This was a fun tour. Our guide was enthusiastic and very well-versed. My only complaint is that the tour time was supposed to be from 2-6pm. We did not get back to our drop-off point until 7:10 which messed up our dinner plans. I highly recommend the tour, but be aware you may not be done with it until long after 6!

If you love the sopranos this is a must do. Me and my boyfriend booked this befor we came on our holiday,we are from the u.k.

I was really pleased to fnd out our tour guid was Marc Baron, he has been in 13 episodes of the sopranos. He was able to give us some interesting behind the scenes info. He made the tour really enjoyable. We were also lucky in that we got to meet vito. if you go on this tour you must sit on the right side of the bus, as all the views apart from two are on this side. you get to visit all the popular places from the series, apart from tonis house. Take cash wth you, when you visit the bada bing you get a chance to buy some merchandise. when you visit the bada bing it is open, so the dancers are there. On the bus between sites the tour guid does quiz, you can win prizes. This tour was worth avery single penny (cent). I dont want to give too much away as i dont want spoil the surprise. f you go on this tour you wont be disopointed. Enjoy. Many thanks to Marc Baron, we did the tour on sunday the 2nd of november. .

Enjoyable but some tenuous location links

We really enjoyed this tour especially the visit to the Bada Bing and the Diner. Some of the locations we visited were pretty tenuously linked to the series and we felt there was sometimes too much emphesis put on detailing all the 'goofs' that had been spotted in the filming.

Overall the tour guide was very interesting and knowledgable and we enjoyed the interactivity. I'd recommend this tour for any serious Sopranos fans.

Even better than expected...feel so much more informed about the show and its history than I was before, 'cause it's not just seeing the sights, it's a barrel of details about casting, production, and so much more. Enjoy! Tony G.

See New Jersey and your favourite TV show at once!

This was a very professional tour, packed with a good combination of bus trip, on-foot walks and location visits. Any Sopranos fan would be crazy to miss it! Even if you're not a follower of the show, you'll get to see locations in and around New Jersey which can be easily overlooked if you've only come to see Manhattan. This state has plenty of interesting areas on its own which are well worth visiting.

We were guided by a non-speaking extra from several episodes, who had plenty of insider gossip to share. This trip comes highly recommended.

Look, a whole review without one cheesy mafia-speak reference! I can't believe I resisted the urge.

Great tour

The tour was informative, and a lot of fun. We enjoyed seeing all of the locations, however, we felt that it would be better to show the video when you are at the location, or have just seen it, so that it is fresher in your head instead of waiting to show the video on the way home from the trip.

It does the job, but nothing special

The tour guide I had (Steve(?) Mammoud I think...) was quite good at keeping the tour interesting, he has a lot of information on each of the stops and runs through an informative and at times humorous routine of trivia about the show and New Jersey while in between locations.

Too bad most of the locations were from small unmemorable scenes of the show. At least they remind you of those short scenes by playing it on the bus.

The big stops were ok though. I was expecting the management at the Satin Dolls to pressure us to spend some money, but that didn't happen, which was a nice surprise. The girls were nice too. Satriales was torn down so it was a big disappointment.

So to sum it up, good tour guide, poor locations. Go if you have the time, but don't make special arrangements.

The Bing was Awesome...

The tour guide was excellent. Not many sites visited. Just watched on the bus. Too bad we could not have visited more sites rather than look at from the bus. But again, the tour guide was awesome.
