Kevin was our very knowledgeable tour guide and he did not leave any details out about the steps of Alexander Hamilton! We learned about the humble beginnings of New York City and the impact the Dutch had on the founding of this city. We were walked through the Revolutionary War and introduced to General George Washington and his relationship with Alexander Hamilton. Please note that Kevin, our tour guide, made history come to life with his stories and walking us in the steps of some of most well known patriots. We learned so much about Hamilton and Kevin pointed out the events and words we needed to watch for in the play. We will book future NYC tours with this tour group! Prompt, thorough, and spends every moment taking you back in time!
You're guaranteed to enjoy this history lesson!

Kevin Draper led our group in a 2 hour private walking tour; "Hamilton and the Founding Fathers. Kevin was an expert on the subject and knowledgably engaging in his storytelling. In fact, we could have spent all day with him and felt like we had completed a college course on this important time in our history. I've recommended him to everyone I know. We'll be back for more, the next time we travel to NYC. Debra Main, Gainesville FL
Gilded age and American history tour

I took 2 private tours - one with Dan another with Kevin. Both were amazing. If you want more than a superficial narrative then these tours are the way to go. For sure if I come back to NY, Kevin would the first one for me to call. Contrary public bashing of NY, NY is a wonderful city.
The most fun and informative history lecture for all ages

This is a great tour for anyone who loves American history and the founding fathers. We booked it as a prelude to the "Hamilton" musical. We got much more out of it than expected.

Our guide Billy is dynamic, engaging, joyful and knowledgeable. An intensive history lover himself, he gave a fun yet comprehensive lecture of American history around the independence war, with vivid stories and anecdotes. His personal interest in music and architecture also benefited us a lot while we strolled through the Wall Street and talked about building styles, jazz, the Hamilton musical, etc. He also read us some letters and articles with his baritone voice, completely in Shakespeare style. What a wonderful treat!

My 17- and 18-year-old sons totally enjoyed this tour also. Thanks Billy! We'd love to come back for a sequel.

We had a tour with Kevin. I can’t say enough about how much we learned and enjoyed this tour. We were a party of 6: 2 adults, 3 teens and one 11yo and he managed to interest us all. He has a depth and deep understanding of history and skillfully weaves the stories together. Next time we come ti
NYC, we will do another tour (or 2) with him.

The day before we did the Met Art tour with him. Fantastic as well…
