We heard a lot during the musical that we learned about during the tour. It enhanced our enjoyment of the musical.

Thank you so much. I like to think of the tour as a libretto to an opera you may not be that familiar with. Thanks for taking the time to write a review.

This tour was good. Not quite what I expected…not as many songs and not quite as energetic as I’d hoped for. We enjoyed the tour, we just weren’t blow away by it.

A memorable morning in NYC with my granddaughter.

Shared an informative, enjoyable event with my 14 year old granddaughter. We both were fully involved throughout. Chazz is a great guide. NY is full of history. Hamilton was a great man and Lin-Manuel Miranda is a “ genius”. Great fun

Highly entertaining historical jaunt and sing-along through the big apple

If you are a fan of the play, this tour is for you. The use of the music to serve as an outline for the tour is ingenious. We met (punctually) at the Staten Island Ferry station and our adventure began from there. Chazz, our guide, was very good at what he does! He was a wealth of information and kept things moving at a great pace, but we never felt rushed at all. I liked that he pointed out several non-Hamilton related things of interest along our tour. His love for New York was evident and it added an additional element to our tour. The tour lasted just over 3 hours but it didn't seem to drag at all. I appreciated his hardcore honesty when it came to the mentions of slavery in the play, and his willingness to admit his hip hop bias that was overcome partly due to the use of it in the Hamilton play. Just an overall wonderful tour for Hamilton play fans. We we thoroughly impressed.

Thank you so much for the wonderful review. I always say that great guests make for a great tour. When I have tuned in guests like yourself it helps me to bring my "A" game to the tour. Thanks again for the feedback.

History in NYC with a musical touch
Elizabeth_B
, Aug 2021
Chaz was absolutely amazing. You can tell he is very passionate about giving you all the information related to the musical while walking in the footsteps of Hamilton and our founding fathers. We learned so much more than expected and saw places we never knew the historical value of. I would recommend this to anyone who liked Hamilton the Broadway musical but also if you are just interested in Alexander Hamilton himself and the history of NYC.

Thank you for the heat warming review. As I've said many times great guests mean great tours. I always learn something from the folks on the tour and your group was no exception. So glad you had. good time.

Hamilton tour with teens
Caroline_H
, Aug 2021
Our guide was super knowledgable And used examples from pop culture which made it relevant for my teens. The 3 hours was a bit long for them but could have worked if the tech were improved. We couldn’t hear the guide for much of the tour and at other times the music blared in our ears. The guide was great overall but the sound system needs an update.
icon Response from Host , Aug 2021
Thanks for the feedback. I apologize for the technical problems. I have purchased a new audio system which will cure those problems. If you come back to New York please get in touch take the tour again for free with the new radios. I appreciate your understanding.
