Nice to see the places they went but very badly organised and included a lot of walking!!!
This was booked as a surprise as part of my friends bachelorette party as shes a big fan of the show. Firstly be prepared to walk most of the tour, we were not with our high heels on. We were made to walk from the pleasure chest to carries house and then to the bakery, not too far however in 90 degree heat and 5inch heels, this was a challenge, especially when the tour states that taxi transfers are included between each of the four locations, not true. We only got a taxi from the bakery to the first bar, and then again had to walk between bars. The tour guide was pleasant enough, however this was the most awkward situation I have ever been in, he had no charisma and there was more than a few awkward silences.
The tour passes time, I wouldn't recommend though, mOney could be spent better elsewhere.
I have to say I was very disappointed with this trip. We booked to go on Thursday 23rd June. From the start you can see that it wad not organised. We met at Sushisamba and was told that we could sit in a certain area, to then be told that this area is reserved and can we move. We then found a empty seating area to sit down in. We then proceeded to the street were Carrie Bradshaw's flat was. We were met by a very irate resident who was not happy about us being there and our guide hiding behind a car while he explained how annoyed he was. We went to the end f the road for a cupcake where we were pick up in a car and taken to the venue of the rehearsal dinner to witness the manager telling off one of our guide as we were taking photos. The last and final venue again we were told we could sit down and then we're told to move by a member of the staff team as this was reserved seating. I feel that this tour was a waste of money and not worth the money. I wad so humiliated. It felt like a amateur tour and not one done by professionals. We were given cheap prosseco from the guide and was then abandoned by then. I went to speak to the staff to arrange for seating for the group at the last venue. The venues itself were beautiful. It just felt like we had turned up at each venue and was hoping to get lucky.
This 'tour' is not worth a penny and was very poor. Guides did not seem to have any arrangements with the places we visited. The desciption is misleading. We did not visit ant roof top bars. The 'snack 'is purely 1 cup cake. There is only 1 taxi ride, the rest is walking. The guides gave no input , simplg saying -this is carries house, the owner came out to complain about taking photos and was very u happy a tour had arrived this is is the sex shop the girls visited, this is where Carrie and Big had their pre wedding dinner. No tables were booked for us . You visit only 2 bars after the meeting place. Both are restaurants mainly so not ideal if you dont have a table as bar seating areas are small and reservations are essential. Budacan and Tao Guides had not booked tables but lead us to believe they had. We were asked to move by security from both placesour guides hadseated us. Embarrassing!
Save your money. Go to both restaurants independently but book a table!
This was by far the worst tour that we took. The guide showed up late, she was on her phone the whole time so there was no interaction. We went to a bakery for our first stop and then had to carry our cupcakes to the bar/restaurant. We only went to two Bars/Restaurant and the drinks were awful. The tour is way too much money and really not that fun. We ended up leaving the tour and going to a local pub and having the best time!! Do not waste your money on this tour!
