Description

Sex And The City Walking Tour

Take a walk through the real life locations made famous by Carrie and the girls in the hit show Sex and the City! See where they live, work, party, and fall in (and out) of love. Much of SATC was/is shot on location in New York’s über-cool Greenwhich Village and Meatpacking District. It makes perfect sense then to visit these streets on foot just like Carrie and the girls, but with an expert local guide keeping you in the picture!

Itinerary

  • Meat Packing District Uber-cool New York neighborhood of trendy restaurants and nightlife venues for that up-all-night vibe a la SATC!

  • Standard New York’s coolest hotel made infamous by hotel guests giving voyeuristic displays behind the floor-to-ceiling glass windows...!
  • Tortilla Flats The Mexican restaurant Carrie dragged Miranda and Steve to in a disastrous attempt to get back together with Aidan...fail!
  • Greenwich Village Still the trendiest area in New York, just!
  • Magnolia Bakery The world famous Greenwich Village bakery whose ‘to die for’ cupcakes were featured in the show
  • John Lennon's NYC apartment John and Yoko's first apartment, where their love blossomed
  • The Stoop Carrie’s famous stoop (front staircase) where you have seen her trip up, flounce down, and chat with Big and other boyfriends

  1. Sex & the City tour: unexpectedly engaging even for a non-fan

    by HK on 14 Jan 2011

    I booked the Sex and the City walking tour for my sister who's visiting from out of town and loves the show. (She's a Charlotte, apparently.) I've never particularly been interested in it, but figured I could deal with hearing about it for an hour and a half.

    Our tour guide (Melissa, I think) was fantastic. She was so into the show and knew so many details that I found myself actually caring. Then - and I really didn't expect this - in between the show's landmarks, she pointed out historical landmarks and facts that I never knew about. Despite having lived in New York for 10+ years, I had never been to the High Line and knew nothing about its past. The way she went back and forth between talking about the show and New York's history was brilliant and made the time fly by.

    My only criticism is that our tour started at 6pm - half an hour later it was too dark to take decent pictures. If you go, book an earlier tour!

    When we got home, we watched a few episodes. (My sis brought her DVDs.) I totally recognized the cupcake store we stopped at on the tour while watching! While I still hate Sarah Jessica Parker, the rest of the girls are okay. lol. So thank you, Melissa (or was it Michelle?) for giving me something to talk to my sister about.
  2. Sex and culture!

    I loved this tour! The guide was so knowledgeable about the show and the area. And what a great area of town! I have been to NYC several times and have NEVER seen The Meatpacking District or Greenwich Village. So cute! I spent the next day after the tour going back to all the place that the guide suggested. (Great tip about Murray's Cheese, thanks again) Loved it and would certainly do it again!
  3. Loved it!

    What a great tour. Took a friend for her birthday and she loved it! Bert was so much fun and knew SOO much about NYC! We saw several locations from the show and lots of other cool sights from other shows and movies set in the City. Highly recommended!
