These famous landmarks represent just two of the many films that will be explored on the 'Holiday Lights & Movie Sites' tour of New York City. Let On Location Tours guide you around the shooting locations of your favourite festive flicks.

Tour Itinerary:

If you plan on spending the Christmas season in New York City then consider using some of that time to discover the lights and sights of the Big Apple's most iconic filming locations.

The Holiday Lights & Movie Sites tour is guided by a local New York actor or actress who can provide professional insights into each production as well as share some entertaining anecdotes about their own experiences in the film industry.

This tour is ideal for individuals, families or groups of friends who want to explore the landmarks and districts that characterise their favourite festive classics. Travel to the famous tree at the Rockefeller Centre where Macaulay Culkin reunites with his mum in Home Alone 2. See the apartment where Buddy the Elf (Will Ferrell) stays with his dad during his visit to New York City in Elf. And ogle the vibrant window displays at Bloomingdales, Lord & Taylor, and the same Macy's you might remember from Miracle on 31st Street.

The tour departs from 1889 Broadway at 63rd Street outside Starbucks. Please meet your tour guide there. The guide will be holding up a sign with the tour name printed on it.
