Description

Follow in the footsteps of Carrie & Co. as they conquer New York City! Drink where they drink, shop where they shop, and gossip where they gossip.

This three-and-a-half hour (approximate) guided bus tour twists and turns through the Sex and the City girls' stomping ground, visiting the restaurants where they wine and dine, the shops at the center of Carrie Bradshaw's shoe fetish, the bars they frequent, and much more! Live the chic life on an air-conditioned bus, hopping on and off to catch a glimpse into the lives of four of New York's most eligible bachelorettes.

Over 40 real-life locations are featured on the tour, including:
  • Visit the site of Carrie and Big’s wedding rehearsal dinner
  • Hop into the Pleasure Chest where Charlotte buys her “Rabbit”
  • Scout the bar owned by Steve and Aidan
  • Reminisce Miranda’s embarrassing underwear moment in the Village
  • Venture into the trendy neighborhood, MePa, where the girls frequent
  • Pass the café where Samantha invites the girls to Abu Dhabi
  • Get some retail therapy like Carrie & Co. at Greenwich Village boutiques
  • Indulge in cupcakes like when Carrie confides in Miranda about Aidan
Come prepared to experience the city - you will be getting off the bus with your guide at several of the locations. For visitors and locals alike, there is no better way to journey through Manhattan, led by your guide on a trip through Carrie & Co's favorite city.

Really great tour. Not only is it a fantastic way to tour the different areas of the city, but gives you good ideas on where to eat and drink too. Our guide, Lou, was really fun and friendly.

Had a truly great experience on this tour. The guide was fun and energetic with tons of sites to see and overall just a great view of the city itself which helped to get our barrings. Any fan of the show would appreciate this tour!

The tour was nice in that many hot spots were pointed out. For the most part you toured NYC on a bus. Sit on the left side of the bus if you want to see anything (we sat on the right). I would do it at least once if you have nothing else planned.

Fun way to see New York

Very enjoyable and professionally run. Great way to see New York through the eyes of sex and the city. You don't have to be a major fan to get something out of the tour.

Super fun for locals too!

I live in the city and my aunt was visiting- we both LOVED this tour. I never realized that lots of places that I often visit were on SATC- I kind of got the opposite experience as my aunt from out of town- she got to see places she never saw before because of this tour. I would TOTALLY recommend this tour. It looked like guys on the tour had a blast too. Stacy was SO FUNNY and entertaining.

Our tour guide Juliana was enthusiastic, sweet and helpful. However, a big 'minus' was that we did not get to see the exterior of Carrie's house!

More places to see would be nicer than places like e.g. the dildo shop for over 20 min

