“We learned so much about Broadway even though I grew up in Manhattan. Well worth the price.” – atbourey (TripAdvisor)
“Amada was great! We’ve been to Broadway shows so many times and never looked up at what rooms etc were above the theatres. We heard fun ghost stories and besides that, a ton of Broadway theatre info. This tour was well worth it and we’ll look her up again when we come back.” – heatherandshelley (TripAdvisor)
“Loved the tour, Amada was excellent- loved her energy and enthusiasm. Learned a lot about Broadway theatre.” – X3444AIcindyl (TripAdvisor)
“Our guide Amada was awesome. Very enthusiastic and knowledgeable. Learned quite a bit about Broadway Theatres, shows, history and hauntings.” – Dalestorm (TripAdvisor)
“I had the chance to visit New York during the new year and decided to take the walk. The guide was surprisingly an actress who love broadway and have so much knowledge and enthusiasm for this place. She showed us the way the theater was constructed and told us about all the myth and the production, actress and history of the broadway in NYC. Such a sweet experience to have guide who is an insider. Totally a worthy experience in NYC.” – LeNgocTram (TripAdvisor)
“SUUUUUPER TOUR!! Amada, the founder and owner of New York Broadway Tours really knows anything and everything about Broadway and tells it enthusiastically in interesting, fun stories and shows incredible pictures. And, since she is a singer, she can sing all the songs: pretty amazing!! I actually do not know too many Broadway shows (I only watched 2 Broadway shows in my whole life and listened to the music of maybe a handful others) and only went out of interest, but the tour inspired me to put at least 2 or 3 Broadway musicals on our short list for our next outings: Miss Saigon, Wicked & probably Chicago. Thanks a lot, Amada!! I will definitely come back and join some of your other tours!!” – LoveofMagic (TripAdvisor)
“Amada was very pleasant and knew so much about the theater district. Looking forward to going on the Wall Street Gilbert and Sullivan to Hamilton walking tour soon. Thanks Amada!” – Russ F (TripAdvisor)
“Simply awesome! I had such an amazing time discovering Broadway with Amada! She is passionate about so many subjects, I couldn’t have had a better guide. Don’t hesitate a second to book one (or more…) tour(s) or to go on a private one! Trust me, you won’t regret it a second! But you’ll sure regret not to have done it! ;)” – Beatrice (TripAdvisor)
“This was the most fun I’ve had in Times Square ever. Amada took our group all around to the Broadway theaters, giving us inside scoops of performances current and past, back to 100 years ago. She clearly knows a great deal about Broadway history, and gives it to her customers in a manner that builds excitement as the tour progresses!” – TourGuideStan (TripAdvisor)
“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.” – Cherryl Lichtentchal (PEEK)
“The tour guide was wonderful. It was informative and entertaining.” – Carrie Raymond (PEEK)
“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 (PEEK)
“There is so much history to share about the early days of the Village. Our guide was knowledgeable, friendly and patient while entertaining us for an hour and a half. The Village is such a cool place.” – Mary McGee (PEEK)
“I had a great time!! Our tour guide Mike was soooo enthusiastic, knew soooo much about Broadway Stars and Theaters, both present and past, often engaged us, and mostly answered questions by additionally singing a song of that particular actor/musical. He also told us about different ways to get (relatively) cheap Broadway tickets which I immediately looked into after coming home. And, he inspired me to buy 3 Musical dvds, one of which I already watched on the evening of the tour – well, it’s not live entertainment, but at least it’s a Broadway Musical!! I unfortunately had to leave the tour early since I had a ticket for the matinee of an off-Broadway show, but I am sure to take the tour again to hear the second half of Mike’s story and e.g. visit Sardi’s restaurant which they did when I had to leave. Thanks a lot, Mike & New York Broadway Tours!! PS: believe it or not (I can hardly believe it!!) I followed Mike’s instructions and just won the lottery for this afternoon’s performance of CATS!! SOOOO EXCITED!!” – H Gold (Goldstar)
“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)
“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
“I love your wonderful spirit! We had a ball on our tour with you in August.” – Florence Priebe

