This a fun tour and is perfect for those who are tired of walking or cannot walk long distances. You travel by air conditioned bus so that was a welcome relief in the summer heat. You get to see video clips of the places you see. Sometimes you pass the sites quickly so pay attention when he points the site out. We chose to sit up front and that was worth the extra upgrade, but others were allowed to move up the were in the back because people did not show up. You learn some neat trivia on this tour. A fun way to see movie and tv sites if you a are a pop culture person.
This tour was so much fun! My family and I had a brilliant time. Our guide, Scott, was awesome and very funny! So worth it!! :
This tour was great and the best thing about it was that we got 3 stops to get off the bus and the tour guide that we had was so good- she took everyones photos which was great for us as we went as a couple and it meant we were both in the photos with the iconic building etc. On the bus they play wee clips of the parts they are showing you in the movie/tv show which was also pretty cool. I would def recommed this tour.
Great way to see the city! Our tour guide was fun, funny and full of facts! If you love tv and movies, this is a must see!
This tour was amazing!
Excellent tour guide, very knowledgeable and funny. Recommended.
Our tour guide Amedeo was wonderful. This tour was better than I expected it to be. You make many stops off the bus to have your photo taken. It wasn't at all rushed and we saw many more movie/TV sites than I expected.
Great trip, Roseanne was a fantastic host, equal parts comedy and full on information.
We thought the trip was great and covered all the bases. One of our many highlights in NYC.
Max was fantastic! Really made this trip a lot of fun, showed us some much of the city linked back to movies and shows. Max made this tour extra special!
Gary was an amazing guide. He was funny and smart. We really had a fun time taking this tour.
