You'll get very fit very quickly as you practice the acrobatic moves to the music from traditional instruments (which you'll eventually learn to play yourself).

  • I have taken two tours with Vimbly and am looking forward to many more in the future! They have a wide variety of opportunities, many of which I would never have thought of doing. Both tours that I attended were well organized, interesting, and fun. I look to Vimbly for ideas and activities when I want to find something fun to do.

  • Used Vimbly 3 times now: booked a Knife Skills class at Institute of Culinary Education, booked tickets to Improvised Shakespeare (HOW DID THEY EVEN GET ACCESS TO THESE???), and booked tickets to an Improv show at the Upright Citizen's Brigade. Really simple and efficient way to find something to do and book it right away without ever having to pick up a phone. I like that you can search by date and also category.

  • As far as a rating, I'd absolutely give your site a 10. It's easy to use, easy to find whats upcoming, unambiguous and concise. It's something my mother could use without calling me seven times with questions. I've already pointed some friends to the site, and you can be sure I'll be using it in the future.

  • I already have recommended it to a friend! Several in fact. The site is such a good idea and I love how the people at Church Street knew we were coming and treated us like their own customers and not coupon redeemers. My girlfriend and I will definitely be going back there and are already looking on your site for what to do next weekend.
    Evan W.
