My gf got this tour for me as we came in from London. The guide Paul told us a lot of comic geek info like Kyptonite was invent so the actor who played Superman on the radio could take a vacation! And to stand in the same spot and see where they filmed THE AVENGERS was a thrill. Take it... More

After living a whole year in New York with almost no time to visit it, I decided to book this tour with a friend. I got to know about it by chance 6 months before while visiting Jim Hanley's comic book shop next to the Empire State University. Paul was there talking to the people he was taking on a... More

The meeting place for the Superhero tour was a comic book shop - an expensive place to start the tour as several books were purchased. There was one other nerd on our tour, our guide was very knowledgeable and my Superhero loving teenage daughter was very engaged by the information he passed on. The tour was only $40 each, but...

I booked this trip as my brother in law was big into comics. There were 4 of us and we had the guide all to ourselves. He was a great guide and really knew his stuff about super heroes. He showed us some hidden gems around New York and was happy to take some pictures for us. At the end... More

We took the Superhero tour in New York. The guide was perfect--he really knew his stuff! The main problem with the tour was that he spoke to the person who was walking next to him (my husband, who was clearly the most interested in the subject matter). The rest of us, trying to keep up on the busy, noisy sidewalks,... More

As an avid fan of Sex and the City I was soooo excited to have the opportunity to go on this trip and see some of the locations used in the programme! There was some good reviews on the Celebrity Planet website so my boyfriend kindly paid for the tour for both of us. So, we arrived at the meeting... More

I turned up at the appointed meeting place, 15 mins before the tour started, as requested....... NO ONE TURNED UP!!! Or bothered to call me to let me know the tour was cancelled!!!! If I was you I wouldn't risk it! There are lots of companies that offer tours, this one is not worth the risk!!

I recently took the Celebrity Planet Sex and the City walking tour and was fortunate enough to be the only passenger along for the ride (or walk, as it were). This was immediately great as the guide, Kevin, was able to tailor to my needs. I had picked the tour as I was really interested in the Chelsea and Meatpacking... More

my comic/super hero tour was truly great, it appealed to the comic fan in me but also to my 51yr old father, who is a fan of the old George Reeves superman movies. It was awesome seeing landmarks and buildings that have appeard in films, visiting the apartment buildings where comic legends used to live and also just a great... More
