Our tour guide was funny, beautiful, charming. She had a lot of pep in her voice and it sounded like it was the first time she told that story, not the nth time. The places we saw were fantastic. The only thing i would change, would be having to pay for cosmopolitans at "Scout". I would give free coupons to people over 21 that they can use or not and none to people under that age. That would settle the problem and be cheaper for us since the tour isn't cheap to start with. But other than that, it's simply wonderful. Although the tape playing in the bus could be changed, it looks like it's played a bit too often and the colours are all washed up.

We throughly enjoyed the tour, great length and it was informative and fun. It really brought the programme to life and it also gave us a great tour of New York and allowed us to see some areas which we may not have visited otherwise. The tour guide was knowledgable and fun and it was great to stop off at certain key places along the way. If you are a SATC fan and have a spare 3 hours then we would definately recommend this tour.

Thought the tour was excellent and lots of fun. Out tour guide Patti, was v. informed, v. professional and v. funny - which made the tour v. enjoyable.

Our favourite part was the cup cakes and sitting on Carrie's steps, oh and ofcourse buying at the "pleasure chest!"

Would definitely recommend!

Great tour and good length - loved the cupcakes!

Only point I would mention is it would be useful to be able to either receive an e-mail or be able to log back into the internet site and print out another confirmation as I thought I'd lost my confirmation printout/number at some point and couldn't then reprint my confirmation number etc - I eventually found it so that was OK but an e-mail or something similar would be a useful tool.

We all (4 people) thought that the cup cakes were awful and were very very dissappointed at the fact we were charged for cosmopolitans.

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.
