The Princeton walking tour was fantastic! The tour guide Kevin was very friendly and knowledgeable! Starting from the battle monument and ending at Princeton University and pointing out several famous homes and sights along the way and very helpful with taking pictures as well!

I went on this tour summer 2019 while in town visiting family. Kevin is a great tour guide! I learned so much about the neighborhoods and streets surrounding the University. Kevin was able to answer all the questions people had, and even offered some neat fun facts! I will be returning to Princeton this summer and already booked my tour!