“It was so much fun! You learn so much about Broadway and the history of New York and you learn a lot and it makes you appreciate the history of Broadway more and what people do. She gets you to sing, do jazz hands, and it was really REALLY fun. You’ll enjoy it! Defintely check it out. You have to do it. It’s totally worth it.” – Mattea Arndt
“We came from Washington, DC overwhelmed with the whole Times Square experience and because my daughter loves musicals more than anything we were totally thrilled that there was a tour that focused just on the musicals and even the tour guide shared my daughters enthusiasm and excitement for the kind of things that she likes and so it made it more exciting for us to walk around and learn the history. The whole experience was very memorable, we enjoyed it. Thank you very much. -Eve Pines

“Amada is a wonderful guide. Our group of three 60 year olds and my 85 year old mother, all from South Louisiana, had to cut the tour short because of the cold weather, but we thoroughly enjoyed the first half of the tour. I will definitely sign up for one of Amada’s tours next time I’m in NYC. She is a great teacher, singer and leader!-Beth Hebert
“The New York Broadway tours was amazing. It was very informative.

“If you’re coming into New York and you want to get a real backstage tour of what it’s like to know about Broadway and it’s true?organic-ness?and it’s history then you should take this tour. Sing your way through New York on the street! The greatest thing is that nobody even cares it’s just a lot of fun. So come and join the tour!”-Cena Block
“The whole tour in itself there’s little pieces of New York City and how it all began and where the theatre really started. I think that is the whole point of the tour. You really get a full view of where theatre came from and how it was introduced to the city and why Broadway is known as Broadway. It’s all those little facts that I think make it really fun!”-Jeremy Block
“Whether you are a musical theatre head or artist yourself this is the tour to come on! There was stuff I didn’t know and I thought I knew just about everything about the theatres in New York. So I?definitely?recommend it and I’ll probably do this again!”?-Taye DelVal

I had a blast!?The very best part was the singing. Hands down! More singing!”

We went on the New York Broadway Tour on July 19, 2013 with our two teens. This tour was a present for my daughter who turned 16 and her life ambition is to perform on Broadway. Amada liveliness and wonderful sense of humor made walking in over 100 degrees a lot of fun. She went out of her way to include all of us and made us feel really special. She had a wealth of knowledge about Broadway Theater history and it was interesting to hear about the ghost stories as well. She even had my son & husband singing in the streets by the end of the tour! We had a wonderful time! We wanted to personally thank Amada for all her advice on the theater business. She answered all our questions with great enthusiasm. She gave my daughter a lot of tips because Amada is an Actress in the business as well. Amada great love for theater came through in her tour and we learned a lot. Most importantly..Amada is the most honest person you will ever meet! I paid for our tour by PayPal and I forgot to tell my husband that I already paid for the tour. At the end of the tour he paid Amada again plus a tip. Amada tried to reach me on my cell all day which I left back at the hotel and she did not leave the city until she reached us to give back our tour money that we paid twice. We were really impressed! We would defiantly recommend this tour!?-Samuela Iozzo
“I have always wanted to sing In His Eyes with someone- today I fulfilled that dream!”?-Emily Couch
“You were such a fun tour guide. That tour is still one of my favorite memories from my trip.”-Elizabeth Ulrichs
“Amada was wonderful. She really made our group feel special and kept us happy and full of energy! The kids loved her and we had a blast. Complete with a song and the reading of The Raven. I could not have hoped for a more special night for our family. It really completed our trip and I am ever grateful to you for your help in making our trip such a grand success. I can’t wait to bring the family back to New York and perhaps do another tour! We will definitely recommend Amada to anyone of our friends traveling to New York City! Again, thank you so much!”-Thomas Camarillo
“Thank you we had a nice time and a gorgeous evening.”-Laurie Schroeder
“Wow, What a fantastic tour!!”-Betsy Houvouras
“I just got back from the ghost tour in Greenwich Village. The guide was excellent, vibrant and informative. Especially the area around the Washington Square Park was creepy. One lady was actually able to catch a ghost on her camera. She showed us the image of the shadow that was in a form of a human. I recommend this tour to all of you who are looking for a fun and excitement.”
-Olga Horvat, Author of “Paranormal Pooch”
“I took a group on the ghost tour hosted by Amada. She was fantastic, knowledgeable and effervescent! I would definitely go again. She made the entire exprience a spooky good time!? ?-Frank Calo
