"If you love Broadway, this tour is a must! Sam, our guide, brought a perfect combination of knowledge of the history of Broadway and the current inside scoop on what's happening and how to get the best deals. Sam kept us entertained by sharing interesting stories from her own personal and professional experience. My daughter and I loved this tour!"

"We are a family of four spending a week in NYC. We all enjoyed the stories our guide, Bobby, told during the 2 hours walk in the theatre district. We had expected to also get inside the theatres, but this is not included in the trip. Anyway, Bobby made it a memorable experience which we highly recommend. My kids had long discussions with Bobby on the different actors and the roles they have played in various films and plays. Bobby was very helpful in providing details on ticket discounts and additional information after the tour. I am sure you will all enjoy hearing Bobby tell about his own experiences auditioning for roles in major plays!"

"This was a great way to learn about the history of Broadway. Allie was vibrant and was a fount of information. If you want to know the history of the various theaters, shows, and even where starving actors like to eat cheaply, this is for you. Allie, our tour guide, was friendly, engaged, and very knowledgable. She even walked into a light pole while answering a question from my daughter. Not every guide is willing to take one for the team like that! If you are curious at all about Broadway, this is for you."
