Our tour guide, Marc Baron, was full of a lot of information that our family was unaware of. However, the tour was a half hour late starting because the sound on the television didn't work. The bus driver, Kevin, and tour guide, Marc Baron, tried to get the television to work without any success. They telephoned the office to say that they were trying to get another bus to replace the bus that we were already on, which was sitting on the side of the street, one half block from where we left. Finally, my neice asked if the television was really that important and suggested that we take the tour without use of the televsion. After a vote was taken of the guests on the bus, it was decided to continue the tour without the television. Who knows how long we would have sat there waiting for another bus. Marc Baron said that we would somehow be reimbursed from the company by possibly taking another tour free of charge. As of today, we haven't heard anything regarding his suggestion. Please be advised that about half way through the tour the bus driver was able to get the sound working on the television. The fresh cannolis from Lyndhurst Pastry Shop were out of this world. Perhaps people would have liked to have gotten off the bus to purchase them. At Pizzaland we understand that people ask them to fed-ex them a pizza. Would it have been possible to also stop there to have a taste of the pizza. When we stopped at Satin Dolls, aka Bada Bing Club, we were advised that we would be going through the back door and that there would be a pool table on the left side when we entered the club with souvenirs available for anyone wishing to purchase any. I bought a shot glass and was charged $10.00. However, when my husband and I went to leave the club, we noticed a showcase at the front entrance and shot glasses were marked $6.00. Our tour guide informed us that we weren't being charged an admission charge to enter the club since we were on the tour, but in a way he did charge us an admission charge by overcharging us and how many other people for souvenirs that they bought.

A Real Sopranos fan will enjoy this tour. People who complain about the tour guide 'knowing too much' are idiots. The tour is great, the places are recognizable and the guide is a wealth of knowledge. It is well worth the price and is a great way to spend an afternoon.

My boyfriend and I recently went on Sopranos tour and had a great time. We really enjoyed hearing a lot of behind the scenes info from our tour guide who is an extra on the show. He was fun to listen to and answered any questions thrown his way. It was cool to see a lot of the opening shots from the show and interesting that if you were on the drive w/ Tony Soprano at the beginning of the show, that you would see very little of the sites shown. I guess that's the magic of tv! We enjoyed taking a look into Satriales and seeing the red-checkered table set up right inside ready to be pulled onto the sidewalk for filming. The cannoli that they gave us on the tour was also a nice treat! Overall, it was a great tour and a fun way to spend the afternoon!

The trip would have been a ton better if the weather was better. I thought our person that was in charge was very knowledgable and easy to listen to. I purchased my tickets over the internet and was not allowed to use my coupon. I was very disappointed that nobody was willing to help me with the coupon. Overall I beleive that it was very expensive for what we did. I did enjoy seeing the different locations and learning the different things.

This tour was boring and misleading!

We were expecting for this tour to be fun packed and interesting, but in fact it was 4 hours on a bus that drove us to the dirtiest places in New Jersey. We were also under the impression that we would get to meet the actor who played Vito, but instead we met an actor who had a few bit parts and noone recognized. The highlight of the tour was stopping at the Bada Bing for all of 20 minutes and hounded into buying Soprano memorabilia by the manager. Of course, on the show the dancers are fully nude but in fact, New Jersey laws do not allow nudity and serving alcohol to take place in the same establishment, so the dancers are covered at all times. Of course, once the tour was over we were asked to tip the tour guide and driver. We had already paid 41 dollars apiece for the tickets to a completely boring tour and then on top of that we were asked to tip. No way! I would not recommend this tour to anyone, especially Soprano lovers. Major dissapointment! I should ask for my money back!

We really enjoyed seeing the show locations. Having a guide who has been on the show was even more fun. We especially liked the film clips linking the locations to the show. Seeing the Bada Bing was great but the stop is a bit commercial. I'd rather have a little narration on the stop rather than a shopping event (but my husband disagrees). Thankds so much
