Fiction pops out from the screen and into full three-dimensional life courtesy of On Location Tours. From a certain bar where "Everybody knows your name" to a Nazi-like soup maker's original spot, New York City and Boston have served as the backdrop to some of pop culture's most iconic sites. Though the cameras have long since left, On Location Tours' goal is to bring sightseers face-to-face with iconic locations seen in shows like Mad Men and Friends and films like Good Will Hunting and American Hustle. So, while spacious tour busses charter passengers through New York and Boston's most famous neighborhoods, local actors wax poetic on the history of these spots and the actors who have cemented their status as American pop-culture landmarks. On Location Tours shuttles more than 100,000 tourists a year, and has been featured in national press such as Entertainment Weekly , The Wall Street Journal, and 60 Minutes.
