The host Stacie was a well of information so yeah totally recommend it!
Our guide was an actor called Scott, he was friendly and informative and loves telling you about places or films or tv shows he likes that have been filmed in New York, traffic was a nightmare as 6th ave was closed but we did see a lot of good sites for example the Fire House where Ghostbusters was staged (real working place) and also highlight for most on the tour where Friends was filmed, he also takes you to Washington Park which we liked and then a few places he pointed out where celebs live,we got to see where Beyonce and Jay-Z live etc, this tour was quite fun actually and Scott was great too
The tour was brilliant - our guide was so enthusiastic and provided us with great facts about lots of films!
I would recommend this tour to movie lovers. It was fun, informative and our tour guide Roseanne was so funny and we loved it as a family.
My husband and I took our 14 year old granddaughter on this tour. We thoroughly enjoyed the commentary by a young lady. I am sorry I can't remember her name, but she was very knowledgeable and had humorous commentary. I highly recommend this tour to anyone from age 13 to 75. Thanks for an enjoyable time!!

Excellent tour and a very knowledgable guide. A big fat 10 from me!!!
Very informative tour, our guide Gary was highly entertaining and really knew his stuff. He ran a little quiz game on the bus between stops handing out prizes as he went. It was great fun and a little shocking to see the reality of the places we see on TV and Movies, like how small the Friends building actually is. We thoroughly enjoyed this tour.
Would really recommend this Tour. Very professionally run -the Guide ,Gary was excellent.as well as showing you all the movie sights ,is also a great and informative way to see the city.
My family has always enjoyed spending time in NYC and it is often our "go to" city when we want to get away for a few days. When we learned that our son was going to be deployed to Kuwait for a year beginning in January, we wanted to do something special for him and his girlfriend that could include all of us. He requested a few days in the city and I thought that they would enjoy the NY TV and Movie Sites Tour. As it turned out, we all loved it! The tour was well organized and provided a great overview of the city, especially for folks who may not be familiar with streets and avenues or the various neighborhoods and most iconic sites. The bus was very comfortable and there was a good pace of getting on and off to get up close and personal with some of the more famous sites - and the tour was jam packed with so many sites and film clips that it definitely would satisfy the most demanding tourist. Likewise, tour participants were told well in advance of approaching any site so that there was always time to see it, and the accompanying film clips enhanced the experience by jogging our memories or piquing our interest in seeing the film or show. Our tour guide, Deo, also had the right mix of friendly informality and knowledge of the sites, and films in general. He was appropriately cynical in the expected NYC vibe, but respectful of us older folks. Whether genuine or not, he exuded passion for the movies and shows and was a very upbeat and congenial guide. For anyone interested in movies I would highly recommend the tour although it may not be suitable for children who aren't familiar with the movies and shows.
Really loved this one! We loved seeing the locations of many of our fav movies and tv shows. We did this on our first full day in NY which was great because we found our bearings. Lots of fun!
I booked this tour from the UK. Viator staff were excellent and really helpful. This was my first trip to New York, with my 16 year old daughter. I would highly recommend this trip. Our guide was brilliant, she was so knowledgeable about New York and the various movie sites. We all got treats and a pack so you could look up the movies sites which were covered ( the whole place is like a film set). It was a real fun day... the best part for us was singing the theme tune to friends... the whole tour joined in!... We loved it... and I have since recommended it to other people who are going. In terms of the booking arrangements etc... this was really easy, I printed off the voucher which Viator sent, and when I got to New York, made a local call to the tour office to confirm my attendance. On the day It was a simple matter of showing the electronic voucher.
