Comments about Smart Destinations Central Park Movie Sites Walking Tour by On Location Tours:

We really enjoyed this tour through Central Park. We had Max who was fantastic and really knew his stuff. It was a small group and Max helped us take photos at the most prominent locations. The tour guides have an iPad to show you pictures from the movies of the sites that you are seeing. We got the tour through the NY Explorer pass and would really recommend it as a fun way to see the park.

Comments about Smart Destinations Central Park Movie Sites Walking Tour by On Location Tours:

Walking through Central Park with our tour guide Staci, really added to our enjoyment and understanding of the park. As we walked through the different areas, she pointed out locations and movies that had been shot there. Now that we're home, we've watched Vanilla Sky and Ghostbusters and it adds another dimension to the film. I still have a list of movies that were shot on those locations. It was lightly raining that day but it only made the tour more fun. The tour ended at the Tavern on the Green and so after we dried off, we stopped in and had a brandy and lunch by the fire. We thoroughly enjoyed the old New York charm. I would highly recommend this tour and Staci as a tour guide.

A piece of Paradise
By Simone Verified Reviewer from Sao Paulo, BR on
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Smart Destinations Central Park Movie Sites Walking Tour by On Location Tours:

Central Park is a piece of paradise in the middle of the craziness of NYC. This tour was amazing not only by the fact that we were in the location of so many movies, but also because our awesome guide, Brienne, told us some very interesting historic facts about the park and the city. So even if you're not a great movies fan, the tour is worth.
