This was a fun tour if you are interested in seeing the upper east side of Manhattan and some of the locations from the tv show Gossip Girl. It was a smaller group so instead of a tour bus , we had a van transporting us from one stop to the next. The tour guide was knowledgeable enough about the buildings and locations that specifically were used for filming. She also threw in a few trivia questions. Overall it was a nice tour. It wasn’t quite what I expected but it was still fun.

An absolute must for all Gossip Girl fans! Our tour guide Natalie was brand new and therefore seemed well prepared and motivated. She entertained us with many facts about the series and there was also a small quiz. We stopped by a lot of locations and even got off at some, like the Met Steps, Grand Central Station or the Empire Hotel. There Natalie always willingly offered to take photos of everyone. The tour was rounded off by two original Laduree macarons per person, which were included in the price. Unfortunately, the weather didn't quite cooperate with our tour, it would certainly have been even better if the weather had been nice! The only point of criticism is that the tour only lasted 2 hours instead of the stated 3 hours, which I found quite a pity considering the price. But all in all definitely recommended!

It was amazing ! I loved the tour! The guide was very good and very nice, and it was exciting to see all the places in the series. There are a few stops along the way, very well chosen, where there is time for some shopping and for photos. During the bus ride the guide told anecdotes, showed some clips and even an interview with one of the characters! Truly a unique experience.
