Description

from Hamilton Tour
With the success of the hit musical Hamilton, we’ve created a tour to help people understand how an illegitimate immigrant finds his way to New York, remakes himself, and becomes one of our most brilliant, charismatic, and controversial founding fathers!

Walk in the footsteps of Alexander Hamilton through New York City’s oldest neighborhood, the financial district, and discover how this famous New Yorker has his fingerprints on nearly every landmark these streets have to offer.

Our adventure begins at Trinity Church, where Hamilton was buried as a result of one of the darkest days in American political history. Learn how Hamilton arrived in America on the eve of a revolution and quickly became one of the most influential minds of his day, only to be shot dead before his 50th birthday.

We’ll stop by Zuccotti Park and uncover how more recent revolutionary movements like Occupy Wall Street trace their roots to Hamilton’s ambitious plans for American prosperity. Next, we’ll learn how Hamilton’s role as America’s first Secretary of the Treasury ultimately led to the creation of the New York Stock Exchange. Across the street sits Federal Hall, where Hamilton looked on as George Washington was sworn in as our nation's first president and where he served in the first cabinet. We’ll then check out the two Wall Street skyscrapers that still stand as reminders of the epic feud between Hamilton and Burr, one emblazoned with the name of one of our more recent politicians and local celebrities, Donald Trump.

Finally, we’ll make our way down the first paved street in New York City to one of the oldest bars in town where Hamilton himself used to drink with George Washington, and we’ll raise our own glass to freedom and to Hamilton.

Along the entire route we will discover not only Hamilton’s history in New York but also how he came to epitomize the American Dream, created the modern world we live in today, inspired many of our wealthy leaders who continue to shape the city and world, and finally, how he wrestled with the questions of wealth, privilege, and power in ways that are just as relevant today as they were in the 1700s.

"Delhi - the secret mystique beyond the crazy Facade"

Day one in Delhi on my first trip to India as a solo female traveller. I booked the NY urban adventures at the recommendation of my flight centre travel agent in Sydney. We both agreed this tour sounded a bit more cultural and more than just temples. It was well worth every cent. My tour guide, Punita was so friendly, informative and shared so much knowledge about the complicated political and religious history of Delhi. I sampled an awful lot in 4 hours. It’s a great intro to riding the metro, it’s simpler than Sydney. Riding a Rickshaw, meandering the maze of lanes in the old city, the architecture is stunning. This particular NY tour is about the only way you will get to glimpse inside an Haveli and comprehend what it looks like behind all the ancient doors of the laneway maze. And the bonus is kite flying and a traditional Indian high tea...to me it was actually a feast of food. No dinner required after this for sure. And there’s more.., the Jama Masjid Mosque at sunset and Stop off at Asia’s largest spice market on the way home. My tour guide was a gem and I’m booking again in 12 days for another Urban Adventures tour when I return back to Delhi. Fabulous
