Book your Holiday Trolley Tour with Princeton Tour Company today! Trolley Tours will run for one weekend only — Saturday, December 9th & Sunday, December 10th from 10am-5pm.
Just like Princeton evolves and grows, so do these tours. This year, Princeton Tour Company completely redesigned their most popular experience with an expanded route that takes you deeper into the trove of Princeton’s historical sites, the lives of its prize-winning residents and the magnificent beauty of its hallowed grounds. Even repeat guests will be wowed and enlightened!
It begins within sight of the ginormous illuminated spruce tree festively decorated in Palmer Square. As your guide chronicles the events that shaped one of America’s most educated towns (and best Ivy League University), you’ll ride in comfort through the architecturally significant neighborhoods of Paul Robeson, Albert Einstein, Grover Cleveland, Woodrow Wilson, Betsey Stockton, Andrew Carnegie, Robert Wood Johnson, Robert Oppenheimer, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Toni Morrison, Philip Roth, Michael Graves and more. Throughout the journey, their jolly guides highlight points of interest and keep you riveted with tales of noteworthy (and notorious) Princetonians, past and present.
Your tour ends back at Palmer Square where we’re hoping you learned more than you ever thought possible in one hour!
