We have enjyed this tour around the Boradway theaters! The guide, Tim, was extremely informend about the histoy of the theaters. The heatpads, which he gave around, were especially helpful in the cold winter.

We loved our walking tour of Broadway up Close. The tour was full of interesting tid bits of information that were fun to learn. I am a theater junkie and a wannabe so it was perfect for me and my daughter...The weather plays a role in the tour so I was glad I dressed warm.. Would recommend to anyone... maybe not toddlers or little ones :)

My husband and I took this tour on a cold Sunday morning, but Tim is such an enthusiastic and fact-packed tour guide that we barely noticed the temperature. Clearly this is the way to go if you want an intimate, tailored tour of Broadway. Tim is an actor and a teacher, and those skills transfer wonderfully on this tour. It felt like we were getting the real scoop on behind-the-scenes information about the history of this wonderful area. There were even ghost stories! I especially liked the way he incorporated his tablet (iPad?) into the talk. He used it to pull up historical pictures of the theaters and people that he was talking about, so we got to see exactly how it looked then and were able to compare how it looks now. (A couple of times he'd position us so that we had the same vantage point from which the picture was shot and then hold up the tablet so that past and present were side-by-side. It was one of the most innovative and effective uses of an iPad that I've ever seen.) The picture of us in Times Square at the end was an unexpected bonus. I cannot say enough good things about this tour. Well worth the price!

Thanks Tim, the tour was so packed with fun facts and stories the time flew by even though it was a cold night. We really had fun. Since we were going to see Wicked that night Tim even told us behind the cutrain facts for that show. It was a great walking tour - I would highly recommend it!
