While a chartered yacht is a comfortable way to tour the seas, it can only navigate city streets with the help of hundreds of unhappy pack goats. Tour Washington DC in comfort with today's Groupon: for $20, you get a guided bus and walking tour of more than 30 local TV and film sites from On Location Tours, Inc. (a $40 value, fees included). Tours take place every Saturday at 10 a.m., year-round and in all weather conditions.

Over the course of 3 hours, On Location Tours will transport you to a multitude of memorable TV and movie sites, each haunted with the ghosts of brilliant dialogue and the lingering scents of celebrity gym bags. You’ll get to shop at the mall from No Way Out and True Lies, see the bar from St. Elmo’s Fire, and feel your head spin on the steps of The Exorcist house. Fervent film-philes can finally see where Wedding Crashers, Thank You For Smoking, X-Files, Independence Day, Forrest Gump, G.I. Joe, Night at the Museum 2, and National Treasure were staged. On the bus, show off your pipes and your encyclopedic knowledge of TV theme songs as a local actor leads a sing-a-long and supplies the history of each passing site.


On Location Tours’ DC tour has been featured in the Washington Post and Washington City Paper. Seven TripAdvisors give it an average of 4.5 owl eyes.

On Location Tours

It doesn't matter if you've never been to New York City in your life: you still know it. So beloved is the city by the makers of movies and TV shows that visitors can hardly take a walk without being reminded of some iconic scene. There's F.A.O. Schwarz, where Tom Hanks played the giant piano in Big, there's the apartment building that Holly Golightly called home in Breakfast at Tiffany's, and there's the Empire State Building, fitted with gorilla wire since the events of King Kong. On Location Tours takes guests of the city on a curated adventure through all of these hotspots and more. The Sex and the City Hotspots tour ventures through a world of classy bars, decadent cupcakes, and saucy adult toy stores, while the Sopranos Sites tour starts in midtown Manhattan and winds through New Jersey locales such as the Bada Bing, Barone Sanitation, and the diner from that unforgettable final scene. Other tours focus on the many films captured at Central Park and the bars, restaurants, and nightclubs celebrities go to in real life to manufacture headlines for the tabloids.

It was well organized and interesting
Karen F. · January 1, 2016
It's was fun. Although they make it seem as though you will see famous people. Not likely. More gossip about the famous and cool info. I would recommend it.
