My husband and I took this tour with Karen Q and had a terrific time! We are both big Revolutionary War history enthusiasts and LOVE the AMC series Turn: The Washington Spies. The sites we saw, information and history we heard was wonderful! Karen Q does a fantastic job of telling a chronological story of the events of the revolution... More

This tour was the best I've ever been on. Of course, as a Hamilton fan, I was looking forward to it, but I was amazed at the detail and knowledge the tour guide, Karen, had to offer. The pictures she shows are wonderful first sources that mean a lot - her research is extensive and provides a great context for... More

Heading to NYC to see Hamilton? If so, you MUST take this tour first. Our tour guide Karen was incredibly knowledgeable about the Hamilton and Burr families as well as the historical times in which they lived. Karen presented the information enthusiastically and willingly answered all questions. This was by far the best guided tour I have taken in NYC... More

I was on a girls only trip 3/25-4/1/17 with my mother-in-law, (73) sister-in-law (40s) from Utah, and my daughter (25) & I (56) from California. None of us had ever before been in New York.

We loved our tour with Karen Q. She moved the tour up a day to avoid the snow storm and it was perfect. Very knowledgable and very engaging. My kids 8 & 10 were fascinated. I highly recommend this tour!

I believe Karen the guide is the owner. Always try to support small business owner/operators. Worried that on a windy day I (elderly male) would have a problem hearing. Not a problem. Extremely well run. The walk is steady but well paced. We did the Burr/Hamilton and would do the revolution tour one day as well.Visit lots of cool places... More

Tour was very interesting. The guide, Karen, was extremely knowledgeable about the history of the period and delivered her message with such passion. The buildings and artifacts were fun to look at and helped to transport us back into the historic period. I highly recommend the tour. It would be a great supplement,either before or after to the Hamilton musical.

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!
