    The Sex and the City bus tour through Manhattan is the ultimate experience for fans of the show. For many, it has always been a dream to dream to see all the spots featured in the show. Follow Carrie (played by Sarah Jessica Parker) through New York City and see where Sex and the City was filmed. This is also an interesting tour for those who are generally interested in the areas around West Village and SoHo.

    Inside the bus, you get to watch scenes of  Sex and the City and the very friendly guide (who is of course also a huge fan) makes it a fun and interactive experience. You will also leave the bus when you walk to see the main spots of the tour.

    What to expect

    The big highlight of the tour is stopping by in front of Carrie’s house. You will get many flashbacks of the show when you are standing in front of the famous stairs. You will also get to visit the Magnolia Bakery and taste the sweet & delicious cupcakes the girls ate so many times before. You will also get the chance to drink a cosmopolitan at Scout’s- Carries favorite pub. Take a walk in West Village and get to know some interesting facts about the show and its actors. If you’re very lucky you might also catch a glimpse of Jessica Parker herself as she lives her everyday life in NYC.

    The Sex and the City tours in New York City are among the most popular tours of all – in addition to the Sex and the City tour by bus, there is this walking tour that takes you to the most important spots of Carrie, Samantha, Miranda and Charlotte.

    What to expect on the three-hour Sex and the City Hotspots Tour in New York

    You will meet with a local guide at Central Park to start your tour. The first destination is the famous The Plaza Hotel, which played an important role between Carrie and her Mr. Big at the end of season 2.

    After that, you’ll head to Perry Street in beautiful West Village – it’s one of my absolute favorite neighborhoods in New York (not only because of Sex and the City). As fans of Sex and the City New York, you of course know what is located here: the apartment of Carrie Bradshaw

    What can’t be missed on a Sex and the City tour? The Magnolia Bakery! Although it was only featured briefly on the show, it became one of the most important spots for Sex and the City fans. Do just as Carrie and Miranda do: buy a delicious cupcake and you’re good to go!

    By the way, in addition to Magnolia Bakery in the West Village, there are now other branches in New York. You can also buy the cupcakes made famous by Sex and the City at Rockefeller Center, Grand Central Terminal, Bloomingdales, Columbus Circle and the Upper West Side.

    Next stop on the walking tour is the Buddakan restaurant. This is where the rehearsal dinner was held before Carrie’s wedding – and therefore couldn’t be left off the list. 

    The same goes for Onieal’s Bar and Restaurant in Little Italy, which is another important stop. It is just as significant for Sex and the City fans as the Central Perk café is for fans of the “Friends” series.

Hi,

I am looking at doing SATC tour tomorrow? What time does this tour typically finish? Is one of the stops carries apartment or do you just see this from the bus?

Thanks
Emer

Maureen Steinert

Hi Emer,

yes, the tour also makes a stop at the apartment (provided it didn’t change recently)! It’s one of the most popular spots, so I don’t imagine they’d take it out 🙂

We have a flight coming into Newark at 9:15. We r wondering if it is possible to get from Newark to the 11:00 Sex and the City tour on time??

Maureen Steinert

Hi Brittany,

unfortunately, I think this may be a little too close as you may spend some time at immigration + the transfer to Manhattan. If you can, I’d try to book the tour for another day just to be sure. I don’t think the booking is refundable 🙁

Does the tour go to the Statue of Liberty or Brooklyn bridge at all?

Hi Stephanie,
