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.

I was not sure how this tour would go, but I LOVED IT! If you are a fan of the show, this is the perfect tour for you. Air conditioned bus with bathroom, all the main sights from the show, and a great, enthusiastic tour guide. The tour does a great job of showing you a clip from the show, and then you see the location in real life. It helps jog your memory, and shows you how TV can make things look so different. Definitely recommend for all fans of the show.

We had a fantastic time on the Sex & the City Bus Tour with On Location Tours. Our tour guide, Elyse, was fantastic and made sure that we had a wonderful time. There was a healthy balance between riding on the bus and getting off to explore. Would highly recommend for a bachelorette weekend in NYC.

Frequently Asked Questions about Gossip Girl Sites

Where does the tour end?
Near Grand Central Station.

Are we on the bus the whole tour?
Absolutely not. The tour takes place on a coach bus since the locations are spread out all around Manhattan. But we get off the bus at a number of locations along the way, giving you the opportunity to experience the locations and take pictures. Whenever you leave the bus, it is with the tour guide. The tour includes a mix of on-the-bus viewings of locations and stops to get off the bus to explore, all woven into the story of how they relate to the hit series Gossip Girl!

Is there ever a circumstance when a location is omitted from the tour?
While it is extremely rare, we do sometimes need to skip or modify certain locations that usually are part of the tour. Since the tour is visiting real-life locations all around Manhattan, the tour's itinerary can sometimes be impacted by traffic conditions, store hours, etc. On Location Tours assumes no liability or responsibility for: traffic conditions, access to sites, or other conditions beyond its control.

Is there an age limit on this tour?
Children under 9 years old, including babies, are unfortunately not allowed on the tour, as the content of the tour and several of its stops are not suitable for young children. Additionally, any person under the age of 15 must be accompanied by a person at least 15 years of age or older at all times.

Should I tip the tour guide?
Gratuities are not included in the price of the tour ticket. A tip for exemplary service is always appreciated, but never required.

Is this a good sightseeing tour?
Yes. The tour travels through much of Manhattan while highlighting the specific Gossip Girl locations that are the tour's focus. As a result, families and friends often find this tour an ideal way to tour the city. While the tour does not visit such Manhattan landmarks as the Statue of Liberty or Empire State Building, you will be visiting neighborhoods such as Meatpacking District, the Lower East Side, and the Upper East Side.

Are food and drink included on the tour? Can I bring my own?
No food or drinks are served on the tour, but you can feel free to bring something of your own if it is neat and you're sure to remove all garbage from the bus at the end of the tour. There may be a few quick stops where you can grab something during the tour. Alcohol is completely prohibited on the bus.

Are the tours conducted in English only?
Yes, the Gossip Girl Sites tour is only conducted in English at this time. Since so much of the tour is visual, however, visitors from countries such as Japan, Germany, France, Spain and many others have enjoyed the tour just the same!

What type of bus is used?
The tour is conducted on a closed coach bus. It is heated in the winter and air conditioned in the summer.

Is there assigned seating on the bus?
Seating is first come, first serve. If you have a number of people in your party that want to sit together, you should make sure to arrive 15-20 minutes early. Guests that arrive late or right at the starting time are much more likely to have to split up their group.

Is there a bathroom on the bus?
Almost all of the buses used on the Gossip Girl Sites tours have bathrooms.

Are the buses handicapped accessible?
Yes, but you need to contact On Location Tours directly before booking your tickets to arrange a wheelchair accessible bus, if needed. Buses are not equipped with lap or shoulder belts or harnesses. We are committed to providing accessible tours to persons with disabilities and are able to provide accessible vehicles for passengers with mobility impairments. Notice of the need for an accessible vehicle at least 24 hours in advance is strongly recommended so as to guarantee the timely provision of an accessible vehicle. The wheelchair lifts can accommodate up to approximately 600 pounds total. However, If you will be using a fold-up wheelchair and will be traveling with someone who can provide assistance on and off the bus, you do not need to inform us ahead of time as all of our buses have room in the luggage compartment to store it.

Are cameras allowed on the tour?
Yes. While photography and filming are not allowed on the bus portion of the tour, there are some great spots for taking photos and videos at our numerous stops along the way.
