Re-live your Favorite TV and Movie Moments throughout NYC!

The TV and Movie Sights tour was my first experience with On Locations Tours, and I was blown away with how entertained I was throughout the 2.5 hours aboard the bus.  The bus left from Ellen's Stardust Diner in Times Square, which was super easy to get to, just a few blocks from the Times Square subway station, where every line crosses. My guide, Gary was a human encyclopedia for New York City sights in films and on television.  Being that the bus was set for an 11am departure, I was pleasantly surprised that they allow food and drinks on the very comfortable bus.  Gary gave us time to grab a coffee and a snack before boarding and there was a bathroom aboard the bus.

From Friends to the Cosby Show, to Hitch, When Harry Met Sally, Elf, Home Alone, Spiderman and so many more, Gary was able to not only point out each site and explain each scene of the locations we passed by, but could also answer questions the passengers had, proving his wide range of knowledge.  It was honestly impressive.

My favorite part of the On Location tours is that they play clips of the TV show and movie scenes, just after you’ve gone by them so you can re-live those moments on the screen and recognize the famous spots.  The tour offers a lot of information, not just on the movies and shows featured, but about the actual industry and filming processes.  Most, if not all of the tour guides with On Locations are also actors, so they have inside information that you won’t get on other tours.

Along the way there were trivia questions with prizes awarded for correct answers.  There were a few stops that allowed passengers to get off the bus and explore some of these famous backdrops, such as Washington Square Park, the NY Fire Station featured in Ghost Busters, the Friends apartments in West Village, home of the Huxtables from the Cosby Show, and shopping in SoHo, where the Kardashian-owned Dash store is. 

The list of TV and movie memories you’ll relive on this tour is unbelievable, and besides new-found knowledge, guests on this tour will also walk away with a famous Black and White cookie and a pamphlet listing all the sights you’ve seen, so that you can remember them and go back and visit them again. I would absolutely recommend this tour to fans of pop culture – even the most knowledgeable fans are bound to learn a thing or two!
