Spoilers ahead, please be advised!

From the time I got there and found out that Joe Gannascoli (played Vito) would be there taking pictures and autographs, I was thrilled. Got myself some memorabilia signed and all. Truly priceless!

The host was an actor on the show who was truly an expert on the show, he was telling us all about the backstory for how the opening sequence was filmed out of order and where they were shot (which you actually get to visit!).

You see the locations from key scenes in the series i.e. where Christopher gets shot, prisons, bridges where Tony and A.J. stopped one time, the "pizzaland" parlor shown in the opening sequence of the show....tons more stuff. It brings quite a fresh light and even authenticity to when watching the show.

Last but not least, you see the Bada Bing! The same back alley where Tracee (the dancer with a heart of gold who made some bad choices) gets killed by Ralphie. - Rough stuff.

But amazing nonetheless. Excellent tour, I am glad I went!

Do not speak of the final episode until it has been established on the bus (tour) that everyone has in fact seen it!

Enjoy the Sopranos tour, I did!

the tour was highly informative,with excellant location visits,enhanced by the tour guide marc baron.we found him highly informed,funny,and with the knack of making

everyone of us comfortable and valued.for us as a couple the highlight probably

occurred before the tour started when we met the actor who played vito,whose name escapes me at the moment.another good point we felt was the lack of hard sell with

regards to merchandising sales.we were slightly apprehensive about what extras

we would be expected to pay,but at the end of the tour we felt compelled to tip the guide and driver for making the tour a day we will never forget.i cannot wait to watch

every episode again armed as we are with all this extra knowledge.thanks once

The tour was really cool, the four hours it lasted was just about the right time, i met Vito and going to the Bada Bing was incredible, shame i didnt have any money for the souvenirs though!!!

the sites we were taken could have been anywhere and just told it was used in the sopranos and then your told go to the back of the bus to meet a real character and its vito which is cool but he's selling stuff out of the back of his car like the sopranos must have paid him enough money to not sell stuff out of his car. and so expensive like a copy of a picture that he signs is 20 dollars and i could print off a better quality picture on my home computer. it was a waste of a day in new york when i could have been doing something a lot better. id like to demand my money back it was that bad

Brilliant tour! It was great to meet Vito and the canollis were great. Showing videos of the scenes based at the locations we visited was a nice touch.

Tour guide was great...tour bus air conditioning needs to be fixed asap. Nothing like being on a bus with 50 other sweating people.

Not very good

The coolest thing about the tour was before we even left. We got to meet and take pictures with Vito. The tour bus is hot and does not feel like it is air conditioned. The tour is also to sites that were set up for the show and our now other unrecognizable businesses.

The guide is ok but sometimes more about himself. I would recomend finding out where the tour meets and show up and see if a star appears otherwise you wasted your money.

Bottom line my wife and I were very disappointed.

Great for anyone out of the TriState area

I am a lifelong resident of Philadelphia, North Jersey is certainly not a new experience for me. However the friend I was with from St. Louis thought it was the coolest thing he has ever done. I am not saying I did not enjoy it, it was just kind of weird feeling like a tourist in Kearney, NJ of all places.

Our guide was great, very knowledgable. I thought he spent a little too much time discussing the "mistakes" of the show, but it was still interesting. By far the highlight for me was the great lap dance at Bada Bing (or Satin Dolls.) I would have done the trip all over again just for that. Oh, and also the Canoli was incredible. Overall I think this is a great way to kill 4 hours in Ny/N. Jersey for a true out of towner that is a fan of the Sopranos. Anyone that lives within 2 hours of the area may be a little disappointed.

Guide was excellent at presenting material and behind the scenes knowledge. Site visits followed by clips allowed for understanding and placement of scenes.
