"The time flew by and we couldn't have asked for a better value for the money. It
was also such a treat to have someone who is in the theater business give us the
jillr142 ( New York City, New York)
"So surpassed our expectations ~ full of fun facts, hilarious delivery and
personally engaged with all of us! Thank you Remy was a great tour and I can't wait
to be able to say "OMG! He was our tour guide" when you win your first Tony!"
Leanne M (England)
"I am so glad I managed to convince my boyfriend to come on this tour with me! I am
a massive theatre nerd, he is more of a history buff! Luckily this tour was the
perfect mixture for both of our passions, and I think we have converted him to the
joys of jazz hands and high notes. Cannot give high enough praise to our guide
Christoffer J (No Location)
"...We had a real Broadway actor as a guide, really cool. Greg was great, he talked
clearly, offered lots of interesting facts behind the different plays and theatres,
he even pointed out the best way to get discounted tickets and what shows to watch."
"We set off with our guide, Linda, a New York native and actor in a snowstorm on a
Saturday afternoon. She was fabulous!!! and made us forget about the dreadful
weather. The group was really interested in the business of the theatre and Linda
gave us all insights that only a theatre pro could have known about "
I am a HUGE theatre fan and this walking tour exceeded all my expectations. Sam our
Tour Leader was very informative and fun. She answered all my questions (I had a
"I was "encouraged" to go on the Broadway Tour by my wife. Didn't expect to enjoy
it, but was very good indeed. like any tour the guide Bridgid can either make or
break. All I can say is Get Bridgid!!! Very bubbly personality and had time for
"Sam's forte was to include her up close and personal anecdotes that really added to
the enjoyment of this experience. I would recommend this tour to anyone who loves
cecilyo968 (New York City, New York)
"Sam was an amazing font of knowledge which she shared so pleasantly with us all
that we felt we had travelled her professional journey along with her. And she got
us safely across those crazy streets!!!!"
"Having a life filled with theatre yet never being to New York, Broadway was a
must... I thought I knew Broadway before I went, but I was clueless! I definitely
left wanting to know more. If you love theatre, you will love this tour."
"Brigid, our guide is the "Lullaby of Broadway" She was very informed-kept us moving
and entertained with great quips above Broadway. She answer everyone of our
questions with patience and succinct answers See Inside Broadway Tour soon because I
got a feeling we are going to see Brigid on the Great White Way before we know
"Happy, funny and kind she knew so many information from the inside, she is an actor
herself, and gave us a true sense of what it s like to be an actor in Broadway!"

The Inside Broadway Tour was by far THE BEST TOUR I've EVER been on! Our tour guide
Brigid Kegel was filled with enthusiasm and knowledge and provided us with
interesting and funny stories and myths of Broadway. We were so engaged in the
experience, we didn't even get a chance to take pictures!
Daniel H (Rotherham, United Kingdom)
"I think that these types of tours can be tedious with the wrong type of person
giving them, when they have no interest in the subject or just regurgitating facts
they've remembered from a sheet. Brigid however was really enthusiastic,
knowledgeable about question we in the group asked her, and she really made us all
Chlorisa ( Richmond, Virginia )
So, we weren't really "feeling the vibe" about this tour as it was the night of our
first Broadway show and we didn't want to fall asleep during the tour :/) well that
wasn't the case at all! THIS IS THE BEST TOUR YOULL EVER GO ON! Our tour guide was
Brigid! She showed us all the theaters- talked about their history- and she was
comical and focused! There's only 1 thing that I don't like-- the tour ending!
Gardenbob (Rapid City, South Dakota)
"We had the best time on Remy's tour. He had the perfect blend of humor and
information. Sometimes your guides can seem too over the top or overly rehearsed -
not Remy! He was polished and genuine. We learned so many great things in this
tour...and it was even engaging for an active 10 year old, which is HIGH praise."
Michael G (Michigan)
"In the Broadway area with lots of people congestion, Linda kept an eye on all of
us, and also made sure at the end of the tour that we all knew how to get wherever
we were headed rather than leave us to our own devices to figure out how not to get
lost. Linda is a performer herself and loves broadway."
"To be honest, I’m not a huge Broadway or New York fan, but the wife is, and this
vacation was for her. However, I had a great time. Greg Uliasz was extremely
informed, friendly, and enthusiastic. His extensive knowledge encompassed, not just
Broadway and off-Broadway theatre, but he demonstrated a broad range of general
knowledge of New York City, celebrities, and New Yorkers in general."
"STUPENDOUS… This was my favorite part off my trip to ny (well this and the Lion
King). My tour guide Remy was amazing. You could see the passion for theater in his
face and you could hear it in his voice! "
Carmen C (Cologne)
"Remi turned out to be the most sympathatic, entertaining, educating and funny tour
guide. I guess that’s why he does the Broadway tour. And he should keep doing it!!
He really is in his element there."
Shari H (Germany)
We would highly recommend this tour to anybody. For theatre-lovers it is a must-see.
And even for non-theatre-lovers the tour is amazing!
Will we be able to inside Broadway Theaters?
We may have the chance to see former theaters that have been converted. However, we will not
be able to go inside the backstage areas of active theaters due to legal reasons. Don't
worry, our guides practically live backstage so they can describe for you what you would
expect to see, hear and feel. Just ask them!
How much walking is there on this tour?
What happens if I am late and miss the group?
There is between 1 to 2 miles of walking at a moderate pace. If mobility is an issue
please arrange for a private tour. Please dress appropriately for long distance walking
and for the weather.
Does the tour happen during the rain or snow?
It is important to arrive at the tour starting location at least 10-15 minutes prior to
the start time, as we do start the tour promptly. It would be unfair for the others if
we need to wait for those that are late. We cannot guarantee you'll be able to find your
tour group if you are late.
Does the tour go inside theaters?
We only cancel the tour during extreme weather conditions. Otherwise the tour goes on.
Please do check the weather report and be prepared for the weather.
What is your cancellation, rescheduling, refund policy?
No, this is primarily an outdoor tour that gives you a first-hand "inside"
perspective of the industry. You may go inside buildings such as the Edison Hotel or New
York Marriott Marquis.
Does this tour accept Passes?
You can cancel a tour up to 48 hours prior to your tour date without penalty and receive
a full refund. Also prior to 48 hours of your tour date, you can reschedule your tour
without penalty. Since we keep the group size small, tour spots are limited.
What is the tipping or gratuities policy?
Yes. You'll need to make a reservation with your credit card. No charges will apply IF
you show up with a valid Pass. You can cancel 48 hours prior to your tour without
penalty. You can always reschedule your tour. This allows us to better manage our group
size and make the tour experience better for you.
Tips are always appreciated by our guides, but never expected. They should
be given if you believe your guide did an outstanding job, and further, if you as an
individual want to demonstrate your appreciation to the guide for that job well done.
