Follow your guide on a trip through history and learn about the "Duel that Changed a Nation" between Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr on this 2.5-hour walking tour.

Meet your guide at the corner of Broadway and Murray Street to journey into the streets of Lower Manhattan, past architectural icons and towering landscapes as your guide tells stories that bring the past to life. 

You'll experience the city before, during and after the American Revolution and learn how the Big Apple was torn apart, burnt down, and rebuilt before becoming one of the financial centers of the world.

There will be plenty of spots to sit and rest as your guide shares tales of political debates gone wrong and points out some of the oldest remaining buildings in the city, like Federal Hall and Trinity Church Graveyard. You'll also see sites as they were during the time of Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr as you follow their path to the duel that took place in 1804.

See original historical documents, plus letters between Hamilton and Burr, before ending your tour at Trinity Church.

Karen is a font of knowledge when it comes to American history. We were an Australian family whom knew very little but were really excited with all the new history we learnt. Karen was very easy to talk with and answered all questions with great depth. Thoroughly recommend taking this tour with Karen and enjoy a walk with intellect. A+++++

Absolutely loved the Hamilton and Burr Walking Tour. Karen Q, the tour guide, is so knowledgeable about the subjects and shares so much information that you actually feel like you went back into history. We had two 8-year-olds with interest in history with us and they were able to recount many facts that they learned on the tour. We would definitely sign up for other tours like this one.

Very informative. Karen is an extremely knowledgable guide and corrects many of the falsehoods about Hamilton and Burr that are widely known to the public. IT has a good pace, but 3 hours, vice 2.5 may be more appropriate. An excellent segway to anyone going to see the play HAMILTON, in the future.
