This was a very entertaining and informative tour. Our tour guide, Max, was engaging, energetic, and great with questions from the group. I would highly recommend this tour not only for TV/Movie enthusiasts, but for anyone spending a limited amount of time in the city. It was a great way to see many sights that we might not have otherwise have had time to visit.
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 was a really fun tour . Our guide Chris was really fun , told great stories and did a legendary trip !! It was a lot of fun. Thanks you !!
Scott, our tour guide was very knowledgeable and made our tour fun. The bus was very comfortable and the bathroom was very clean.
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!
We really enjoyed this tour. Our guide Max was great and so knowledgeable. He made everyone very welcome and comfortable.
Our 3 day trip to the BIG APPLE was GREAT!!! Loved the Movie Tour with a very knowledgeable guide. The Bette Midler and Christmas Spectacular Show with the Radio City Rockettes was just super!!! And the wild and crazy ride on a Pedi cab was a memory three Texas girls will never forget.
Friendly guide. Trip started on time and saw lots of interesting sights. We arrived the day before, and had never been to New York, so it was a great way to get our bearings.
Aaron was great and made this tour very entertaining and interesting. Would recommend to all.
We enjoyed this tour and Scott, our tour guide was great. I enjoyed the stops at Washington Square Park, the Ghostbusters Garage although it was being renovated at the time so we couldn't see it too well and the Friends Building. The only thing I would say is don't bother paying for priority seating as you don't really get anything extra.
Ryan was a great host and tour guide! He was very personable and answered everyone's questions. He made the tour a lot of fun!
He and I also talked about maybe starting the same tour in the Chicago area. Chicago would be a great town to have a tv and movie tour, and hey, I could be the host and guide!
Booked this tour for my husband, we both really enjoyed it. Scott Bolohan tour guide was excellent and very knowledgeable. Highly recommend this tour.
Excellent tour. Our guide was effective. The tour lived up to expectations.
This was one of my favorite tours. We were able to see many sites of NYC where movies and television shows are set from the comfort of a bus. When we stopped and got off of the bus, the tour guide would take photos for the guests. Max, our tour guide, was knowledgeable and entertaining. This is a must do tour for movie buffs.
Great tour, Scott our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and accommodating when we asked questions.
