Chazz the guide is extremely knowledgable, friendly, and funny. He really brought the personalities, places, and history to life. Fans of the musical, but also lovers of history and of manhattan should check out this tour.

There could not possibly be a better Hamilton Tour than this. Leo was our guide, and he was so knowledgeable and packed with information, our entire family had an amazing experience. The electronic earpieces and audio/visual support of the tour made it incredible and had us walking through the streets hearing clips from our favorite Hamilton songs. We got to see so much of the downtown area that we never would have seen or noticed otherwise. We have a new appreciation for all the unsung heroes of the revolutionary war and the difficulties Washington and his men faced. Cannot say enough good things about the tour; loved the American history and all the insights into the songs , what was accurate and what was done for dramatic effect. These Hamilton fans were super grateful for the tour, thanks Leo!

This was a great way to spend a few hours in NYC, especially if you are a musical theatre and/or history buff. Our guide Leo was friendly, well informed and entertaining, combining history insights with clips from the show as we walked around various sights including Thomas Jefferson's house ("the room where it happened"), the original federal reserve and Hamilton's grave. Highly recommended.

I’ve seen Hamilton several times over many years, and still loved this tour. We learned things we didn’t know such as there was actual 15 Schuyler siblings not just 3 sisters. It was very informative and a mix of walking & sitting. After the tour, we went back to Fraunces Tavern and ate their famous pot pie. Leo did a great job!

Leo was a fantastic guide and really brought history to life! The pace was perfect, engaging, and plenty of places to stop in the shade and have a seat. Even if you’re unfamiliar with the musical, this was a great lesson in early American history!

Kristin_T

Really enjoyed the contrast between the historical life of Hamilton and what was chosen to portray in the musical. Also enjoyed the critique of the songs in the musical and what other music songwriters may have influenced them. Saw some interesting historical areas of lower Manhattan and learned many new facts about the city and US history. Highly recommend.

Leo was a knowledgeable and personable tour guide. He made our experience come alive. We learned a lot of history about Hamilton and his role in the revolution.

Leo was just fantastic, through and through. His passion for all things Hamilton / Washington / downtown NYC was palpable and infectious. I brought my 8-year-old, who has a burgeoning interest in American history, and Leo's presentation was incredible food for her intellectual curiosity. Leo brought the rich history of the neighborhood to life, mapping it against references in the Hamilton score (which he played for us on our earbud devices), lifting out hidden meanings, historical references, pointing out how Lin-Manuel Miranda borrowed from and honored other hip-hop artists and musical theater composers. He was thoughtful about balancing standing, walking and sitting time -- along with the need for restroom breaks -- making the 3-hour adventure fly by for my child and me. I only wish I'd taken his tour years ago, as it would've deepened my appreciation for both the musical and my hometown. Highly highly recommended for anyone interested in Hamilton the musical and/or the person, Washington, Jefferson, the American Revolution, downtown Manhattan, or any combination of the above. Thank you, Leo!!

We are huge Hamilton fans and were in NY to see the show for the first time. This was the perfect morning activity to learn more about the history! It was very interesting! We had so much fun!

Our tour guide, Chazz, gave us the most well-researched, multi-faceted, well-composed experience on a windy and rainy day spring day. It was the perfect complement to our watching the musical the next day. We were our Hamilton shirts and sang our way through the rain. We are huge Hamilfans, especially our son, and this was our treat for his 12th birthday. He told me, "Mama, you told me that the tour guide will 'drop some knowledge' 😉, but I didn't expect him to have so many cool facts. It blew my mind." Book this tour to find out how Biggie Smalls, Titanic, and Texas almost became part of England are all related!
