Travel New York in a cozy coach bus, stopping along the way at filming locations for popular TV shows and movies during this guided tour led by an NYC actor. Leave the navigation to someone else as you relax on a climate-controlled bus that will keep you comfortable in any type of weather. Plus, because your guide is a New York actor, he or she will also share fun trivia about TV, movies, and the Big Apple in general.
What to Expect
Meet your guide and group at Ellen's Stardust Diner in New York’s Midtown, and hop aboard your comfortable coach bus for the tour. If you chose to upgrade, be one of the first people to board the bus, and choose your seating from the first four rows.

Pass by or stop at filming locations from TV shows such as Girls, Friends, Seinfeld, The Mindy Project, How I Met Your Mother, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and Glee. Movie locations you can see during this guided tour include I Am Legend, When Harry Met Sally, and Spider-Man.

Learn some cool insider info from your guide who is an actor in the industry in NYC. Since your guide is also a local expert, he or she will know the best routes to avoid traffic.

Your NYC tour ends with a drop-off back at the original departure point.
