Our (should be) Trademarked “Quintessentially Princeton” Team Building Experience

  • This one of a kind group experience was featured in Small Meetings Magazine, Mid-Atlantic Magazine and Meeting Planners International. Think of this as our 5 Star Shameless Name Dropping Tour with mini-competitions throughout the event. (Yes, there will be prizes!)
  • 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!

#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!

– Sandra L.

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.
