Great way to see the city as a local!

I frequent NYC so I was looking for something new and fun to do while my husband was working. It was a fun walk down memory lane of one of my favorite shows. Our tour guide Staci was super fun and really knowledgeable about the show. At first I was thinking that 3.5 hours was going to be long but the time flew by! I enjoyed watching the clips to refresh my memory. I enjoyed scouting locations of places to go back and see later. I now have a good list of things to do next time I am in town. It is a great option of something to do on a cold day or on a super hot day where you really get to see the city and how people live rather than the normal touristy type spots. I recommend the tour and it is totally worth the time and money. I went alone and met several women who also came by themselves so don't be afraid to go by yourself!

I went on the SATC tour while in NYC this week. I'm so glad I did it, as I've been wanting to go on this tour for years, and have never had the chance while in the City. Truthfully, it was just okay. The bus driver was clearly not happy to be a bus driver. Our tour guide seemed to want to get us through the tour as quickly as possible. Yes, she was knowledgeable, but definitely didn't tell me anything I didn't already know. And didn't show us anything we couldn't have seen on our own. She was very interested in telling us about her ambitions to be an actress. I loved seeing the City, loved seeing locations where memorable moments were filmed (even if we were flying past in a bus), and loved immersing myself in SATC for 3.5 hours. I just wish the tour guide and bus driver were more fun.

I was super excited about this tour after reading all the reviews online! I want to leave one because I feel that I was definitely a little disappointed based off of the raves I saw, I did not feel this tour met our expectations. Our tour guide was lovely, quirky and funny and did a nice job of narrating throughout. The tour was mostly focused around watching TV clips of STC episodes, and then casually pointing out where different moments occurred (shops, dinners, etc.) While we were fortunate to have decent seats on the bus, most places pointed out came and went before we could even take them in. And really, many of them were not overwhelmingly exciting..so it didn't matter all that much. We made a few quick stops, the sex shop (which was small and nothing special), yes it was cute because of the whole "rabbit episode", but there was nothing that exciting. We stopped briefly for "shopping" and to see Carrie's brownstone, which was what I was most looking forward to. Before getting off the bus, we were alerted that we had to be very quiet while walking down the street (this is to a bunch of women in NYC) and we were not permitted to take photos on the stoop. There was a bunch of construction next door, which kind of ruined the ambiance as well (not the tours fault, but still stinky).The shopping and brownstone part was under 30 minutes and offered a coupon for Michael Kors. To me, this fell very short of a Sex and the City shopping experience, no boutiques or Fancy designers, we could get Michael Kors at any mall. Instead, we had just enough time to find a bar for mimosas. We stopped at Buddhakan, the scene of Carrie's rehearsal dinner and another episode feature. A very stunning restaurant, yes, but who really wants to take a tour and pictures of a restaurant where anyone can go at anytime? No little finger foods or cocktails offered...nothing to make it something cool to do, it almost felt a little odd to be touring a restaurant. We went to Scout last, by far the best part because it was in many episodes and was very true to what it looked like on the show, and we got to finally have cocktails!! Overall I found this tour to be very boring, lack luster and just not very inventive. I understand that it is a fairly cheap tour, however, I think people would pay more and appreciate if the tour were more thoughtful, interactive, interesting and fun! Maybe some light STC inspired snacks at Budhakkan, trivia on the bus, cute decorations of some sort, anything to liven it up and make it more of an event! I would not go on this tour again unless they made some big changes...hopefully they will!

A GREAT TOUR, A BIG SURPRISE FOR WIFE & DAUGHTER

MY SON AND LAW AND I ARRANGED THIS TOUR FOR MY WIFE AND DAUGHTER AND A BIG SURPRISE FOR THEM. OUR TOUR GUIDE, LOU MATTHEWS, WAS IN ON IT AND WAS SO HELPFUL IN KEEPING IT UNTIL READY TO ENTER BUS. FRONT ROW SEATS MADE IT EVEN BETTER. LOU WAS THE BEST TOUR GUIDE WE HAVE HAD IN THE CITY. SHE KNEW EVERYTHING ABOUT CARRIE AND THE GIRLS AND ALL THE GREAT SPOTS WE STOPPED AT. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED EVEN FOR US GUYS. CHET INGALLS

If you enjoyed Sex and the City, you will love this tour. Heated bus, show clips to jog your memory and a tour guide that had enthusiasm. Free to roam a bit but structured schedule. Great mix. Good job Lou!

Bus broke down and group filled with drunk people.
Fri, Nov 14  3:00 PM Jlgifford01 Female 30-39 Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
There was a group of local friends for a birthday on our tour bus. The guide asked politely at the beginning of the tour to refrain from alcohol and this group continued to drink. They were loud and obnoxious. The tour guide continued to scold other passengers for misconduct when it was apparent it was this group. When we arrived at the last stop, "Scout" bar, the line to grab a Cosmo was very long and most people just wanted to get back on the bus. We found out 30 mins later, when no one could find the bus, that it had broke down. We were told we could wait another 30 mins for a new bus and end the tour an hour later (already at the 3.5 hr mark) or find our own transportation back. We decided to find our own transportation, however not being from NYC, posed to be difficult finding the subway in the dark in an unfamiliar place. We were offered nothing including an apology. I would not recommend this tour.

Fabulous tour led by Sasha! It was fun and informative and we got to see the sights of New York City as well as Sex and The City. The Cosmo we had at "Scout" was delicious, and I'd highly recommend getting a slice of Two Boots pizza at that stop. Great fun and glad we booked it!
