It's a Hit
Chris was a wonderful guide. He really knows his Broadway history and shared very interesting experiences of what it is like to be an actor in NYC. He was friendly, enthusiastic (obviously loves the theater), and easy to talk to. This tour was lots of fun and gives you another view on the Broadway experience.

We were fortunate to have Jennifer Andres as our guide. She was energetic, enthusiastic, knowledgeable and attentive to our needs. We had a great time with her. She obviously loved her job and is ideally suited to help attendees of her tour fall in love with the area. The tour company did a great job in selecting the restaurants and food options. Each restaurant was prepared for our arrival and all were gracious hosts. Our compliments to the tour company and Jenn. We highly recommend your company and guide Jenn!
