Mom's view: There are a number of walking tours through New York's Broadway district. We would definitely recommend Inside Broadway Tours. Their tours teach you not only about the theater district the way it is now but also about the area the way it was long before there were any theaters there. Even if you think that you already know everything there is to know about the area, you will still learn things. The tour guides are all involved in the professional theater themselves and are pleasant and informative. They will share not only historical and current information about the area and shows that have played in the past or are currently playing but also about their own lives and what it is like to work in the theater. Once you've met your tour guide, you will always feel like you've got a friend in the theater. That is one thing that makes this tour special.Our tour guide, Samantha was especially great and let us in on a bunch of great ways to save money on theater tickets. However, the tour is a lot of fun on the whole, and the hour and forty five minutes will go by in a flash. Inside Broadway Tours are open to all ages. We would recommend them for adults and children who are able to stand up and walk for long periods of time and do not get bored easily listening to people talk a lot. We especially recommend the tour for those children and/or adults who are interested in theater and/or history. The tour is reasonably priced especially compared to some others. It is $35.00 per person and is free of charge for children 12 and under. For more information or to book a tour go to http://www.insidebroadwaytours.com/broadway-tour
