I highly enjoyed the tv/movie tour. The guide was very animated and funny. She tried to jampack as much celebrity information as she could while we were driving by the sites!! It was great to see where celebrities live and work since I've never experienced anything like that in the past especially since I'm Canadian. I recommend this tour to anyone who likes entertainment news!

We thought that this was definitely NOT a complete waste of time. It was so much fun, we got to learn more about tv/movies, and got to see the places where some of our favourite stars filmed in NYC. We saw great locations and monuments like the building from the hit tv show "Friends", the "Soup Guy" resteraunt from "Seinfield", and the outside of the famous "Cosby House". We also liked seeing the places where movies were filmed like the firehouse from "Ghostbusters", and ofcourse, the "Cheese & Antiques" shop that was filmed as a little book store in the movie "You Got Mail" starring Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks. I recommend this trip to everyone and anyone, who likes movies and tv, and overall, people who like having a good time- 2 Thumbs Up !!

The tour was great way to get a taste of the various neighbourhoods in New York while seeing many TV and Movie locations. Our two 14 year old TV junkie sons loved it.

Three hours just didn't seem like enough time! The tour was fun and informative. Our tour guide knew a lot about movie and TV locations, and she even showed us where a handful of big-name celebrities live. It was nice to be able to stop at a few of the sites on the tour to see them up close, and our favorite was sitting on the steps of the Huxtables home from "The Cosby Show."

If you are a TV and movie buff, I would highly recommend it.

we were looking for another way to dicover NYC and I am very interested in TV series like Friends or The Cosby Show.

We wanted to see the real places we had been exposed to as teenagers & young adults while watching US TV series, US movies etc.

We're pleased with this tour. We only regret that we havent been shown the manhole where Marylin Monroe stands, making her white dress fly.

The comments by our host were really great. She knows a lot, she's fun, and she's available.

I think I could recommend this tour.

A very entertaining and informing journey, with a very good (and funny) guide.

Too expensive.

One person over in the States visiting daughter in NJ

As far as our guide, Erica, was concerned, she was splendid. Very enthusiastic about her subject (particularly 'Friends') and knowledgeable about films and TV in general. I suppose that very few interiors are filmed in NY but it would be more interesting if some more of these could be found. I was disappointed not to have any reference to 'When Harry Met Sally'; lots of which is filmed in New York and certainly the deli scene could have been shown at Katz Delicatessen. That might be an unreasonable criticism as it is a favourite film of mine and a tour cannot be expected to cover every person's favourite film.

Because a lot of clients are visitors from overseas, it might be better to focus more on film than TV as movies would be more familiar.

On the whole, I would recommend the tour and I certainly expect to look at movies filmed in NY differently in the future.

The tour was wonderful! I was amazed at how much we were able to see and do during three hours! Roseanne was so entertaining, and totally hel our interest. She offered TONS of great information about the city as well as the filming. Fact really did meet fiction in a terrific way! It was a great idea to show clips of the shows and movies we were talking about; it realy helped us to see the locations used. I've already recommended this tour two a frend and a co-worker who will be in NYC soon (One even this weekend)!
