    We really enjoyed this tour. Guide was extremely knowledgeable and well spoken. Lots of great and interesting information about New York and its part in the Revolutionary War. The only downside for me was there was a lot of standing in one place which is difficult for me back problems. I highly recommend this tour for US history buffs.

    I love the Revolutionary War period. This tour was so informative. I love learning about how New York looked back then and how its size has evolved over time. Karen was an amazing guide and gave us so much insight into the politics of the time period as well as what it looked like to be a colonial of the time.

    WOW. The tour guide and owner of the tour is amazing. She makes the history fun and alive. She is engaging, informative, and entertaining. There were at least 2-3 times where she told historical stories, and then we recognized how similar events were happening now! History repeats itself! There really was not that much walking, all around the financial district, but frequent stops.
    HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
