Amazing Tour
I was lucky to have a nice small group with the roads pretty empty due to what's happening at the moment and performances being closed which meant we were able to go inside the entrances of the theaters.

Times Square and Broadway, a must see!
We had a great tour around Times Square and Broadway. Our tour guide Chris did an amazing job, telling us all about the history of this dynamic area and gave us some fun ‘insider’ information and tips about the theater world.

FAQs

Does the tour go inside theaters?

No, this is mainly an outdoor tour that will provide you with a firsthand insider’s view of the industry. The Edison Hotel and the New York Marriott Marquis are examples of structures where you may go inside.

How much walking is there?

We walk for approximately a mile at a moderate pace, and the ground is mostly flat.

What is the rescheduling policy?

We are aware that plans might change. You may easily change your tour up to 24 hours before departure. We provide a 100% refund up to 24 hours before the start of your tour. Within 24 hours of your tour, we would have incurred hard costs and therefore cannot allow rescheduling or cancellation without costs.

When should I get there?

Prepare to arrive 15 minutes early. The trip begins immediately, and if you come late, you may not be able to catch up.

What if it rains?

Our tours go on rain or shine, so please check the weather forecast before you go. If we have to cancel due to severe weather conditions, we will give you the option to reschedule or get a full refund.

Are gratuities included?

Tips are always appreciated but never expected. They’re a great way to tell your guide they did an awesome job and show your appreciation.
