Thoroughly recommended for all Soprano's fans

It was a simply BRILLIANT afternoon tour. At very least it was really nice to get out of the city but Marc, our guide, kept everything moving in a fun and informative way. He was truly excellent in fact.

All the spots visited were really great especially Holsten's and "The Bing" which really felt like you were back in the show.

The icing on the cake was getting to meet Jo Gannascoli before the tour departed, how many other tours can you take where you get to say yo met a cast member of the show?!

Couldn't recommend it highly enough or Marc our guide for all his insights into the filming of the series.

Tour Guide was superb - but trip was too long!

From the UK and love Soprano's - I attended with my 21 year old son - who is also a big fan, Nice to get to meet Vito - but was quite shocked at the price of his souvenirs ($20 for a signed mouse mat of poor quality). Bus was nearly an hour late due to traffic issues - but tour guide did a great job keeping us updated an entertained! Drive into New Jersey was great - recognised lots of places. I realized that I had very little knowledge of the programme - there were some real enthusiasts on our tour who seemed to know every scene, fact, actor etc. So was interesting to learn more. Was slightly disappointed on the stops - so the diner where Christopher was shot, the alley way where a scene was filmed, and most disappointed with the Bada Bing - which has been totally overhauled and looks nothing like in the show. No photo's were allowed inside as this is still a working club - I can understand this - but nevertheless - was disappointing. The restaurant where the last scene was filmed was also a bit of an odd experience as it was filled with lunchtime diners and we "invaded" their space and started taking photo's of the famous booth where Carmela, Tony and AJ sat - felt kind of odd and also very invasive for those diners. Overall I think the tour is 2 hours too long - it felt like we were shown some very vague areas with loose connections to the show. Saying all this - our Tour Guide was superb - very funny, knowledgeable and gave us some great insight into the actors, how the show is produced, learnt a lot about theories on the ending and David Chase. Still think it could be cut down by at least an hour though.

We are fans of the series and booked the tour with minimum info. We enjoyed meeting one of the lead actors(Vito) and had paid extra for near the front seats(I get motion sickness). The guide was informative and funny and gave us some "inside" info regarding filming and some insight into James Galdolfini. The pace of the tour was good and we had opportunities to take photos. The guide was able to discuss our views and, in case any passenger had not seen the end, did not give away the final scene. The fact we were able to sit in the booth in the deli was a bonus. We are going to watch the whole series again just to compare how the scenes look in "real life" to the screen. A great way to spend 4 hours

Great to see Vito at the start, amazing journey from NYC around NJ - great guide and driver. We actually overran by half hour but I didn't want it to end anyway!

Exceeded expectations and would definately reccom
Sat, Oct 6, 12   10:00 AM Jenbang Female 30-39 International Tourist(s) Family Without Children
Was a bit dubious as not a typical guided tour tourist but this well exceeded my expectations. Great value for money and a time flew. As a big fan every moment was really enjoyable and relevant. The tour guide was exceptional, knowledgeable, interesting, funny and engaging. He was even in 13 episodes himself.

A real kick to meet 'Vito' and made the whole experience perfect. Still can't believe the value for money you get, the sites you see and the venues you get to visit. AMAZING!

Great tour - factual and fun!

We really enjoyed this tour, and the guide was really informative - if a little too knowledgable about the series and film in general. We are big sopranos fans, but not so much that we had noticed or could recall little discrepancies in the program, although it was fun to hear about them. From bada bing to the last scene of the series, the tour was fun and great value!

A must for any Sopranos fan

Got to meet Joseph Gannascoli and have photo taken with him at begining of tour on 7th & 39th. Tour guide Marc Baron was great. Very knowledgeable, enthusiastic, funny, and like most hardcore fans, still very passionate about the Sopranos some 5 years after the final ep. Note: The Bada Bing has begun to go through some renovations. In a few months, it will look different from what you remember. Spent 15-20 min at Holsten's, site of the final scene, free onion rings for tour members. Allowed us a bit of time to order off the menu! Too many sites to name, but all familiar. Freshen up on your Sopranos trivia, Marc is always testing and giving away prizes throught the tour. Bus left at 10am, back in Manhattan at 2:30 (Bryant Park).

Took my parents and sister on this tour who are major Sopranos fans. The tour guide was fantastic and full of energy and knowledge. We all really enjoyed every part of this tour.
