The tour was great fun. For Sex and the City fans it is a must - you get to see all the main locations used to film the programme, and the tour guide is a veritable mine of Carrie based information! It is also a fantastic way to find out where all the cool bars and trendy shops are, so that you too can live it up in the city that never sleeps!

Tour guide was very knowledgable about the show so added great enthusiasm, nice extras like hand outs and tv clips from the show to jog memories about locations and to have for future visits. Highlight was getting a huge cupcake then going to Carrie's stoop. The Manhattan traffic slowed the smooth flow but as this is unpredictable, can change. If you are a SATC fan, it's a must!

I have already highly recommended the tour to everyone I know. We loved that you were able to show clips from the show that related to the locations we were seeing. We thoroughly enjoyed all of the stops. The 'hostess' of the tour did a fantastic job passing the time with trivia. You get more than your monies worth.

While in NYC, this was my favorite activity. It was interactive and we got to see many sites we would not have seen without being on this tour. I especially enjoyed the Magnolia Bakery outing where we got to eat the cupcakes and take pictures on Carrie's stoop. I also loved the restaurant Tao. I have already recommended this to friends and even sent them the link to the website. Thanks for helping make my trip to New York so enjoyable.

The tour really was a lot of fun. The clips that were shown on the bus were just fantastic - made everything "real." The cupcakes were to die for. "Aidan's bar" was fabulous. I loved being able to go in and have a cosmo or two and stand where the Sex and the City Ladies have stood before. I also loved having my picture taken on Carrie's doorstep. Very very cool! My girlfriends and I had a blast!

i loved that we got to drive all over the city. though we'd done a lot of walking we hadn't seen a lot of the residential areas. we loved that. i loved that the showed us clips fromt he show as we were on the trip. i think more of those would be great. our tour guide was really fun. the 3 hours went really fast. when i come to new york next time, i plan on doing the tv/movie tour that you have! thanks!

Georgette was wonderful - very funny & entertaining. We loved standing on Kerry's stoop, eating cupcakes & buying the 'rabbit'!!! I was really impressed with the amount of knowledge that Georgette had about the show & there was never a dull moment. Previously have done the Sopranos Tour & thought that was excellent but Sex & The City was superb! If you want a quick overview of the city it's also a great way to explore even if you don't watch the Show religiously you'll still have a great time.

I thought the concept was brilliant, and all in all I would recommend it but there were a few areas it fell down- the videos were very patchy, and whenever we stopped to go 'on location' the sales tie-ins were annoying - i.e. always being encouraged to spend money wherever we went also the overall tone was a little smutty at times - yes, I can see how the tour lends itself to being a bit like a bachelorette party-like atmosphere, but that's not how it's represented on the website having said that I'd do it again - it's a great way to see parts of the city that you'd normally never see
