Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours
Owner description: Beginning in April, we offer public tours. On Saturdays, we offer the Shameless Name Dropping Guided Walking Tours. On Sundays, we offer 5 Star Sunday Brunch Tours which cover the general history of the campus and town with specialty topics such as Architecture, Literary Greats, Hollywood, Tycoon, Einstein and more. 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! Our tours take you to all the essential sites on Princeton University campus as well as the neighborhoods of Albert Einstein, TS Eliot, F Scott Fitzgerald, Woodrow Wilson, Grover Cleveland, Robert Oppenheimer, Brooke Shields, Toni Morrison and MORE!

“Fun, fun, fun!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 December 2011

We took the holiday trolley tour of Princeton and it was fabulous! We were on the last tour of the day and our tour guide, Mimi, was as energetic and enthusiastic as could be. It's perfect for folks of any age...our group ranged in age from 78-15 and everyone LOVED it.

“Trolley tour - great fun way to learn all about Princeton!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 December 2011

I took my parents on Mimi's Princeton trolley tour the first Saturday in December and it couldn't have been better! My family has lived in NJ all our lives and had no idea how much important stuff has gone on in Princeton! Mimi is just a superb tour guide - her fun personality and her wealth of knowledge made this a great tour! And my dad was quite smitten with her Nashville drawl!! My parents live an hour away and have been telling their friends in south Jersey to drive up and check out the town with Mimi!! Highly recommend Mimi and the Princeton Walking Tour company!

“Our tour guide had a wealth of information”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 December 2011

We went on the trolley tour most recently and the ghost tour around Halloween. Both tours were fun and informative. We are from Princeton and learned so much more about Princeton. I would bring a camera along.

“Trolley Tours Rock!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 November 2011

If you have taken a tour with these guys already, you know how much fun and interesting they are. Ghost tours, walking tours and NOW trolley tours! Whether you're from Princeton or visiting this is a must do. Learn about the history, fun facts, and the everyday citizens of P-ton. Guaranteed you will be surprised at how much there is to know about Princeton, its institutions and its (past/current) citizens. So much fun!
