Step into the scenes of your favorite movies and TV shows with this guided tour of New York City’s famous filming locations. A guide helps you to recognize the buildings, shops, landmarks, and parks that have been featured in famous shows and movies such as ‘Friends,’ ‘Seinfeld,’ ‘Girls,’ and ‘Spiderman.’ Plus, TV buffs can get the inside scoop most tourists miss by exploring the sites with a guide/local actor.
  • Explore filming locations on a TV and movie-focused tour of NYC
  • A guide/actor shares behind the scenes details and NYC trivia
  • Avoid public transport and relax on a comfortable coach bus
  • Upgrade for priority boarding and seating on the coach
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, 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. 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. Plus, visit a local park that features prominently in The Mindy Project and rom-com classic When Harry Met Sally.

You'll also 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 Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. 

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

This was a very entertaining and informative tour. Our tour guide, Max, was engaging, energetic, and great with questions from the group. I would highly recommend this tour not only for TV/Movie enthusiasts, but for anyone spending a limited amount of time in the city. It was a great way to see many sights that we might not have otherwise have had time to visit.
A Great Adventure in Manhattan!

This was a fantastic tour showing many locations of movies as well as television shows! The exteriors of buildings are amazing when you realize the "Friends" apartment building is absolutely tiny compared to how it loos on television.Our guide (Gary...I think :) was also a working actor who was able to give us real insights into the actual workings of the entertainment industry in NYC. There were little prizes for correct answers to his Trivia Questions and a great time was had by all!
Awesome tour !!

This tour, unfortunately, didn't do it for me. Our tour guide was fun and informative, but the format just made the tour too choppy for me. We rode on a very comfortable bus from one familiar location to another, and that was ok. Our guide provide facts and information which was pretty good as well. Between locations you watch video clips of the locations you visit from the movie or television show associated with the location. A private tour may have been a better option for me, not certain on this one...

Great tour for TV and movie lovers. I fell in love with New York from the movies and TV, I visit it at least once a year. Seeing familiar spots and hearing the trivia about it all was a lot of fun. You stand a good chance to be guided by an actor or see a celebrity. As a big Seinfeld fan I was happy to find out that the original Soup Man still makes the best soups in the world. The tour ended in front of the soup place, I patiently waited, couldnt make up my mind and took 3 soups at the end, got a fruit and a chocolate with all of them! All three soups were amazing. Dont miss the Original Soup Man if you are in NYC.

Our guide Ben was excellent!. He was full of knowledge and was great with our children, who were full of questions. We saw allot of the city as well which helped us get our bearings. We looked at allot of other tours before selecting this one. We also used the Coupon for McGees which was a bonus! Thank you for a great tour!
