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.

Meeting point

We meet in front of the George M. Cohan Statue at 46th Street and Broadway. The statue is of a man holding a hat and a cane.


Does the tour go inside theaters?

No, this is primarily an outdoor tour that gives you a firsthand insider’s perspective of the industry. You may go inside buildings such as the Edison Hotel or New York Marriott Marquis.

How much walking is there?

We cover about 1 mile at a leisurely pace, and the walking route is fairly level.

What is the rescheduling policy?

We understand plans change. You can always change your tour 24 hours or more before you tour. We offer a 100% refund up to 24 hours prior to your tour start time. 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?

Plan to show up 15 minutes early. The tour starts promptly, and you may not be able to catch up if you arrive late.

What if it rains?

Our tours run rain or shine, so please check the local forecast to plan. In rare cases when we have to cancel for extreme weather, we’ll offer you the chance to reschedule or give 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.
