The guide was knowledgable and friendly, but if a person is not into the soap opera of the TV and movie it isn't so great. I would recommed the guides name the area (like "WEST GRENICH VILLAGE") at each stop since this is not obvious to people new to the area. My wife wanted this trip and I just tagged along.

This was a highlight of my trip. I met the tour group by the Fountain across from the Plaza Hotel, near Central Park. Traveling as a single, I was asked--and accepted--a seat behind the bus driver, and adjacent to the tour guide. Since "Lou", our wonderful guide, never sat, I had the perfect , and unobstructed view that most bus passengers don't get. Thanks, Lou! Our tour was through the neighborhoods of Central Park, Chelsea, Greenwich Village, SOHO, Meatpacking district, etc...Interspersed with many location shoots from both the series and the movie were fun 'pop quizzes' about the show, off-bus visits to Magnolia Bakery, a Sex Toy store and the bar location of "Scouts"--supposedly owned by Aiden and Steve, in the TV series. During the drive between locations were clips from the show and movie, that effectively previewed or transitioned one site to the next. Never a dull moment, we were constantly entertained by locations, clips on the media screens in the bus, and entertaining info about the show, movie and upcoming movie. The guide, Lou, is both knowledgable, hilarious and helpful. Our group consisted of visitors from UK, France, Iceland, Canada, Japan and Americans. All shared the common bond of the Sex and the City TV show and movie. Lou is also knowledgable about specific shopping areas, and suggested a great store with discounted designer clothing, Century 21. The next day, I used that information from the tour, and was able to spend more dedicated time to my own shopping pursuits. Overall, this was a great tour: hilarious, enjoyable and informative. I only wish I didn't finish my Cosmopolitan drink, as I became rather sleepy that afternoon! Thank you so much, Lou!

Our tour guide, Stefanie, was amazing. The way she described us all locations was so much fun. She made just a great job with introducing us to the secret world of the New York fashionistas...I just can recommend this tour to everybody, even no sex and the city fan, as a differnt, exciting kind of sightseeing tour!

It was a well organized tour, fun and appropriate. The tour guide was very, very good and I would do the tour again and highly recommend it to friends. Aside from SATC locations themselves, by doing this tour I managed to see Greenwich Village and Little Italy (with the San Gennaro festa) - which places I would not normally have had the time to see during the short visit in New York

I am a 50 year old woman who took Sex and the City tour with my 18 year old daughter. She was the fan but although I knew little about the show itself I loved seeing places in New York I would otherwise have missed. I know the 'Sex and the City' bit was excellent because of the ohh's and ahh's and constant click of the camera that eminated from my daughter. No one could not have enjoyed eating cup cakes in the park and sipping Cosmopolitan's in a bar in the middle of the day....not to mention a visit to a certain establishment that wasn't a pet shop but that had a large quantity of rabbits inside! Our tour guide, Lindsay, was a breath of fresh air! Full of fun, very informative and a great commedienne. I would advise anyone considering the trip to go on it, it was a definite highlight of my trip to New York!

We had a situation that was very disappointing, but everything came out all right, thanks to my cell phone. We were going on our tour on one of the days that the second Sex & the City movie was being shot around the Pulitzer Fountain. The staff from the movie would not let us get near any to the area of the fountain so we asked them if they knew of a change regarding the meeting place for the tour. No one knew anything and they weren't very helpful. We got there with plenty of time and could not find the person with the blue umbrella like the instructions said. Finally, I decided to call the number on the e-ticket and after the third try, I finally got a live person who told us the pick up area had been changed down two blocks due to the movie shoot. By this time it's 10:55 and pick up time was 11:00 so we had to make our way as fast as we could through all the crowds. We did make the pick up but if I hadn't had my cell phone, I don't think we would have made the tour. I wish someone would've gotten the idea to post someone out there by the fountain with a sign or that BLUE UMBRELLA! My friend and I enjoyed the tour and it was a way of seeing parts of New York that we probably would not have seen. Enjoyed the cupcakes and Cosmos very much.

I went on the Sex and the City Tour and it was very enjoyable to see NYC and all the hot spots on where the show/movie filmed. The tour was allowed to get off at certain spots and our tour guide was very informative and extremely nice. If I was in the city again I would definitely consider taking more tours with the company.

My 21 year old daughter and I went to NYC the past few days as tourists for the first time. She is an avid SATC fan and this also seemed like a good way to see parts of the city we wouldn't ordinarily see as tourists. It was fantastic! Amy Albert was our tourguide. She was so entertaining, I swear she could have made a tour of the docks seem exciting. She is really talented on delivery of material and also provided a lot of extra history and comments about the city as we drove through on our way to SATC sites. She really puts a lot of work into her tours and makes sure her "guests" are comfortable and enjoying themselves. Appreciated the cupcake and the discount at Fresh, thank you! Wouldn't change a thing. We'll be taking other On Location tours next time we go to NYC. Great way to see the city more as natives see it.
