    Steven (Stephen?) was very knowledgeable and nice. Made it a great experience even with the worst weather. Didn't realize it would be just me so that was a new experience but that made it more personal.

    The three hour tour was excellent. Our tour guide, Steven (or is it Stephen?), was very knowledgeable and personable. His movie trivia questions were challenging and fun. I highly recommend this tour.

    We had a wonderful time on our tour. Sarah was very knowledgeable and friendly. A week later, we're still talking about our tour. Highly recommended!

    Enjoyed the tour very much. It was informational and our guide was very nice. It was a pleasant and quiet change from all the holiday crowds in mid-town. The one draw back was that the windows of the bus were not too clean, making it difficult to see at times

    Jason our guide was great. We had a fun time checking out classic film locations. Its also a fun look at Manhattan.

    Overall, the tour was a good one. Although, it was not something for someone who already knows NYC. Having previously lived in the city for 4 years, it was a bit underwhelming. Although the guide was extremely charming.

    We’re big classic movie fans. Big roomy comfortable bus picked us up in central location. Made many stops to get out and pullovers to view locations. Little video clips were played to compare current locale with the film. Jason the guide was terrific, very personable, and knew so much info on different movies, AND was happy to answer all the questions. Glad to be on the bus due to rain. With New York traffic you’ll never cover ALL the great spots in 3hrs, they did a great job cramming in ass much as they could. We went on the TCM cruise afterward, this was a great addition. Thank you Jason for a great time.

    I have taken a previous tour from this company and it was fabulous. For this tour, I bought my husband, 15 yr old daughter, and my parents. It was perfect! We got to see so many sights - many we would never have known what was without the tour. Everyone enjoyed it! My husband loved getting fresh bread from Zabar's. Jason is very knowledgeable about NYC and was able to answer all our questions. I look forward to taking future tours with On Location Tours!

    Entertaining and interesting three hours spent with a great guide and very nice guy, Jason, as we made our way around New York City with plenty of film clips, behind-the-scenes knowledge, trivia, and information about our favorite classic movies (and TV shows, too).
