Willing to Overlook Guide for Disney Portion of Tour

The guide was friendly but lack any in-depth knowledge of Broadway & NYC in general, especially when asked specific questions. Also showed photos on a small phone instead of an iPad (& not everyone in the small group had an opportunity to see all the pics), and lacked the headsets to hear him easily. The tour is advertised as the guide having "first hand theatre experience" on Broadway so I expected him to share a few anecdotes of his time, but he could only say his experience was as an Asst. House Mgr to 1 show a few years ago. We ended up at the Theatre 25 minutes early, and instead of filling the time with stories or info, after 5 minutes the guide just let us be so we all stood around and took some pictures of the lobby & waited for the in-house historian. The historian, Eric, was wonderful and patient; he and his teammate were fantastic in explaining all the props and encouraging us to respectfully try them on. This part was an amazing experience & made the tour all worthwhile.

Awesome tour and great info about Broadway and the New Amsterdam!

We didn't know what to expect but this was a really great activity for our family. We walked all around Times Square and learned insider information about the history of Broadway and Times Square, and interesting facts about different shows and performers. The New Amsterdam tour was awesome! We got to see what it was like behind the scenes and got to try on costumes from several Disney shows. Would have loved this part of the tour to be longer! Really great day!

This was a nice tour, but it wasn’t what I expected, especially in terms of learning about Disney. I thought we would go into more than one theater to learn about the history. We only went into the New Amsterdam theater. It was a lot of standing in front of the locked theaters and learning about our guide’s experience on Broadway. Again, it was enjoyable, but not what I expected.

Tour was great fun and our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly.

The walking tour was interesting and informative. Jason had some fun stories and was very open to questions of all sorts. What set this tour apart was the back stage portion. It was so incredible to be up on the stage and see how all of the sets and props are organized and hear about all of the trap doors and elevators.

So fun, informative, and interesting! Our guide, Colin, was very personable and knowledgeable. Trying on Disney costume pieces was a blast, and I can mow say that I have sung on a Broadway stage! (Bucket list...check!)
