“I love hearing about the history of NY and the theatre. NY has such energy! It was the first time I looked at how beautiful the building facades are…they are works of art like the NY Library and the Met Museum. Next tour will be in the summer.” -Madeline Cassano

Our group was small and very intimate. Just 4 of us. The guide was informed and very personable. My friends and I are avid theater goers and this was right up our alley.

“We had some time before our Broadway show, and we decided to try the New York Broadway Tour – and it was awesome! More fun, personal, and inspiring than a typical tour. My daughter is an aspiring performer and loved learning lots of “insider” details about the theatres and performers. We had such a great time and also a lot of laughs. We recommend this tour without hesitation. My daughter came home energized about her performing arts aspirations.” – Dan Dulleba (TripAdvisor)

Amada is great! She’s full of so much Broadway information and talented toooo!!! Thanks Amada for a grand time!!!!

“Thanks again for a very interesting tour! We can’t wait to be back in New York city and see another Broadway show!” – Joannie Tardif

“I searched around for a Broadway tour because I basically came to NYC for the theater and I figured it would be a good investment! Amada, the tour guide, is wonderful and so sweet. She has the same enthusiasm as I do about theatre! In saying that, I did find that I knew a lot about what she was teaching us about already. For the average NYC tourist, this would be a perfect tour about the basics of NYC theatre!! The tour is a good length, though it did go about 20 minutes longer than expected, and Amada takes you on a route that somehow avoids most of the hectic crowds so kudos to her! Do keep in mind that you do not go into any theaters, but you do get to see plenty of them. Go support this new business and the wonderful Amada!” – Maddie O

“My mom and I had a great time!” – Shannon Hearns

“Amada Anderson was a fab tour guide and really went out of her way to show me the sites and tell me stories about Broadway there is somebody who loves her job. Amada really did inspire me. well worth the money and I would pay more for this tour.” – Carlotta Rose

“Amada is an excellent tour guide. It’s obvious that she has a passion for musical theatre and is knowledgeable about the topic as well! It was great to visit the theaters and learn the history of them along with listening to Amada sing popular Broadway songs. I definitely would recommend this tour to both seasoned Broadway viewers and newbies!” – TripAdvisor Reviewer

“Awesome tour guide, great tour!” – Janae Catt

“The tour guide is SO knowledgeable about Broadway Musicals that the tour was a sheer delight! She has a background in Musical Theatre and her knowledge is deep! The best tour I have ever done. And I have done quite a few! Forgot to mention her GREAT singing voice that you get treated to! Definitely a MUST do for locals and tourists alike!” -Priti Saldanha

“We just took Amada’s Broadway Tour. We thought it was wonderful. We did some singing, dancing, and jazz hands!” – Sarah Cimperman

“I loved it! Amada is doing a great job and she’s got a really great voice and she knows a lot about Broadway history. I really recommend it. Two thumbs up. It was fun!” – Bruno Lamarre

“We just got done taking the tour with Amada like Hakuna Matata and we had an awesome time. You get to hear Amada sing all the awesome Broadway songs and she’s got a great voice. You get to interact with other people in the street, she get’s everyone involved and it’s awesome.” – Lisa Arndt

“A friend and I took the tour on a Sunday. Amada was on time, really knows what she is talking about, provided a weatlh of information that we didn’t know (and we live here!). Interestingly enough, there were only the 2 of us so we really got to ask about everything we wanted to know! There were supposed to be others on the tour and she did wait some minutes and call/text them rather than just take off without them. I think this shows her professionalism and wanting to make sure that people weren’t left behind. She made the tour fun, despite the oppressive heat, and encourages people to have ‘jazz hands’, sing along, etc. Not to mention that she has a great voice! I recommend taking the tour- don’t think you’ll be disappointed!”– Sonia
