I’m a huge Hamilton fan already and Chazz added more depth to what I already knew. My family also loved the tour. We learned so much more about the war, life in those times and LMM’s creative and genius thoughts in the making of the play. Thank you for a fun and informative tour. We loved singing along too!
It was fun to walk around and learn about the importance of Hamilton and NYC in the Revolution. The guide was knowledgeable and fun although the tour took longer than advertised because of the cold. My kids loved it. Their favorite part of our visit so far.
This tour is a must for all die hard "Hamilton" fans. Chazz is most knowledgeable and intersperses portions of the show with his narrative. So meaningful to see the places Hamilton, Burr, and Washington really were. This tour made images from the show really come alive for my 15 year old grandson. I highly recommend including this on your next visit to NYC.
Chazz was our tour guide and he obviously loves all things Hamilton. His tour was full of humor, Hamilton songs, and interesting bits of information on the sights he showed us. Add to all this a furious thunderstorm and it was a memorable day!
Chazz is a GREAT tour guide: insightful, knowledgeable, humorous, and clearly passionate about all things Hamilton and NYC! I loved that he “put points on the scoreboard” for NY’s importance to the Revolution. I HIGHLY recommend this tour!
Chaz was certainly friendly and very knowledgeable, but this tour wasn't really what we expected. Since it's entitled the Hamilton MUSICAL Walking Tour I would have thought you would have let us enjoy the music a bit more. It was so frustrating that every time Chaz played a clip of the music HE SANG OVER IT in our ears. We would try to turn the music up to hear the song better and all it did was make him louder in our ears. That was really annoying to listen to by the end and disappointing that we couldn't enjoy the music more. Also, this tour was advertised in one place as a 1 1/2 hour tour and in another as a 2 hour tour . . . We were told right as we started that the tour would last THREE HOURS!!!! Now, he did ask if anyone had a conflict . . . and we didn't have a specific conflict other than the fact that it took ALL MORNING! We brought our 9 year old along because we thought that she would enjoy the music and could easily handle 1 1/2 to 2 hours for a tour...3 hours was too much! Now, before you say this review was written by someone who only wanted to hear music . . . that is not the case. Our kids ages 16, 13 and 9 enjoy history and loved our vacation to Washington DC and the tours we did there . . . one of the main reasons we did the tour was to learn more about the history of NYC . . . but again, 3 hours is way too long for a tour like this. . . even my husband and I were over it by the time the 3 hours expired. Chaz was very knowledgeable, we'll give him that, the information he gave was very thorough and we did like some of the new things we learned about the city and the story of Alexander Hamilton. . . this tour would have been much better if it were just under 2 hours and if we could have heard the music instead of his voice.
Our family of four (including kids aged 8 and 11 years old) had a blast with Chazz on this engaging and informative tour. We learned more about the play, New York, and US history. Just the right amount of walking vs standing, songs and stories. Would highly recommend to other Hamilton fans and NY visitors.
I loved the infusion of the historical facts with the perspectives of Miranda and Chernow. Chazz was highly organized. His system of of using radios and infusing the music made it so easy to hear every work in the midst of passing ambulences and honking horns. Made me want to learn more!
