Owner description: 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!

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

Our guide Sarah Summerwell is amazing! She made this tour come alive not only with her wonderful storytelling technique and knowledge but also with her singing and dancing down the street with my mom, who wanted to let loose! I highly recommend this tour -- and Sarah, specifically!

Our guide Raina was extremely knowledgeable about her incredible city's theatre district and fully entertaining while describing it! My husband and I are major theatre buffs and have seen most of the major shows on Broadway. This time we actually felt like we learned so much about the theatres themselves; who performed in them in the past; and a ton... More

The tour and Raina were delightful. Raina shared interesting back story and history of the area in addition to juicy tidbits about past shows. I have been to Broadway several times and completely missed great spots and landmarks. Having taken this tour will add more meaning to future visits. I highly recommend it!
