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!

A must for every theater enthusiasts! A great historical journey of Broadway past and present done with music. Raina, our tour guide was both knowledgeable and fun. A very enjoyable 90 minutes.... I actually wanted it to last longer and hear more. That was the second time I "danced" on Broadway! 😀

Our guide was Rory and we really enjoyed the tour. Based on the temperatures we had (it was like being in a freezer :-)) Rory gave us a really very interesting and perfect insight into Broadway's theatre world.If we would recommend the tour? Definitely!

Raina was very personable and helpful on answering questions and giving you a visual of what the Broadway scene is currently and was like. She makes you feel that you are experiencing everything yourself of the stories and history she... More

We had a great time on the Walkin Broadway tour. Very informative, super entertaining, and a great way to see Broadway's theater district. Our tour guide Rai-Rai was a lot of fun and really made the tour a fun and grand experience. The headsets made hearing and understanding everything really great and simple, and the recorded interviews with Broadway stars... More

What a fabulous time we had learning about the history and interesting facts of Broadway. Raina was our tour guide and was terrific! We laughed and danced and sang our way through the tour--loved it!!! She also gave us suggestions for our next trip, which we look forward to trying hopefully soon.

We had a great time on the Walkin' Broadway Tour with Rori (actor/singer) on our October Trip to NYC! It was all we hoped for and more. Rori danced and sung us thru many of the Broadway Theaters in the compact Broadway district. Even tho there were only 5 of us in the group, we donned headsets for a partly... 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.
