    Loved this tour - fun and my daughters favourite

    We really enjoyed this tour as it was fun and very informative. Our guide, Scott was great, very approachable and funny too. He clearly had a passion for TV and movie and when we saw a film set, he quickly stopped the bus and we all ran to see what was happening. We just missed it but got to walk through the set and I even got to see Carrie from Sex and the city's apartment.

    Again any time!

    A very well-organized tour. Our tour guide had many infos that he conveyed very witty. All sights that you expect to see all over town where shown such as the apartment house from Friends, the fire department from Ghostbusters and the house from the Cosby Family. Thank you this was not my last tour with you!

    Ideal for getting to know the city for the first time

    This tour was definitely a success as the beginning of our New York trip. It was ideal in giving an initial orientation and offered a very dynamic introduction to the city. We had a super friendly guide and with very many interesting experiences to share. All-in-all, a super tour. We had a lot of fun.
