    We moved to NY two months ago. There is so much going on here and I like to learn about the city as much as possible. I really enjoyed the tour. Our guide was very nice and knows. I recommend this to everyone who is visiting NY.

    Theo was a good guide He was friendly and patient. Had good info and interesting personal observations. My sister and I are elderly and walk slowly. Found myself wishing the company had given him a flag on a pole as we almost lost him a few times.

    A perfect little trip just around Broadway so not too challenging and at a very easy to complete pace. Chris, our guide, was funny and informative. I thought it was great that he made sure that his audience, even from outside the country, understood the cultural references. His passion for the theater and acting community was evident in his stories. I learned some fascinating things, even as a frequent visitor to Broadway. Highly recommend.

    Joe did a great job. He had lots of good information & kept the group very engaged. But please get him a microphone so he doesn’t hurt his voice having to talk over trucks, cars, radios & the general noise in NYC!

    My son & I visited NYC for the first time with theatre as our focus. We did this tour our first full day there and it was great! We really enjoyed the bits of history and personal stories our tour guide shared with us. I believe her name was Abigail, she was so bubbly and personable! Thoroughly enjoyed by both myself and my 18 yr old son. She walked a nice slower pace as well which was nice if that is a concern for anyone.

    Tim Dowd, creator, writer, editor and producer toured with us through Broadway and Times Square. As true New Yorker, Tim has deep insights into the history of these sites. He shared many little stories with us and let us feel the hills and valleys of an actor. His voice was loud and clear. Therefore, he did not need a micro at all. A trailer of Threeway, starring Tim Dowd can be found on IMDb.

    A whistle stop tour of Broadway, Lots of history and facts told by the fab Abigail who told us a lot about her past as well as taking a real interest in the group. We stopped at lots of places on the tour and Abigail told us how to get cheap tickets with the 2 for 1 offer and also the lottery. We are lucky enough that tonight we got to see Phantom Of the Opera and will be seeing Six In a few days time. If your in New York a trip to the theatre is a must. If your in New York now check out the 2 for 1 deals on until 25/9/22
