Keep it up, Princeton Tour Company!

Since you've done several tours, you know we can't help but gush about this incredible town so we promise to keep it up! Our weekend public walking tours begin in April but think about returning for Pi Day on Saturday, March 14th when we celebrate Einstein's birthday and Pi Day with pie eating, pie throwing, pi recitation and Einstein look a like contests! It's a ton of fun and events are free! Thank you again for leaving a review and we'll look forward to seeing you again soon!

This tour was fantastic! Mimi, our tour guide, was so knowledgeable and entertaining. She had a really personal understanding of Princeton which made the experience very unique. I was not expecting such an entertaining and educational experience. I can’t believe I didn’t do this years ago. My kids ages 12, 10 and 8 really enjoyed it as well. I can’t wait to go on one of the walking tours this spring. Staff was professional, on time and friendly. Great experience.

I have lived not far from Princeton for quite some time but learned so much on the tour. It was right on time and our guide was great! I would highly recommend this for out of towners or locals. Add lunch and you have a perfect day in Princeton. This is the second tour for me by Princeton Tour Company, and I would definitely continue my record. Highly recommend!
