Have you ever wanted to feed the pigeons in the same location where Macaulay Culkin fed them in Home Alone 2? Or perhaps you would like to see the apartment where Buddy the Elf stayed with his dad during the infamous movie, Elf!
You can do both of these along with much, much more courtesy of the myriad of New York City movie tours available courtesy of On Location Tours. Plus at the end of this article, we are delighted to provide you with an opportunity to win 2 tickets for a movie/TV tour of your choice courtesy of our partnership with On Location Tours.
Who are On Location Tours?
When you read the mission statement of On Location Tours and hear that they are focused on allowing people the opportunity to straddle fiction and reality, you know you are on to a real winner with them.
On Location Tours was founded in 1999 and history shows that iconic landmarks in movies are popular tourist attractions, therefore it was a natural decision to develop such an eye-catching opportunity in New York City.
Why use On Location Tours?
I am not a huge movie buff but strangely enough the majority of movies I recall from years gone by all have iconic scenes taken in New York City. Central Park is of course a legendary hotspot in a number of movies including the memorable romantic moment between John Cusack and Kate Beckinsale during Serendipity at the Wollman Ice Rink.
But these movie tours are much more than just reminiscing the movies of years gone by. Take the opportunity to check out some of the famed locations from your favorite TV shows such as Friends and Sex and the City. Wouldn’t you just love to check out the apartment building from Friends or maybe see where Carrie and Big had their wedding rehearsal dinner!
As Frank Sinatra infamously started his hit, “New York, New York”…
“Start spreading the news, I’m leaving today. I want to be a part of it”….
And of course we all know the rest. Well, I think this pretty much sums up my interpretation of the ultimate 24 hour city of the world, New York City – I want to be a part of it and honestly I couldn’t think of any better way to explore this city by taking in the abundance of attractions available on one of the On Location Movie Tours.
New York City On Location Movie Tours
The most difficult decision you will face is figuring out exactly which tour you want to take. Here is a listing of those available in New York City:
- New York TV & Movie Sites Tour
- Sex and the City Hotspots Tour
- TMZ Tour NYC

A pretty vast selection to choose from but perhaps taking multiple tours would be the best option especially if you plan on staying in the Big Apple for a few days.
Holiday Lights and Movie Sites Tour
With the holiday season right around the corner, this is a perfect time to experience the Holiday Lights and Movie sites tour courtesy of On Location Tours. For 2 ½ hours starting out at The Shops at Columbus Circle, you are taken on a breathtaking tour of many of the prominent sights in Christmas movies.
Without giving too much away, I mentioned a couple of movies in the opening paragraph of this post that are highlighted throughout this tour. However, there are many others that will likely spark your interest and possibly bring back childhood memories of watching Christmas movies the night before Christmas!
