Alex was such a great tour guide, who provided lots of history and stories of Alexander Hamilton's rise to be a huge influence on banking, Wall Street and the American history. Tour was entertaining and informative and it was a great way to spend the afternoon in the financial district with family!

This walking/food tour of 3 Brooklyn neighborhoods was thoroughly enjoyable. It exceeded our expectations with numerous stops at independent small businesses—some with long histories, all with interesting histories and all with very tasty food and/or drink. The neighborhoods were beautiful and inviting. Alex was very knowledgeable and very easy to be with. Highly recommend.

We had the fantastic Greg taking us to historical sites and bringing to life all the tales that we had a little knowledge of from being big fans of the show, and also some unknown facts too! He had a real passion for the history, welcomed questions and discussions and we could have spent another few hours discussing Hamilton with him! Definitely recommend reading the book or seeing the show first as it will mean so much more

We did this tour with Alex. It was a very pleasant afternoon. Started in front of the beautiful Trinity Church. We liked all the stops, especially at the Federal Fall. The graveyard was nice too. Highly recommended. It shows you a part of NYC that you don't expect!

We enjoyed our tour with Jenny! We sampled a lot of excellent beer in Brooklyn and learned a lot about the places and areas that we toured. We went to Brooklyn to experience the area, and this was a big hit for us.
