On Location Tours Turns 21!
We’re turning 21! On June 12th, 1999 we started showing people from all over the world the most iconic locations from TV shows and movies around New York City. While our tours currently feature hundreds of locations to everything from the original King Kong to the new Avengers franchise, the company comes from humble origins.
On Location Tour’s founder, Georgette Blau’s story is a fascinating one as she moved to New York City directly after college and came across an Upper East Side building from The Jefferson’s, a show that ended in the 80’s. She quickly realized just how many various filming locations New York City offered and not a single tour to explore the filming scene. In 1999 she dreamed big and launched a NYC TV & Movie Tour using a tiny van holding a maximum of 15 passengers! By 2001 the tour had grown in popularity and a transition to coach buses was quickly made. This same tour is still active to this day and remains among the most popular of choices for TV and movie enthusiasts worldwide.
Over the last 21 years, On Location Tours has grown into one of the East Coast’s most popular tourist attractions, serving over 100,000 tourists and locals annually.
Join us in celebrating our 21st anniversary and many more to come!
