Just came from a wonderful long weekend trip to Princeton that included this tour. Jen was our tour guide and entertained and educated us for 2 hours. Her stories make the historical characters come to life for us and her enthusiasm for the topic was infectious. We really enjoyed her and the tour and wholeheartedly recommend it to everyone.

This tour is one of my top 10. Jen was very knowledgeable and friendly. She made the tour feel as if we were ild friends gossiping about history. I loved all of the stories she told. I will definitely comeback to take this tour again.

Jennifer was very informative and entertaining. She also made sure we stayed in the shade most of the time on a very hot day.

Thanks so much for taking time to leave a review. We like you mentioned how we're careful to keep folks comfy on the walk. Each tour is routed for the weather, group interests and making sure everyone still has energy left to explore more of Princeton after the tour! All the best and see you again soon!

Jacqui was a fabulous tour guide - enthusiastic, funny and well-informed. She really knows how to tell a story. We stopped in Princeton for a day and picked this tour for an introduction to the university and the area. It was way beyond our expectations. Highly recommended.
