I wish we would have know about Broadway Up Close Walking Tours on our other trips to NYC. The whole family really enjoyed the tour and Tim was so accommodating when we had some timing issues. Can't wait for our next trip to do another tour.

Excellent entertaining personalized walking tour. My 14 year old and 19 year old both enjoyed it thoroughly. Personalized touch by the owner was an added bonus when we had some timing problems. Totally recommend.

We had a blast with Tim on the Act I tour. He is fun, informative, and very knowledgable. I'm so glad we took the tour and we are SURE to be on the Act II tour next summer! Thanks! Gina

What a great tour. It was so interesting that I wished it was longer. Tim was adorable and knew so many neat and interesting things about the theaters. I highly recommend taking this tour.

WOW! What can I say?! I have been completely blown away AGAIN by Broadway Up Close! A few months ago my friends and I joined Tim for an Act I tour. After having such an awesome time with him on Act I we couldn't wait to book Act II! And let me tell you, it was a total blast, AGAIN!... More

My wife and I were visiting New York with our friends, including one that is a young aspiring actress.

We would highly recommend this tour for anyone interested in learning more about the theatre district. Michael was our guide and he was very professional and informative. We did Act 1 and would definitely book Act 2 the next time we visit New York. Warm, friendly staff :) Oh, and did I mention Michael was TERRIFIC!

Theresa was our tour guide and shared truly fascinating information about Broadway past and present. She was very knowledgable and personable--our group of 6 had a really good time. The adults liked it better than the teenagers. When we booked the trip we imagined we would get to see the inner workings (e.g. backstage) of a theater or two and... More

I've lived in NYC for 20 years but this was the first time I did a walking tour of the Times Sq. area. Broadway Up Close offers tours of the theater district that cover history, architecture, ghosts, and lore. For the first time in my life, I spent some time looking up on 42nd Street and not just elbowing my... More

Our family took the Act 1 tour last weekend with Tim and all thoroughly enjoyed it. We loved hearing the history and anecdotes and enjoyed every minute of the tour. Only complaint is that it was over too soon. We will be doing the Act 2 tour this week and are really looking forward to it.
