    What to Expect
    Meet your guide and group outside of City Hall 10 minutes before your chosen tour time. You'll recognize your guide as one of the founding fathers of the country, Alexander Hamilton. Your guide is a native New Yorker and professional colonial reenactor, who will stay in character throughout your walking tour of colonial New York.

    Visit landmarks such as Aaron Burr's law office, Thomas Jefferson's residence, George Washington's residence, the first Supreme Court and the first US Congress. As you walk, you'll be able to travel back in time through your guide's commentary. See America's First War Memorial, where Alexander Hamilton drilled with Revolutionary Soldiers, where the Sons of Liberty erected Liberty Poles, and where Patriots fought the British prior to the Boston Massacre

    Headsets are provided so you can hear your guide clearly, and you'll have plenty of time to ask questions during and after the tour.
