New York TV and Movie Sites Tour

Throughout the years, New York City has made a starring turn in hundreds of films and TV shows, from classic comedies to modern melodramas. See some of the most recognizable real-life scenes on this TV and movie location tour. Your tour begins in Midtown Manhattan, where you’ll hop aboard a comfortable coach and meet your guide — a local actor and expert in New York movie history. Upgrade your tour for priority seating to sit in the first four rows of the coach.

Then it’s lights, camera, action! as you cruise around Manhattan to see dozens of recognizable TV and movie locations. Stop outside the famous Friends apartment to relive the glory days of the ‘90s sitcom, and see the spot where the cast of Glee performed ‘I Love New York.’ Cruise by the pub that inspired McLaren’s on How I Met Your Mother and a local park that features prominently in The Mindy Project and rom-com classic When Harry Met Sally.

Pass by the bar where Michael Keaton brooded in Best Picture-winner Birdman, a hotel seen in American Hustle, and the tiny soup restaurant made famous by Seinfeld. You’ll have stars in your eyes as you see many other city locations from titles like Person of Interest, I Am Legend, Ghostbusters, The Mysteries of Laura, and The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. 

After winding throughout Manhattan, your 2.5-hour tour ends back in Midtown.

Dejlig tur med en skøn humoristisk guide. Vi så en masse kendte steder og det fungerede perfekt at der blev vist små filmklip fra stederne, så man lige fik en relation.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2015

Tour moved at a fast pace especially at the beginning, but had 3 stops later on where you could get out and see some local sites. Gary led us on our trek and pointed out as many sites as possible. Bus was comfortable. Earl did a great job maneuvering the demolition derby that is Manhattan traffic.
