If you can’t live like or be a celebrity, the next best thing is to check them out and all the juicy gossip with the main insiders on celeb secrets, TMZ.com. They recently launched with On Location Tours a 2-hour long TMZ New York City Bus Tour, based on their long-running Los Angeles bus tour. The one of a kind, show-on-wheels integrates clips from the show with real life NYC sites through hot spots like Chelsea, SoHo, Greenwich Village and Tribeca. The tour takes place on a custom-designed 52-passenger bus with state-of-the-art audio and video system, and it hosted by one out of only five TMZ staffers and tour leaders (We had the charming, funny Matt from Australia Idol).
You get to check out NYC landmarks like Times Square, Madison Square Garden, The Highline, Chelsea Piers and The Intrepid while getting a healthy dose of pop culture.
Among the highlights: The Plaza hotel (where Charlie Sheen trashed his room on a drug-fueled binge with a hooker), The Lindsay Lohan Terror Zones (places Lindsay has assaulted people…including Avenue, Marquee and The Dream Hotel) and Dos Caminos, a favorite of Jessica Simpson.
The tour takes place on a custom-designed, 52-passenger bus with a state-of-the-art audio/video system, and is hosted by carefully cast, hysterical TMZ tour guides.
The model for the tour is based on TMZ’s long-running Los Angeles bus tour.
