Walkin' Broadway™ has the visitors to Times Square dancing in the streets!This is the best of both worlds: A personable, knowledgeable guide AND the music and recorded narration of a first class audio tour.There is no better place to hear the facts and stories of Broadway’s history, architecture, music, and humor.While personally guided through the Great White Way, the entire tour is broadcast to your own headset so you can follow each beat of the music and hear every word. The music is direct from the Broadway cast recordings. The recorded voices are recorded exclusively for Walkin’ Broadway by some of the greatest legends, performers and luminaries as well as the backstage guys and gals who make Broadway the center of the entertainment world!

Great tour and tour guide.

My daughter and I were the only people on the tour which was nice for us. Krystle was very informative and we appreciated the tips on how to get discounted show tickets.

I took my two daughters, ages 9 and 12, with me on this tour and even they thoroughly enjoyed learning the history of Broadway and the theater district from Krystle! She was very informative, cheerful and made it fun.

Any theater enthusiast will find this tour fun, very informative and entertaining. Our guide, Krystle, a NYC actress was articulate, professional and extremely knowledgable about Broadway past and present. This approx. 90 minute walking tour in the heart of the Broadway theater district includes many brief stops at points of interest carefully selected to fascinate and educate. Krystle's narration was... More

Krystle was our guide. She was interesting, fun, and knew what she was talking about. She even had some insider gossip. I don't know a lot about the Broadway scene but she and the tour made it really come alive. I'd recommend doing this walking tour before you see any shows; she also hands out a sheet about where to... More

Walkin' Broadway tours are a must-do for theatre afficionados. We had the pleasure of Rori's company as our guide. She regaled us with theatrical anecdotes and historical trivia, as well as first-hand accounts of life as a member of the acting fraternity. Rori is highly knowledgeable and engaging, and ensured at all times that our tour felt tailor made to... More

We met Rory at "the actors Chapel"... recieved our headsets... off we went! Rory along with other celebrities via recording, delighted us with stories and experiences from the beautiful Broadway theaters we visited. We even learned a trick or two on how to snatch tickets for performances! Overall it was great experience! Wear your walking shoes!

We took a Walkin' tour of Broadway on Saturday as part of a school trip involving 17 kids. Our tour guide Krystle spoke eloquently and was very informative as she took as around a variety of New York's theatres. The set up is really great as you wear a headset for the duration of the tour, with Krystle's commentary interspersed... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
