No one should miss this who is coming to New York City, and especially to the Theatre District. We were a group of all professional theatre people (from the boards of the Women in the Arts & Media Coalition and the League of Professional Theatre Women) and we were in shock and awe at all the stories we didn't know...

My friend and I took the Act I tour on Monday, December 1 with Theresa. What a terrific experience this 1.45 hour tour was. Since it was just the two of us, Theresa was able to answer our questions, give us insights into the things we were interested in knowing about, and tailor the tour experience to our level of...

We took the BUC Walking Tour Act I on the Friday after Thanksgiving. The group consisted of our family of 3 plus another woman (talk about nice, small size!) We had Joe as the tour guide and he was FABULOUS!! Joe is a B'Way actor himself having done on stage work for Les Mis and several other productions. His enthusiasm... More

I've taken plenty of tours in my life, but none of them could come close to the Act One walking tour. Kipling said, "If history were taught in the form of stories, it would never be forgotten"--and our guide, Joe Spieldenner, certainly proved that! Wherever we stopped, he had a fascinating story about the theater before us: the actors, directors,... More

My husband and I did the Act 1 tour. Because we were the only two people on our tour, we had a private walking tour of Broadway. Drew was a wonderful guide -- friendly, informative and knowledgeable. It was like walking around Broadway with your pal. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone looking to learn more about the... More

We were fortunate enough to have Tim Dolan, the owner of the company as our guide. I have lived in New York my whole life, though on long Island not the city, and found this tour to be alot of fun and very informative. Tim is the quintessential tour guide. Enthusiastic, passionate, informative, high energy, and just a really nice... More

Just returned from New York where we joined Tim for Act II of the Broadway up Close walking tours. Once again with his iPad photos and great tales of Broadway lore, Time flew by as we walked around more of Broadway and learned of its fascinating past. A great way to see and learn more about the area. I look... More

Tim is passionate about theatre and is a gifted story teller. Do this tour and you will gain a deeper insight and appreciation for every hard-working member of the Broadway community, past and present. Loved every part of it.
