Great walking tour

This was a wonderful way to learn the truth about Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr. The guide knew so much information! I would go on other tours with them again!

Patriot Tours: Hamilton and Burr Walking Tour is very interesting and informative. If you really want to know the true history of Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr, I would strongly recommend this tour. I would not recommend the tour for very young children, however because some of the information shared on the tour involves adult subject matter, such as, talk... More

My sister and I took a week long Revolutionary War themed trip to NYC. As enthusiastic fans of both "Hamilton" and AMC's wonderful "Turn", we were very interested in seeing all the real places where the events depicted actually unfolded. I knew we'd have a lot of trouble finding some of the more obscure locations on our own in the... More

My husband and I took the Revolutionary War walking tour the morning after seeing "Hamilton" and we're so glad we did. Understanding those historic times make us better stewards of the American dream today. It is hard to imagine what life must have been like and the sacrifices that were made to make America what it is today but Karen... More

Fabulous and insightful experience for tourists and New Yorkers alike. Relatively informal, the tour is like a laid back talk and walk among friends. Yet the host of Patriot Tours is teeming with historical facts, anecdotes, and implications that will fascinate both history buffs and even those with just a casual interest. Plus, based on the two tours I have... More

I attended the Hamilton and Burr tour in Lower Manhattan as part of a couples weekend. I got the that Karen is very passionate and knowledgeable about the Revolutionary War period, but not about Hamilton or Burr. Her stories were often about other people, and there was no narrative about the lives of the tour's alleged topics. Instead, anecdotes about... More

My wife and I were in town to see "Hamilton" the musical and have been reading the biography from Ron Chernow that inspired Miranda to write the musical. We thought it would be a treat to see some of the sights first hand and I'm very glad we did. Karen was very informative, happily answered every question and was helpful... More

Great tour by Karen. We were late arriving due to getting stuck on a train. Called Karen and she was so kind, waited for us and helped us with directions. It is obvious she has researched her tours and really knows what she is talking about, not just pointing out the typical tourist spots. Gave us background information, pointed out... More

My fiancee took me to this as an engagement gift on the Hamilton walking tour! Karen was incredible, well knowledged, and she brought the history to life in the modern buildings on the tour. It was well placed, with lots of stops and amazing sights the entire way. It was well worth the money and if given the opportunity, I... More
