Revolutionary War Tour is Great

Karen does an awesome job with the Revolutionary War Tour around southern Manhattan. You'll learn a lot and get a nice walk in as well.

I have gone on two tours with Karen. In 2015 I did the revolutionary war walking tour and in 2016 I went back for the civil war tour. The tours complement each other, with emphasis on NYC role in both wars, economy and race relations. Karen is amazing, talking, talking the whole time, providing information, insight and history. Walking the... More

Our family -- including our two teenagers, loved Patriot's Revolutionary War New York City Tour. Karen was an extremely knowledgeable and entertaining tour guide who painted a picture of 18th century New York landscape, people and politics with exceptionally talented story-telling skills. She limits her tour to smaller groups and we heard every word as we journeyed all around Old... More

My daughter and I took the Revolutionary War Tour, and we loved it! Karen was so enthusiastic and possesses a wealth of knowledge. She painted a vivid picture, along with a descriptive, dramatic and engaging "story" - but the best part of the tour was that everything we heard was true, and we were standing in the exact location that...

I've become obsessed with American History after seeing Hamilton.Karen is extremely knowledgeable and outgoing and provided a great tour of key NYC American Revolution related sites. I highly recommend this tour and will be going on her other ones when I return to New York.

We planned to take the Revolutionary War tour the day we had tickets for Hamilton. The timing could not have been better! Karen took us to places where the founders of our country lived, worked, faught, and where some are buried (including Hamilton and his wife). To stand in places where pivotal events occurred, and have Karen reading from original... More

This was the second tour with Karen. this time with my wife. I've never learned so much in a completely entertaining a nod enlightening manner. Karen is passionate and speaks so articulately she should run for office. This is a no miss event for everyone. Hamilton and Burr, Revolutionary War-time to reserve the third of three-the Civil War tour.

Karen's Hamilton Tour was outstanding. I have two teenage sons who are huge Hamilton fans, and since tickets to the play were out of the question, we did this tour instead. The tour was totally engaging, and Karen didn't just fill us with facts but rather wove a story of Hamilton, Burr and our country's birth. She is extremely knowledgeable... More

Karen's Hamilton Tour was so much fun and far exceeded my expectations. She really knows her stuff and has a great way of telling the stories. She even shows you pictures, letters from the archives, and old maps of the city and old drawings of certain street corners. It was the perfect amount of talking-to-walking ratio. You don't have to... More

We absolutely loved this tour! Karen gave an interesting, informative and fun tour of Hamilton and Burr's New York City. My daughter and I learned a lot and laughed a lot.
