On Location Tour bus

Update: This competition is now closed. The winner has been confirmed: Zarina de Ruiter – congratulations!

I recently spent some time taking part in an ‘On Location’ tour in New York City. I’m a little bit of a T.V. buff (OK a lot!) so this was the perfect way for me to see some of the sights that are familiar from my favourite T.V. shows – Sex and the City anybody? 🙂

With that, I’m running a competition that gives you the chance to win 2 tickets to an On Location Tours tour of your choice in either Boston or New York City.

Don’t worry if you have no immediate plans to visit either city, the tour certificate never expires and the winner is free to redeem the prize at his/her convenience for any of the tours available.

New York has so much to offer for film and T.V. fans – here’s some trivia for you:

  • Did you know that the first presentation of 3D films before a paying audience took place at Manhattan’s Astor Theater on June 10, 1915.
  • Law & Order is the longest running drama series on primetime television. It holds the Emmy record for Outstanding Drama Series nominations and is filmed entirely in New York
  • A majority of 80% Sex and the City was filmed in New York City
  • Saturday Night Live has been broadcast from New York City since 1975. The show is both the highest-rated and longest-running late night show in television history
  • Sopranos is the most watched original show on pay/subscription and free cable and is again based in New York.

On Location Tours will show you a new way to see the Big Apple, the most filmed city in the world. The New York City tours provide a front row seat to the best of the cities landmarks; from the Empire State Building to Times Square to Central Park to Grand Central Station. All licensed tour guides are local actors and actresses providing an insider perspective to give you a real piece of the lights, camera, action, an experience that you’ll never forget.

To enter the competition, all you need to do is sign up to follow this blog and post a comment about your favourite New York based T.V. show/ film and why.

  1. My favourite New York based TV show is, of course, Friends. It’s a series I absolutely never tire of, even owning the DVDs I happily watch reruns when I catch them on TV 😀

    (I’m actually going on holiday to New York soon, from London, and this prize would be a perfect addition to the trip!)


    1. Thanks for the comment Zarina and a great recommendation. Friends would be a great tour to do, especially to see the Pulitzer Fountain and other sights that were used for the show.


      1. Yes, the fountain would be so cool! 😀 To be honest, I watch a lot of TV-shows and films that are set in NYC so it’ll be awesome to see any of these familar places when my friend and I visit the city (we’ve just booked our tickets for May, whoop!)


      2. That’s such a good time to visit (hopefully you’ll experience milder weather than I did!) Have a great time there and good luck with your entry 🙂


  2. I watch blue bloods, golden boy, CSI ny, two broke girls, snl, jimmy Fallon, etc

    I just left nyc last Monday can’t wait to go back.

    Would live to see the places where gossip girl was shot, loved that series the most.


    1. I would love to win tickets to CSI and go on the tour in New York City
      Are there any tours for Steiner Studio in Brooklyn on Flushing Ave


  3. My Favorite NY based T.V show has to be Sex and the City! I’m sure that there’s a little of each character in me and I can relate to so many of the episodes. (And I love the fashion!)


  4. Sex & the city has to be my fave show set in ny. Not only was the show current and gave ground breaking story lines for females, it made ny look amazing from the Bronx to the classy streets of Manhatan.
    Love,love,love ny! Will truly miss sex & the city.


  5. My vote goes to Gossip Girl. It made NYC look so stylish and glamorous, even in places outside of Manhattan like Brooklyn. I wanna see the sites where Blair and Serena had their adventures!


  6. Sex & The City bc it is why I first fell in love with NYC. Then Gossip Girl just reaffirmed that everlasting love!


  7. My favourite New York based TV show is classic Sopranos. I still cant believe its over!
    Im on honeymoon in New York at the start of May and will be going on one of the tours regardless!


    1. Thanks for your comment Alan, Sopranos was definitely a big hit (I’d love to do that tour myself). Enjoy New York for your honeymoon, the city definitely has a lot to offer.


  8. Ok, so even though my all-time favorite is good old Friends, I’ve gotta say that I really love a newer show ‘on the block’ – Suits. It’s nail-biting plots and edge-of-your-seat drama, married with the charm, humor and ingenious characters makes it one of my new TV favs. I’m heading to NYC in June to meet a friend ‘halfway’ from Oz and this tour sounds great! And if we could only both bump into a certain Mr Harvey Specter (Gabriel Macht)…cue drool…I think we may just be the happiest girls in NYC 🙂


  9. My favourite would have to collectively be the New York Movies – it’s those little glimpses of buildings and of course the Manhatten skyline which truly sets the scene in a movie. Who can forget Katz Deli in When Harry Met Sally, Home Alone and Crocodile Dundee! My personal favourite would have to be staring in that window on 5th Avenue dressed as Holly Golightly!
