Ryan was a great guide! Interesting facts, good sense of humor. Pleasant tour and great hand warmers as a bonus! Too bad this tour doesn't take you backstage in one of the Theatres or show the rehearsal areas.

We took 2 walking tours with Carey- Hamilton and Ghostlight; both were very entertaining. Carey was knowledgeable and fun. Our teenage daughter was intrigued and had a great time. We will definitely sign up for another tour when we go back to NYC.
