Leo was an excellent guide! We had a group of 12 which was perfect. During a very hot day, Leo provided good shaded spots for stopping areas as well as sitting areas occasionally. His information was through an earpiece provided by him. He had video segments as well on his ipad. He was most knowledgeable of the history of the area, as well as Hamilton and Hamilton's peers. I've seen the play twice; and now would like to see it again with all the new information I learned!

Leo’s audio/visual setup was by far the BEST we have ever experienced on a tour! He was knowledgeable, prepared, and thoughtful. The headsets allowed you to hear everything he was saying, and the photos and music enhanced the experience. It was the perfect balance of the Hamilton Broadway musical, history, and humor. Highly recommend a tour with Leo!!!!

Chazz did a great job following the order of the show and tying in actual sites that we saw. It was a great history lesson. NYC truly doesn’t get enough credit for the Revolution. It was great that we were able to go inside Federal Hall which is where George Washington took the oath of office as our first president. Got to see many other sites where Thomas Jefferson had been…and of course the many sites where Alexander Hamilton had been including his final resting place at Trinity Church. We saw the show the night before and highly recommend that order. It was a group of 15 so not so big and we were all given ear pieces so could hear everything. Loved it!!
