Amazing tour

To be honest, I’m not a huge Broadway or New York fan, but the wife is, and this vacation was for her. However, I had a great time. Greg Uliasz was extremely informed, friendly, and enthusiastic. His extensive knowledge encompassed, not just Broadway and off-Broadway theatre, but he demonstrated a broad range of general knowledge of New York City, celebrities, and New Yorkers in general.

Do yourself the favour

It was really lovely to go back in time and hear the stories of Broadway and the actors journeys. You can’t always get the full story on your own.

Great Tour!

Frank was a great tour guide and did an amazing job of explaining everything about Broadway. From the area itself, to the shows (past and present) and even the history of the theaters. Given is theater background he was able to be engaged and answer all of our questions.
