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!

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!

You should add locations from recent movies like Dr. Strange or Avenger. Some of the locations aren't so well known, like the Sanctum Sanctorum on Bleecker Street.
