Movie sites bus tour

Meet the experienced guide, who is sometimes an actor, at a Times Square location. Here, you board the bus for a three-hour tour through Manhattan. Filming movies and TV shows are a daily occurrence in New York so there are many places that you will recognise from the big screen. The bus takes you past many well-known film locations, and along the way, you will see clips of the films that were shot there. Places such as the Empire State Building, which plays a central role in the classic movie King Kong. Also, a market that you will recognise from both Manhattan and You’ve Got Mail. In addition, you’ll see the subway grate responsible for Marilyn Monroe’s famous skirt scene. This tour is a great way to combine your love of film with sightseeing in Manhattan!

Eric’s Tip: During the tour, you stop at a number of locations to take photos. One of those stops is at Zabar’s, a food store with dishes from all over the world. If there is enough time then I definitely recommend getting something delicious.
