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!

Our tour guide Rori was a bundle of fun! She got us to sing and dance on Broadway!! I would recommend this tour for a Broadway enthusiast like myself, for someone who has never seen a Broadway show, and everyone in between. It was the best walking tour I have ever taken!!! Thank you Walkin' Broadway and Rori!!!

MANY Thanks Sophie and i'm so thrilled that you enjoyed the tour! Sounds like for 90 minutes YOU were the star on Broadway. Your reaction is just what we were looking for when we redefined the tour with the personal headsets and received agreements to play the music and attain those wonderful interviews with the stars of Broadway. Once you... More

My wife and I took our 13 year old grand-daughter to NYC for her birthday. First visit for all of us. A friend had recommended Walkin" Broadway, and our grand-daughter is a "theater girl", so the tour made sense. Thanks to Rori, the tour exceeded our expectations. She has an amazing knowledge of the theater district, past and present, which... More

My husband and I had a wonderful time walking Broadway with Rori. Rori was energetic, enthusiastic and very knowledgeable. We learned lots of fun facts about Broadway and the theater district. We were even treated to her singing. She has a great voice! I would highly recommend this tour.

My sister-in-law and I love Broadway and this tour was a great choice with an enthusiastic tour guide who entertained as she guided us around Times Square. There was only the three of us so negotiating the crowds was easy and the headphones helped hear her above the roar of Manhattan. Stopping at the beautiful theatres and hearing the story... 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.
