Linda was very lively and informative which made the walking tour a fantastic experience! I thoroughly enjoyed it and recommend it to anyone who wants to learn about Times Square and theater history.
It was well worth the two hours. Tour guide was very informative, being an actor on Broadway, he certainly knew his stuff.
It was a very pleasant and informative tour both qualities provided by the enthusiasm and commitment of our tour guide, Brigid, to convey her love for music and the theatre.
We really enjoyed this walking tour with an actor who filled in a lot of facts about the Broadway history, and we learned about various shows that are currently in theaters. It was well worth our time!
Ethan, was a fabulously knowledgeable guide! We thoroughly enjoyed this tour and highly recommend it before attending a Broadway play!
We truly enjoyed our walking tour of Broadway! Our guide, Tom, was informative, fun and an accomplished Broadway actor! Who better to fill us in on the rich history of the Broadway theater district. Thank you!
Loved this tour. Sam was wonderful ! Highly entertaining and still informative. Great tips for tix to Broadway shows and we had a blast at the Stardust dinner she showed us on the tour.
Our tour guide for this tour was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. She was an aspiring actress, so knew some inside and interesting stories. We would recommend this tour.
We really enjoyed our NYC Walking Tour of Broadway given by actor Remy Germinario! Funny, insightful, informative!
This was fun and very interesting. Tour guide Bobby and Remi were fantastic. My daughter and I are Broadway "geeks", but learned a lot of Broadway history and background info we never knew. The tour guides were personable and knowledgeable. Recommend it (and them) highly! They offered to stick around to answer any further questions after the tour. Would like to have heard more of their personal experiences, but we had to dash off to see a show at the end of the tour, so couldn't stay to chat.
Fun tour of broadway with Tom. Great knowledge with singing thrown in. Absolutely a must go for theatre lovers.
This was a great informative tour. We heard lots and enjoyed our guide. Worth doing if interested in broadway and theatres and the history.
This was a fantastic tour and well worth it. Our tour guide was fantastic!!! We took this tour on Friday July 5 at 2pm. I can't remember the tour guide's name but he was EXCELLENT. The heat was excessive but our guide was so interesting and funny that the almost 2 hour duration went by in a flash. I absolutely recommend this tour to anyone who is interested in the behind the scenes stories of the stage. I'm so sorry that the tour guide's name escapes me at the moment because i would really like to congratulate him for such a job well done. We took 3 viator tours while in NYC and his was by far the best.
Rent was great fun and knew a lot about broadway. It was raining hard but he made sure we were under shelter as much as possible. He was very entertaining and we are looking forward to tracking his future state career. A great tour.
Our tour guide's name was Ethan, he was absolutely fantastic and gave us a sensational overview of Broadway and it's history. The 2 shows that we saw Dr Jekly and Mr Hyde + Motown The Musical took on a whole new significance as a result of Ethan's very informative tour and discussion.
Please notify him and tell him that Geoff and Heather, the 2 Aussies will always remember that day.
This was a great tour with a very interesting guide... Pity he couldn't do anything about the weather, we were a bit frozen outside...

I believe On Board Tours is who does this one as well. The guide we had for this was named Tony and he was awesome. and extremely knowledgeable as well. He gave a great tour around the Broadway district. We learned so much with him about what its like to be on Broadway, We learned what it as like back as far as 1920's. Very interesting. Very glad I took the tour, love Broadway!!!
Tour guide Tom was truly exceptional. Very personable and accommodating with the tour participants, not to mention his knowledge about Broadway history and culture was impressive. Tom's background as an actor certainly added tremendously to his presentation. I can't say enough about my family's experience with this tour. We thoroughly enjoyed it. Way to go Viator!
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed this tour in early June and found it very worthwhile. The young woman who was our guide so sorry I can't remember her name!, was knowledgeable and full of enthusiasm for her subject. I like that she waited for all the group to be gathered round her before giving information. So often guides forget about the stragglers and they miss important facts. I think the only disappointment was not being able to go into any theatres. But we understand why this is not always allowed and it didn't distract from a very enjoyable walking tour.
This tour is really worth doing it - the tour guide knew what he was talking about and showed some interesting places.
Very interesting tour. The tour guide had been in Broadway shows and was very entertaining! It was good to hear a few of the stories about the history behind some of the theatres and of Broadway itself.
The description implied that it was back stage although on second reading, it says behind the scenes...but I think that wording is misleading. Our guide Sam was lovely but we were disappointed overall in the tour. Just walking by lots of theaters...she had some interesting stories about the shows that played in those theaters. BUT, we thought we were going back stage to some of them since Monday most of the theaters are dark. If you've never been to NYC/Broadway, it's a good overview. If you have been...it's not worth the 35 per person to just walk around. Especially if it's 90 degrees.
