New York tip | SATC tour

This month I’ll take you on tour, a tour very close to my home in New York City… Follow in the footsteps of Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda, the four of New York’s most eligible bachelorettes. Drink where they drink, shop where they shop, and gossip where they gossip.

This three-and-a-half-hour guided bus SATC tour starts at the Pulitzer Fountain on 5th Avenue between 58th and 59th St. The Sex and the City bus and the guide of the bus tour are both waiting at this fountain. You can recognize the guide waiving with her blue umbrella!;) The fountain is located nearby the famous Plaza Hotel (the place where Carrie’s big love, Big, celebrated his engagement to Natasha).”


Take a seat
After showing your ticket, $46 per person, to the guide you can take a seat in the bus. In order to make sure you are able to join the SATC tour, I advice you to book your tickets in advance. The bus is equipped with air-conditioning and there are hanging TV screens in the entire bus. I recommend, if possible, to take a seat at the left side of the bus, because most locations on the tour are, crazy enough, on that side.

The film sets
Throughout the whole tour the guide will tell you everything about the film sets. You drive along almost all locations and when you are passing a set the corresponding scene will be shown on the TV screen(s) in the bus.

Four different stops
1. Sex shop Pleasure Chest| where Charlotte bought her Rabbit.

2. Buddakan restaurant| where Carrie and Big held their rehearsal dinner.

3. Bleecker Street and Magnolia Bakery| You can visit all shops in Bleecker Street but should definitely stop at Magnolia Bakery. When you return to the bus, you get a delicious cupcake from this famous place, where Carrie and Miranda ate a cupcake as well.

4. Scout Bar| the bar Steve and Aiden opened together. The bar is actually called Onieal’s and has been around since the 20th century. This is where you order a Cosmo, for the true SATC experience. Unfortunately this cocktail isn’t free, because of the strict American laws regarding alcohol. However, you get a 3,- discount;) Lovely way to end this SATC tour!

New York public library
After visiting Scout Bar, the bus brings you to the “last stop” near Times Square. Here you can have a look at the HBO store and you can visit the New York Public Library (the location where the wedding of Carrie and Big had to take place).

For true fans of SATC this tour is really a must when visiting New York.Have fun ladies, you will totally enjoy it!
