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!!!

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.
