I love the Revolutionary War period. This tour was so informative. I love learning about how New York looked back then and how its size has evolved over time. Karen was an amazing guide and gave us so much insight into the politics of the time period as well as what it looked like to be a colonial of the time.

WOW. The tour guide and owner of the tour is amazing. She makes the history fun and alive. She is engaging, informative, and entertaining. There were at least 2-3 times where she told historical stories, and then we recognized how similar events were happening now! History repeats itself! There really was not that much walking, all around the financial district, but frequent stops.
