As a huge fan of the program the tour was a must when visiting New York for the first time. I was extremely looking forward to the tour and it did not disappoint. It covered sites from all seasons including Carries apartment and a Cosmopolitan in Scout. The guide was very enthusiastic and helpful. I would and already have recommended the tour to friends who are visiting NYC in the near future.

I thought that the tour was poorly organised. We had a long wait to get onto the coach although we were told to get there early. The content of the tour was extremely lazy and non exciting. As a huge fan of the series, I was expecting to be treated to an interesting and informative show. Instead, our guide was irritating and not very informative, we spent far too long in a sex shop and not enough time in the boutique - let's face it the fashion in the show is a huge part where dildos are not! Cafe Cafe which features greatly in the programme was not even on the itinerary. We were rushed into photographs of Carrie's doorstep - by this time it was very dark and they probably won't come out anyway - maybe it could have been visited earlier. The series exerpts that were shown on the bus to illustrate where we were, were of poor quality and looked like they had been cobbled together on the guide's video recorder at home with long gaps in between takes. Perhaps they could have been edited together a little more professionally. Our tour ended with a visit to the bar that was the setting for Scout. We were invited to have a luke warm Cosmopolitan that had been pre made and sitting on the bar for a while for the generous cost of $7. When we asked to see the cocktail list - I don't drink vodka and didn't want something I didn't drink - the bar tender was extremely rude and said he was only serving Cosmopolitans for the Sex and City tour. I did mention that the girls drank many different drinks in the series and he grudingly offered to serve us but we would have a long wait. We ended up walking out as we were appalled and by this time so disappointed with the whole afternoon. We instead found another bar, where they were quite happy to serve us what cocktail we wanted, for a price of $7 and one that was twice the size. I would not recommend this tour and felt completely cheated. It was a waste of money. The best bit was the free cup cake (that we had to gobble in the freezing cold) and we could have bought that for several dollars less than the $74 in total that we paid for both of us.

As an avid watcher of Sex and the City, I was very much a fan of the tour. It was, however, akward at points such as sneaking up the steps of Carrie's house to get a snapshot and hiding behind the bus so as not to watch the "other" power lesbian see us eat her ex's cupcakes. That could have been a little more professionally put together, but overall the tour was still very enjoyable.

The tour was entertaining, although the tour guide was way over the top. Very enjoyable experience and got to see aspects of New York which would never have found otherwise.

I think it was the best experience of all my NY trip! I went there on vacation and booked the tour online from Puerto Rico without any inconvenient. The best part was the tour guide, she was hillarious, and shared all the juicy facts I wanted to know. The muffing was also a great detail. I don't know her name. It was on the 30th of dec. at 11:30am. When it was finished I was a little sad because I did not wanted it to end. Keep on doing that excellent job!

Seamless -- it was all very smooth and entertaining, thanks to our guide, who was witty and very reminiscent of Candace Bushnell. I liked the treats and souvenirs and we managed to cover a lot of ground -- many of NY's fave neighborhoods -- in just a few hours. It all went by too soon!
