New York: The Story of Hamilton Walking Tour

6. New York: The Story of Hamilton Walking Tour

With the success of the hit musical Hamilton, this group or private tour is to help people understand how an illegitimate immigrant finds his way to New York, remakes himself, and becomes one of the most brilliant, charismatic, and controversial founding fathers! Walk in the footsteps of Alexander Hamilton through New York City’s oldest neighborhood, the financial district, and discover how this famous New Yorker has his fingerprints on nearly every landmark these streets have to offer. The adventure begins at Trinity Church, where Hamilton was buried as a result of one of the darkest days in American political history. Learn how Hamilton arrived in America on the eve of a revolution and quickly became one of the most influential minds of his day, only to be shot dead before his 50th birthday. Stop by Zuccotti Park and uncover how more recent revolutionary movements like Occupy Wall Street trace their roots to Hamilton’s ambitious plans for American prosperity. Next, learn how Hamilton’s role as America’s first Secretary of the Treasury ultimately led to the creation of the New York Stock Exchange. Across the street sits Federal Hall, where Hamilton looked on as George Washington was sworn in as the nation's’ first president and where he served in the first cabinet. Then check out the two Wall Street skyscrapers that still stand as reminders of the epic feud between Hamilton and Burr, one emblazoned with the name of one of our more recent politicians and local celebrities, Donald Trump. Finally, make your way down the first paved street in New York City to one of the oldest bars in town, where Hamilton himself used to drink with George Washington. Along the entire route you will discover not only Hamilton’s history in New York but also how he came to epitomize the American Dream, created the modern world you live in today, inspired many of our wealthy leaders who continue to shape the city and world, and finally, how he wrestled with the questions of wealth, privilege, and power in ways that are just as relevant today as they were in the 1700s.

The tour guide, Ray was amazing and had a very upbeat personality that drew in our attention! He was very informative of the history of the many locations he took us to before he took us to get on the ferry to the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. 10/10! Best tour guide ever. If you actually want to go inside the Statue of Liberty, you’ll have to purchase that separately from this tour. You have plenty of time to go see everything on each island so take your time to take it all in. They have a ferry to pick you up every 15 minutes. I highly recommend this tour!

WOW!!! Great tour. You walk a lot so be ready. This tour is a great way to get to see the Willamsburg and DUMBO neighborhoods of Brooklyn with part of Chinatown and the Lower East Side of Manhattan. You do walk across the Brooklyn, Manhattan and Willamsburg bridges. It's a challenge but a lot of fun. It's a great highlights tour.

This encounter was a very good way for me, first time to NYC, to get oriented. The price was VERY reasonable. After the tour I felt confident to tackle the subways myself and just walk the street of NYC--this coming from a guy who swore "I will NEVER go to New York!" I am now planning when I'm going to return.

A day well spent! Our guide was knowledgeable and kept us going at a good pace. Highly recommended, if you'd like to spend your day exploring new things and learning some interesting facts along the way. You won't be disappointed!

Great tour. We saw a lot of New York City. We even made a few extra stops. The restaurant was fun. The views from the Edge, amazing. This is a fun tour.
