Travel back in time on the Washington & Hamilton in New York City "Secrets of the Past" walking tour in Lower Manhattan.  This informative and entertaining tour is led by Bruce Racond, a licensed New York City tour guide with over 20 years of experience.

New York City, the most iconic city in the world, is home to more than 240 years of rich American history. Few stories are more powerful and moving than that of the partnership between founding fathers George Washington and Alexander Hamilton before, during and after the American Revolution.

History comes alive as you find yourself in remarkable and little-known Lower Manhattan locations meaningful to the lives and partnership of Hamilton and Washington and the dawn of the United States. Relive the first reading of the Declaration of Independence and the revolt that followed, snoop into the Culper spy ring, honor the American soldiers in the Battle of Brooklyn, and applaud Hamilton's achievement of the Compromise of 1790. You will stand in awe by the tavern where Washington said farewell to his officers, celebrate at the site of Washington’s momentous inauguration, gain insights into the duel between Hamilton and Aaron Burr, pay your respects at the final resting place of the Hamiltons, and much more. You'll hear stories, letters, speeches and see paintings of the time. This is an immersive tour for fans of American history and the musical Hamilton! 

Through fascinating stories along our engaging walk, you will learn about:

  • The earlier North American war that led to the epic Revolutionary War
  • The first New York reading of the Declaration of Independence
  • George Washington’s daring and miraculous nighttime river retreat
  • The lies and deception of Washington, the great “spymaster”
  • The splendid 18th-century chapel where Washington attended services in New York City
  • Hamilton, Jefferson, Madison and the Compromise of 1790 in the "room where it happens"
  • The letters behind the duel with Vice President Aaron Burr
  • The resting place of Alexander Hamilton and his wife Eliza …and so much more!
