What you'll do

"Alexander Hamilton and Revolutionary New York" is a 60-minute culture and history tour that brings to life the exciting Revolutionary War period in the history of New York City and Hamilton's role in the events of the time. *The format of this experience is a virtual walking tour. The story begins with young Alexander's move to the New World and his enrollment at Kings College and culminates in the duel with Aaron Burr and the lasting monuments to Hamilton throughout the city. As the tour proceeds, we relive the story of the founding of the US and America's first capital--New York City, and along the way we visit Fraunces Tavern, Federal Hall, Hamilton's home The Grange, the William Bayard house where Hamilton died, and Aaron Burr's townhouse and carriage house. As an added bonus, the tour is layered with references to the iconic "Hamilton" the Broadway musical as we point out lyrics and scenes that correspond to the sites we visit. Guests do not need to prepare or bring anything with them to the tour, which concludes with a question and answer session.

I am sure that many people will enjoy this experience, but the delivery was a bit flat for me. There was some interesting information, and Matthew was very nice and easy-going. I believe that I was one of the beginning groups to do the experience, so it will probably continue to improve the more it is booked.

Every Hamilton buff or just those who enjoy the soundtrack will relish this educational, fascinating, well-produced, and accurate presentation about Hamilton's background and NYC. Enjoyed the maps, historic photos, and historic facts in particular. Great and knowledable narrator and researcher!

While there were some interesting anecdotes (the story of Hercules Mulligan's intel keeping Washington from being ambushed/captured was fun), I mostly felt like Matthew was just reading his notes, and I didn't pick up a whole lot of information I didn't already have. Not a super deep dive, but I admit, I've visited some of the sites he talked about – so if you're new to Hamilton (the man or the musical), it may still be a good fit for you!

As someone who has never seen the musical Hamilton, i wasn't sure if this would speak to me. However, as a history buff, and someone who especially loves Revolutionary-era period pieces/history, I can honestly say that I enjoyed it immensely! Matthew, through his careful research and meticulous delivery, shares history, the musical, geography, and more! I highly recommend Alexander Hamilton in Revolutionary NYC to everyone!

This lecture style experience was very interesting, Matthew is exceptionally knowledgeable, paying attention to detail throughout. We learnt a great deal through this, just wish we had a NYC trip planned to see it all in person! Thank you Matthew!

Overall, I thought this was a very worthwhile experience. I learned a lot and will go out of my way to visit as many of the sites shown in the experience as I can, It would be helpful if this experience remained available in the future, to see again, prior to a future visit to New York City.
