This afternoon my girlfriends and I will be taking a tour through New York. While I’ve seen the city several times, I’m really looking forward to seeing more intricate areas. We are taking the Sex in the City tour, since this was the show we all watched in college. It lasts about 3 hours and includes all the hotspots from the tv show and movies.

Tips for picking out a big city tour:

1. History – What to learn more about a city? Choose a tour that gives you the history of the city. In most of these tours, you’ll learn a lot about the buildings and the political system.

2. Fun – Been to the city before and just want a fun tour? Choose something off the wall like a Mafia tour or odd/unique residents of “____”.

3. Family friendly – Taking kids? Be sure to find a on/off tour. On/off tours allow you to get on when you like and leave when you like {just to get on again later}. They can be a little more pricey and you might miss a few city insight, but it’s very helpful when traveling with kids {especially younger ones!}.

Have you ever taken a city tour? Where? What did you like/dislike?

I sure hope you did the SITC tour, can’t wait to hear all about it (and the entire trip)! I’ve never taken a city tour but wish I had in a few European cities. I would think you can get good information and then go back and further explore places of interest.

Hope you’re having fun!!!
