Reid gave us a wealth of information, interspersed with songs from the musical. It was good that he sang along, so we were able to follow the information communicated in the songs, as the words went by very quickly. We appreciated how he found shady places for us sit while he talked at length, since it was quite a warm day. It was not a lot of walking, as walking tours go, but we learned a lot about Alexander Hamilton!
