A friend and I took the Shubert Brothers and Beyond tour with owner Tim in early April and we had a blast! This was our second in-person tour, and I have attended a few virtual tours, and I cannot wait to get back out on the streets with BUC again! In this time when Broadway is dark, Tim really made me feel like a part of the theater community again. I didn't want it to end! Your trip to NYC is not complete without a Broadway Up Close tour!

The Hamiltour was so much fun for both adults and our kids! It was a perfect mix of theatre and history. Our tour guide, John, did a great job and shared alot of great information and stories. I would definitely recommend Broadway Up Close and I would definitely book another tour with them!

I reached out to Tim, the owner of Broadway Up Close, to request a tour about Disney's history on Broadway as part of Disney project I am working on for my 50th birthday celebration. Though it is not something he normally does, he agreed and did a fabulous job. Tim presented an almost two hour long tour for myself and a friend. He was enthusiastic and provided well researched information among interesting stories. I truly appreciated his willingness to do something special for me and highly recommend his tours.

I had a great time on the Hamiltour with Tim. I've done other tours with BUC and each one has been so fun and informative. I also highly recommend his virtual tours! I got to learn about historic restaurants in the theatre district and love having a list of places to explore when I get back to the city.

This was the highlight of my week and I left the tour on a happiness cloud!!! Tim Dolan gives a superb tour! His passion for theatre and his impressive and extensive knowledge of all things theatre is astounding and inspiring. I learned so much fascinating stuff about the theaters I've been going to for years and places in the Broadway neighborhood I never noticed were even there. Is expert eye and his caring nature and his infectious enthusiasm makes for a truly wonderful experience!!! It's like being in the middle of a live theatre performance that travels, perfect!!! Can't wait until April to do the Shuberts tour next!
