Know More about this tour

This historical tour begins at theCity Hall Park entrance atBroadway and Park Place. Meet and greet the guide and the rest of the small group, then get ready to explore the city in search of one of America's founding fathers Alexander Hamilton.

Actually, this is a journey through the lives of two men: Hamilton and Aaron Burr,the third vice president of the United States. Get to know them through their own words, the views of the people around them, and the events of the times.

On this 2.5-hour walking tour, experience New York City before, during, and after the American Revolution. A city torn apart, burned, rebuilt, and on its way to becoming the greatest financial center in the world. But getting there would take it through some of the nastiest political debate the state and nation had ever known.

Visit some of the oldest remaining historic sites in New York City, like St. Pauls Chapel, the oldest-surviving church building in Manhattan; Federal Hall, the first capitol building of the United States; and the graveyard at Trinity Church. Step into the world of Hamilton and Burr, visit the sites that were part of their daily lives, and get to know the people around them. Follow their paths as they lead to that fateful day in 1804 at Weehawken, New Jersey whenBurr fatally shoots Hamilton, his long-time political antagonist.

See original, uncensored documents from the time period including excerpts from the letters between Hamilton and Burr. Get to know these two extraordinary men as they really were the truth is considerably more fascinating than the stories most people have grown up believing.

The tour ends at Trinity Church, located at Broadway and Wall Street.

  • Karen was a perfect tour guide! She has so much knowledge and presents it very well. We will be back for more of her tours for sure!

  • Very informative. Karen is an extremely knowledgable guide and corrects many of the falsehoods about Hamilton and Burr that are widely known to the public. IT has a good pace, but 3 hours, vice 2.5 may be more appropriate. An excellent segway to anyone going to see the play HAMILTON, in the future.

  • Fabulous! I learned so much about the history of this time, of NYC, and Burr and Hamilton. I have been to NYC many times and this tour took me to places I never even know existed. Well worth the money!

  • Tour guide was very good and informative, she definitely knew her stuff and had lots of information to share. You definitely get to see many of the important spots along the tour. Only thing I would change is the length does get a bit long especially when it is continuous outside in full sun. More places to sit while listening would have been appreciated by hour 2.5 it was getting uncomfortable!

  • Karen was extremely knowledgeable and informative. We were lucky to have a small group on the day we were there. It was an easy walk with several stops for discussion of history and politics of the time period. We got more information than just walking around ourselves and Karen provided a lot of unusual facts and add ons which really made the tour enjoyable. She also answered any questions we had and happy to add more color to the history.

  • This tour with Karen was the highlight of our trip. I worried that a tour would be a repeat of the basics that every Hamilton fan already knows. Not the case! Karen is a historian, and her passion and knowledge for the era had me leaning in for every story she would share. I learned so much!

  • It was fabulous! Karen was an amazing tour gude and an epert on the subject. My husband I and I loved it and will plan another tour on our next visit!

  • Incredible. Our tour guide was so knowledgable about Hamilton and other historical facts in general. You could easily tell she loved her job. We went on the tour, then later in the evening saw Hamilton. One of the best days ever for my teenage daughter.

  • The guide was knowledgeable, imparting interesting information and stories of the times. Still, for those seeking an Alexander Hamilton/Aaron Burr focus, as advertised, the tour is fairly generalized.

  • Karen, our guide, was fabulous. The entire tour was so interesting. The time went by too fast. I think there would be enough information for a Part 2 of this subject in the areas of NYC. I had done much reading but never knew where the actual sights of where much of our history of these two famous people occurred. I would highly recommend any one who likes history to take this tour.
