Comments about Smart Destinations NY TV and Movie Sites Tour by On Location Tours:

This was the worst tour for several reasons: 1. Getting the ticket itself was difficult as you enter a hidden building on the west side all for a piece of paper stating where to meet up for the bus. 2. The tour was one of those ones you could do yourself if you googled where the relevant locations are (e.g. The Friends building) and used the subway. 3. The tour guide showed clips of movies as we went past buildings in a coach making it difficult to take pictures, partly because the windows were tinted but also because we were not allowed to stop at certain points so we just drove by. Save your money and go on your own movie tour by finding out where the sites are from the movies you have seen rather than spend three hours in a coach being driven past them!
