Custom Hamilton All Day Tour
Hamilton fans, this tour is for you. With our local guides, you’ll be able to customize an experience that delves into the life of America’s favorite Founding Fathers and really ends with a bang, potentially with pre-arranged show tickets to the hit musical Hamilton!
For those wanting to get an insight into Alexander Hamilton’s personal life, we can visit Hamilton Grange National Memorial, a National Park Service site located in upper Manhattan preserving the restored home of the revolutionary leader during the final years of his life. We’ll stroll the yard and imagine what daily life was like for Hamilton after his move to the quieter environs of uptown New York.
In the surrounding eponymous neighborhood of Hamilton Heights, your guide can point out their favorite food and drink restaurants and vendors as you make your way past the birthplace of the actor, singer-songwriter, and playwright who brought life to the story of Alexander Hamilton. We’ll discuss Lin-Manuel Miranda’s inspiration behind the award-winning musical, its unique perspective on the historical figures connected to Hamilton, and the legacy it has left on history and Broadway.
From uptown to midtown, there are more historical places of interest to explore, some of which have their own connection to the American Revolution, and your guide will easily navigate you using the NYC subway system.
One point of interest for die-hard Hamilton fans is accessible by a short boat ride across the Hudson River to Weehawken, New Jersey: the Alexander Hamilton Monument. Your guide will reconstruct the tense and oft debated moments before, during, and after the famous duel between Hamilton and his bitter rival Aaron Burr.
Back in the city, we can continue to trace the life and legacy of Hamilton by visiting the Financial District, the statesman’s old stomping grounds. We can pose in front of the Charging Bull of Wall Street as well as the opposing Fearless Girl statue and nearby Federal Hall and historic structure housing The Bank of New York. You’ll learn about Hamilton’s ties to these institutions and how they shaped New York City as a major financial center.
We’ll be happy to include on your custom tour more stops for food, and you certainly want to save room for a bite to eat at the last place where Alexander Hamilton was seen alive! Enjoy a meal or even just a swig of whiskey – the way our founding leaders would have – at Fraunces Tavern and Museum.
No matter how much ground we’re able to cover based on your budget and time, you’ll be ready to make all of this history really come alive: enjoy pre-arranged tickets to Hamilton, and take home some memories of a lifetime. That’s right! We’ll take care of the tickets when available, while all you have to do is relax, sing along to hits like My Shot and Satisfied, and take in the performance of a lifetime.
Our Hamilton All Day tour is for everyone, and our local history-loving guides are prepared to create an amazing custom tour based on the interests of everyone in your party!
