"Really enjoyable Movie and TV tour"

Our guide George was extremely friendly and took the time to chat to everybody as we walked around the park. A good mix of film and TV trivia with some interesting facts about local buildings thrown in too. Just the right pace to be able to take photos but not get bored in one location.

"Central Park TV & Movie Sites tour worth doing just for Central Park"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5

Hi! My last roommate who was awesome had told me to watch the movie Serendipity on the plane if I saw it. So I decided on this tour because it referenced that movie and didn't really know what to expect otherwise. I say that because if, like me, you're not familiar with the TV or film references, it's still worth checking out just to familiarize yourself with Central Park which is amazingly beautiful with it's lakes, bridges, statues and landscapes. Another highlight, though, was seeing movie clips with backdrops of areas we were standing in which was nice. My guide whom I recommend was George Hampe who's laid-back, chill and good at engaging people in conversation; I was actually surprised he remembered my name at the end of the tour. Looking at the who's who of guides for this tour, however, I was surprised that they're mostly actors which I think is super cool. So you get people who are truly movie buffs! Anyway, I really enjoyed myself on the tour! 🙂

Everything about this tour was great. From the moment our guide greeted us and we boarded the coach it was fun. Our guide Max made us laugh and provided insights to locations were various movies and tv shows were shot in New York... Do yourself a favour and do this tour when in New York ...

"Gossip girl tour"

Reviewed August 15, 2019 NEW
Although never watched an episode of Gossip girl ( daughter is the big fan ) thoroughly enjoyed the tour. Air conditioned coach and a fab tour guide Shay. Was funny and interesting and nearly 3 hours long. You could hop off the bus to take photos at memorable locations which was a nice touch. If you are a fan it really is a must have thing to do while in New York and if your not like myself its just fun to be part of.
