Mimi took us on an informative, fun-filled, jam-packed historical tour of Princeton. There wasn’t a question our group had about the university & immediate surrounding area that she wasn’t knowledgeable enough to tackle. The stories & history were quite intriguing. Highly recommended! Loved it.

A tour is only as good as the tour guide....Jennifer deserves a 10! She was knowledgeable, animated and extremely well informed. She was able to keep the entire group mesmerized. I would highly recommend this tour and Jenn as the tour guide

Princeton Tour Company offers a superb 2-hour walking tour of town and Princeton University. The guide for my tour (Jen) was enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and presented the material in a lively, fun manner. If you visit Princeton (and even if you live in Princeton), don't miss this. It's as good as the tours offered in major cities around the world.
