I love a good spy story, and as a history professor I also appreciate solid research. Karen's Revolutionary Spies Tour provides lots of both--good stories and careful research. The tour uncovers the Revolutionary War history of New York City while focusing on the spies who sought to undermine the British occupation, with characters like Nathan Hale, Benedict Arnold, Hercules Mulligan, Benjamin Tallmadge, James Rivington, and others. The tour has something for everyone--you don't have to be an expert on history. Karen makes revolutionary spies come alive!
My tour with Karen was a highlight of my trip to NYC. Now, I'm a writer and I'm researching the era, so I was extra keen to hear All The Details, but I found myself wishing the rest of my clan had joined me for this one. To learn about history and politics helps put a city in her proper context, and Karen adds enough humor and human interest stories to keep it engaging. I just wish I lived closer so I could take her spy and Hamilton tours too!
Took the Revolutionary Walking Tour with Karen. She is extremely knowledgeable and easy to talk to. She spent time with each individual in our small group, answering their questions and discussing the topics that were of interest to them. I would definitely take another tour with Karen. If you like Revolutionary War history, I would highly recommend this tour.
We took this tour the morning before seeing the play. As lovers of the musical we found the information stunning as our hero was not presented as much of a hero. But we thoroughly enjoyed thought we felt the start of it was a little too long and boring. We wanted to get going. While I loved her map of old NY it would've been even better if she could overlay 1800s NYC over today's NYC to help give us bearings.IF you're interested in history Karen is very informative and entertaining. Well worth the money.
We were a little nervous about signing up for a walking tour in February but it was definitely worth it! Karen is an excellent and enthusiastic tour guide. I would highly recommend any of her tours.
After watching the AMC series,Turn, I guessed there would be a Revolutionary War tour of NYC, and lo, I found Karen's tour. It was a bitter cold February day, but so worth it. Karen seems to know everything about the Revolutionary War period and the history of NYC. My husband is usually no fan of walking tours, but he loved this one. Karen's enthusiasm is remarkable. We visit NYC almost every year, and we will definitely book another tour with Karen.
What a great walking tour. You know it had to be good to spend the 2 1/2 hours on a walking tour in January with temps in mid 20's. Karen is such an expert on history but she tells it with such entertaining stories! Highly recommend taking this tour. My husband knows his American Revolution history so I was concerned he think it was more entertainment than history but not the case! Factual and entertaining! Thanks Karen!
The absolute best American history tours in NYC! I’ve taken all three tours offered by Karen and she is the best because of her knowledge and passion for the subjects she covers. As a lover of American history, I appreciate the in-depth archival research and the time invested in such an endeavor. These are critical, valuable, stories forgotten or never taught in our history classes. If you thought you couldn’t connect with our past, Karen will bring it back to life and remind you it is all around us and must be preserved and protected.
Had a great time with Karen on the tour! I wanted to make my parents' visit to NYC unique and special, and my dad and I are both interested in Revolutionary War history. This was the perfect gift.
The tour greatly exceeded our expectations. We have been a Revolutionary War Re enactors with the 1st NY Regiment and the information Karen presented greatly added to our appreciation of the role NYC played in that conflict. Karen really made the past come alive. Articulate, friendly and accommodating. I recommend this for anyone with an interest in NYC and the Revolution. Can't wait to take it again with some of my other history loving friends. Thank you Kare.
