    I went on this tour with a friend on the day we were seeing "Hamilton" - we could not have been better prepared for the show! Our guide Jeremy was fun and knowledgeable about Alexander Hamilton and his contemporaries as well as about NYC in general. There were only three of us on the tour so we were able to ask Jeremey as many questions as we wanted. He even rerouted the tour so that we finished at the Farunces Tavern where my friend and I had dinner reservations.

    I highly recommend this tour and Jeremy!

    Great tour through the historic parts of lower Manhattan. Fascinating to see how the colonial-era New York blends in seamlessly with the modern Financial District.
