We loved the tour. Jennifer made us almost forget the heat (and it was hot). She has a great demeanor, presenting the information using relatable vernacular and she was so funny. Loved her. Did not think we would learn so much about Princeton but we sure did. If all of the guides are like her then this company is truly blessed. And if not, I hope a lot of tours are given by Jennifer.

This was a great and unique afternoon walking Princeton University campus. I’ve lived NJ my whole life and hadn’t been. It was lovely and our guide was very knowledgeable about the history and importance.My son is also very interested in the Revolutionary War and the guide took time to answer his questions about battles fought centuries ago on campus. (Bonus - you walk to the old residence of Albert Einstein.. awesome)

Princeton Tour Company offers a superb 2-hour walking tour of town and Princeton University. The guide for my tour (Jen) was enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and presented the material in a lively, fun manner. If you visit Princeton (and even if you live in Princeton), don't miss this. It's as good as the tours offered in major cities around the world.

What a rare combination: learning history while having a blast doing so. The tour was AMAZING! Not too physically demanding. Friendly for all ages. Lots of information presented in an easy to understand/humor driven way. Our tour guide was great - she knew how to explain everything and engage the crowd. Would defiantly book another tour with them :)

We were fortunate to book seats and surprise our mothers with a ride on the last Princeton Holiday tour of the season. We received a warm welcome from Mike who met us in the YCMA parking lot. Shawn pulled up with a very well maintained trolley and Mimi welcomed us aboard. Mimi is an awesome tour guide. She had a great way conveying the history in an entertaining manner. We learned so much about Princeton's famous and not so famous residents and landmarks.....and Mimi shared some juicy tidbits too! Highly recommend!!

Thank you so much for leaving a review for our Holiday Trolley Tour! We loved being able to offer it again this year! Our public walking tour schedule will begin in April so we hope to see you return to Princeton and enjoy all the shops, restaurants and art installations provided by the University. Again, thank you for leaving a review - people really read them and it helps our business more than you know!

We hired the Princeton Tour Company for a private walking tour of Princeton to entertain wedding guests staying at the Nassau Inn. Each of them spoke about it being one of the highlights of the weekend. They thoroughly enjoyed tour guide, Jennifer. According to our guests she was fun, knowledgeable and enthusiastic. They couldn't stop talking about how much they learned.

This should be the #1 attraction in Princeton. If possible, take one of their tours.

I decided to take my high school son to Princeton and booked the tour in hopes that he may like it enough to apply. Well, the tour was so amazing, we both learned so much and Jacquie (our guide) was absolutely amazing. As a result, my son is super motivated to get in Princeton university and I can confidently say it’s because of this awesome tour and our astonishing guide. Highly recommended wether you are just visiting or want to explore options with a child.

it was Halloween eve. We were looking forward to the tour, my friend and I. We arrived and our tour guide, I forget her name but she was a blonde lady. She had an over the top personality which made the entire tour fun. As they say people make the place the tour guide makes the experience. She was awesome, great personality, incredibly informative, and fun. One VIP experience was she got us in to the cemetery at night which is locked up otherwise I will give this 10 stars if I could. Got to see Aaron burr’s tomb, tulanes tomb as in Tulane university and learned the history behind the Babe Ruth bar. We got to use these tandem sticks that let you speak with spirits or I’ve done that can detect temperatures of spirits walking around.

Mimi took us on an informative, fun-filled, jam-packed historical tour of Princeton. There wasn’t a question our group had about the university & immediate surrounding area that she wasn’t knowledgeable enough to tackle. The stories & history were quite intriguing. Highly recommended! Loved it.

My parents were dropping us off at Newark Liberty for a trip to Europe and we decided to take a tour of Princeton on our way up from Delaware. We were lucky enough to get Jen as our guide. She was informative and also kept us all laughing. It was a lovely day and she pointed out sites that were not on the tour, but that were worth a visit another time. It was well worth our time and was great value for the money. When the tour was done, we asked Jen where we might find an ice cream place and she walked us over to her favorite one. Thanks so much for the education and the ice cream!

Thank you so much for leaving a review! It sounds like you might be returning to Princeton so I thought I'd mention visiting Princeton in the summer is so much fun! Every Saturday from Noon - 2p there is live musical performances on Palmer Square! Our tours include tons of discounts to places like the bent spoon, Triumph Brewing Company, Princeton Record Exchange, the U-Store and more! If you decide to stay overnight, consider staying at The Peacock Inn or the Nassau Inn so you'll be in walking distance of tons of restaurants, shops, taverns and our "quintessentially Princeton" movie house. Again, thank you for leaving a review and please reach out if you do return to Princeton! We'd love to help you explore the town even more!
