Boring and annoying actors making stupid jokes. The tour did not live up to the brochure ... few street performances could do with more ... and it could have been a bit more exciting !!

If there was more performance, it was more fun. People who are not good English speaker is boring....

it was entertaining to watch the reaction of the people on the sidewalks when one of the actors started performing. Some of the jokes were corny but all in all it was very entertaining. I think the next time I would do it at night!

I would imagine that children 4-6 years would enjoy the liveliness of the tour much more that the other tours that do NYC. Children that age probably wouldn't "get" some of the jokes,but none of them were inappropriate and... More
