What a wonderful experience. I was traveling by myself and found this was a perfect experience for me. Our guide, Max, offered to take pictures of myself as well as others in the group. The information at each site and the stops along the way were exciting .

We enjoyed our When Harry met Sally tour and Benji was entertaining and knowledgeable. Great way to see the upper side of the City too. I will say- make a note that when you stop at Cafe Lola be sure to have cash if you don’t want to spend more than $10 on a pastry. Also, the workers were highly annoyed with our group because we created a line inside the restaurant verses out side on the stairs. Cafe Lola was neat but customer service was less to be desired.

"Fantastic tour!"

Disclaimer: I'm not a diehard Sex in the City fan. I enjoy the show, but never watched it religiously (or cultishly) like many who were on the tour. But even as a general enthusiast (and a male), I would highly recommend this tour and was entertained from start to finish. Our guide, Elyse, was an encyclopedia of Sex in the City info. Almost scary how much she knows - but maybe that's common of true devotees? Anyhow, she was ridiculously fun. Witty. Energetic. And injected the perfect amount of crude banter that mirrored the humor on the show. All in all - it was a great afternoon. I've never taken a bus tour, but this was a ton of fun and added nice spin to seeing some iconic NY sites.
