Great tour by Karen. We were late arriving due to getting stuck on a train. Called Karen and she was so kind, waited for us and helped us with directions. It is obvious she has researched her tours and really knows what she is talking about, not just pointing out the typical tourist spots. Gave us background information, pointed out... More

My fiancee took me to this as an engagement gift on the Hamilton walking tour! Karen was incredible, well knowledged, and she brought the history to life in the modern buildings on the tour. It was well placed, with lots of stops and amazing sights the entire way. It was well worth the money and if given the opportunity, I... More

We took the Hamilton-Burr Tour. It was very informative and Karen was a great story teller. Saw areas and learned so many interesting facts. We are locals and never did a walking tour in NYC before. Will definitely take the Revolutionary War Tour in the near future. Highly recommend this tour.

From the beginning, Karen was great. We signed up for a different tour because the one that we wanted (Revolutionary War) was not available on the day we wanted. I mentioned that in the comment section that we wanted the other tour if possible and a few hours later, I received a text message saying that she was going to... More

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...
