Karen said at one point during the tour that she became involved in this program because she desperately wanted to take passionate, daring historical figures out of the staid boredom of the textbook and bring them to life once more. At this she succeeded! She delivered a pleasant, well-paced walk through downtown Manhattan filled with fascinating observations that brought fresh illumination to the events of the Revolutionary period. We saw historical figures resurrected before our eyes, their great triumphs but also their flaws and their foibles. Karen's style is both informative and enjoyable, she knows her material extremely well and presented it almost perfectly--which is no easy feat! She also offers a Civil War tour in the same area, and I am eagerly looking forward to the opportunity to take that next.

On a beautiful day, we participated in the walking tour of lower Manhattan. Karen, our guide, was knowledgeable and seemed authentically excited about New York's important role in the Revolutionary War. She explained the history of each area in great detail, and provided images of historical NY so we could have a frame of reference for the appearance and strategic advantages of certain areas. This tour was great and I would highly recommend it to anyone who is interested in New York's history.

I liked to think I knew quite a bit about Revolutionary Era and NYC. This tour showed humbled me. It was very informative. Those that enjoy history, you'll love it. My 12 year old who couldn't care less about history had a hard time being enthusiastic throughout the tour. The tour is all downhill making the walking easier than it otherwise could have been. Our guide was Karen who has done her homework to bring us an exceptional learning experience.

Karen is amazing and you can tell she loves what she is doing. She has done an incredible amount of research on New York and the Revolutionary War. From suppling old maps that showed how places/land looked "back in the day", giving you details on famous political names, and not so famous strong New York family names, to giving you history that you may not find in just one book, Karen is the whole package. I would highly recommend this tour for everyone interested in our country's history!

My 16 year old daughter and I had a wonderful walking tour. Our tour guide was fabulous. She made it interesting not only for me but for my daughter. She was enthusiastic and thoroughly prepared and knowledgeable with the history of the area. I would absolutely recommend this tour for anyone considering a visit to New York who is interested in history. Well worth the time. I would note that I had done this tour several years ago with my older daughter and had the same experience then. I would highly recommend this tour for anyone!

My husband and I really enjoyed our walking tour! We live in NY and have walked by many historic places and sites without ever knowing the significance - it was such a pleasure to learn about the history of this great City. Our guide was so passionate about the topic - her excitement was contagious. She was incredibly knowledgeable about the history - we can't wait to go on another tour!

The tour guide was knowledgeable and energetic about history and wanted to share her knowledge eagerly.

We will probably do the same tour next next time we are in NYC just because of the tour guide!!

As a trained historian who has conducted many tours myself ( though the Rev War is not my specialty) I can say enthusiasticly that my tour was excellent. We covered the subject matter thoroughly and the walking was not too strenuous. Well informed and pleasant guide.
