This is by far the best walking tour I have ever been on!!! Traveling is a big part of my profession and I take walking tours all over the world and have not enjoyed a tour as much as I did this one. Tim was our tour guide and was so full of energy, knowledge, charisma, and love of the theatre that I couldn't help but smile through the entire tour. I really enjoyed hearing about the history of each of the theatres as well as little details about performers I love to see!! I look forward to seeing what Broadway Up Close has in store for me the next time I'm in NYC. Thank you so much Tim and BUC!

We had a terrific tour with Tim Dolan. I read all of the previous reviews and was very impressed with the way it sounded. I emailed him to ask my questions and he was very quick to get back to me. When we arrived for our tour, he was already there. He was knowledgeable and presented the information in an interesting and entertaining way. He had an ipad, which he used to show us photos of the history of certain theatres. At the end of the tour, he took our pictures, which he then emailed to us. My husband and I highly recommend this tour. It is a fun activity to do, whether you see a lot of shows (as we do) or not.

oh man, where can I even begin!! Right from the first 5 minutes of this tour I knew it was going to be amazing because I learned 3 new and interesting facts about Broadway that I'd never known before. I studied musical theatre in college and I've seen a lot of shows in NYC over the past 4 years that I've lived here, but I was not prepared for the amount of awesome new information I would be learning on this tour. Tim Dolan led our tour and this guy is just SO knowledgable about Broadway. He knew so many great anecdotes about every theatre we passed! This is also a great tour for anyone who loves architecture because he pointed out all the old architectural beauty of each theatre and also had an interactive portion with old historical photos of the theatres from when they were built or renovated.
Tim is also just one of the funniest guys ever, so he made every single stop super fun.
The ghost stories were the best!
I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone who loves broadway, architecture, or theatre history!
I can't wait for PART TWO!
