Mom Entertainment Blogger: When Harry Met Seinfeld Tour: by Robin Gorman Newman

onlocationtoursOn Location Tours, a leading TV and movie tour company, recently launched the When Harry Met Seinfeld Tour, and we were invited on as guests.

The two-hour bus tour offers a look at TV & movie locations above Times Square, beginning north of Times Square, heading through the Upper West and Upper East Sides, with some scenic views of Central Park.

The When Harry Met Seinfeld Tour is inspired by such shows as Seinfeld and romantic comedies including When Harry Met Sally and You’ve Got Mail.  Locations from recent films and shows like Trainwreck, Pitch.Perfect, The Amazing Spider-Man, Gossip Girl and The Other Guys are included.   And, three stops are made along the way where you can exit for a photo opportunity and a snack.

All tours are led by local actors and actresses who share insider information and behind-the-scenes stories. The tour highlights over 40 sites from over 50 TV shows and movies that filmed in these neighborhoods.

We enjoyed.  The bus was comfortable (even featured a bathroom), and it was a full house with tourists from all over. It was fun to be in their company and to see the cameras clicking away as they got jazzed over the various destinations.

I’m a huge Seinfeld fan, and thought it was a great way in general to see parts of the city.  Plus, they play clips of the shows and films on the bus so that you can see on the screen what you are passing on the bus.

Our guide, Amadeo, and comedic actor, was entertaining, and they raffled off a tote bag.  A lucky woman from Mexico won.

The When Harry Met Seinfeld Tour runs Thursdays and Saturdays at 3:00 PM. The tour costs $37 for adults and $21 for children. Tickets can be purchased at or by calling 212-913-9780.



Note: We toured as guests of the company, but our opinions are our own.
