Fab tour around filming locations

This is a must do for everyone who is crazy about films and tv shows that have been filmed in NY. The tour covers so many locations and the tour guide adds a lot of interesting facts along the way too. Dina who was our tour guide was lovely, so knowledgeable, and patient. You will get out of the coach for the Ghostbusters fire station, Friends house, and Washington Square where e.g. Marvelous Mrs Maisel was filmed. Can't recommend it enough.
