A longtime friend, my wife (who booked the tickets), and I had a great time on the tour. My wife and I came all the way up from Florida to take the tour. Marc, our tour guide, was fantastic and knowledgeable. He gave us a good inside scoop on lots of things about the show. I hope everyone tipped him well for a job well done. It was great seeing all the locations, however, the best part was meeting "Vito Spatafore" (Joe Gannascoli) from the show. We didn't expect that. To meet someone who had a major part in the series was so cool, plus, he had an assortment of neat souvenirs for sale at reasonable prices. Vito also took the time to pose for pictures as sign a few autographs. I can't believe that the person in front of us had the nerve to ask if the souvenirs were free...and then writes, on his review, "Would be better if the cast member lets you know that the souvenirs cost money rather than making you assume they are included." How silly is that? You get in a cab and you pay your fare. You buy a hot dog and you pay for your food. Do you think he comes there because he has nothing else to do? I highly recommend the tour, in particular, the limited priority seating. If you are lucky, Marc will be your tour guide and Vito will be there. The tour is well worth the money and the four hours of your time. As Vito said to Finn (Meadow's boyfriend- S5, episode 9), as he cornered him leaving the porta-toilet at the construction site, "Don't pull that 'Awe shucks' **** with me. You're ******' going!" What fan wouldn't want to see numerous locations and visit places like Holsten's and the Bada Bing!? If you're in NYC and are a fan of The Sopranos, there is no excuse for you to miss this tour.

We arrived at the bus location at 9:30 to be greeted by Vito with his soparanos memorabilia, we paid extra for the VIP seats which I highly recommend as we had a great view of the city from the front seats. Our tour guide Marc was very enthusiastic and highly knowledgable of all things sopranos related. He even did some trivia questions that kept the group entertained. The locations were just as we expected and Marc was very descriptive in his explanation of the scene. Followed up an actual clip of the scene from the show. We had more than enough time at each location to take photos and ask questions. We really enjoyed the onion rings and Holstens and the beer at the Bada Bing! Great tour and it more than lived up to our expectations.

Historic Trip Down Sopranos Memory Lane

I thought the tour was excellent. It revealed what the experience of working on a large project was really like. The tour brought back a heap of old memories and made me want to re watch the entire series once again. Some of the locations shown were of real value to the trip including the pig store, the cafe where Chris was shot and heaps more.

The tour also pointed out some flaws in the series which I failed to notice the original time, so that was interesting.

My overall experience was a great one and I would recommend the tour to all Sopranos fans.

Can't praise this tour enough!

I've just returned home to Ireland after spending 7 nights in New York. The highlight of my trip (of which there were many) was The Sopranos tour.

I thought the tour was absolutely fantastic. I wasn't expecting to see so many locations and filming sites from the show. Highlights included a visit to the diner outside which Chrissy gets shot by Matt Bevilacua and Sean Gismante; Richie April's social club; the Bada Bing (now called Satin Dolls); the diner in which the show's finale was filmed (with free onion rings to boot!); AJ's school; Big Pussy's body shop; the area under the bridge where Chrissy pays off the 2 black guys after the hit on Carmine is cancelled, only to have them subsequently murdered; the dock where Paulie attacks Dick Barone's son and where Chrissy suffers a mock execution. The trip from NYC to NJ, via the Lincoln Tunnel, emulating Tony's drive throughout the opening credits, is also fantastic!

Despite the multitude of locations and sites visited, the undisputed star of the show for me was the tour guide, Marc Baron. Marc actually featured in several episodes of the show and is exceptionally knowledgeable and passionate about The Sopranos. Not only does he transmit this knowledge and passion, he also goes to great lengths to make the tour constantly interactive, dynamic and stimulating. Throughout the duration of the trip, Marc continually tosses out trivia questions, including questions for prizes! He also provides endless trivia nuggets of his own, the actors' back stories, 'inside stories' from his time on the show, and other witty and informative anecdotes. I also loved his laconic, off-beat delivery and laid-back, unassuming style.

Another huge bonus of taking this tour is that you get to meet Joe Gannascoli, who plays slain capo Vito Spatafore on the show. Joe is very friendly and is happy to pose for pictures. He also sells some merchandise from his car. I didn't purchase anything from Joe, but I did shell out for two pint glasses and a shot glass at the Bing towards the end of the tour!

In summary, I would 100% recommend this trip to anyone who is a fan of The Sopranos. It surpassed even my most enthusiastic expectations.

I'm really grateful to Marc for how he brought the tour to life; he did an absolutely wonderful job.

Thanks again!

Jack, Ireland

Can't praise this tour enough. From photo opportunities with Vito at the start all the way to the Bada Bing, Marc Baron made this a tour of a lifetime. Insightful knowledge and trivia delivered all the way made the sopranos come alive
