Sex and the City TourBuy tickets now
The Sex and the City tour in New York is the best way to explore the world of Carrie, Samantha, Miranda and Charlotte. See film locations and other hotspots. The tour is ideal to enjoy with your sisters, mothers or girlfriends. On top of that, the Sex and the City show and the two films, are picked apart in detail with bloopers and various film locations. Knowing a little bit about the scenes and the plotline can come quite handy.
The Plaza Hotel
The Sex and the City Tour starts at the Pulitzer Fountain on Fifth Avenue between 58th and 59th Street. You can’t miss the fountain as it’s directly across the famous Plaza Hotel (yes, where Carrie’s true love Big celebrated his engagement to Natasha). Make sure you arrive at least 10 minutes early for a good spot on the bus and do not get too distracted by the fountain. Show your tickets to the guide and find a seat on the bus. The bus has air conditioning, a toilet and wifi, so you’ll have everything you need during the tour.
After the guide has introduced herself (mostly young women that are in the film or theatre industry) you will drive down the splendour of Fifth Avenue towards the first stop. The guide will tell you all about the film locations along the way.
The Sex and the City Tour takes a total of 3.5 hours and stops at different locations. You can look around the sex shop Pleasure Chest (where Charlotte bought her Rabbit). You will then stop by Carrie’s home, to take a selfie at the front door. You’ll get time to shop on the cute Bleecker Street, where you can get a cupcake at the famous Magnolia Bakery. Here you can also stop by Sarah Jessica Parker’s shoe store, where you can buy a pair of exclusive shoes with a 10% discount. The last stop of the tour will take you to “Scout” that Steve and Aidan opened together. The bar is actually called Onieal’s. The inside of the bar looks exactly like you’d remember from Sex and the City. And, of course, the cosmopolitans are ready and waiting at the bar. The cocktails are unfortunately not free due to the strict American laws concerning alcohol, but you can enjoy a cosmopolitan just like Carrie, Samantha, Miranda and Charlotte did for $17.
Tours are often sold out, make sure to buy your tickets in advance to secure your seat on the bus. After purchasing you will receive a voucher that you can print and use as your ticket for the tour, or show as a mobile ticket on your phone.
