My daughter and &! had a wonderful time on the Hamilton/Burr walking tour with Karen. We enjoyed learning not only about Hamilton, Burr and other figures from the American Revolution, but also seeing places in New York that we haven't seen before. Karen's passion about history was contagious! We would definitley recommend this tour!
My husband Bob and I took 2 tours with Karen Q of Patriot Tours. The Revolutionary War Era Tour was first tour and Hamilton and Burr Walking tour was the second. Karen Q. was very friendly, bubbly, and professional as she guided us through the sites, giving us tidbits and accurate knowledge that she has learned through original documents, continually reading up on the subject matter and reciting poetry. Outstanding tours and plan on takin on more this summer. Her website is packed with more information on her tours and I plan on reading up on her book suggestions. Thank you Karen Q! I'll be letting my 700 Facebook friends know about you.
It’s rare that a product or service delivers more that you expected or provided a greater value than you expected for the price paid. The Revolutionary War era walking tour of Downtown Manhattan was just such a experience. Karen Q, our guide and owner of Patriot Tours, gave an effortless description and explanation of what life was like in our nations most famous city 240 years ago. Since there are few colonial era buildings that have survived, she used drawings from the period to compare to the existing scene along the tour stops to create a mind picture of what the scene looked like in the day. Supplemented with many stories of the important characters and events of the time as depicted in local period publications and papers, she brought people and events back to life. Karen spoke for 2 1/2 hours about the history with only a few notes. It’s apparent she effortlessly knows the material with great specificity. Next time I’m planning a trip to New York, I will try to catch one of her other historical tours such as the Alexander Hamilton/Aaron Burr tour. I highly recommend anything she offers, it will be as good as is humanly possible.
Excellent tour! Karen is a human encyclopedia of information about Colonial era NYC, but that info is presented in a lively, easily understood way that never become too much, or too fast. The tour was long, but the time went quickly. When a tour member with a young child in tow needed a bathroom, Karen promptly took us all to one-- clearly she knows "where to go." ; )
I found the tour of Lower Manhattan's Colonial and Dutch sites fascinating, and would certainly go on another tour when I'm in NYC again.
Your tour was fact filled without being dry. Very fun and informative. This was our last guided tour on our 10 day George Washington's War Campaigns trip and it was an excellent tour. Our whole group gave it very positive reviews. I highly recommend our tour guide, Karen.
We did the Revolutionary War tour and historic New York. We loved how knowledgeable and passionate our tour guide, Karen, was. She had an answer for anyone's questions, knew more than just the typical text book history, had wonderful stories and we learned so much. We would recommend this tour for folks who just have a day or two in New York, or have a longer stay planned. In fact, we have recommended this tour to friends who are traveling there this Fall. We hope to return and do some of her other tours.
We are a Hamilton musical obsessed family! The tour was an awesome complement and great way to learn even more about the characters and see the actual sites! We brought our 9 and 11 year old sons and they were just as into it as we were. Highly recommend!
The Revolutionary Era Tour/Historic NYC was excellent! As I told our guide Karen Q (and she's much more than a tour guide) I'd walked the streets of the NY financial district hundreds of times when I worked in the area, but after hearing the incredible wealth of history Karen had to offer, I'll never again view the area as just quaint little downtown streets. This tour is highly recommended!
Very nice tour.
Definitely start your visit in NYC with Patriot Tours even if you don’t consider yourself a history buff. It enhanced my experience because I was seeing so much more. Karen really brings life and color to the long forgotten (to me) past.
