Breakfast at Tiffany's, pre-train-wreck Mel Gibson's Ransom, Home Alone II, Love StorySerendipity are just some of the 40 locations.
Amy was our tour guide and was so hilarious. She kept us entertained as we went place to place. I liked that we could get out and experience some of the places rather than just driving by. I had such a blast, I would definetly do it again and recommend it to others. I saw so much of the city that I would never have seen on my own. Defintely worth it!!!
Gary, my tour person was great. He kept everything evenly paced and was a wealth of knowledge. I saw so many sites that I would not have found on my own. It was great to have three breaks; walking around the "Village" was my favorite. Driving through the meat packing area really gave you the flavor of how different the city can be.
The other review is obviously put out by the company as the tour we had was the tackiest, most unprofessional tour we have taken. Normally we do this type of tour independently as we don't like being herded like cattle but for the sake of time we decided to give it a go and it very much reinforced our preference for travel without tours such as this. A rip off.
Whether you are a die hard Sex and the City fan or not. You will enjoy this unless you are a "stick in the mud". In that case you probably don't watch SATC. Forget "Friends" or "Will and Grace". If you want to see those then go to where they are filmed...Hollywood. This was fun despite the first snowfall in NYC this year and temps in the 20's with winds blowing at about 15-20 mph. Lisa was our tour guide. She is a stand-up comedian primarily and a SATC fanatic and tour guide. Actually she's not a fanatic, she's crazy as a loon. Couldn't have asked for a better guide. Highly recommend not bringing the kiddies on this one. Older teenagers, sure. My wife owns the box set and was a must for our 10th Anniversary and Valentine's Day. The whole tour gives you this sense of "Deja Vu" as you see all of then locations used in the series. Definitely the funnest part of our tour.
