A group of 5 friends took the Revolutionary Tour with Karen and I have to say that as we finished up our New York trip and were evaluating all the amazing things we did, this tour was on the top of everyone's list. It was so informational, and added more context to the many places we have wandered around in lower Manhattan before, not realizing their significance. Karen was so friendly and personable. She really knew her stuff from her own original source investigating. I have already recommended the tour to many others, and will definitely do it again on a future trip to NY. Thanks, Karen, so being so great and giving us such a wonderful experience!
I have taken the Revolutionary war tour and the Hamilton--Burr tours and both were unbelievable!!!Karen had so many interesting tidbits about the supporters and opponents of British rule. I was impressed by the extensive research she had done. I would highly recommend these tours to everyone. If you are not interested in Revolutionary war history before this tour you definitely will be interested after taking this tour!!
We took the Hamilton tour after having read Chernow's (well, most of) biography and on the day we were going to see Miranda's musical that evening. The weather was not perfect for walking - not really raining, but often lightly misting. The tour was still a terrific experience. Karen's knowledge of the revolutionary era, combined with her delightful presentation style, made it a great experience. And she had some options ready for when the weather was not so great.
Karen is both a great storyteller and a knowledgable historian and that makes for a really interesting tour of the key Hamilton and Burr related New York sites. You will learn a lot and laugh a lot. And if you are a fan of Hamilton and/or Burr, you will be delighted to learn many facts and perspectives outside of Lin Manual Miranda's extraordinary musical, Karen is friendly and enthusiastic and her talents for spinning great tales were on full display on today's cool, sunny June morning. Feel free to ask questions-they are very welcome. We highly recommend her tours!
My tour was on May 4, 2017, and it was a fine day for walking in NYC - perfect weather, and if I didn't know better, I thought Karen herself had ordered it. She is a superb and enthusiastic guide. She shared not only the history of the area but wonderful stories as well. I highly recommend this tour to anyone who is interested in our nation's history.
My husband and I took the Revolutionary War tour and it was above and beyond what we expected. Karen was a wonderful tour guide and we enjoyed her enthusiasm for the topic! She made the people real, the places real and gave us such a feel for Revolutionary War Manhattan that we talked about all evening. We love that she had copies of the documents to support her information and walked us to the sites and helped us 'see' the past. We have done many history tours and the ones we have enjoyed the most are the ones where the guide has a true love for the subject at hand. Karen is at the top of that list. We really can't say enough about her and how much we enjoyed our tour!!
This was a fantastic tour! It was raining and a little chilly so only four people showed up and we basically had a private tour with Karen. Karen is extremely knowledgeable and a great story teller. I plan on taking the Revolutionary War Tour the next time I'm in NYC!
Karen , our tour guide, was amazing! Her passion for history made the time period come alive. She pulled together facts as she showed us sites, and artifacts, all the while sharing interesting anecdotal stories about Hamilton and Burr. As we came to feel like we were in the time period she wove their lives together in such an interesting way. We can't wait to book the Revolutionary War tour!
Karen was entertaining and knowledgeable, and the tour was a real pleasure. We even went on a wet, slushy, cold day and Karen still made the tour worth the walk.
Karen took the time to show us all the important places relevant to Hamilton over the course of 3 hours. The tour only had 5 participants so there was all sorts of time for questions and answers throughout the tour. Her knowledge of the subject matter was complete and she had a nice way of making it come together in a very interesting way. She was also careful to let us know when certain things she was talking about were not necessarily fact but gave us enough information to engage our own thoughts toward the situation. We will definitely take another one of her tours in the future. We highly recommend Patriot Tour to anyone visiting, or living in the area.
