This walking tour was amazing! My 11 and 15 year old daughters loved it. The headsets worked great; we could hear every word. We learned so much more about real life Hamilton, the play, and Miranda's music. We highly recommend this tour.

Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the
Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a
quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of
downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the
city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the
American Museum of Natural History, which has been
welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for
over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center,
