Oh. My. God. Could this be any more exciting? Just in time for the Friends 25th anniversary, On Location Tours has launched a Friends Virtual Tour, where you can be your own cast member alongside Monica, Rachel, Phoebe, Chandler, Ross and Joey! The Friends Virtual Tour is the latest from Georgette Blau, founder of On Location Tours, one of the world’s largest TV and movie tour companies, based in New York City.
With Covid-19 shutting down tourism, On Location Tours had to “pivot” their business model to ensure a safe experience for everyone. The Friends New York City apartment building was a famous location highlight on the NYC TV and Movie Tour. Since tour operations are on a break due to the coronavirus outbreak, the virtual tour lets any Friends fan jump into second gear, and it will make their day, their week, their month, and even their year!
The tour is hosted by tour guide Roseanne Almanzar, an actress and mother who has been a dedicated staff member of On Location Tours for 20 years. Roseanne takes Friends’ fans on a 40-minute tour to 18 locations made famous by the acclaimed series. Additionally, purchasing a ticket will also grant admission to the virtual Friends trivia night, which On Location Tours holds monthly. The trivia ticket can also be purchased separate from the tour.
If you are based in the US, you can purchase an add-on Friends box shipped to your home address (don’t worry, a smelly cat isn’t included). The box contains a Central Perk mug along with four other surprise keepsake items. The full package (tour, trivia, and goodie box) is $68, and the tour + trivia (no goodie box) is $29.
On Location Tours is one of the world’s largest award-winning TV and movie tour companies and the only one operating in multiple cities. They feature sites from the hottest and latest on the big and small screen. Some of the tours include NYC TV & Movie Tour, When Harry Met Seinfeld Tour, Sex and the City Hotspots, Gossip Girl Sites, Sopranos Sites, TCM Classic Film Tour, Central Park TV & Movie Sites, and Holiday Lights & Movie Sites.
The tour is just under an hour long and takes you through many locations you will recognize right away if you are a super fan of the show. There are some fun facts and cool trivia thrown in too for good measure. Think of it as a walk down memory lane of one the best shows many of us grew up watching...All this to say...
I've watched it and it was fun! Highly recommend if you are a fan of the show and would like to enjoy this experience in the comfort and safety of your own home with your closest friends and family. Head on over to the link below to get your tickets now!
Full disclosure: I was provided a preview link to watch the virtual tour and I will earn a small affiliate commission (at no extra cost to you) should you choose to purchase tickets via any of the links in this post. Thanks!
Sharing a few products that I love. Some are affiliate links, some are not, some I was introduced to and some I happened to chance upon. Enjoy!
