  • Tour guide Sarah was nice but, overall, this was just disappointing. Not as advertised. Boring. Not worth the cost. The big red bus unavailable due to "mechanical issues" but I think because we had a smaller group, they went with a smaller vehicle. That meant no restroom on the (now) van, poor visibility due to the big bulkhead in the van. It also meant one of the stops was spent standing in line at Starbucks to use the restroom--pretty ridiculous. We made a few stops for photo ops but skipped others when no one spoke up to say they wanted to have a "moment" at a particular stop. Missing the Empire State Building because of some traffic thing was a major bummer. (A traffic thing? It's NYC--there's always a traffic thing!) And the tour ended about 30 minutes early! Surely there was time to see something else! Lots of modern movies/TV mentioned because they were shot where we were (and tour guide seem enamored of them) but this was the TURNER CLASSIC MOVIE tour so we really didn't give a rip about that stuff. Paying extra to sit up front wasn't worth it. Buying (in advance) their flimsy tote bag wasn't worth it. Planning a weekend in NYC with this as our main outing SO wasn't worth it. Do yourself a favor: Watch TCM. Skip this tour. If you wanna see NYC, go for it on one of those hop on/hop off tour buses with open-air seating on top. I wish we had!
  • Nice air conditioned bus tour through lower manhattan. Our tour guide Benji did a good job of pointing out as many locations as he could and what shows and movies filmed there. We stopped at a couple different locations to get out and take a closer look. Benji was very engaging and seemed to keep the attention of most everyone. If you're into TV and movies and want to see major locations I definitely recommend this tour.
