Our Trademarked “Quintessentially Princeton” Team Building Experience

  • This one-of-a-kind experience is  designed to be entertaining, interactive and just the right amount of COMPETITIVE!  Teams are assigned at the beginning of the event.  As the group walks through Princeton campus, learning the fascinating history, the tour guide spontaneously creates mini competitions related to the content.  (Don’t worry, you don’t have to be Ivy grad to win the competition!  Sometimes it’s a clever multiple choice question and other stops require a myriad of activities requiring photo and video challenges.
  • These events are not canned  – they are customized for each company, industry and group participants.  Our guides research your company’s history and create customized content along with little known facts about Princeton!  (Did you know a Princeton professor invented the Olympics?  TRUE!  Did you know Princeton has more Nobel Prize Winners than any other 2 square miles on earth?  TRUE! ….. we’re competitive like that!)
  • These events can begin and end at iconic Princeton restaurants …….. like F  Scott Fitzgerald’s speakeasy or the favorite hang out of Woodrow Wilson, Grover Cleveland and JFK or the pub where Einstein carved his initials.  You get it ….. these events deserve that trademark!

Princeton Revolutionary Pub Crawl

We get it …. you’re hearing about the Semiquincentennial celebration but just need someone to spell out why it’s such a big deal for Princeton.

Would your group have fun being led through real revolutionary sites by fife and drum?  TOTALLY!

Would your group have fun hearing professional tour guides break down the inside story of Princeton’s role in taking down the British?  FOR SURE!

Would your group have fun meeting time traveling patriots as they return to PrinceTown to share first hand accounts of what it was like to form our nation.  YOU GET WHERE WE’RE HEADED WITH THIS!

Do you want to do all this while wearing a complimentary Tricorn hat?  FULL STOP, THIS IS GOING TO BE A BLAST!

While visiting various pubs, you’ll also see Aaron Burr Jr.’s childhood home, where Alexander Hamilton shot that famous cannonball, Princeton’s Tea Party (you read that right, Princeton heard about the Boston moment and put their own spin on it), the monument of a feisty relative of Reese Witherspoon, the nation’s first Capitol, Capital and White House! (you read that right too.  Princeton really was the first official Capitol, Capital and White House!)

We find our troops prize their independence so drinks and snacks are not included in the price …. don’t worry, we visit a variety of spots so even our most refined recruits will be happy with the selection of regional libations and sundries!

Are you worried we might be disrupting other diners during the event?  DON’T!    We use our whisper quality wireless audio system during our pub crawls.  Onlookers on the route and inside establishments will not be able to hear your commanding guide.

$45pp – minimum 10 guests

#1 Tour in Princeton on TripAdvisor

Informative and entertaining trolley tour!

This was a fun way to spend an hour. The tour guide was sooooo entertaining, enthusiastic and knowledgeable...the neighborhoods were beautiful...we live locally and knew NONE of the stories or facts learned during the tour. Very easy to book and boarding was prompt and organized. Would consider other tours after enjoying this one so much.

Loved the Shameless Name Dropping Walking Tour

This tour is a must for first time Princeton visitors. Easily walk through highlights of university and then local neighborhoods. Tim’s story telling around the history, architecture and famous students and/or residents was captivating and fun! Even if you’ve visited Princeton before, don’t miss this tour!!!

– Pat C.
Great Tour!

We had a great time learning about Princeton, the city we just moved to. Tim, our tour guide, did a very good job telling us stories about influential people in Princeton, including his favorite person of all: Albert Einstein. Thank you!

Fabulous way to name-drop in Princeton!

Jen was terrific! From the minute we started til the end of the tour, she really knew her stuff. My husband (who attended Princeton) was really impressed with her knowledge of history and how to relate if to the present day. Best name-dropping tour ever! Highly recommend this walk for anyone interested in this area.
