Upgrade your tour for priority seating to sit in the first four rows of the coach.

Then, cruise around Manhattan to see dozens of recognizable TV and movie locations. Stop outside the famous Friends apartment to relive the glory days of the ‘90s sitcom. See the spot where the cast of Glee performed ‘I Love New York.’ Cruise by the pub that inspired McLaren’s on How I Met Your Mother. Plus, visit a local park that features prominently in The Mindy Project and rom-com classic When Harry Met Sally.

You'll also pass by the bar where Michael Keaton brooded in Best Picture-winner Birdman, a hotel seen in American Hustle, and the tiny soup restaurant made famous by Seinfeld. You’ll have stars in your eyes as you see many other city locations from titles like Person of Interest, I Am Legend, Ghostbusters, The Mysteries of Laura, and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. 

After winding throughout Manhattan, your tour ends back in Midtown.

Chris was our tour guide and he made it such an enjoyable experience for all of us, even for my teen daughter! He made sure to make she was having fun and showed us all places that he knew we would be interested in. He also took the time to take great pictures of our group. One of the best tours I have been on!

Our tour with Benji was really informative, exciting and all round entertaining. Benji was a great tour guide who knew alot about all the stops and places we drove past (and even places we didn't drive past) where alot of tv shows and movies were filmed, even where celebrities live/d. Also, he was really lovely and polite to everyone, even to the bus driver when we experienced technical difficulties. Thanks so much Benji, I will be recommending this tour to my friends and family when they come to New York City :)

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!