Ratings and Reviews for:
If the tour is sold out, is there a waiting list?
No, On Location Tours does not keep a waiting list for our tours. Tours usually sell out, and often well in advance, so please make sure to purchase your tickets far in advance, especially if you have limiited time availability.
Where does the tour finish?
The Sex and the City tours end at 42nd Street & 6th Ave.
Are we on the bus the whole tour?
Absolutely not. The tour takes place on a coach bus since the locations are spread out all around Manhattan. But we get off the bus at a number of locations along the way, giving you the opportunity to experience the locations and take pictures. Whenever you leave the bus, it is with the tour guide. The tour includes a mix of on-the-bus viewings of locations and stops to get off the bus to explore, all woven into the Sex and the City story by your tour guide.
What exact locations do we visit?
The exact itinerary and route of the tour varies somewhat from tour to tour, so we can't say ahead of time exactly which locations will be visited on a specific tour. There are usually 3-4 scheduled stops on each tour, including various bars, shops, and other locations - but tour routes may differ from tour to tour. You will be provided with a handout that lists many of the real-life locations on the tour so you can revisit them at your leisure afterwards.
Is there an age limit on this tour?
Children under 12 years old, including babies, are unfortunately not allowed on the tour, as the content of the tour and several of its stops are not suitable for young children. This is an "R-Rated" tour, based on the HBO series; adult language is used and adult situations discussed. Additionally, tour participants under the age of 17 must be accompanied by an adult of at least 18 years of age. Please also keep in mind that a couple of the stops on tour - a few bars and other establishments - do have their own age minimums, and it is up to the discretion of these establishments whom to allow in.
What type of ticket should I buy?
Everyone should purchase the adult ticket.
Do you have any special packages for bachelorette or birthday parties?
Yes, we have a variety of special packages to choose from! For more information about the private tour packages, please click “Contact OnLocation” to the left of the page.
Is there ever a circumstance when a location is omitted from the tour?
While it is extremely rare, we do sometimes need to skip or modify certain locations that usually are part of the tour. Since the tour is visiting real-life locations all around Manhattan, the tour's itinerary can sometimes be impacted by traffic conditions, store hours, etc. On Location Tours assumes no liability or responsibility for: traffic conditions, access to sites, or other conditions beyond its control.
Will we see locations from the movie?
There are a number of movie sites worked into the tour, but the focus remains on famous scenes and locations from the TV series.
Is this also a good general New York City sightseeing tour?
Yes. While the tour's focus is first and foremost on the show Sex and the City, the tour meanders through a variety of New York neighborhoods, and people often find it to be a great overview of the city. The tour usually visits neighborhoods such as SoHo, Greenwich Village, Chelsea, the Meatpacking District, 5th Avenue and more. So even though the tour does not visit such New York sightseeing regulars as the Empire State Building, etc., it is still a great way to tour Manhattan and get to understand the city and its layout.
Can I bring some wine, beer, Cosmos, etc on the bus?
No, it is against New York State law to consume alcohol on a bus. We do usually stop at one of the bars for Cosmos though, so if you're interested in joining in, please make sure to bring sufficient cash and a valid ID.
Is alcohol included in the tour?
There will be a stop at a bar that was used in the show, where you can buy a Cosmopolitan at a discount. On Location Tours cannot include alcohol with the price of the tour, as the company does not have a liquor license.
Are the tours conducted in English only?
While we do offer a special German version of the tour on Saturdays at 3pm (please see Sex and the City Tour auf Deutsch on the calendar), the other scheduled SATC tours are only conducted in English at this time. Since so much of the tour is visual, however, visitors from countries like Japan, Germany, France, Spain, and plenty of others have enjoyed the tour just the same!
What type of bus is used?
The tour is conducted on a closed coach bus. It is heated in the winter and air conditioned in the summer.
Is there assigned seating on the bus?
Priority seating offers guaranteed assigned seating. Otherwise, seating is first come, first serve. If you have a number of people in your party that want to sit together, you should make sure to arrive 15-20 minutes early. Guests that arrive late or right at the starting time are much more likely to have to split up their group.
Is there a bathroom on the bus?
Yes.
Are food and drink included on the tour? Can I bring my own?
A cupcake is provided on the tour. We will also stop at one of the bars used on the show where cosmos and other drinks will be available for purchase. If you would like any additional food or drinks, feel free to bring something of your own if it is neat and you're sure to remove all garbage from the bus. Alcohol is completely prohibited on the bus.
Are the buses handicapped accessible?
Yes, but you need to contact On Location Tours directly before booking your tickets to arrange a wheelchair accessible bus, if needed. To do this, please click “Contact OnLocation” to the left of the page. Buses are equipped with on-board restrooms. Buses are not equipped with lap or shoulder belts or harnesses. We are committed to providing accessible tours to persons with disabilities and are able to provide accessible vehicles for passengers with mobility impairments. Notice of the need for an accessible vehicle at least 24 hours in advance is strongly recommended so as to guarantee the timely provision of an accessible vehicle. The wheelchair lifts can accommodate up to approximately 600 pounds total. However, If you will be using a fold-up wheelchair and will be traveling with someone who can provide assistance on and off the bus, you do not need to inform us ahead of time as all of our buses have room in the luggage compartment to store it.
Are cameras allowed on the tour?
Yes. While photography and filming are not allowed on the bus portion of the tour, there are some great spots for taking photos and video at our numerous stops along the way.
Can I take luggage on the tour?
The Sex and the City Tour is conducted on a coach bus, so limited storage space is available. Please keep in mind that there will be several stops of up to 15-20 minutes each, where we will be leaving the bus. If you are not comfortable leaving your belongings on the bus during this time, you might want to reconsider bringing them.
Are gift certificates available for the tour?
Yes, gift certificates are available for all On Location tours and make a perfect gift for holidays, birthdays or any other occasion! To purchase a gift certificate for this activity, please click on the "Gift certificates: Purchase" link in the box above.
