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!

This is a must do tour for anyone to get a knowledgeable in-depth look into the Broadway and Theater district. 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

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

Wow, you said it all! And coming from a theatre buff too. It was a good idea to stick close to Raina - she sure can sing! We are very proud of her abilities and you can see how it takes real talent to bring the many elements of Walkin' Broadway together. Broadway always has more to tell even after... More
