Highly recommend this tour with Bruce. My mom and I went and despite it being freezing and windy we had such a good time and learned a ton. Perfect activity before you go see Hamilton the musical!

I have never enjoyed a tour as much I as l did this one. Bruce was entertaining and very informative. He painted a picture of what it was like as the colonies evolved into a nation led by these two great men. I do a lot of walking tours both domestically and internationally

If every history class were like this tour, kids would be crashing the gates to get in. Bruce is a gifted speaker---he tells a story that's loaded with intriguing details. And the sites together with "show and tell" pictures bring all it alive. Worth every single penny. Go.
