About Amada

Hakuna Matata my name is Amada!

I am a licensed and certified world renowned Tour Guide and Tour Director. I love to sing, dance, act and share my love of history wherever I go.

In the 7th grade I was in a special choir that was selected to participate in a national tour of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s “Joseph and The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat” after getting bitten by the Broadway bug I continued performing and studying musical theatre all the way to obtaining my BA in Music and in Theatre from the University of Miami.

This led me to New York where I became a tour guide. I worked for a ghost tour company and then a year later started my own company that aligned more with my gifts. It’s called New York Broadway Tours. I also worked on Broadway for Disney as a tour guide inside the New Amsterdam Theatre.

While in New York I volunteered as a special events coordinator for Planet Connections Theatre Festivity for 5 years. This organization is the first eco-friendly and socially-conscious theatre festival in the world.

I ran a non-profit for 7 years called Thrill The World NYC which taught Michael Jackson’s Thriller dance for World Records and for Charity. I was featured on NBC’s Today Show & led the 7th annual Dance Parade.

And, I volunteered as a board member and chair of committees (membership and public relations) with The Guides Association of New York City. They are independent licensed tourist guides.

I am currently volunteering as the secretary to the National Federation of Tourist Guides Association and my husband and I run a dog walking company called Story Tails Dog Walking here in Auburndale. The running joke is he walks dogs and I walk people.

As on June 2020 we were blessed with a new baby and as of December 2020 I launched this company where I believe Tummy Time will take on a whole new meaning on our tours!
