Whether your interest is finding the haunts of Janet Evanovich\'s popular heroine, tracking the fight for American Independence through the city\'s streets, or learning about our industrial past, we have a tour for you!

Look around our site and if you don\'t see exactly what you are looking for, ask. Chances are we\'ve given a tour on your preferred topic before and would be happy to do so again.

Reservations requested, but we aim to please

While we recommend arranging your tour with us in advance, we certainly understand when circumstances dictate a little extra flexibility.

Today, we took a call for tour that we were able to accommodate with just 10 minutes notice. Our guests from Germany took a chance side trip to Trenton as they wind down their US tour. Once here, they realized TrenTours was available to help them discover Stephanie Plum’s Trenton and gave us a call.

Call or email us to arrange your tour!

A little history sets the scene for a good read.

Author Edward Bloor and a couple of his friends took a tour of Trenton’s industrial sites with us in the spring of 2013. All three men were originally from Trenton and Ed was doing some research for this book.

You can read more about the book here, or order an e-version here.

No time like the present to visit our past

The Times of Trenton ran an article yesterday reporting on a renewed attempt to promote heritage tourism in the city.

We’re supportive, of course. But you don’t have to wait for the City and the Trenton Downtown Association to develop their signage and self-guided tours. Call or email us.

In the past month, we’ve hosted a visitor from the Netherlands seeking out the haunts of Stephanie Plum; helped a group of friends who grew up in the area connect the dots on Trenton’s industrial past; and explained baseball, tomato pies and Trenton history with Linda Bentley, an amazing Australian woman who is visiting all 50 states in 50 weeks.

Give us a call and get in on the fun.

Stephanie’s favorite


When Janet Evanovich toured Trenton with NPR reporter Pam Fessler in June of 2010, we stopped at Italian Peoples Bakery on Butler Street. Janet was disappoionted that they had sold out of their Boston Cream donuts before we arrived.
