My family and I were coming into NYC to see Hamilton and enjoy wonderful dining and sightseeing. We started our trip out perfectly with Kevin and the Founding Fathers Tour. He greeted my 9 year old son and I with a welcome smile and so much knowledge of the days Hamilton, Jefferson, Adams and Washington walked the streets of New York. Kevin you did a wonderful job creating the times of years past and as we sat watching the play the next day I could envision so much of the events and places because of your description and places we visited during our tour. This may have been my first tour with Kevin but for sure it will not be our last - looking forward to learning so much more about this great nation! Don’t hesitate call now to book it or any of his tours!

My twelve year old daughter, 75 year old mother and I took a private Hamilton and Founding Fathers walking tour last week. It was the highlight of our trip to New York. Kevin expertly brought this history alive for each of us and took us to areas of New York City that the average tourist would not think to go.
Kevin is versed both in history and the interests of today. He engaged my daughter with her love of Lin Manuel Miranda's musical and also spoke to the adults regarding how the history of the past is influencing the politics of today. This was a fascinating and educational experience for all of us. We highly recommend Kevin to anyone wanting to experience the history of New York City.

Our tour guide Kevin was fantastic on this 2 1/2 hour walking tour. Helpful to have a clear and chilly winter day without much wind as the views along the way were spectacular. Kevin was knowledgeable, engaging and fun to be with. He communicated a wealth of information on the bridge including its construction and the historical context of this extraordinary project. Subsequently we walked Brooklyn Heights and its stunning and varied architecture and finished along the promenade with a history lesson on the revolutionary war battle of Brooklyn. All in all a wonderful experience
