What you'll do

Alexander Hamilton - Revolutionary War hero, Washington's aide-de-camp, member of the Constitutional Convention, author of the Federalist Papers, first Secretary of the Treasury - the list goes on and on.
Hamilton spent a good deal of time here in Philadelphia (some even with his short lived mistress Maria Reynolds), and we explore his life and the places here. We will meet a cast of characters along the way, such as George Washington, John Adams, Ben Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, and James Madison, among others.
Come join me on this fun filled tour into the life and times of one of the truly remarkable Founding Fathers.
We will be listening to 16 songs from the musical, so come and sing along if you know the words. If you haven't seen the play, this we be an excellent introduction!

My husband and I took our two nephews (8 and 10) on this tour last weekend. This was one of the few pandemic-friendly activities that appealed to all four of us, and I do think everyone enjoyed some aspect of it. However, it's much longer than it needs to be. The boys were losing interest pretty early on (despite loving both history and Hamilton), and we noticed other adults on the tour looking at their phones, so I don't think it was their age or just our particular group. I think an abridged version with (90 minutes or so) would appeal to most people, and I assume true history buffs looking for a lot of detail probably wouldn't choose a tour with a Hamilton theme.

Reid is sooo knowledgeable about architecture and Alexander Hamilton. My Hubby and I really enjoyed our tour with music from Hamilton. We can't wait to see the play =)

I couldn't have asked for a better guide! I've never seen Hamilton and was only vaguely familiar with the founding of our nation. This tour filled in all of the blanks with incredible story telling, humor, anda really thoughtful route. Loved how the songs really wove together the stops and how being in the location brought the history to life. Had it been a couple weeks earlier, I would enthusiastically book the sister Beer + History tour. highly recommend !!

We had a great time with Reid. My kids are big Hamilton fans. And they loved listening to the songs and learning some history. Reid was very patient with a bunch of fidgety kids. But they’ve been talking about all they learned today since we finished. Thanks Reid

Reid ran an excellent tour. The weather was not great - cold and a bit rainy - but his story telling kept my interest so I could bear the cold.
