AJ was our tour guide and he was so fabulous! AJ was knowledgeable and fun - he kept our teen and tween kids entertained and answered all of our questions. It was no 'Piece of Crap' - take the tour and you'll know what I mean. Thanks AJ, Great Tour!

We were very pleased with this tour. Our guide, Cory, was very enthusiastic about his love for Broadway and was most informative. He had no control over the weather--it was bitterly cold! I would certainly recommend this tour to anyone wanting to appreciate why so many of us come to New York--the shows!

Fantastic little walking tour with super energetic and upbeat tour guide Allie spelling?. She made it a ton of fun and extremely entertaining. Also, for those who are wondering: there is actually not very much walking on this tour which covers only 2 or 3 blocks! So it is fine even on a hot day!

Very informative and very fun. Our guide, Steven, is working in the business, and had all kinds of insider information and fun facts. Highly enjoyable. We did the tour prior to seeing our shows and it really enhanced our experience.

A wonderfully informative tour. So interesting to hear so much about the neighbourhoods history as well as trying 5 different places to sample the food. The guide was unrushed and helpful all the time. Only negative for us was that the Somalian restaurant had neither toilet paper or hand towels in the bathroom! Would recommend th tour highly.
