We absolutely loved our private Sopranos Tour! Marc was super informative. The only thing missing is the opening music while going through the Lincoln Tunnel. We learned a lot about where the characters are now. Saw a lot of the filming sites. Bada bing was smaller than it seemed on Tv but still the Bada bing! If you go in this tour when you come back to the city go to Bardough on 46th. The guy who plays Dick Barone on the show owns this bar and her happened to be there and we got to make pictures and chat with him. fun time for people who love this series!

I went on the “NYC TV & Movie Tour” and the “Marvelous Mrs. Maisel Tour” both of which take place in large tour busses. On the “NYC TV & Movie Tour”, it was fun to watch clips of a variety of tv & film scenes set in NYC and then see them in real life! It was a bit pricey but definitely worth it as you travel through a good amount of Manhattan & it teaches you where you want to re-visit! I live in NYC and even I discovered some new areas. The two highlights of the tour were visiting the Friends apartment & The Ghost Busters Fire Station. The 3 hour tour goes by quickly! I also went on the Marvelous Mrs. Maisel Tour because I’m a big fan of the show. Personally, I would not recommend it to others given the price and what you receive. We drove around a small radius of Manhattan and many of the locations were just used as exteriors (e.g. the awning of a building) so you really have to use your imagination. The ones that weren't you could easily have looked them up on your phone and visited them yourself such as La Bonbonnierre or Music Inn. Two of the main stops on the tour were also bars. We were given 10 minutes in each bar which wasn’t enough time to sit down and enjoy a drink so most just chugged their drinks & left. It also wasn’t a fun stop for non-drinkers because the novelty of standing in bar can only be appreciated for so long. Although the tour could use some tweaks, there were some good aspects. For example, the tour around Washington Square Park was interesting, I loved yelling “we got the rabbi” outside of the deli, and I enjoyed hearing behind the scenes secrets of the show.

My mom and I love Gossip Girl (and had taken the SATC tour with this company which we loved) so we decided to try this tour. First of all I’d like to say that our guide Madeline deserved a 5/5 if I were just ranking her. She was very knowledgeable and friendly. Our bus driver Jay was also incredible and so friendly as well. The tour itself wasn’t as great as I expected. The SATC tour we took stopped at quite a few places and they even took us inside some of the restaurants (even if they were closed). This tour had a few very brief stops - outside of Constance, the met steps, Dylan’s and grand central. The rest were kinda just mentioned as we passed and followed by a montage of random clips. The clips also were in a fairly random order....we’d see something, watch 2 clips for things totally different, then that location would pop up. It would have been more easy to follow had the scenes lined up more and maybe if we had gotten to see them before we stopped/passed the location. The tour also ended kinda abruptly - we were just dropped down the street from grand central and left to find it and see it on our own. The SATC tour we took was far more organized. I did like that we were given a list of the locations. This allowed us to go back and explore some of them further (ex. the gold room in the palace and having a GG themed drink at the Empire!). I also really appreciated that Madeline took special care not to reveal the identity of GG since my mom hasn’t quite finished the series yet. Overall it was a fun GG day and I think other GG fans would love it!
