This activity hit the spot to hold the interest of the young and old. If you are any kind of tv sitcom fan, you would enjoy the sights and sounds of the Villages (East and West) and especially the bookstore where You've Got Mail was filmed. Our guide, Erica, was excellent! She was full of knowledge about her subjects. pointed out many interesting sights on the side, was

articulate, humorous and had great rapport with her tourists.

Although we enjoyed this activity, we were dissapointed with a few aspects. First, the Saturday afternoon tour we had made a reservation for weeks in advance and planned other activities around was cancelled. We were notified 4 days in advance. The staff was apologetic and rescheduled our tour for the day before (Friday), but it disrupted other things that we had planned. The second frustration was a technical difficulty that the tape with clips from the TV shows and movies filmed at the locations we toured was not functioning until the very end of the tour. We ultimately were able to see the scenes, but spent a long time watching the tour guide fight with the VCR rather than provide us with information about our surroundings. Finally, we both left a bit disappointed having expected to see more filming sites than we did. Perhaps our expectations were just too high. The locations we did see and the time the tour guide spent giving the tour were enjoyable. We would reccommend this activity to others, but hope that our experiences being rescheduled and having technical problems were just a bad day and not a common feature of the company's tours.

We found it extremely enjoyable, we saw alot of Manhattan on the bus ride, and of course being TV/movie watchers (which is why we took the tour) saw lots of interesting places. We especially liked hearing all the info about where the stars live. The guide was excellent. We loved the tour.

This tour was wonderful! We are HUGE Friends fans, and we got to see where they "live". For star-stricken people, this tour is great. Seeing where the taping took place, where celebrities live, and hearing stories behind the tapings is awesome. Our tour guide, Erica, was great. She was very informative and knew her information well. She recommended this restaurant called Serendipity that we should eat at, so we went, and it was wonderful. Great tour!

Really enjoyed this event on the last morning of our 3 week stay in NY; our tour guide was fun and approachable with a good range of background knowledge about facts & trivia.

The Cosby Show references are somewhat outdated for Europeans now as it hasn't been broadcast for a long time and I felt standing around on private property in St. Luke's Place,Greenwich, inappropriate, as the old Cosby show house is actually home to an elderly gentleman who I was told by another local, is upset by groups invading his privacy.

Additionally, as the bus stopped at various locations, a few extra seconds to take photos would have made it more worthwhile. So the visit in to Mayer Schafer's cheese/antiques shop was great.

I have already recommended this activity to a relative who is coming to NY in Sept. and it was definitely something I'm glad we included on our itinerary.

Overall the tour was good and fun. The tour guide was knowledgeable and interesting. She has a great personality for a tour such as this. The one thing I was disappointed in was not being able to stop at certain sites more often. Not that I expected to tour each site, but at least to get a quality photo from outside the bus. Too often there was something that peaked my interest, but we passed by it so quickly that I couldn't get a picture ie: the site from the movie SLEEPERS where the boys dumped the hot dog cart down the flight of stairs. I love that movie and would have loved a photo of that.

Otherwise I enjoyed it and would recommend it to others.

Wish we had been in a double decker bus so that we could see sites from either side of bus and have a clear view to take photos.

I thought the tour was pretty good. It covered a lot of ground and the movie clips were a nice touch. However, 3 hours of looking out a window made it a little tedious. I would recommend it to other visitors.
