"The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel Tour!!!!"

The Mrs.Maisel tour was marvelous! Each location was thoroughly explained with clips shown. The guide was eloquent and personified the character beautifully. We felt we were speaking directly with Mrs. Maisel. There weren't even any spoilers, so really, anyone can go on this tour. Very fun way to spend your weekend!

"Bus windows were dirty and DVD(s) kept skipping"

Positive: Roseanne, the tour guide was excellent. Negative: Everything else. Boring tour with old TV/Movie references...friends, Home Alone, etc. Needs a major update and less video to remind everyone of scenes and more soap and water to allow people to actually look out the window at places. Super disappointing tour and I have only a few pictures from the short time off the bus to remember the places seen.

"Great tour!!"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5

The on location tour was fantastic! Our tour guide Benji was amazing - he pointed out so many interesting things during our tour and answered lots of questions. It’s fascinating to see the “Friends” house in real life - it’s so small :-) I would have never recognized it, but it’s definitely worth to visit - as the area itself is also very picturesque. If you already did a typical NYC sight seeing tour and are looking for something more unique and interesting (and of course if you like pop culture, movies and TV shows) - then I would highly recommend this tour.

Frequently Asked Questions about When Harry Met Seinfeld Tour

Where does the tour start and end?
This tour starts and ends at 55th Street between 8th Ave & Broadway

Are we on the bus the whole tour?
Absolutely not. The tour takes place on a coach bus since the locations are spread out. 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.

Is this a good sightseeing tour?
Yes. The tour travels through much of Uptown 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 areas such as Upper West Side, Central Park and Upper East Side.

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.

Are food and drink included on the tour? Can I bring my own?
No food or drinks are served on the tour besides maybe a light snack, but you can 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, this tour is only conducted in English at this time. 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 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?Almost all of the buses used on the When Harry Met Seinfeld Tour have bathrooms, but in the event the bus does not have a bathroom, please be sure to use restroom facilities before attending the tour.

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. We make our best efforts to accommodate requests with less than 48 hours notice. The wheelchair lifts can accommodate up to approximately 600 pounds total; manual wheelchairs are recommended for this reason. Most buses are equipped with on-board restrooms. Buses are not equipped with lap or shoulder belts or harnesses. 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.
