It was great! Really informative and interesting, and the tone was just right for the kind of people who would want to attend (Hamilfans). Would definitely recommend to friends and family going to NYC to see Hamilton.

We booked as we love the show and we’re really looking forward to it having read about this tour. Clearly with the weather really rainy was going to be challenging, however we felt that the experience was a let down from our expectation. The Guide who I won’t name was a nice chap, but the route, the explanations and the set up of the tour was In My opinion quite amateur. Like I say I am not going to speak bad of the guide he was a nice chap but the overall experience for us was very underwhelming and would not have paid as much as we did had we known.
icon Response from Host , May 2022
I am so sorry the tour did not meet your expectations. I will speak to the guide in question and see if there is anything we can improve to help avoid this from occurring in the future. I will contact you offline to see what can be done to "make it right".

Chazz was great and very knowledgeable. As both a Hamilton and history fan, it's great to get to talk with someone else who is so well versed in both, and seeing the locations and hearing the stories was a great experience, I highly recommend.

"What did I miss?"

Just having the chance to walk on the same ground where history was made and to envision what was going on at the time of the revolution in NYC was powerful. Trinity Church was a great ending and we left with wonder and question whether our Democracy will survive the threat it is facing today from Congress that is more concerned about reelection than the citizens it represents.

Things haven't changed much in terms of finding politicians who put the country before self interests. This play has awakened the discussion and maybe will help folks make sense of our history and our future.

We took this tour not having previously seen Hamilton or knowing too much about him but this did mot matter. We were given lots of interesting facts and information and visited several important landmarks and felt by the end of the tour, we knew his life story and cant wait to go and see the show in July. Leo was a perfectly adequate host and clearly knows his stuff. The earpieces worked well for the most part however, they did lose connection at times and Leo was unaware each time, but what a refreshing change to the older headsets you used to get!

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. I'm sorry the radios were not working 100% of the time. These are the latest state of the art devices. We will run a test on them to try and avoid this in the future.

The fact that Leo really expanded my knowledge of Hamilton and NYC history. He said he had just started doing tours solo but seems like he’s an old pro.

Rounding out our Hamilton knowledge

Fantastic tour with Chaz. Even though we have seen the musical and can sing all of the songs on command we still learned a lot about Hamilton’s time. So fun walking the streets they walked. Thank you for helping to round out our experience of the Hamilton Musical!
