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 watch clips of the movies 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 of combining 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 selling specialities from all over the world. If you have enough time, I definitely recommend grabbing something delicious here.
