About this New York tour
HBO's Sex and the City had four main characters: Carrie, Charlotte, Samantha, and Miranda. But you could argue that New York City itself was the Fifth Beatle to this Fab Four. While many of the interiors of the comedy were filmed on a Queens soundstage, the program also had a lot of "on location" scenes in Manhattan, where the characters ate, drank, shopped, and gossiped. After all, there is a reason for the word "sex" in the show's title, isn't there?
In this bus tour, led by sassy comedic guides, the fun day starts at the Plaza Hotel, where Carrie reenacted The Way We Were when meeting Mr. Big. See the church where Samantha met a certain Friar (rhymes with luck, we can't put the real name here). Indulge in sweets at Magnolia Bakery, where Carrie and Miranda munched out on cupcakes while talking about Aidan. And don't forget ABC Carpet Home, where Charlotte argued with Trey's mother, Bunny, over a bed. Because the tour covers the whole city, you'll get an insider's look at Manhattan.
Of course Carrie's brownstone stoop, shown in so many Sex and the City scenes, is a key part of the tour. So is the Pleasure Chest, the adult store where Charlotte bought her "Rabbit" toy. The GoBe tour also includes the ability to engage in retail therapy in some of the boutiques seen on the show. Plus, you can enjoy a Cosmopolitan, just like the characters did. Even if you're a SATC superfan, you'll still learn more about the show.
Since Sex and the City is a show about women's sexual exploits in the big city, it featured plenty of attractive men. Some of the actors were well-known at the time, but there were a few future stars on the show. This included Mad Men's John Slattery as a NYC politician who wanted Carrie to do a very wet fetish. Daniel Sunjata played Louis Leroy, a young sailor in town for Fleet Week, and comedian Will Arnett was Miranda's beau, who had a penchant for public sex.
