A recent review by Monica on TripAdvisor

As a long time listener to the Bowery Boys Podcasts in Australia, I was excited that my NYC holiday coincided with a Bowery Boys walking tour. The Broadway tour was fascinating. Jeff, the tour guide, was a mine of information and stories of the histories of the district. The two-hour tour was just the right amount of time and the still photos passed around during the tour enhanced our appreciation of the history of Broadway.
