Monday Madness- Gossip Girl Tour

(Last Updated On: February 7, 2013)


Confession- I am a Gossip Girl addict.   There is just something about the fictional world of Manhattan’s elite that draws me in week after week.   Its a gloriously addicting combination of fashion, drama and New York City culture and I love every minute of it.  This past summer, I had the pleasure of staying on the Upper East Side at the Affinia Gardens Hotel and I found myself constantly looking for Gossip Girl sites as I walked the neighborhood.   Unfortunately, I had no idea where anything was and didn’t find Constance or St Judes! I wish I would have known about On Location Tours.

On Location Tours is a company specializing in bringing tourists into the world of New York tv and movies.  Trekaroo’s own Liling Pang recently had the privilege of taking the New York Movies and TV Sites Tour with her seven year old and had a great time.  During the 3.5 hour bus tour they went from location to location, watching movie clips featuring the very sites they were visiting.  Rebecca, their guide, was a walking encyclopedia of information, making the entire experience that much more enjoyable.  Liling  recommends the tour for any movie buff and suggests that children be at least 7 due to the duration of the experience.  You can read her entire review here.

In addition to the tour mentioned above,  On Location Tours also features a Classic New York Movie Sites tour, Sopranos Sites tour, and a Gossip Girl Sites tour.  We are excited to announce the company has offered a 20% discount on all mentioned tours to Trekaroo readers- simply use the code TREK20 when purchasing tickets.

Now, on to the giveaway….

The Steal:  Win 2 Tickets to On Location Tour’s Gossip Girl Sites Tour
