I lucked out with perfect weather when I took Cole Smithey's walking tour of the Carnegie Hill section of the Upper East Side of Manhattan. But it still would've been fantastic in pouring rain. Beginning at the iconic Guggenheim Museum on Fifth Avenue, Cole's connection of architecture, sites where films were made and apartments where legendary film stars lived and still live, along with New York City history in general, helped me to connect to a part of Manhattan with which I previously considered myself very familiar but in reality had barely scratched the surface. Cole's knowledge is encyclopedic and interesting and he is an engaging and affable host. I highly recommend the experience to anyone visiting or local to NYC.

This was an incredibly fun and informative tour of NYC's Upper East Side/Carnegie Hill and its cinematic landmarks. Cole is a great guide! He's a professional film critic who lives right in the neighborhood, so he knows his stuff and was able to reveal so many cool secrets hiding right in plain site. Plus, his dramatic and comedic flair makes this tour extra-enjoyable! Highly recommended!

We took this tour on a frigid day, exhausted from a long flight. Cole kept both me and my teenaged daughter engaged and entertained with his wit and extensive knowledge of the area. The tour is well-paced and the neighborhood is beautiful. His narrative is packed with fun film facts and area history as he points out location shots from popular movies, shares interesting back stories and points out beautiful architectural features throughout the neighborhood. He also made a careful point to offer a much appreciated bathroom and coffee stop. Cole knows his stuff and presents it well!

Cole was extremely knowledgeable and informative. He knows the area very well. He had several opportunities to stop for coffee / drinks and to use the bathroom as necessary. He was prompt. At the end of the tour, he gave me a map and other great information as well as two chocolates since we did so much. I take a lot of tours and travel a lot, and this was by far one of the best I have ever taken.
