The best thing on this tour is the fantastic guide: Astrid. She is so knowledgeable about Hamilton's life (clearly, she has a strong passion for this tour and did a lot of homework, such as reading the Ron Chernow's book) and leads the tour in a story-telling fashion, which connects dots of Hamilton's life together seamlessly (from how Hamilton grew up, studied in NY, fought in wars, and died in a duel).

Informative and fun Hamilton Tour with Astrid
Sarah_E
, Apr 2022
Both my daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed our tour that was somewhere between two and three hours long (we totally lost track of time). If my daughter who is only twelve was able to maintain focus and attention for this amount of time, the tour had to have been quite compelling, which it was! Among the aspects she enjoyed were the references to the Hamilton musical and the church cemetery with the graves of Hamilton and his friends and family. A giant thank you to Astrid!

This was the highlight of our trip! Astrid (our tour guide) was informative, personable, funny, excited about the subject, and the 2 hours flew by! She even found places for us to sit when she could to help rest while she shared history, anecdotes, and brought it all together for us.
