"Mrs. Maisel's Marvelous Tour of NYC"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed January 14, 2020 NEW
If you are a fan of the Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, this tour is a must! Our tour guide, Mrs. Stephanie, was incredible! She was not only knowledgeable about so many facts and details from the show, but she was very entertaining! It was a lot of fun visiting different locations from the show and we loved being able to stop, take pictures, and grab drinks/snacks at some of the businesses where Midge, Susie, Joel, and other characters have been known to frequent. Do yourself a favor and take one or more of the tours offered by On Location Tours. You definitely will not be disappointed!

I took the tour Saturday, January 11th, 2020 and it was one of the best tours I have ever experienced! Stephanie was a "marvelous" tour guide - informative, funny and accommodating. The numerous sites we saw were delightful and relevant and I loved that we got to get out at several places and actually experience them. On Location Tours never disappoints! Carole P, Pennsylvania

The tour was incredible. Not that much of a walk and we got to the end exactly the time the tour guide said we would. My tour guide, George Hampton, was very kind and presented the movies very well. Recommend 100%. You get a tour of the Central Park and hear about movies. What else could you want?

Frequently Asked Questions about NYC TV & Movie Tour

What type of ticket should I buy if I'm bringing a very young child?
If a child is age five or younger and will be sitting on your lap during the entire tour, you do not need to purchase a ticket for them. If they will be requiring a seat, however, you will need to purchase a Child ticket. While young children are welcome on the tour, please be aware if your child proves disruptive or excessively restless, you may be asked to leave.


Where does the tour end?
The tour ends at 55th Street and 8th Avenue.


Are we on the bus the whole tour?
Absolutely not. The tour takes place on a coach bus since the locations are spread out all around Manhattan. But we get off the bus at a number of locations along the way, giving you the opportunity to experience the locations and take pictures. Whenever you leave the bus, it is with the tour guide. The tour includes a mix of on-the-bus viewings of locations and stops to get off the bus to explore, all woven into the story of how they relate to the TV shows and movies that have portrayed them.


Should I tip the tour guide?
Gratuities are not included in the price of the tour ticket. A tip for exemplary service is always appreciated, but never required.


Is there ever a circumstance when a location is omitted from the tour?
While it is extremely rare, we do sometimes need to skip or modify certain locations that usually are part of the tour. Since the tour is visiting real-life locations all around Manhattan, the tour's itinerary can sometimes be impacted by traffic conditions, store hours, etc. On Location Tours assumes no liability or responsibility for: traffic conditions, access to sites, or other conditions beyond its control.


Is this a good sightseeing tour?
Yes. The tour travels through much of Manhattan while highlighting the specific TV and movie locations that are the tour's focus. As a result, families and friends often find this tour an ideal way to tour the city. While the tour does not visit such Manhattan landmarks as the Statue of Liberty or Empire State Building, you will be visiting neighborhoods such as Greenwich Village, Chelsea, SoHo and the East Village.


Are food and drink included on the tour? Can I bring my own?
While food and drinks are not included in the cost of the tour, we do make a quick stop in SoHo where you can purchase a snack. In addition, please feel free to bring something of your own if it is neat and you're sure to remove all garbage from the bus at the end of the tour. Alcohol is completely prohibited on the bus.


Are the tours conducted in English only?
Yes, they are in English. Since so much of the tour is visual, however, visitors from countries such as Japan, Germany, France, Spain and many others have enjoyed the tour in English just the same!


What type of bus is used?
The tour is conducted on a closed coach bus. It is heated in the winter and air conditioned in the summer.


Is there assigned seating on the bus?
Seating is first come, first serve. If you have a number of people in your party that want to sit together, you should make sure to arrive 15-20 minutes early. Guests that arrive late or right at the starting time are much more likely to have to split up their group.


Is there a bathroom on the bus?
Yes.

Are the buses handicapped accessible?
Yes, but you need to contact On Location Tours directly before booking your tickets to arrange a wheelchair accessible bus, if needed. Buses are equipped with on-board restrooms. Buses are not equipped with lap or shoulder belts or harnesses. We are committed to providing accessible tours to persons with disabilities and are able to provide accessible vehicles for passengers with mobility impairments. Notice of the need for an accessible vehicle at least 24 hours in advance is strongly recommended so as to guarantee the timely provision of an accessible vehicle. The wheelchair lifts can accommodate up to approximately 600 pounds total. However, If you will be using a fold-up wheelchair and will be traveling with someone who can provide assistance on and off the bus, you do not need to inform us ahead of time as all of our buses have room in the luggage compartment to store it.


Are cameras allowed on the tour?
Yes. While photography and filming are not allowed on the bus portion of the tour, there are some great spots for taking photos and video at our numerous stops along the way.


Can I take a stroller or luggage on the tour?
The tour is conducted on a coach bus, so limited storage space is available. Please keep in mind that there will be several stops of up to 15-20 minutes each where we will be leaving the bus. If you are not comfortable leaving your belongings on the bus during this time, you might want to reconsider bringing them.
