A self-guided audio tour for DIY tourists and visitors with a very busy schedule.
Hit all of Princeton’s quintessential stops at your own pace, whenever it suits you, with our easy-to-use, self-guided smartphone tour. Can’t wait to get started? The tour takes just seconds to download and lasts about an hour if you decide to listen to the content and a bit longer if you decide to walk to each stop.
You’ll wind your way through the heart of Princeton University’s beautiful campus, the quaint neighborhood of Albert Einstein, and historic downtown Princeton. On campus, you’ll learn why the college came here in the first place and how it evolved from a Boys Club for pampered Southerners to what is now considered the most diverse school in the Ivy League.
Outside the gates, you’ll discover the startling reason why Albert Einstein moved to Princeton while strolling past his homes and hangouts – even his hairdresser’s house! (Yes, it took skill to achieve that signature messy coif.) Throughout the narrated tour, we weave in fun facts about famous alumni and residents. We’ll even take you to the speakeasy favored by F Scott Fitzgerald… if you promise to keep it on the down-low!
The lively, 20-stop, self-guided tour comes with valuable discounts to use throughout the day at Princeton University Store, the bent spoon, Hoagie Haven, Princeton Record Exchange, Triumph Brewing Company, Yankee Doodle Tap Room and Starbucks!
(Tours are intended for one-time, individual use and merchant discounts are only available for individual use on the day of your visit!)
