The onset of COVID-19 may have slowed down international travel but it’s sparked a curiosity to explore local attractions. It’s also given people more time to watch television. These two trends combined created a unique opportunity for On Location Tours, a leading New York City Tour Company providing tours of movie and TV sets, to develop its latest offering – a private tour based on Amazon’s “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” that features the 1957 Studebaker Commander featured in all three seasons.
This tour has been adopted to support the special restrictions that COVID-19 has brought to the tourism industry. Instead of the larger group tours, On Location Tours now features, private tours to keep the experiences fun and safe. At the start of the tour, guests will be greeted by a guide dressed as The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel herself- with a matching mask- right in front of that classic 1957 Studebaker Commander. During the tour guests will have the chance to see the comedy club where Midge’s journey begins, the vintage music shop filled with old records and instruments, and the cafe where the first cappuccino was served in the USA. The original cappuccino machine is still in the cafe.
Throughout the tour, the guide shares fun facts and insider tips. Fans of this show are sure to love this experience- maybe even more than Midge loves her famous black-and-white cookies! The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel tour is a good option for anyone itching for their favorite TV show to return or looking for behind the scenes of filming a period specific TV series.
