We did the TV & Movie Tour by On Location Tours - Elyse was our guide and she made the whole experience fantastic. As a guide, she was naturally funny and welcoming. Great knowledge of all TV and Movie in New York as well as sharing her own experiences on SNL - which was a great insight. We could've listened... More

Due to a series of unfortunate events, this tour turned out to be less than what we expected. First it was a bitterly cold day and we had to wait outside to meet the tour bus. The bus was late. Very late. The tour guide tried to mitigate the situation by suggesting that we disperse and then return at a... More

For anyone that loves gossip girl this is a must! For anyone that loves New York this is a must! Although it is based on the shows sights, it's a great way to see lots of gorgeous places throughout NYC

Roseanne was our tour guide and she was wonderful. She had excellent energy, made jokes, answered questions and knew SO much about the many areas in NYC featured in shows and movies. She also knows where celebrities currently live in the city! We got off the bus 3 times to walk around and she offered to take pictures for everyone... More

The Sex and the City tour was so much fun! I went alone, but quickly made friends with other women from out of town. Elyse the tour guide was hilarious and showed us amazing locations and clips!

Great Tour, very interactive using both clips from classic movies you watch as you ride through the city and then stopping at the actual location. Incredible how much the city has changed since some of the movies were filmed, some sites were unrecognizable. The guide was excellent with her knowledge and getting us involved. Great way to see a large... More

Our guide was great. She shared lots of great information and was very personable. There wasn't initially a tour scheduled for when we needed one so On Location Tours created one just for us. They were super accommodating and provide a great experience.

The NYC movie/TV location was on St Patrick's Day and Fifth Ave. was closed. The tour company knew this and shouldn't have offered the tour that day. We couldn't see the FIfth Ave locations and the traffic was horrific. The tour guide,Deo, tried his best to still make the tour enjoyable, but it just didn't hit the mark.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
