My friend, nephew and I thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Michael. He was an excellent, knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide! We loved hearing the history and stories about several of the theaters. We also enjoyed hearing the ghost stories for a couple of the theaters. It was also great to meet Tim, the owner, at the end of the tour. I... More

Last week, my daughter and I had the pleasure of experiencing a private tour of the Broadway theater district with Amanda, who herself is an actress and has an expert knowledge of theater lore, history, and current events related to Broadway. We thoroughly enjoyed our time with her! She was so interesting, and it was fun to share our love... More

Amanda was our tour guide and she is awesome. You get to see many theaters (from outside) and your guide will keep you entertained with stories about the theater itself, its past history and eventually the ghosts who still roam around. Amanda showed us on a tablet many pictures and clips, which was a nice add on to the light... More

My friends and I had a great tour experience with John. He was very friendly and personable, and also gave us some recommendations on what to see for a show that evening. I learned all kinds of great history tidbits about Broadway and found the visual aids on the tablet helpful as well. It was a nice, intimate, and relaxed... More

The tour from start to finish was totally enthralling. Tim really knows his stuff and was a pleasure to have for our guide. The tour was an excellent experience. I would really recommend it to anybody coming to New York City!

Mikey was passionate and knowledgeable. He gave us a great little history lesson on both the theatres we visited and the evolution of theatre itself in New York. It was great to know more about those places when we went to see shows in them later in the week. Highly recommended. Sam (Melbourne) and Jess (Paris).

We learned so much about Broadway - Joe is an excellent Tour guide, very knowledgable and personable - we felt like we were touring with a friend. An added bonus, we got to meet a fellow actor of Joes.

A group of friends took Mike's tour and all agreed that it was time well spent. Even though I'd studied the devopment of NYC theater in grad school, it came to life with our guide's expert tutelage. Loved the ghost stories and the info about how the buildings changed.

We had a great tour with Broadway Up Close. Our tour guide was a stage manager and was very knowledgeable about the theaters and some of the behind the scenes inside stories that happen during the run of a show. This tour gives you insight into what the theaters were like in the early 1900's and which have maintained that... More

You could tell she loved Broadway and everything about it. She made didn't just read off a script of what we were seeing. she shared her personnel... More
