Quick Details

Per Participant

Walking sightseeing tour in Princeton

For 17 years running, our signature public walking tour has been the #1 Princeton attraction on TripAdvisor. Impressive, right? The New York Times, Chicago Tribune, and Washington Post have all written about it. Spoiler alert… they all say it’s awesome!

When it comes to legendary movers and shakers, the town of Princeton has an embarrassment of riches. Yet we never shy away from bragging about them non-stop during our most popular and comprehensive guided tour. On this picturesque 3-mile active and upbeat walk, you’ll learn the fascinating history of Princeton University while taking in all the must-see campus sites, including Nassau Hall, Princeton Chapel, Prospect Garden, Blair Hall and Rockefeller College. Outside the gates, we’ll visit the homes and hangouts of Albert Einstein, F Scott Fitzgerald, TS Eliot, Woodrow Wilson, Grover Cleveland, Robert Wood Johnson and even ‘80’s icon, Brooke Shields, just to name a few! Whether you like to curl up with a history book or an US Weekly, this tour has something for everyone.

This tour, begins at 116 Nassau Street inside the Princeton University Store and end in the heart of downtown close to all our favorite restaurants, pubs, cafes and ice cream shops!  (Remember, this is a colonial town so expect to go up and down steps, tackle a hill or two and cover a 3 mile route within 2 hours.)
