Revolutionary War Walking Tour
NYC’s only Daily Revolutionary War Walking Tour – since 2005
Relive historic New York – The Island at the Center of the World on our Revolutionary War Walking Tour! In 1776, the world focused on New York City. Would the great British Empire crush her rebellious colonies, or would Washington’s army disappear inland, making it a long and brutal war?
On your walking tour you’ll:
- Stand where the Sons of Liberty held their rowdy protests against the King and Parliament.
- Look across the East River to Brooklyn, where Washington’s Army escaped capture on a dark August night.
- Hear about the “Real Housewife” of colonial NYC and what she did to help the outnumbered American forces.
- Visit some of the oldest remaining historic sites in New York City like St. Paul’s Chapel, John St. Methodist Church, Federal Hall and Fraunces Tavern.
- Stand in the spot where the Declaration of Independence was read, July 9, 1776 by order of Commander George Washington.
- Hear the story of the Culper Spy Ring and how they warned General Washington about a shocking act of treason coming his way.
“Never has a piece of land so small caused so much misery for the crown as the damned city of New York”, exclaimed one of our former colonial governors.

“My husband & I are TURN fans so thoroughly enjoyed the Revolutionary NY Tour.
Despite the cold and rain, there was so much information and so many great stories
that we were not discouraged. Next time we’re in town, we will definitely be taking
another tour. Tickets would make an excellent gift.” – 1/1/2017
“This was an awesome tour! Karen was great and extremely knowledgeable. The only regret I have is not booking the private tour, because I would have loved to get more in depth stories and conversations, but that’s just me being selfish! Such a great time!” – 11/05/2016
