Win a Guided Tour of NYC's Theater World

The response to Heritage Travel's "Reviews" contest has been thrilling! Registered members have been submitting reviews of heritage and cultural destinations and sites for a chance to win an exclusive New York City guided theater tour. And now, the contest deadline has been extended to May 1st.

The winner could be YOU -- submit your review today
Community members like you keep adding reviews every day. It’s exciting to see so many travelers contributing to this growing community by sharing their travel experiences. Each review helps inform and inspire other travelers, and once the new Heritage Travel site officially launches later this spring, your review could win you and a guest an amazing tour of New York City theater.
The tour highlights include:
  • A private performance by current Broadway entertainers.
  • A behind-the-scenes tour of Harlem's legendary Apollo Theater (you can even perform on stage!)
  • Tickets to 2 Broadway shows of your choice.
  • Privileged access to the New Amsterdam Theater.
  • A special visit to The Players, the theater world's most prestigious private club.
  • A private meeting with the president of the National Arts Club.
Personally, I’m a fan of both Broadway and musical theater, so winning this tour would be a dream come true. But as a Heritage Travel employee, I’m not eligible to win. But YOU are eligible. If you enjoy Broadway and musical theater, or are curious about what goes on beyond the scenes, I encourage you to submit a review today. This tour truly is a once-in-a lifetime experience.

Each review earns you another chance to win
If you haven’t submitted a review yet, now is your opportunity. It’s free to sign up and share your reviews - all you need to do is login (or sign up if you haven’t already), choose a destination or site, and submit your review. You can submit as many reviews as you like, and each one will earn you one entry into the “Reviews” contest.

A few people have asked about review length limitations. The limit is 2,000 words for each review you submit. This gives you a lot of room to share your experience; however, keep in mind that the winning review will be the one that best embodies the spirit of heritage travel: engaging, informative, and inspiring.

I encourage you to provide as much information as possible about the site or destination, such as recommended local hotels and restaurants, must-see’s, best times to go and other helpful tips.

Submit your review for a chance to win! If you haven’t signed up yet, sign-up for free today. And tell your friends. (We’re on Twitter and Facebook, too.)

Good luck, and keep the reviews coming!

If you have any questions about the contest, please see the Official Contest Rules.


  1. Where can we see the "Reviews" that all of us have provided in your Contest? Isn't this site about social networking and learning from one another? But I can't seem to find where all of the reviews are on the site. Please let us all know.

  2. Thank you for your comment! Making the submitted reviews visible is a top priority and you will be able to to see them soon. In the coming weeks, this pre-launch, mini-site will become more interactive in a number of ways. So stay tuned!
