"Great tour!"

Our tour guide was Gary and we thoroughly enjoyed our tour. Traffic in New York can be really slow on some days, like today, so our tour went pretty slowly. However, we got to see lots of tv and film sites and even got to see an episode FBI being filmed near the Hook and Ladder No. 8 station. I would highly recommend this tour. The stops are quick but you have plenty of time to take pictures and walk around a little.

"Movie places tour."

Never been to NYC before, so I found that just getting an address to meet at a store front seemed a bit difficult. Not that it being at an address, but nothing was there when we arrived including the tour guide holding an umbrella. We were concerned because we needed to get a cab or an Uber to get there. Secondly we had no idea where we would get dropped off at so that we could make our return to hotel arrangements. We were staying in NJ. Our drop off was at 42ns st. several blocks away from the port authority bus garage. It was freezing out and everyone we asked could not communicate clear directions for getting a bus, including the idiot working in the info booth at the bus garage. Back to the tour : The guide and driver were wonderful but the tour itself was pricey for what you got. Basically a bus ride through NYC.A couple of stops were made for store front pictures but that was about it. We also paid for priority seating which amounted to not much of nothing except paying an extra $10.00 Per Person.
