Best tour I’ve ever been on. My daughter who is 11 and passionate about American history described it as “the best day of her life”. Our guide was excellent and incredibly knowledgeable. Two huge thumbs up!

Great tour. Bruce is knowledgeable and enthusiastic. My husband and I loved it.

For kids- maybe best for teens with a real interest either in history or the Hamilton musical.

Bruce is amazingly interesting and knowledgeable! Some things were reminders of what I learned (& forgot)years ago as a student. Some I never heard before. I wish I took this tour prior to seeing Hamilton.
