Lots of Information!

Our "Hamilton" was excellent and shared a lot of information about the man and his life and the politics of the time and what it was like, generally, for folks that lived in NYC in Alexander Hamilton's day. We had a mix of ages in our group and he engaged us all. Fun times!

Great tour. Informative and fun. It was all adults on my tour, but I will book again and bring nephews who are studying American history in school.

This tour was amazing, and the best part is that it is given by an actor playing Alexander Hamilton. His depth of knowledge was admirable. He answered all my questions as I felt like I was talking to a Founding Father. He explained how New York played a key role in the creation of America and how Hamilton influenced New York and America. We visited about 20 places which cover almost every scene in the musical. The wireless headsets were a great bonus as I could control the volume and not miss a word. I did not realize how important a headset was but NYC is loud, my hearing is not what it used to be. I would highly recommend this tour to history buffs, like myself, or for families who would get a kick out of meeting Alexander Hamilton. If you see the musical you should take this tour to complete the Hamilton experience. I even got to keep the headset as a gift.
