Discover the life of Alexander Hamilton on this guided, 2.5-hour, small-group walking tour in New York City. See landmark locations and historical points of interest that show the impact Hamilton had on US history and New York City culture. Visit place like the Commons Chelsea, the Kings College, St. Paul's Chapel, Wall Street, Fraunces Tavern, Trinity Church, and more while listening to the storytelling guide along the way.
This historical tour begins at the City Hall Park entrance at Broadway and Park Place. Meet and greet the guide and the rest of the small group, then get ready to explore the city in search of one of America's founding fathers — Alexander Hamilton.
Actually, this is a journey through the lives of two men: Hamilton and Aaron Burr, the third vice president of the United States. Get to know them through their own words, the views of the people around them, and the events of the times.
On this 2.5-hour walking tour, experience New York City before, during, and after the American Revolution. A city torn apart, burned, rebuilt, and on its way to becoming the greatest financial center in the world. But getting there would take it through some of the nastiest political debate the state and nation had ever known.
Visit some of the oldest remaining historic sites in New York City, like St. Paul’s Chapel, the oldest-surviving church building in Manhattan; Federal Hall, the first capitol building of the United States; and the graveyard at Trinity Church. Step into the world of Hamilton and Burr, visit the sites that were part of their daily lives, and get to know the people around them. Follow their paths as they lead to that fateful day in 1804 at Weehawken, New Jersey — when Burr fatally shoots Hamilton, his long-time political antagonist.
See original, uncensored documents from the time period including excerpts from the letters between Hamilton and Burr. Get to know these two extraordinary men as they really were — the truth is considerably more fascinating than the stories most people have grown up believing.
The tour ends at Trinity Church, located at Broadway and Wall Street.
