What to Expect

Hop on board this film location experience that collaborates with Turner Classic Movies for a one-of-a-kind sightseeing tour of the Big Apple to explore the most filmed city in the world!

 

Your guide has selected the best movie sites around Manhattan to share with you in person and in movie clips. Get a behind-the-scenes look at some of your favourite classic films set in New York City, as your guide entertains, informs and quizzes you with trivia questions while showcasing over 60 filming locations!

 

See the Empire State Building, featured in King Kong; shop at the market showcased in Manhattan and You’ve Got Mail, and take pictures where Marilyn Monroe’s skirt flew up in The Seven Year Itch. Then, go on location to Grand Central Terminal, seen in North by Northwest and Superman, match Central Park filming locations to movie clips from Thomas Edison Shorts to Ghostbusters, and enjoy a photo-op in front of the famous bridge seen in Woody Allen’s Manhattan.

 

Not only will you get a taste of New York film history, but you’ll also receive a great sightseeing tour of Manhattan. By comfortable coach, with AC in the summer and heat in the winter, we’ll take you to neighbourhoods rich with history, where some of the most iconic TCM films of all time were made.

Frequently Asked Questions

The exact itinerary and route of the tour vary somewhat from tour to tour, so we can’t say ahead of time exactly which locations will be visited on a specific tour. There are usually three to four scheduled stops on each tour, including various bars, shops and other locations – but tour routes may differ from tour to tour. You will be provided with a handout that lists many of the real-life locations on the tour so you can revisit them at your leisure afterwards.

Absolutely not! The tour takes place on a coach bus since the locations are spread out throughout the city. Each tour will get off the bus at a number of different 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 TV shows and movies that have portrayed them on the big and small screens.
