Tour description provided by Viator

Take a guided tour of New York sites from your favorite movies and television shows, including ‘Friends,’ Birdman,’‘Girls’ and ‘Glee.’ On this must-do tour, your entertaining and in-the-know guide — an actor with insider knowledge— takes you to dozens of recognizable locations from TV and film. You’ll catch a glimpse of the Daily Bugle offices featured in ‘Spider-Man’ and spot the legendary Original Soupman who inspired a character featured on ‘Seinfeld,’ among many others. Come ready to sing your favorite show theme songs. Upgrade for priority coach seating!

Make your way to Midtown Manhattan to board a comfortable coach where you’ll meet your guide, a New York City actor who has appeared in movies or on television. Upgrade for priority seating that includes pre-boarding in the first four rows for close access to the guide.

During the 2.5-hour narrated tour you’ll see familiar buildings from TV’s most popular shows and movie locations. In addition to showing you a number of celebrity homes, your guide points out where the cast of Glee performed the song 'I Love New York' and hot spots from Person of Interest, Girls, The Mysteries of Laura, The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and more.

Visit the gang’s apartment building from Friends and the park featured in The Mindy Project and When Harry Met Sally; stop by McGee's Pub, the inspiration for MacLaren's in How I Met Your Mother, and see the pub that Michael Keaton hung out at in Birdman; and glimpse the hotel featured in American Hustle.

This entertaining overview of Manhattan takes you on a journey to the Upper West Side and across Central Park to the Upper East Side before descending down Fifth Avenue through the East Village, Tribeca and the West Village, ending in Midtown.
