We took Hamilton's Wall Street in the frigid cold (for us South Texans!). It was a wonderful, not-to-be-missed experience. Jimmy Napoli and his cohort, Greg, were passionate, enthusiastic and swept us up in their narrative of Hamilton and his exploits. Of course, there were references to the hit musical, as well. It is such a delight to see history made so interesting and inviting. Napoli has a great sense of humor and is an accomplished punster. In fact, this tour was even fun to book, thanks to Ted and the puns he exchanged with me during the booking process.

Although most of the original buildings have long since disappeared, Jimmy and Greg took us to the few remaining relics of Hamilton's time and to places where once stood famous buildings, and spun an enticing tail of the man on his mission. They top off the tour with a trip to a tavern, where they spent a great deal of time just talking and making every one of us feel like we had known them for ever and are fast friends. It was the highlight of the trip!

I can not wait to take other tours from these guys!

We went on Hamilton's New York Walking Tour. We were expecting Jimmy Napoli to give the tour, but his associate Gregory showed up instead. We were not disappointed! Gregory was very knowledgeable and entertaining. It poured throughout our tour, but we were so enraptured by Gregory's stories that we barely noticed the wind and rain. I would recommend this tour to anyone - especially those who are Hamilton fans.

I took the Hamilton tour of Harlem and it was unbelievable. It was like having the most brilliant professors at our fingertips. Not only were the guides hilarious, brilliant and kind, they were also so generous with taking the time to answer extra questions as we walked. This is clearly a company run by people who love what they do, and don't do it for the money. It's extremely affordable. i will definitely use them the next time I'm in NYC - Literary Tour sounds good to me....

Jimmy Napoli delivers a wealth of information on Hamilton and his contemporaries, the history of New York and our country in its earliest years with energy, enthusiasm and a whole bunch of very corny jokes (several of which I'm certain to steal). An added bonus is that many of the blocks in the Hamilton Heights section of the city are quite beautiful and relatively quiet (think tree lined streets with lovely turn of the century town houses) I've been to the city a thousand times but never to Hamilton Heights but I'm already looking for a reason to return.

Whether your a fan of Hamilton or of US History (or both!), you'll love this tour. Jimmy is a spark plug of energy and a font of knowledge, and has a clear passion for his subject and the art of giving a great tour. He and his fellow guide Peter kept the 3+ hours fast moving and fun, with great cheesy jokes that adults and kids loved. Washington Heights is a great neighborhood too. Make sure to arrive early to see the Morris-Jumel House, and book the 2 pm tour at the Hamilton-Grange house for a good bookend.
