"Definitely do the “NYC TV & Movie Tour” & Skip “Marvelous Mrs. Maisel Tour”"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed May 16, 2020
I went on the “NYC TV & Movie Tour” and the “Marvelous Mrs. Maisel Tour” both of which take place in large tour busses. On the “NYC TV & Movie Tour”, it was fun to watch clips of a variety of tv & film scenes set in NYC and then see them in real life! It was a bit pricey but definitely worth it as you travel through a good amount of Manhattan & it teaches you where you want to re-visit! I live in NYC and even I discovered some new areas. The two highlights of the tour were visiting the Friends apartment & The Ghost Busters Fire Station. The 3 hour tour goes by quickly! I also went on the Marvelous Mrs. Maisel Tour because I’m a big fan of the show. Personally, I would not recommend it to others given the price and what you receive. We drove around a small radius of Manhattan and many of the locations were just used as exteriors (e.g. the awning of a building) so you really have to use your imagination. The ones that weren't you could easily have looked them up on your phone and visited them yourself such as La Bonbonnierre or Music Inn. Two of the main stops on the tour were also bars. We were given 10 minutes in each bar which wasn’t enough time to sit down and enjoy a drink so most just chugged their drinks & left. It also wasn’t a fun stop for non-drinkers because the novelty of standing in bar can only be appreciated for so long. Although the tour could use some tweaks, there were some good aspects. For example, the tour around Washington Square Park was interesting, I loved yelling “we got the rabbi” outside of the deli, and I enjoyed hearing behind the scenes secrets of the show.

"The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel Tour of NYC"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5

On Location Tours is literally the best tour service in NYC. I went on the new Marvelous Mrs. Maisel tour and it wasn’t only a great way to see parts of the city I’ve never seen before, but I got to relive scenes from the show in person, and learned behind the scenes information that I wouldn’t have known otherwise. Not to mention the stories and history behind the actual locations. Also, can’t ask for a better team than the one at On Location Tours. Erin and Lauren are incredible and made it such a fun and immersive tour. They also went above and beyond to help me figure out my way around the area. So friendly and amazing, as was the group I got to take the tour with. I can’t say enough good things about this experience. I can’t wait to come back and do another tour!

Our tour guide Melissa is perfect for this tour! The tour has great energy, and we were laughing from start to finish because of Melissa. Totally worthwhile spending three hours with her on the tour, even if you’re not the biggest fan of SATC.
